May have been said before but they should have these games midweek with a result on the night.

This only suits the big teams.

Smaller clubs survive by doing well the competition, not to mention the lower tier teams getting a glamorous fixture against one of the top teams.

TV money, gate reciepts, merchandise etc..

It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.

Maybe so, but the big teams never play their best team against the minnows, usually fielding youth players, reserves with a few first team players. It's not like it was in the 80's where a Liverpool team would play its best team against the sh*t sides. It was important then. Its utterly meaningless now. The only way to save the competition would be as DennisIrwin says play it like the Carling Cup midweek under the lights and give a Champions League place for the winner. I personally rank the Carling Cup far higher these days. Far more exciting and you hardly know its on until all the sh*t teams have been knocked out.

Liverpool played a full team today - apart from Mignolet.

Times have changed, these fringe players are usually full international players too.

Really have no interest in the FA cup, way too many matches that are not worth watching.

Wigan winning the cup last year was the highlight of the English football season. THey are great days when they come about. You just can't beat watching the big boys get beaten.

Hopefully Watford hang on here. Be a great day. Watford Clap

Hard to see past an all-Merseyside final this year. The only thing that can stop it is the draw. 

The natural order is reasserting itself.

Yahoo Clap Great draw. This season is going to have some amount of twists and turns left in it yet.
