    Lunchtime is apparently 3pm in the FA. How long do elevenses last there?

    Excellent piece, for which much thanks. The only trouble is that it will cut no ice with the FA because the FA is now so divorced from real football people. As one who attended City v Wigan in the 3rd Round in the early 70s, when the Latics were a Northern Premier League club led by Gordon Milne, I hope they do well on the big day and that those who travel down enjoy themselves – despite the FA.

    They should be glad they’re allowed to watch it at all!

    I’m sure it won’t be long before the lucrative Far East market will be able to outbid anyone else for such prestigious ties as Wigan v. Man City…
