    Bobby Gurney would just play for Sunderland regardless. What is your problem?

    Any tournament we enter wether it be tin pot or a stain on our history that we are even in it as one poster declared we would be stupid not to go all out for and I'm sure as hell I'd be at Wembley cheering the lads on till I'm hoarse. In the words of Charlie Methven we need to accept we are a league one team so why would we not be proud of watching the lads lift a trophy?

    :lol: It’s not embarrassing for a L1 club to take part at all.

  8. I think it was Methven who said that we cant act the billy big bollocks and need to accept where we are, respect our opponents and earn our way out of it. Being in this competition is very much part of where we are and if you find it 'cringey' then you clearly have not accepted where we are.

    Don't be so bloody precious man. We are favourites for this and if we treat it properly could go a long way. Its an opportunity to be grasped. If you can't afford a Michelin star restaurant or even some decent pub grub, then you might just have to accept the odd McDonalds happy meal.....

    You taking your wallet to the other side? I don't think they accept Sterling where your'e going.

    People are saying it's a tinpot trophy etc. but I bet you every penny I have that IF we got to the final they'd be just as excited as everyone else. To say you wouldn't is just being a dick for being a dick's sake.

    It's an absolute embarrassment to be involved in this cup and no I most certainly would not waste my money.

    Incorrect. It's a joke of a cup.

  12. It'd be a great cherry on the cake if we win it along with promotion. However failing to win promotion but winning this would be hugely awkward

    For me the competition became cringeworthy when the FA allowed teams from the top 2 divisions to field their reserve teams in it.

    Just suppose we got to the final and for example played Chelsea U21?

    Humiliating if we lose and under valued if we win.Monstrosity of a competition.

    We should hang our heads in embarassment that we are in the competition. I couldn't give a shite how we do in it, and should use it only as a series of useful fixtures to give injured/fringe players a run out. I will not be going to the final, all giddy to watch a Sunderland fringe team take on Bristol City U23s for the prize of 2 points to the winner.

    I know we are in League 1, but we'll end up fucking staying there if we, as some desire, fielding full strength teams and take niggles and fatigue into the league games, all because we wanted to win some rinky dink pub trophy? Would you take finishing 3rd in the league rather than top 2, but got you got your day out in London? I'd rather we rotated so that our best players were available for as many league games as possible.
