    Comparing ourselves to a mid-table side – how low have we become 😉

    We’re only as good as our next game – bring it on

      A mid table side? Nowhere in the entire pist does it mention the league, it’s all about the FA Cup. Therefore, if we compare ourselves our the team which indisputably the best performer in history in the FA Cup, it makes no difference whether they are Premier league champions (which they were up until last week!) or league 1 champions!

      We compare ourselves against the best because that’s what we desire to be!
