    I thought that about league cup but we still got big crowds

    Ture.

    We had a half arsed approach towards that but given our approach to the Fleetwood game wasn't even half arsed I think the penny will drop and people won't bother.

    Against Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester City though. Not Fleetwood.

    Looks like demand exceeded what they expected. Tickets are now available in most of the Kop, and some of the North Stand. Nothing in the East Stand though.

    The West Stand is pretty much sold out (a few single seats available). SK 3 and 4 also pretty full. Plenty of seats available in SK2

    But some people will want to see games against 'big' teams, even if it's below strength.

    They should give free entrance for those that made the journey for that pitiful excuse of a performance. Although I’m not sure even that would tempt me. The club don’t give two hoots about the FA Cup, so why should I?

    Well I'm looking forward to this one even if some miserable buggers aren't.

    3-0 City - Vardy hat trick. ;)

    I expect so.

    I'd like us to take this competition a bit more seriously. We're looking like we're going to be easily safe this year - only 9 more points needed. Let's go for cup glory. Particularly as we know we've drawn another lower league team in the next round if we get through this. I'd avoid starting Benalouane at all costs - Dragovic + another for me, maybe Huth if he's ready? I'd go with Silva + Iborra in midfield, Gray + Albrighton out wide and probably Slim + Iheanacho up front to start and make sure we take the big guns Vardy and Mahrez on the bench in case it's not going to plan with 20 or 30 to go....

    Full strength for me including JV and RM, for the reasons in the first half of your post. We can win all three matches, but I’d rather win this and Peterboro and drop points v Watford on Saturday than the other way round. We can still get 7th (6th?) if we drop points Saturday, we won’t be able to win the cup if we do something silly tomorrow.

    I suspect it won’t happen though and that Slim will lead the line.

    5th round is very likely if we treat the competition and the teams against us with respect, playing on a Tuesday and a Saturday is no great hardship IMO, I would still start with Silva to give him game time, not too sure about iheanacho I would like to see Thomas given a go or at least be on the bench.

    Jakupovic
    Amartey
    Dragovic
    Morgan (if fit) or Maguire
    Chilwell
    Gray
    Silva
    Iborra/King
    Albrighton
    Slimani
    Ulloa/Iheanacho

    That's a more than adequate team to beat Fleetwood.

    Isn’t Chilwell suspended?

    Completely agree with your sentiments. Won’t happen in a million years though.

    I haven’t seen us get to the semis of the FA Cup in my lifetime, but sadly one or two places difference in the Premier League is worth far more financially to the club than winning the FA Cup. Until that changes, clubs like ours won’t take the FA Cup seriously.

    I would argue that. A place in Europe surely is worth more than one or two places in the league.
