Jed is not right. Speaking for myself FA Cup means a hell of a lot, as a small boy growing up Cup Final Day was just that...a whole day dedicated to the two sides who'd made it to the final, the worst loss of all time was getting knocked out at the semi-final stage and missing the biggest day of the British football calendar. The most historic competition steeped in great tradition, it's not all about the Premiership you know and it's money with it's ridiculous Sky hype.
That was back in the day when the FA Cup actually meant something to the big clubs. Nowadays teams such as Liverpool and Spurs put out weakened teams even when they get to a FA Cup semi-final. I doubt Liverpool were devastated when Wolves knocked them out in the 4th round. Since Man U dumped it off for the Super Cup in 1999-2000 it has lost a considerable amount of its prestige.

Such a shame about Jose Antonio Reyes, he was a lovely player to watch, even after all the injuries it was nice to see his skill and touch getting him a decent living. A reminder to those who may need reminding of the greatest gift Arsenal Wenger gave our football culture - the ability first to appreciate - and now nurture - artistry.RIP. Always Invincible.
