12pm KO?

A few games on at that time-any ideas why?

Is it televised? If so where?

I believe we are live on BT Sports via the red button.

Will be strange, as I would expect Norwich to play their reserves, as they will have all eyes on autos.

Financially, at least short-term, there may be pressure to play a strong team to hopefully progress through to the next round, though a good opportunity to give some minutes out to peripheral players.

Prize fund is not worth a spit in the ocean. The money is in crowds, and qualifying for europe.
Around 60k if we win at Norwich. 20k if we don't. That will pay for the hotel, bus ride and bacon sarnies. Even a losing semi-finalist gets just 450k which would not by Godden's boot straps. Perspective. We need to throw everything at the league and ensure we stay up and progress.

What about the tv revenue?

Agree with the sentiment but the reasoning is a bit out. 450k would easily buy you Godden in full.

Why Billson and not Camp?

Guessing Camp will have a hefty appearance fee. Plus, what do we gain from playing Camp? May as well give Billson the experience. If he’s not ready just play Wilson

Wouldn’t be disappointed with a weaker team at all. Just avoid embarrassment.

I’m not sure focussing on the financial gain for a cup run, if it compromises us staying in the Championship.
£60k for a win in round 3 .... even if we make the semi final and lose but get £450k , we might make £750k on the cup run without crowds v £7m for staying up.

If MR thinks we can play a full strength team through the cup games and it not risk our Championship status, then I back him.

Support the decision.... whatever it is. PUSB

Go for it. Do not play a weakened team. You can hardly call out big sides for devaluing an esteemed competition and then do it yourself.
We saw with Millwall that a break didn't necessarily help either.

More cash, more confidence, more profile for people to join us / our players' value to go up... and if we can't cope with an extra 90 minutes in a season, what's the point.

I dont think we'll see vast changes. It's a week after Millwall and then we have a week until next game. No need to rest purely down to fixtures. Keep the core and maybe give minutes to some fringe players, without the fear of points being lost.

£450k is about a month's turnover in a L1 year with gates.

You've got off to a flyer this year!

Are there any financial penalties in the Cup for playing a weaker team?

Incidentally, fitness wise we looked far more energetic than Millwall on Saturday, maybe our long break vs Championship sides not really having one will start to tell now, especially now we've got Dabo the machine at full fitness.

The good old FA have said [in a panic?]that ties will be played,worrying about the increasing cancellations and new mutant virus.
All you need ,they have said,is 14 fit players to play,no mention of the usual bollox.....!!!!!
So,MR could give players plenty of rest,a free hit,he didn't enjoy the journey across to Norwich for the league clash,so won't be taking this too seriously i think???

I would make some changes, but not play the under 23s as some are suggesting we do. It is the FA Cup after all.
