10 Leave a comment on verse 10 0 The mighty F.A.Cup
is it losing it’s appeal ?
no say Rochdale fans !

With crowds down and some managers not showing much interest in it is the Cup on it’s way out ? Years ago grounds were packed when Cup matches were on they got fans excited but now it seems to be a hindrance.
But I’d get rid of the League Cup and have just the F.A.Cup as the major trophy as it’s so steeped in history.
