We can win it, but I think we'd need a 'friendly' draw until the Final. In a one-off game we are capable of beating anybody, as other teams have proved before.

Agreed lukemarson, progress very much depends on the luck of the draw. You also of course need a few breaks during the games, but that aside, we certainly possess enough talent in the ranks to have as much chance of lifting the trophy, as anyone else out there. Good luck to Martin and the lads. You can bet Randy would love a trip to our showpiece event too. He'd forget all about this Superbowl malarkey.

We could of course also do with a few all premiership ties in round five, similar to the Liverpool vs Everton and Manchester United vs Tottenham ties in round four. While the surviving premiership teams are out there going head to head, we will be hopefully be enjoying a home game against lower league opposition. Not too much to ask for is it?

Well, theoretically, and mathmatically, as we are 3rd in the league, whatever happens we should, as only 4 teams are in the semi finals, at least reach the semi-finals. Now that is theory, but in practice, I agree with Glensider, we need a little luck with the draw, and a few other PL teams to "bang their heads together" on the way to clear the way... and anthing is possible. In 2000 we got to the finals, and I think we all agree we have a much better side now!
