wouldn't it be better if all fa cup ties were decided on the day with extra time and penalties if needed , it would help most teams with a backlog of games and the ties would be more exciting and there would be more shock results.i think everybody would benifit why can't the fa see sense and change their dated methods the fans already cough up too much and replays are an added burden.

It makes sense from our point of view but in the earlier rounds, when non-league and lower division teams are involved, earning a money-spinning replay against one of the big boys is not only seen as a minor victory for that club but also a financial lifeline.

As for the date changes, thanks for letting us know marty. I'll have to book my place on the coach trip for those 2 games.

i can also see your point of view but i do believe more non league and lower league teams would progress a little further in straight knock out games , so more financial lifelines could be on offer to these teams.little teams only get one real chance of beating a big team so give them the extra 30 minutes and the lottery spot kicks :D
