I unfortunately have to work the night before the cup-tie, so I will
not be able to queue up for a ticket. If anyone on here will do the
queuing for me, there will be a nice drink in it for them.
I will of course lend them my camping equipment and leave them
some money so that they can ring up Just Eat and order some grub in.
Hopefully it won't be a cold night.

Tottenham away at Wembley in the fifth, this time 'wall wins.

Millwall singing "5-0 and you've got no home"

and "My garden shed is bigger than this"

and "we might as well stay here"

It is the tie of the round. Sky, BBC and BT sport are fighting for the rights to show this one.
Tickets will be at a premium.

It shows you how far the FA Cup has fallen...

In 1956 Millwall played non-league Margate & 15,892 showed up for this 2nd Round match. 5,000 more than for our Division Three (South) match with Northampton Town the Saturday before. The 1st Round had seen us dispatch divisional rivals Brighton in front of 9,149 on a cold November night (we had already played them at home in league, in front of a Saturday crowd of 15,577). We then faced Crystal Palace, also mired in Div III (South), at The Den, 26,790 turned up to witness the 2-0 win. That was 10,000 more than for the league match. Newcastle United then came down to The Den in the 4th Round, they were THE cup side of the 1950s, and it inspired 45,646 to roar the Lions on to a 2-1 win (one of the Cup's great upsets). Sadly Birmingham City ended our cup run in front of a restricted crowd of 42,000 at The Den.

In 1962 we faced Margate again, this time in the 1st Round. Millwall fans weren't put off by facing the same lowly opposition as a few years previously, 14,549 turned up. An increase of 1,400 on the previous Saturday's Division Three home match with Brighton & Hove Albion.

I'd like to see us play in an alternative reality. One where Fred is considered the new Cruyff - because of his amazing football brain; & Craig rolls back the years with a Beckenbauer esq performance, as Millwall rip Rochdale apart in front of 20,000.

Moody, is it the fact the FA Cup has fallen? I agree partially. But cost of football etc and living has to come into it.

For me the FA cup will always be the greatest competition ever. Being able to participate in it personally, at some level is the stuff of dreams. My boys to have been brought up to appreciate the fine old competition. But no doubt, the premiership and the Champs league has made played a part!

I do think cost of football, other leisure time opportunities have had an effect - yes.

However, this reason I highlighted those particular FA Cup ties, is they show that in the past the FA Cup had a massive draw. 10,000 more fans went to the Palace cup match than the league fixture. Can you imagine that now? 5,000 more went to watch us play a non-league side in the 2nd Round compared to the previous Saturday's league fixture.

So, the equivalent in the modern era would be; we are currently averaging just under 13,000 a game in the league - if the FA Cup still held the same pull as it did, then we can expect a crowd over 13,000 for the visit of Rochdale in the 4th Round of the FA Cup.

Will that happen? Of course not. More like half the average league crowd will turn up.

This is definitely something that has happened in the Premier League era. In 1991 we played Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup 4th Round. We were both in the same division and both going for promotion to the top flight. However, the FA Cup game attracted a (slightly) bigger crowd than the league fixture, even though that game was 5th v 2nd.
