Bilic will respect FA Cup with winning team

bilicsmilesWest Ham manager Slaven Bilic says he is fully aware of FA Cup upsets will not underestimate Wolves on Saturday in the third round of the FA Cup.

The manager was speaking at a pre-match press conference this morning and says he will be put out a winning team that will respect the FA Cup.

Slav said: “The FA Cup is a platform for upsets, you see it all the time so we will have to be aware. We are not underestimating the challenge.” 

“Wolves are in good form. Saturday is a big game, we have to show what we are capable of every week. The show goes on. We will very much play a team that we think is capable of winning. Every manager respects the FA Cup.”

David Sullivan previously told ClaretandHugh: “One of my first games at the club was Wolves at home and we were appalling. I’d like revenge for that. It was a Tuesday night, we were terrible.”

  1. It would be nice to take the FA CUP seriously and not treat it like we treated the Europa League ( that was terrible ) where we showed no respect to the competition , the club or the fan’s . The Fans are crying out for something this season , and a cup win would do very nicely .. Our League position could see us in Europe , but a FA cup win will nail it . The FA cup , at least for me , is still a massive pull on the emotions and pride .

    We can get a top 4 finish and we can rest players now,and still go on a cup run
