I'd quite like to win it. A trophy is a trophy. A trophy which is competed for nationally is fairly prestigious in my eyes and I'd welcome a trip to Wembley.

Yeah it did us a lot of good last season with arguably a better team, our focus should be on winning this urine poor league that is there for the taking, play the fringe team or whatever they are called these days.

I'll be gutted if he does take the competition seriously. It played a role in buggering up our last two seasons. We do what Hull did in the Europa Cup and field a weakened side.

he should take it seriously to some degree, but i wouldn't be too bothered if we got knocked out, even if it was a team like coalville, maybe play some youth.

Well, I'd enjoy the day out at Wembley if it came along. It didn't do us any harm winning the Football League Trophy in '98, it didn't do Cambridge any harm, nor York City a couple of seasons previously. Winning games breeds confidence and a winning mentality. We need that back at Blunder Park.

Everyone is whinging about Hurst, we're second in the league and his put his neck on the line and said he wants the Trophy as well. We're not conceding many goals, we've got one of the league's top scorers plus people like Disley and Nielson chipping in. Things are much brighter than people come on here and say. Barnet may well be running away with it but they've got to come to Blundell Park and get a result and we've still to go there. That's 6 points. Yes, today was disappointing but we've only lost one in ten which is bloody good going.

We have a big enough squad to at least take it seriously to some degree without playing a side that is very weak.  Since most people on here can't agree about our best 11, and the fact that we don't play competitive reserve games, surely means we could benefit from the Trophy. It could ensure those who've suffered in not playing recently (Paddy, Bignot, Hannah, plus give Hamish a run) can get valuable game time so they are ready when needed.
Also, I'm sure JF will not want to squander any chance of bringing some extra cash in, and may "suggest" this to PH

It's so comforting to know that he's taking the trophy serious yet it didn't really matter if we lost a league game.  Jeez, is this guy for real?

We haven't got a league game now until 19th December, we need to field our strongest team on 13th in the FA trophy game to keep them match fit, IMO. UTM

Is that the same Hull who are currently sitting 1 point off the bottom of their league?

I'm not saying we should be playing our strongest team but it's hardly done Hull any good so far this season has it.

We should field our strongest team every single match whether it be cup, league or friendly.
Plying time improves the team.
This is not a tin pot Trophy. It could net us £300,000 and a fantastic day out to London
Anyone who says otherwise is a complete muppet!!!

On the 13th we should make sure our kids get a game. We can't play anyone who is vital to our promotion ( Who'd risk Pearson, Magnay or Arnold for this tournament) push as we can't risk injuries/ suspensions that effect our league. So our reserve Keeper, back four of Bignot, Doig, Humble, Walker, Midfield of Mackreth, Winfarrah, Mclaughlin and the new loan winger, upfront Hannah and Hamish. Subs Pittmann (maybe worth some more game time) Clay (likewise) Bemrose any other kids that are there. Give Pearson, Shop, Mckeown, Toto, Arnold, Brown, Disley a break tell em to get some rest for the second half of the season.

You didn't go to the FA Cup 2nd Round Replay at Halifax in December 1987 then. The pitch gradually turned white in front of your face as it became frozen whilst the game was going on and I still can't believe the game wasn't abandoned. We were stood in an open corner and we lost 2-0 to make things worse as well.

To the guy asking where I got my figure from:
If a Wembley ticket costs £40 and 25,000 go then multiply those two then divide that by two is 500,000
For each team.
Plus the winners receive £50,000 (well they did in 2013)
Then there is a financial reward for each round you get to.
My earlier figure of it being worth £250,000 was very conservative.

I might be wrong, I don't know for sure but I reckon that's about right.

We need to go for it!!!

In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

We very nearly won that match at Wembley.
York City and Cambridge both won it and achieved promotion.
Saying it affects chances of promotion is horse excrement and just Another way to attack Paul Hurst.
Get behind your team in everything!!!

Not only was it freezing cold at Wembley, but we had to sit there for another 30 mins ET, plus penalties, plus breaks and then lose!   I was very well wrapped up and colder than most winter games at BP.
