I remember listening to the 3rd Round Cup Draw while playing footie in the playground at Hele's We drew MU at home : that's MU with Charlton, Best, Law, Stiles et al. Farking brilliant for me and me mates Now the miserable sods have changed the time of the draw and many don"t care anyway. Even abroad the final used to be shown everywhere.I take your point Mike, I cant get excited about the FA Cup anymore, I'm not concerned at all that our game has no iFollow coverage. I want us to win, but we've got to get back to league action and dispel the misery and memory of our more recent games. We're in freefall league wise, and already another top five team has two games in hand of us.
You're right Billy. I forgot about that.I'm up for the cup. Revenge today please chaps and 36k in the bank. COYR

30 years ago the FA Cup would cause considerable excitement. Now it's just another competition like any other.
Sad to think all that history has gone to waste.
Congratulations to the FA for holding the semi-finals at Wembley, for spreading out the matchdays, and for bigging up the Premier League so much that the FA Cup is now just an afterthought.
