Is The FA Cup Under Threat?

Hugh Woozencroft is joined by Gregor Robertson, Tom Clarke and Jonathan Northcroft. Manchester United fall short at the semi-finals again, but what stopped them making the final this time? Manchester City are looking everything United wish they were at the back - are John Stones and Rúben Dias the best centre back pairing in the Premier League? Now the teams are decided, how will Guardiola vs Mourinho go down in the Carabao Cup final? The PFA have announced they’ll start testing EFL clubs twice a week from Monday - but why only now? Should the criteria for postponing games remain the same and is there a real risk the FA Cup could be cancelled completely? As John Stones is back in form and starting for Manchester City, the team end this episode by picking their favourite footballing comebacks.
