    Can't share the well wishes for Solihull unfortunately, I want Shitpool in the 3rd round, that'll test their 'not a penny more' resolve.

    As for the question, reached FA cup finals as second division sides?

    They're boycotting because of the owners, funny how it started when they were looking like getting to relegated to League One.

    Fine, the season before when they made the Championship play-offs.

    Wrexham's boss has been told to stay away by the club for tonight's FA Cup tie with Newport

    He had been heavily linked with a move to Shrewsbury for over a week now and it wouldn't go down well with the supporters if he was there and then f*cks off on Monday.

    Beaten FA cup finalists in 1931 and 1956

    League cup winners in 1963 and 2011

    League cup runners up 2001

    The 63 cup win was secured in the second leg away at filth park. A game I’d have loved to have been at.
