I think I get where the fans were coming from now.
Last week when the ball number was announced for the draw, fans didn’t seem all that bothered when it came to the FA Cup, and based on the reaction to who they got in the 3rd round of this year’s competition, it looks as if they may have had a point.
So QPR have been drawn at home to Swansea City in this year’s competition, an all Championship tie.
The two teams have met already this season, as the Welsh side ran out 3-1 winners in West London, so hopefully we won’t see a repeat of that same scoreline come early January. Or hopefully we will, depending on your view on how important the competition is.
There’s always next year🤷🏼♂️

The magic of the FA Cup.
Every year you get to play weird and wonderful clubs that you only get to play 2 other times that same season.

A team that’s in the same division, that’s also better than we are. Great 🙄

Need to keep our best players and sort out the defence in the new year or its bye bye facup for another year.

We’ll lose 2-0 and go on for days about how it’s only a cup game, we never go on cup runs and not important etc.

Good luck to Swansea in Round 4 👍

Should QPR not bother with the FA Cup?
Personally I think that so long as we’re not in ‘deep’ relegation danger, then we should take the cup seriously, but if things go south between now and then, probably best to play it safe and just ditch the whole thing.
And they say the FA Cup is ‘magic’, someone should try telling that to the fans above.
