Millwall looking like Holland :lol:

Not exactly total football though.

Millwall the biggest giant killers in FA Cup history, we'll equal with Southampton.

Also, the only non top flight club to make 11 Quarter Finals.

Biggest small club in the world.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

In fact, we're infamous for it. It's just now it's proved on the pitch as well.

One could argue that West Ham, Tottenham, etc are bigger. And how are you equal with Southampton?

You are being lik eth eothers, not rellay answering others.

Simple question, would you prefer to regularly beat a team(s) above your division every year and never win a trophy, or actually win a cup?

Now you have actually asked a question, I will answer it.

I would rather win the cup.

Pretty happy with it. Division above so always hard but at home and a local(ish) game. We have a good record at home in big games.

I predict Millwall to win and then be accused of homophobic chanting.

No coverage of FA Cup in Australia this season, although I believe SBS still has the Final.
