Mangala , Gundogan and at times Danilo were a fucking embarrassment tonight and another couple of howlers from Stones , we got away with it though just ! Credit to Bristol City for trying to play football , a lot of PL teams should be embarrassed with themselves after watching that and turning up just to park the bus damage limitation bullshit . Lastly how on earth do the FA expect ordinary fans to cope with FA cup tickets and League cup semi final tickets and travelling costs etc just days after each other just after huge expense with Christmas ??? yeah tickets were heavily discounted tonight but get fucking real the FA !!!
Anyways onwards and upwards huge weekend ahead CTID
The FA don't set ticket prices ....
I don't think he's talking about prices, more the closeness of the matches.
The problem is that they are all competing for business so none of them give a fuck about the other. It's a Raggy thing, they're the ones who started it.
Ta Beefy that's the point I was trying to make via quickly typing on mobile . Also its a bit of a weird cup comp this one , nobody really gets excited about it except the lower league teams but the excitement starts for the PL teams and fans when you get to Wembley .
I would say that it starts here in the semi's, especially when we think it's an easy draw.
We won 2-1 with a makeshift team against a club who'd got this far by beating PL clubs, including the 2nd best in the PL. With near 70% possession and more than 3 times shots on goal, twice as many on target, the team showed perfectly how you cannot just throw players together and expect them to be anywhere bear the first team.
We move on with another win and are actually better placed than many think. We all wanted the best team tonight because of our passion for Cup Finals when the best bet is further on down the line.
I'm more than happy with the result, who wouldn't be.
