    That fact that's main pull of the EL just shows what a failure's competition it really is.

    Course it is.

    FA Cup Final is actually a World Cup Final, because it's a Cup Final that takes place on a world.

    The funniest part is that you treated it pretty seriously when you were in the competition, even making a thread after you were drawn against us. And then as soon as we dumped you out, you quickly changed the thread title and OP content lmfao.

    In fact it still says European cup in the title. You've had a mare here. Rat race must be tiring your brain out.

    That was part of my unique humour.  I'd have thought instantly switching from "Shit just got real" to "European Mickey Mouse Cup, very boring and pointless" as soon as we went out would have given away that I wasn't being entirely serious.  I was gutted we went out of it, I've said I think we should take it seriously even going back to 2011 when there was no CL spot and we first dropped into it. It appears I overestimated my audience's intelligence, for that I apologise.

    Despite that, there's only one trophy you can call "European Cup" without being a total knob, it's the one with the big handles.

    Fact is, it's a European Cup. Teams like United and Dortmund were in it and taking it seriously. Not to be sniffed at, tbh. I know I'd rather win that than the FA Cup Smile

    So would I, but it's still not the European Cup. That said I'd rather not win it at all than win it using a drugs cheat.

    Main pull of the FA Cup is that it's the eilte cup competition in England, encompassing the best clubs the country has to offer. Hell, it's universally acknowledged as the best domestic cup in the world. Unlike the EL which is full of either the champions from places like Moldova, midtable clubs or CL afterbirth.

    It was only a few months ago you were creaming for the scrub cup of England, the League Cup, so it's not really suprising that you're now doing the same over the EL. "Club expectations" I guess.

    Scrub cup final = City vs Liverpool

    FA Cup Final = United vs Palace

    Both competitions are virtually the same these days.

    Even last season's league cup final was a bigger game than all of them. Chelsea vs Spurs.

    You beat us with the help of Howard Webb. Aston Villa almost always had our number under Rodgers.

    Fact is both the League and FA Cups are tinpot nowadays. Hull and Aston Villa hahahaha.

    We've had to get through United (who seriously wanted to beat us more than anything) and Dortmund Loool. Much harder.

    The fact we even got to the semi final with Rodgers sums up the quality of that competition.

    Just look at the attention the English media is giving the Europa League compared to the FA Cup lmao

    "You beat us with the help of Howard Webb" says the guy who's club overcame their two hardest EL opponents with a drugs cheat.

    Hull and Aston Villa competed in a competition in which the best clubs in England participated and they managed to overcome them, and rightfully so as shown by how Villa dismantled you. In the EL you're competing against "the rest", they are in that competition in the 1st place by virtue of the fact they aren't good enough to face the best.

    EL is by definition a failures trophy, the FA Cup winners can make a case to be classed as the best team in England.

    So is the FA Cup, so is the cup I made out of clay when I was 6. In a football context European Cup refers to one trophy and one competition and it ain't the Europa League.

    When you even out how much superior we are to you with the fact you only narrowly managed to beat them with a player hopped up on PEDs then I'd say yes we are above them.

    Btw, even RR concedes he'd rather win the Europa Cup than the FA Cup  Laughing I reckon you should stop hyping up such a tinpot trophy now.

    Lmao. Sakho takes a fat burner and it becomes your go-to ammunition. Like it would have made any difference if he had taken it or not. We got through the Semi Finals without him Laughing
