Thats just the thing though, it was a tinpot cup before the addition of "B/Reserve/Youth" teams. Like the league cup, something you don't take seriously until you reach at least the quarter/semi-finals. We, like others, made loads of changes to our team in previous rounds but we now find ourselves with a day out at Wembley. 40k Pompey and Sunderland fans don't care who we beat to get there, we're just happy for the day out. Both teams have suffered a big downturn in fortunes over recent years, so we'll enjoy it no matter what competition it is. I doubt either team will be distraught if they don't lift that cup at 4.30 on March 31st.
