I don't see much love for the FA cup on here.
I could be wrong on that but personally I love it.
I like the way the games are all or nothing.
I see it as chance for some Glory, sure we have to stay up but the mid table thing can get a bit boring.
It looks like we have a reasonable chance in the cup this year.
Any thoughts?

We’re not a mid table team. We’re a relegation battler that then goes into top 4 form in the last month when our opponents have their flip flops on and we’re still professional, probably more than we were.

My love for the cup stretches way back.

As does mine - to January 1973 v Southampton at Selhurst. 2-0, after having beaten them 3-0 at Selhurst in Division 1 on Boxing Day. Palace were flying, with Don Rogers tearing defences to pieces. There was no way we would be relegated, we thought.....,

 


Palace since 19 August 1972. Palace 1 (Tony Taylor) Liverpool 1 (Emlyn Hughes)

I think slight nerves about the league remain. 3 points against West Ham, get past Doncaster, and I think we'll all be very excited for the cup.

Take a look at all the attendances of all the games!

Moan.U started it when they went on an American tour instead

I jumped out my chair when United got drawn with Chelsea and texted my dad "The cup is ours this year".

I am planning to buy 3 bottles of water at the next Palace game to tip me into the next bracket of ticket purchasing for the final.

Would love to see us win the cup before I shuffle off this mortal coil

Yes this is a fair comment, at least the relegation battle is more exciting than the true mid table teams.

Haha, you sound like my Dad. When we made the Playoff Final last he broke his boycott of going to football on the basis "It'd be good to go to Wembley before I die".

Anyway, 6 more loyalty points for me and I'm seeing Palace lift the FA Cup at long last. Simple.

It's become less important in the early rounds but cranks up from the quarters on.

Been to all three FA Cup finals, one draw and two losses. Would love to see us finally win one.

I found if funny that only 8000 West Brom fans turned up to see the replay against Brighton when tickets were only £10.

 


It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.

I just posted the ticket update. There's only 50 tickets left out of 3200 allocation. We're going by minibus from Ashford, Love the cup!

I'm not going to make excuses for them.
