Losing last nights fixture made me wonder...

Would our club rather a decent FA Cup run, or win the leasing.com (JPT) trophy?

Financially I assume the FA cup provides more income, but the opportunity for us to win a trophy I feel is maybe realistic this year. Be interesting to know what MT feels too.

Cup run. Winning the leasing.com trophy means absolutely nothing to me as a fan. Reaching say the 5th round of the FA Cup does.

As regards what the club would prefer in terms of money, that's up to them.

Promotion everytime, we are using the Leasing.com trophy to exercise the youngsters with a mix of seniors, whether this continues to be seen but from reading Lambert's comments that is the way a lot of clubs seem to be viewing the trophy. 40k would be nice but we can do without the distractions that runs alongside a cup run if we want to achieve autos - look at last night's crocked/susepended list.

I'd rather we didn't win the leasing.com trophy and focused on the league. The competition holds no prestige whatsoever and I couldn't give a rats arse who wins it. Staying in that competition could quite easily derail our promotion hopes, which with how tight the division looks this season, could happen very quickly if we take our eye off the ball for the turkeys.com trophy.

I thought the thread was about either a cup run or winning the leasing.com trophy. Not promotion? Confused. Obviously i'd take promotion over a good cup run AND winning the leasing.com trophy combined.

Cup run is the obvious answer as bigger crowds prize money and more attention. But ultimate goal has to be promotion through the autos and either could distract from this goal.
