Away to Cardiff. Not easy game
Not bothered about FA Cup to be honest. Sooner we are out of it the better in my opinion as it is a distraction from the serious business of making the play offs.

Agree, but would be good to put one over Cardiff

Agreed it is a distraction,but on the other hand'it would be interesting to have a cup run and give button/seggesonn and company a run out.We have a biggish squad building up and there might be a few disgruntled players waiting in the wings for a game. I think that jokanavic is still feeling his way around team formations and there is still a lot to find out about different players playing together if that makes any sense!!!

It would be great to have a cup run and maybe upset a few big teams along the way. Anyone who was around in 1975 will know what i mean. As freddie fulham would say- we can dream

I was at that final and it was a great time and a fantastic couple of years but theee are different times and clubs like ours can't compete on so many fronts these days.

We're four wins away from a FA semi at Wembley and three points off a play off place with a possible final at Wembley. This gives us things to look forward to and livens up a season which could easily degenerate into a mid table sleepwalk against the likes of Derby, Wolves Barnsley etc. Let's go for it and if we don't get to Wembley we might get a big day against the likes of Man City or Arsenal and then who knows?

MST you should be ashamed. No interest in the game unless Fulham are involved. Hopefully the young kids dont follow your example.

It is a crying shame the way the FACup has been systematically destroyed in the pursuit of European riches that only a handful of teams can aspire to
I can fully understand the soul less money men happily marching over the remains of our once proud competition
They have no interest in the game or tradition just how much their greedy snouts can glean from the trough
True football supporters should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves for paying lip service to this nonsense
The FACup should never be an unwanted distraction it should be the dream of all football followers throughout the country.
I was lucky enough to attend every match in our run up to the final of 1975 and can honestly say my greatest moment following our wonderful team throughout the past 50 years was John Mitchells last gasp effort squeezing over the Brummie goal line
Yes the 2010 Cup run in Europe was magnificent but pales alongside the antics of 75, sadly the Mitchell moment will be denied to future generations of football devotees as the grand old tournament is ignored and constantly de-valued by the very people that should be fighting to keep it alive.

Harry I don't understand your post; what is it, exactly, I need to be ashamed of?? Bit strong either way because, as far as I know, I haven't done too much in my 58 yeas of which I should be ashamed.

Let's assemble an FA cup squad, with players completely different from those currently playing in the league, and give it to Stuart Gray to manage exclusively. Of course he stays in his capacity at the club but in the FA cup, he is given freedom to operate as a head coach, with Joka just showing up to observe. When the FA cup run comes to an end, everything continues normally.
