    The magic of the f****** Cup......

    I swear they're trying their best to annoy and frustrate as many fans as possible every year so that in the end people view it like they view International breaks. An annoying interloper upsetting the sacred schedule of the Premier League........

    One of the reasons I am not too bothered about the FAC these days..KO times & match days all over the place nowadays.
    Oh for the days of FA Cup games being played at 3pm on a Saturday..

    FA Cup: Lack of 3pm kick-offs 'diminishes magic of the day', says FSF



    Having less than a third of this season's FA Cup third-round matches in the traditional 3pm kick-off slot "diminishes the magic of the day", a supporters' group has claimed.

    Only 10 of the 32 fixtures will start at that time on Saturday, 5 January.

    The Football Association's new six-year, 820m overseas TV contract has contributed to a number of changes.

    "There's a grave danger that they might threaten the magic of the FA Cup," the Football Supporters' Federation said.

    I wonder what day and KO time we would have got for our game with Arsenal if it had happened.

    We've been given 4168 tickets for our game. Don't think we'll sell out but it seems like every man and his dog is going to this one so hopefully between 2500-3000.
