    FA Cup could move to midweek to accommodate Premier League but replays unlikely to be scrapped soon - The Independent

    Now, the Premier League is the most important competition. However the only better games in football is the FA Cup final itself than when we take a travelling army to somewhere in January on a Saturday afternoon.

    I love those games. I'd hate for them to be moved to midweek.

    And replays are a chance for struggling lower league clubs to get a replay and a payday out of a trip to a big ground.

    Modern football is rubbish!

    Midweek fixtures = the final nail in the coffin. RIP F.A. Cup if this happens.

    It's part and parcel of the total and complete lack of vision by anyone charged with looking after the interests of the game - pick any from FICKFUFA, UEFA, and our own dear and glorious FArce and, between them, they will kill the game for more folk than perished in the two wars.

    But it's a chance for Andorra and Litchenstein to play a big country and their citizens to watch the big stars!
