Shows the greatest cup competition in the world, the FA cup, zero respect. What a load of old shit...

I concur. What a load of bollocks.

Really can't understand teams like Leicester resting players when winning the FA Cup would be huge. Surely they should rest players in the premier league and go for the cups. They are unlikely to be relegated and top 6 would be a surprise too.

Agree with you totally Paul. Its a disgrace how these prem clubs and some championship treat the F A Cup

To be fair to Leicester, Rich posted next door that they'd had 4 games in 11 days.

Yesterday was embarrassing to say the least but like Marky says 4 games in 11 days etc. The team selection even taking that on board was poor imo and the under 21’s would have given a better account for themselves. Regrettably Sky money is bigger than BBC/BT

The Premier league was the beginning of the ruin of our National game all big business and not a sporting bone in its body...

Yep agree totally,i remember the days when a manager would be sacked for some of the cup results we have seen recently.
They do the same in the europa league,not interested in winning it (unless they reach the last 4 or 8 then they may play their full team) just interested in not being relegated or getting a top 4 finnish, in the premiership, they forget footballs all about winning trophys .
