Unfuckingbelievable the FA are deternmined to finish the FA Cup (final on 1st August) The one tournament that could be abandoned without too much argument (as opposed to EFL and Premier League) and the FA want it played to completion Madness!


Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

Money. That's all it is to the FA. They receive millions in TV rights for the final to be shown all around the world. Regardless of whether there are any fans in Wembley, the income from that is nothing compared to the money from TV coverage.

Are we not? That's a pity. I thought we had a home game against Cheshunt Town in the semis, the other game being Chelsea and Liverpool.

Or did I dream it?

If the FA Cup is to be completed then I thought Jamie Carragher's idea that it should be played as a 9 day tournament after all the Premiership games are completed was quite good as I'm sure Sheffield United, Norwich and Newcastle would be really up for that once their final league position is known.

Day 1....QF 1 & QF 2
Day 2....QF 3 & QF 4
Day 5....SF 1 & SF 2
Day 9....F
or some other variation.

It's actually one competition that can be handled due to the amount of teams left in it.

Maybe but is it really necessary, hardly vital to the future of football in England

The Premier league are already playing 92 fixtures, what difference is an extra 7 games going to make. Can't see a problem with it really.

The ironic thing is the clubs themselves receive peanuts.
