    Anyone else prepared to forfeit the Palace game?

    Outrageous to some, but . . .

    With the 3rd round FA Cup tie against Palarse looming, and with our league form slipping, is anyone else prepared to forfeit this game? I know that to many it's versus our sworn enemy, but surely Premier League survival has to come first. We will doubtless be fielding many squad players in this competition anyway.

    Cowfold Seagull dons his hard hat, in readiness for the abuse that will surely follow.

      Even if it's the only round we get through, it's a win I'd like, and one cup game won't dent the Prem schedule much!

      Definitely not ! Games like this are what football is all about. Just wish I could be there but no chance on a Monday night.

      No. Games against them are important, got to try and win.

      No !!
      900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      Let's hope BOTH clubs aren't prepared to forfeit the tie in search of Premier League survival, else we'll be there all night.

      As long as both us and Man City are knocked out before the quarter finals I don't really mind, although would much rather lose in the 4th or 5th rounds

      If it's guaranteed safety, yes.

      Otherwise no way. I am not spending £25 on a ticket and organising an extra coach for Mid Sussex Seagulls members to throw a match against the gate crashing pyrotechs.

      You never know, the game may go to a replay, refereed by the modern day version of Ron Challis, in which twenty seven penalties will be awarded, numerous players sent off, and Palarse win 1-0. Cue a riot.

      This shitty attitude of picking and choosing when to send out the strongest team has to end. The Albion have been guilty of sending out a weakened team in the cup competitions for years now, and there was even a thread on here the other day advocating sending out a weakened team against 'The Big Six' in order to give the first choice players yet more resting time. Because, let's face it, the frequent international breaks are barely enough downtime for these precious souls.
