Slav nails emotions to FA Cup mast

Slaven Bilic is remembered with huge good humour for hoisting an imaginary FA Cup above his head at a media press conference earlier this season.

He was being questioned on the relative importance of the Champions League or the FA Cup and made it clear he wanted that Wembley victory.

However, this week has seen much speculation that the tournament could become a midweek event with no replays involved.

That has raised much discussion among fans and Slav appears to have made his position extremely clear during the presser ahead of the Blackburn game declaring: “The FA Cup¬†should remain as the greatest cup competition, it is fantastic. We should do whatever necessary to keep it special.”

“”It’ll be a massive test for us, despite their position in the league we know their qualities and it’ll be very tough.

”¬†Rovers are a huge club. When I played, they were massive in England and that wasn’t so long ago.”

  1. What a travesty to even want to talk about the demise of the FA cup. It wasn’t long ago that the whole day was geared on TV from leaving on the coach with cameras on board until the
    Arrival at Wembley , catching the full atmosphere of the day . Money has clearly demoralised the great game and destroyed traditions that only few remember today . I class the FA in the same class as bankers or politicians and their lapdogs . Fuelled by greed and show no respect to peoples values. Disgrace full is an understatement .
