That'll teach the greedy FA for having the semis at Wembley and charging extortionate ticket prices, rather than using a nice neutral ground somewhere in-between the two teams that are involved and lowering the prices to get the crowds in.

Nah, Wigan just don't have 30,000 fans... but they're not in the semi-final because of the size of their support... :shrug:

Exactly RTT, i'm in a debate on twitter about this now but what people seem not to realise is for example when Blackpool made it to Wembley, a lot of those fans who went had never been to more than 3 games in their life. Wigan will now sell more of those tickets now people realise there is an easy trip to Wembley.

Most the clubs that make Wembley don't necessarily fill the stands with their own fans.

I think they should get rid of all the FA Cup rounds and just have the 4 best supported teams in England play the semis and Finals. I would love to watch Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal and Newcastle play each other every year and not let any other teams have a chance of winning it. I mean, it's boring watching a football match if it's not between 2 well supported clubs, right?

Added to which, seeing David Whelan lift the trophy was genuinely heart-warming.
