FA Cup and replays can be a financial windfall for the smaller non-EPL teams and can fund them for a long time. This replay would be fantastic for Shrewsbury's finances so good on them.

The big boys happily play in an expanded Champions League and take the $, but there is much more to football other than at the top of the pack.

Keep the replays for rounds 1-5.

The magic of the cup. The Unbearable kids are through to the next round.
Not really the magic of the cup. Many of the players in the Shrewsbury team came from similar academies so they are really of equal talent, just not experience.

Game is currently scheduled for the 6/3. Liverpool have a prem game on the 7/3.

The scheduling is ridiculous
Those games are always scheduled prior to FA Cup fixtures.. it isn't a Liverpool thing. Using VAR is.

Btw, U23 teams regularly play L1/2 teams and win in the EFL trophy... so it shouldn't be a huge surprise.

Imagine conceding shots and possession to a League One side... with a full strength team.

I think Newcastle 2019/20 will probably go down as the luckiest PL team in history. They have had I reckon about 5 home wins where they have been smashed, teams are regularly wasteful against them and they’re just defensive and shit.
