Hodgsons post match comments on BBC suggest he had little intention to win the game knowing Man City would be next.

Why does it matter that you know your next opponents going into the game? If you are going to have run in the cups you are likely to have to beat a big team or 2 along the way. Hodgson has no interest in the cups. 6 wins and 7 defeats in cup competitions. That is skewed by 1 good FA cup run in 19. We should be better than 6 wins in 7 cup competitions especially given how few PL teams we have faced.

Because if it was an easier opponent, we could put out a second 11 again and it would be a useful run-out for them. Against Man City, you play a lesser team and they'll get embarrassingly ripped apart.

We don't want a cup run. Best possible result last night.

A makeshift 11 with a lot using it to get some fitness only.

I get the fact that this is a strange season but sooner or later, we must try to win the LC or FA cup as we will eventually go down. There has been a massive improvement in our team over 7 years but the general standard has gone up as well.
Last season's exit to Derby in the FA cup 3rd round was a bit painful to watch, with fringe players like Hennessey, Kelly, Riedewald, Meyer, Pierrick and Wickham in the starting line-up. I hope Palace go for the FA cup this season.

Third successive cup game against lower league opposition in which we have failed to score in ninety minutes. Never looked like scoring in any of the games

Illustrates how poor our squad players are

Oh yes and Hennessey is a total shite keeper he should of saved at least 3 of the penalties faced. He’s obviously got holes in his hands woeful.

Hilarious. We haven't had a decent cup run since we got to the final.

Well yes, but our intentions of progressing in this competition seems to lessen every season. It's as if it's an inconvenience to Roy and the team.

I didn’t watch Derby, fortunately. But it’d have be a special kind of dogshit to be worse than Colchester in the league cup was.

2019 1/4 final away at Watford. That run accounts for half our cup wins under Roy in 7 competitions. Last 3 we have gone out first opportunity to teams in leagues lower than us.

Didn't we get to the quarters a couple of seasons ago, losing to Watford? That was a very decent run when you consider the other cup results.

I would too. There is no trophy for ending up 17th every year(or 10th) and our trophy cabinet is an empty box!

Until we have a fit squad RH has no choice but to pick a second string team no way could he risk any Ward Dann Kouyate Zaha Mitchell there is no cover for them at the moment. The draw before the game ruined any chance of us going for it. We have to hope the f A cup comes at a time when we are in a good league position and injuries have cleared up. At least it gave players a training game to get match fit.

And let's hope nobody is stupid enough to conduct the fourth round draw before any of the third round matches have been played.

Yep, that was the pisspoor weekend when we found out Zaha had injured himself in training on the Friday. That was really not good enough at any level for a Premier club.
