    Lmfao. The FA Cup is not a major trophy. It's just a domestic trophy you can win after beating just 6 teams.

    With that logic the CL is a slightly harder trophy since you only beat 6/7 teams too.

    the way I view it is, the FA cup is the domestic equivalent of champions league

    the league cup is the domestic europa league

    And when you get home draws the whole way through and then Wigan and Hull City in the semi and final it's hardly an achievement is it :rolleyes:
    Forgetting the fact that we beat an in form Liverpool, Everton (when they were decent), Spurs and the holders who knocked out City the match before. Tough games regardless if it home or away

    Liverpool you fluked, Spurs well just lol at them guys had Adebayor and Soldado as strike force, Everton win was good, so literally 1/6 games was a proper win.

    You play 13 matches in the Champions League against some of the best teams in the world. I think it's slightly different playing Brighton in the FA Cup.

    Well it's the luck of the draw. I don't have an issue with that.

    Except you play pretty much the same teams in the FA Cup and League Cup?

    There's various forms of knock-out competitions but you're not going through a grueling schedule and you're not facing the best opposition.

    I don't see how it's suddenly a major achievement? It's great to win a trophy and all but let's be honest they're both minor cups.

    You go through a huge qualification process just to make it to the main tournament which then has a lot of the best players in the world playing. If you can't see how that isn't different to playing in the FA Cup..

    I said heading for. They are 8 points from safety in 23rd.
    They were current holders who had just dumped out the eventual pl winners, you can make the stats say what you want they were playing well and play off contenders last year

    I saw it as a tainted trophy you won because Chelsea, City, United were all knocked out without you playing them and Hull ****ing City in the final which you then nearly messed up. Do you really expect anyone to classify it as a top win when Wigan Athletic and Hull City were your semi final and final matches?

    Ahhh, sorry I forgot, just because you beat the 2nd place 5th and 6th place team, and the holders, your trophy is "tainted" unless you beat the mighty 7th place team in the premier league #logic.

    Technically speaking you don't have to beat any team, get get through the groups by drawing all your games like happened in the Cup of Nations today, then go through on pens for hte rest of the tournament

    The voyeurism is real in this one, only cares about Arsenal, ironic much.

    You scared about Leicester this weekend? Potential 6 points taken off you by bottom in the league, but then again they're about 60 places above the mighty Cambridge so there's no real embarrassment if you do lose to them

    Moyes got the highest away record in the league last season though.
