The FA Cup is well underway for another season, as the extra-preliminary round unfolds. The BBC is littered with interesting tales and stories of mangers come chairman come groundsman come centre-fowards. All this is welcome coverage and shows the the FA cup is still a popular competition.
However, an idea my dad has often had is the scrap the qualifying rounds and simply throw all the sides in at round one. Just think of the fun as Manchester United roll up at FC Romania in late July. This would give the sides way down in steps 11 and 12 of the pyramid a chance of national radio and TV coverage, a full house, and the chance to take on the big boys as equals.
What do we all think?
