Spirited display, nothing to be ashamed of with that. Thought some of our boys had huge games, good stuff.

Hull a bit unlucky, we score off both our first attacks in either half. Didnt think we played well(heavily rotated team not gelling) but good games to watch. Gilmore needs a loan as hes ready for senior football.

Gilmore was very impressive when he came on.

Lopes for us didn't look out of place against your boys. Will end up at a PL club sooner rather than later.

Cardiff won 4-3. :(
We played well and were more than competitive in both games, but cost ourselves with lapses around the half time break. We conceded two goals straight after halftime in the first game we drew 2-2 and we conceded in the 45th and 48th minutes today.
One of their goals in the first game was so blatantly offside I was fuming. Saw the highlights as I was in Cumbria at the time. A win last night was welcome.

Spurs v Saints was entertaining. Extra time would have been good value.

I do love some of the United fans claiming this proves Ole is the right man... He's taken basically w full strength side against the 21st team in League One..

why are you so negative, it’s only the early rounds, the games will be better later in the competition
I followed the fa cup when managers used to rest players in the league match prior to it. If you knew it from back then you’d understand. It’s so devalued now

the league will always be the main priority of any manager though

Not always that way, before top four and all that. The biggest crowds were also at the cup games. A spurs/United cup game would always have a higher attendance than the league match unless it was a top of the table affair. Honestly mate the cup has lost its magic

When City can rotate almost an entire side and still be comfortable (and would have been even without the red card) against a team just one league lower.. it has lost its touch. The depth of the top teams is too great for the lower league sides to even match

That was painful to watch. Shrewsbury deserved to go through by the end of it. Can't think of a worse performance in years.
