I have nothing against Man Utd but surly with them making 10 changes and them not picking there strongest team to face Crawley they should be fined? The FA rule says nothing about if you field a weakened team and win its okay they just say you must field there strongest side so surly a case for a fine. But we all know it wont happen!!

When they take the side they're playing into account, they won't fine them

First of all, The Premier league( i think) fined Blackpool not th Football Assocation, they definitely broke a Premier league rule. The FA cup is nowt to do with the Premier league.

2nd the rule is ****...

The rule is for the Premier League, designed to protect the integrity of the competition, as a weakened team losing can affect numerous other teams. There isn't a rule for the FA Cup, its at the managers' discretion to pick the team he wants.

Blackpool were not fined for making changes against Southampton, they were fined for the changes they made against Aston Villa. Also it's the FA cup so that rule does not apply.

I know the rule is **** but it should be a fair system and Blackpool were fined for the Villa game and the Southampton game which was in the cup

That case then, if it was premier league rules, then thats it. No fine for today. And like Scott said, the rule is pretty much a pile of ****
