    Yeah the club can hardly say as you've been to one league game this season you are ineligible for the FA Cup Final. We don't get to the final very often so it has to be done via a ballot.

    In fact I think those who have been to a game should get priority as they are more loyal supporters and not plastics :)

    Leicester v Southampton is the semi-final chosen to have 4,000 spectators. They will only be local residents from the Brent area and health service workers.

    I'm not surprised they've chosen the semi-final that doesn't feature a London team either.

    And we will build you a statue and forever have a thread called, “ The MorgansbitOnTheScneid FA Cup Thread” for all future FA Cup talk.

    And Brexiteers realising its associations with a Frenchman will deface it and tear it down.

    One of my oldest mates lives on Empire Way, a stones throw from Wembley. And his Mrs is a Home Help. It’s all falling into place...


    I don’t look anything like him though (wrong colour), so photo ID would **** that right up.

    What will be learned from having four thousand in a huge empty Wembley?

    Cant see how they can have spectators at a semi Final which doesn't include Just both sets of Fans. That to this old one does not make any sense. These special events are just the thing for the fans its what they spend their fees for as fans. Sorry if this had been said before..........
