    Might as well reuse this one. Special video from Wolves. This is what it meant to their fans yesterday. Absolutely magnificent!

    Gotta love the cup

    Huge results for Sutton United, Millwall and Wolves, while Wycombe gave the Spuds a hell of a scare

    Great stuff

    It's a real shot in the arm for the smaller teams to be playing the big clubs

    I'd be very happy with Lincoln, Sutton, Oxford or Millwall

    ^^God help us all...

    Was a fantastic day out. Wembley is a fantastic ground I'm not sure I'd enjoy playing there every week though.

    Arsenal fans want progress, not trophies that won't get them anywhere.

    Top 3 + FA Cup winner should be given automatic CL Qualification.

    That might force teams to attempt to win it every year.

    Not a bad idea at all. Let the FA cup winner go into the qualifiers like 4th place does. If one of the top 3 wins the FA cup then let 4th have the place.

    I like that idea

    And if one of the top 3 win it then 4th will qualify

    Disagree

    The UEFA Cup/EL has traditionally been a cup winner's comp, and should continue that way

    Unless you use league cups from Spain, Germany and England and Association cups from everywhere else?
