  • Nothing to worry about here, as long as they take it seriously. FA cup run or a chance at the play offs. You choose!

  • Richard, if I believed our current team could be in the top 6 at the end of the season I would agree, unfortunately I cannot see it so the cup is important for the gate money. However at the risk of being a bore the situation would change with just a couple of signings.

  • No brainer Rufus - making the play offs has to be our priority. Sadly the FA Cup is a sideshow for us and one way or another I suspect that we won't make Round 5.
