Which one would you choose?

Post by clarethomer » Sat Jan 23, 2021 11:57 pm

So we are playing Wolves away on 24th April.......

Would you rather know you are playing in the final of the FA cup or

Know that you are above 38 points in the league...

For me it would be both..but not being greedy- it has to be the league.

It would be so Burnley to get to a cup final when fans can’t attend

Cup for me. Especially as we will still have 6 more league games to go.

League - I really want to see what Dyche can do with some decent investment and if we go down I doubt he will stay around

League. Would love Burnley to stay here sticking it up the self entitled “big 6” on a regular basis.

An FA Cup final appearance would be nice down the line, when all is well and we can travel.

My Rugby league team Salford got to Wembley last season for the first time in 60+ years and no one could go. It will probably be another lifetime before it happens again.

League safety every time. (But especially as we can't attend the cup final)

Cup

It's a while since we have won any big silverware.

European football to look forward to as well

Agreed, especially given the no fans rigmarole. I would like to see a touch of effort in the cup though.

Who we playing in the cup final?
City are the only ones we can't seem to beat, so if it's them I'd take the league, anyone else and it's the Cup final because trophies are trophies.

Gotta be cup final, it's nearly 60 years since we appeared in a major cup final, and it's about time that changed, and I'll be very surprised if we'll need anything like 38 points to ensure survival this season.

League

One day in the sun will soon fade when set against 46 days in the shadows.
No reason why we can't push to achieve both though.
