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.

Were you happy with the FA Cup draw?





But to be honest, can you really blame them?

  • I personally would not under value the game because it is a competitive one which gives fringe players the chance to impress and possibly players coming back from injury so I would be inclined to put a descent team out and for heavens sake its the FA Cup!!! where as all the romance of the competition gone!!! sad
