This Sunday, Fulham travel to South Wales to take on Cardiff City in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.

The moving of the kick-off to 11:30, to allow BBC Wales to cover the game live, has angered the Fulham support.

But that anger has been somewhat appeased by the travel arrangements put in place by the club.

The travelling support will have high hopes that Fulham can beat Cardiff and make the 4th round draw, but has the FA Cup still got that same old magic feel about it?

Many would doubt it and some feel that steps should be taken to redress that fact.

The manager of the opposition this Sunday, the colourful Neil Warnock, has his own views on the situation, with Warnock remarking ahead of the FA Cup tie at the Cardiff City Stadium,

‘The Premier League has taken over everything really. The FA Cup should have an automatic place in the Champions League that would make it more appealing.

“It is really exciting at grass-roots level with teams trying to get to the proper rounds like Stourbridge. The whole town will be buzzing.

“It is not a priority for us. We have told the public we will play some fringe players. But that doesn`t mean it won`t be exciting, we will put a good fight up.”


Do you agree with the thoughts of Neil Warnock?

Your views would be greatly appreciated.
