I don't think it's the personnel, per se... I think the officials are so frightened of getting it wrong when it involves one of the media faves, they bottle their decisions, if given the opportunity, to avoid the media outcry.

But the biggest losers are the supporters of the 'Big Clubs' who are denied the opportunity of reaching Wembley. Leeds United fans in today's case, and the supporters of the 'Lesser Clubs' whose youngsters are denied the chance to see the top name players in action.
I'm afraid that the magic of the FA Cup is quickly losing the 'Magic' ingredient.
19 Posted 10/01/2021 at 16:00:12
Everton havent won a cup for going on 26 years, Id say at least 40% of our great supporters have never seen us witness this glory, but if you done a poll on finishing 4th or winning the cup on ToffeeWeb, then more people would vote for the champions lge?

The match is proving to be a harsh reality, but still a fantastic day for the Club.
36 Posted 10/01/2021 at 18:20:56
And the €100 million man comes on for a runabout at Rossett Park.
Bale probably hasn't played at a park this small since he was 15.
Great quip from the commentator: "From Madrid to Marine!"

But good luck to them and theyve banked a few Bob too, and a few good stories to tell about the game.

So come on, Carragher, tell us all why you had to be at College Raad today! And why the BBC focussed on him in the stands but didn't call him out live on air.
49 Posted 10/01/2021 at 20:59:49
I liked the two full backs especially James Joyce, has he always played part time, he always tried to use the ball and I made him Marine's best player on the day.
As you say, Peter, it was a great day for Marine and Crosby to look back on and the money earned today and on the cup run will ensure that there will be no money worries for a couple of seasons.
50 Posted 10/01/2021 at 22:14:06
Joyce is an excellent full back. His counterpart Josh Solomon-Davis is a very good, speedy over-lapping right back with a great recovery tackle, but it wasnt his game today. The two centre backs, Miley and Raven, are a very solid pairing. Which is why I was alarmed when I saw Marine were going for 5 at the back, shades of Davie Moyes bringing on a 3rd centre back to defend a 1-0 lead, causing chaos as nobody knew who was going to attack the ball, who would step back.
But in truth, the gulf between the teams was huge. What a great cup run, through 7 rounds, and a financial reward which I understand is worth something like players wages for 3 years.
51 Posted 10/01/2021 at 23:34:35
Anyway, bothered me a lot more with Klopp being there. He didn't even stay in the same spot.
52 Posted 10/01/2021 at 00:17:23
I shared the broadcast of the game with my Brazilian missus, explaining the history of the cup and comparing Marine to our neighbourhood team playing Flamengo at home. She adored seeing the terrace houses backing on to the 'stadium' with people making a party of it in their backyards.
She laughed out loud when I shared with her info contained in the commentary: the orderly numbers on the fencing separating the houses from the pitch. It is to help the club identify the house they need to knock on to retrieve the ball when launched into someone's backyard!
53 Posted 11/01/2021 at 00:49:26
54 Posted 11/01/2021 at 11:00:16
“Of course it (the Cup run) will come to an end and we will be back to dank, rainy Tuesdays at Brighouse. But we will enjoy that too. I only hope this period of Marine in the sun (not the Sun, it is barred) will open eyes to what non-league football is all about. It is a group of people coming together to enjoy something special. It is about involvement and participation. It encourages families and makes lifelong friendships
When those raucous young men who do boost the team with their support reach my age they will sip their pints and say “Remember the day we played Tottenham Hotspur”.

Home to struggling Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.
I'll settle for that.

The rest of the draw not so much. If we're going to win this, we'll need a lot of luck, and most of it will have to come in the draw.
We need more ties like Liverpool vs Man Utd and the occasional big upset.
71 Posted 11/01/2021 at 20:42:31
I must own up to being one of those who, nowadays, struggle to get excited about the FA Cup. I used to love it – and really looked forward to the drama of the draw (though I preferred it when it was on radio).
I attended all our finals between Watford in '84 and Man Utd in '95. These days, I'm fairly indifferent until or unless the blues reach the semi-final.
Cup Final day – starting at breakfast time on both BBC & ITV – was a highlight of the year.
Perhaps it was ‘Cup Final It's a Knockout” – with family favourite Stuart Hall – that added the family fun element that these days is missing? Not sure why but it doesn't seem very exciting or important any more. Any chance they might bring back Uncle Stuart?

73 Posted 11/01/2021 at 21:00:26
We played them New Years Day 1988 in the league and had to get up at a ridiculous time to catch the coach from the pick up point on the industrial estate between Speke and Hunts Cross for an early kick off.
Then we were back there for the 3rd round about a week later, but it took a fair few replays to finally get through! It felt like we only played Sheffield Wednesday that January.
74 Posted 11/01/2021 at 21:04:14
What a day it used to be, I can still remember Coventry doing a detour before the game to go past the church where two of the hotel guests were getting married, because one of the players said he'd never lost a game in which he'd gone past a church and seen a wedding, and everyone else agreed.
It brought them luck (Keith Houchens header, is still my favourite cup final goal, excluding Everton) and they gate crashed the wedding reception later in the night, which must have been a joyous occasion.
I remember robbing the replica FA Cup, the night before we beat Man Utd, when Fulham who were skint, were having a fundraiser in our hotel. I sucked them in, asking them if I could just get a feel of the famous trophy, to give Everton a bit of luck tomorrow, and when they agreed telling me to be careful, I was already off into the other room, and another Evertonian, was already robbing the cup off me!
Great memories, which is what it's all about, especially when you win that famous trophy. 🤞

Rolf never did Its a knockout, he did do Two little boys though.
77 Posted 11/01/2021 at 22:10:35
A wonderful day out – unlike two years later against Albion.
Sheffield Wednesday again and they may be just as tough as Rotherham, being close to them in the relegation zone.
Having said that, we could have been in tough against Marine the way we have performed in some games this last 12 months.
78 Posted 11/01/2021 at 22:17:13
I was at the Milk Cup and FA Cup Finals in 84. Beating Watford and watching us lift a trophy for the first time in my lifetime was magical.
I did get concerned when I watched my father trying to scale the Wembley fence thinking that if he gets on the pitch, what happens to me (a then 12-year-old recovering from a broken leg and not long out of plaster)!
Whenever I watch the footage, I can still see and point him out to my son!!
79 Posted 11/01/2021 at 22:17:59
Peter Mills denied a dream fifth round tie.
Could have been Everton v Marine!
80 Posted 12/01/2021 at 09:37:29
For me - like many blues - the best ‘cup experience ever was the 85 semi vs Bayern followed by the trip to Rotterdam for the Cup winners cup final.
The whole experience was fantastic and I think that was the start of my losing interest in the FA Cup. Away games at the likes of Shrewsbury and even the trip to Wembley seemed pretty tame in comparison to the European experience.
I wonder if the TV companies could help by making it more of an experience as it was in the 70s & 80s - rather than just showing the game.

Honest, Thomas, I became a blue when we were two down!! Actually my dad was a Sheff Wed supporter so it was an eight year olds minor act of rebellion. Funny how times change; I could never pick a red as my favourite player but my dad thought Tony Currie was one of the best players he had ever seen.
83 Posted 12/01/2021 at 18:39:14
If any glory hunter chose Everton they would be sorely disappointed.
84 Posted 12/01/2021 at 19:03:32
Sligo are a great club. My brother in law and late father travelled to see Crusaders play at Sligo. They were treated like kings.
