Re: The F.A. Cup, and it's current importance.
It should still be important but too much interference has turned it into what it is now. The FA devalued it when they started playing semi finals at Wembley and there are now too many FIFA and UEFA competitions to cram into an already overloaded calendar. Biggest culprit though is the Premier League, if it wasn't awash with so much money teams would prioritize the Cup more. Unfortunately it is now more important to finish 17th or above.
