Who do you want to win now? I'm with Forest, a team I briefly supported in my distant Uni days!

Not really bothered who wins, would be nice if a non premier league team won it.  It's more interesting to me before the final watching the lower league teams trying to do a giant killing.

Interesting >> [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FA_Cup#Winners_from_outside_the_top_division]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FA_Cup#Winners_from_outside_the_top_division[/url]
Quoted Text
Since the foundation of the Football League, Tottenham Hotspur in 1901 have been the only non-league winners of the FA Cup. They were then playing in the Southern League and were elected to the Football League only in 1908. At that time the Football League consisted of two 18-team divisions.

In the history of the FA Cup, only eight teams who were playing outside the top level of English football have gone on to win the competition, the most recent being West Ham United, who beat Arsenal in 1980. With the exception of Tottenham in 1901, these clubs were all playing in the old Second Division. No other Third Division or lower side has won the trophy or even reached the final since the Football League was founded.

One of the most notable upsets in the final occurred when Sunderland beat Leeds United 1–0 in 1973. That season, Leeds finished third in the First Division, while Sunderland were in the Second Division. Three years later, Second Division Southampton also won the Cup, when they beat First Division Manchester United by the same 1–0 scoreline. The other Second Division winners of the FA Cup are Notts County in 1894; Wolverhampton Wanderers in 1908; Barnsley in 1912; and West Bromwich Albion in 1931. West Bromwich Albion are the only team to have won the FA Cup and promotion from the Second Division in the same season.

The FA Cup final has never been contested by two teams from outside the top division. Uniquely, in 2007–08 three of the four semi-finalists (Barnsley, Cardiff City and West Bromwich Albion), were from outside the top division, although the single Premier League team remaining, Portsmouth, went on to win the competition that year.

Remember the prize money though, we would have got £67K if we had won yesterday, plus gate receipts from next round which would have been useful. Still league results went our way plus Kiddi got replay and had their new years day game called off. Lets hope we can get all players back fit and consolidate our play off spot.

If weather does not intervene think we will have a good idea where our fortunes lie by the end of this month.
