    I'd just like one season up there for a laugh. Would happily bin off the millions you get for being there, as well as the parachute payments.

    To be fair, explaining Millwall to viewers from overseas would be hilarious. That'd be worth a watch every week.

    I mean, they do have a song that sort of nicely sums it up.

    Found out today that the 5th Round games are midweek. Happy we got City now.

    Yup and they include Thursday fixtures
    So we might have Tues-Sat-Thurs-Sun-Tues
    Not going to be ideal

    So apparently the "racist" chanting Reading reported our fans for were anti English songs (despite the fact that they were singing anti Welsh songs today), what a sad, pathetic club :joy:

    Wasn’t there @ryan217 , part timer me

    I knew in advance that Aluko would be starting which significantly reduced my motivation to go

    Are you, or are you not in fact unbeaten when Aluko's been in the team for you this season? Exactly. 7m well spent.

    I just don’t know if I can take it if he gets back into our champ squads, honestly getting rid of him, Bacuna and Ilori in one window made me so ecstatic

    I was about to say I'd have him back at the moment considering we ended up with Joe Bryan playing Right-Wing for the last 10-15 minutes against Charlton because we've got so many Forwards injured. But then I thought about it for a bit, and I probably wouldn't.

    Coming over here, taking our abuse.

    Think we’re playing Joe Bryan on the wing again looking at the team for today. Got 6 Defenders on the pitch, so it’s pretty clear what our priority is going to be.

    One side story is Mawson’s not been in the squad for the Charlton game and today. Could be something to watch over the next week because we’re still getting linked with Centre-Backs even after we’ve signed Hector and Kongolo.

    They're bringing on Sterling. I mean, seriously?

    Actually reasonably content with that overall. Was expecting it to be 8 or 9 when Ream got sent off after 5 minutes. Bar the minute that Jesus scored twice I thought we defended quite well.

    Great weekend for Cup upsets. Only one that could even be considered one is West Brom, but even then West Ham are a shambles.

    Maybe all hope is not lost.

    Erm excuse me we smacked 4 past a team from the league above
    Although Barnsley are genuinely shambolic, the amount of times they gave us the ball within 30 yards of their goal was frightening
    It could/should have been 6/7
    Also here come the Shrews

    Go on Cumdog. Ridiculous that you can have VAR at some games and not all, robbed Shrewsbury of a penalty.

    First pen was outside the box to be fair. So in that sense you could say it's all the old fashioned "balances itself out" cliche.

    We’re taking the Magpies back to the KasStad mate

    They've started a Striker they spent 40m on who without exaggeration probably wouldn't even start for you.

    So lots of rumours we are after Sander Berge and he is interested in joining. Would be a decent signing that. Would easily break our record fee.

    So if we somehow beat City we would've had a midweek away to Sheffield Wednesday. Yep, definitely happy we don't have that one on the calendar.

    Potentially home to Arsenal in the next round
    Go on then
    Reckon we could beat them too, get Fratton rocking and play a bunch of big lads get right in their faces

    Who’s your best players on Fifa this year?

    IF Lautaro 153 games, 108 goals, 88 assists

    Insigne 43 games, 36 goals, 23 assists

    Muriel 92 games, 66 goals, 68 assists (that assist stat has blown my head off)

    Base Crespo 68 games, 52 goals, 31 assists

    Base Hagi 32 games, 26 goals, 11 assists


    Hagi genuinely feels like cheating when you use him.

    I've changed my team loads so I don't have any "amazing" stats on anyone at the moment seeing as I've only got one or two weeks with the majority of it. Was probably Neymar until I sold him a week ago to get Headliners Lewandowski to pair with my Battle Pass Perisic.

    Underrated card for me was using Base Vieri for 2 or 3 weeks. Think he was averaging 2 goals a game in Weekend League for me, but then I did Futmas Cavani to link Neymar.

    David Parkhouse Sheff utd to Stevenage on loan will be good to see how he does. Was good at Derry but I watched him for N.I u21 and wasn't impressed.

    Not sure what’s going on with him. Apparently wanted to leave and join Celtic so wasn’t signing new contract, but now he’s going out on loan so maybe he’s had a change of heart.

    We never have transfer drama but this Sander Berge one has been great. Linked heavily with him and play apparently wanting to join, suddenly he’s been ‘spotted’ at Man Utd training ground for a medical. Two mins later it’s not actually him but a 15 year old academy kid.

    Supposedly Florenzi's going to Valencia and his replacement is going to be... Cyrus Christie. Yep.
