I’m just wondering what most on here would have been saying if Argyle had got a home draw against a side from two leagues below instead. I’m sure there’d have been some so-called Janner arrogance then, if it had been say Torquay or Yeovil.
It is however a shame that the Green Army can’t travel because that would have been a good day out, with plenty of songs about the Blunts perilous position in the PL.

Survival in the Prem is worth an order of magnitude more than FA cup success. That's why we see so many premier League teams taking the p155 with their FA cup team selection. The FA cup is a footnote to those teams. Winning it didn't do Pompey or Wigan much good. Money talks.
So the next question is, what are their reserves like? You'd think it's mainly whatever they had from last season, so theoretically same standard as Huddersfield?
We can win this IF we work on set pieces and study their weaknesses and exploit.
So why didn’t he field a 2nd string side at Rovers Slings? Have you seen their next 7 PL fixtures? They haven’t got a hope in hell If by some miracle they beat Newcastle and Spurs they might rest their players for Argyle, but if they get any less than 3 points they’ve nothing to lose by playing a strong side against Argyle. They’re a PL football club, of course their fringe players are better than Huddersfield’s.
So you wouldn’t take a spell in the prem and a FA cup win then?

Yeah, most Yorkshire people only know Devon as a county they drive through on their way to Cornwall on holiday
I have always looked at Yorkshire men as wannabe Jocks.
