    They've just done a table comparing Liverpool with Plymouth, Plymouth's turnover is c£6m....what was ours in thr last accounts c£4.8m.

    How depressing is that.

    To be fair, they're sponsored by Ginster's, so they have an advantage on the pie money ;)

    Fisher's missing a trick there ;) :)

    Liverpool made 10 changes. No doubt lots of other Prem teams are playing weakened teams. Yet in the tournament designed for lower league teams we are only allowed a few changes so that the Prem teams can play their youngsters against strong opposition.
    Utter disgrace. No way will I ever watch these weakened teams on TV or attend CCFC v an U23 team.

    How far the FA Cup has fallen.

    It was a trophy admired across the world and the trophy to win if you couldn't win the league. No-one would have ever dreamed of fielding a weakened team a few years back.

    Now that competition is treated with contempt by clubs and it is has lost a lot of its value.

    What's annoying, is the clubs who treat it with contempt, Man U, Chelsea, Man City etc, still end up winning it :mad:

    Watching the Spurs v Villa game now is really boring it's making watching paint dry seem exciting !

    And the same could well happen with the JPT or whatever its called now. Would you bet against the 'big' teams still in the competition suddenly bringing in first teamers if they have a sniff of Wembley.
