Klopp is a big babbler when talking to the press but he knows his stuff and will always protect his players. Esp because so many young ones, even an 16y.o. deubtant involved. Klopp does not want it to hit their confidence.

It's a shame the cup has now become so second rate like the Carabao. It was once Englands most prestigious competition.

It's down to TV money and all the World wanting to watch English football. A club would get £3m for winning the FA Cup, but staying in the Premier League is worth £100m so you can understand relegation threatened clubs playing a weakened team. But Leicester should be ashamed for their fans though, not getting relegated, cups about the only thing left and yet -such a weakened team against Newport. They should inform the fans before they have to travel.

That's it! Doesn't help the final has so much gloss taken off it by semis at Wembley and then late kick off. Then have kick off for other ties usually teams at other ends of country at stupid times. 

But yeah definitely seen as less of a priority these days which is a shame as chance to win a trophy. Like you say fans have travelled all that way. It's nice for a upset but not when it's a weaker team 

Saying that some of the ties are meh. Teams who meet anyway.

It comes down to the World TV audience not interested in seeing the Newports, Accrington Stanleys. They just wanna see the Hazards, Agueros, If they were interested, the FA could charge the foreign TV companies the same as they charge them for the Premier League and the Cup prize money would be bigger. Then, and only then would the Premier League team managers take it seriously and field full strength teams.

We definitely got the rough deal.. Saying that.. We've had moments before against 'easier' sides and its gone a bit wrong.. Bradford.. Barnsley that time.. Brentford so who knows how this would've gone.

Saying that... Then again this is chelsea. Maybe going out to spurs might not be all bad. Duno if we'd beat City again. We somehow managed to score 2!then it went wrong after

Ermmm... Hard knowing there's another leg after
