It’s a bit of a tricky one this isn’t it?
It’s not a big enough team or tie to draw the fans in, and it isn’t a ‘minnow’ that makes you confident that we can get through to the next round without much hassle. So Birmingham City have been drawn at home to Blackburn Rovers in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup.
Given how Pep Clotet treated the Carabao Cup tie against Portsmouth at the start of the season with a side that was the opposite of ‘full –strength’, it’s clear to see how he felt about that competition, will he do anything similar with the FA Cup? Or do you think that ‘the magic’ of the competition will be enough to make him change his mind this time around?
Well if he makes his decision based on the reaction of the fans, he’ll probably go down the former route as they didn’t exactly seem too enamoured with the draw when it was announced.
Don’t care, dead draw

Whats the fine for withdrawing? 🤔

Did we actual expect anything other than a boring draw

Can we flip a coin instead? Sure they’d be game as well

Will need some incentive to turn out for this one.

Should the Blues take the F.A Cup seriously?
But to be honest, can you really blame them?
