I have found out that EXPERIANCE counts for nearly everything in the FA cup not for big teams of corse (e.g - Man utd, Chelsea, Man City etc.) if you are a average team like (e.g - Everton, Birmingham, Middlesbrough etc.) it will do you good i have wiltord the old vetran striker whu used to play for arsenal and also franca i just played liverpool won 2 - 0 with middlesbrough.

Comments welcome!

So you're judging this based on one result?

As bad as it guess IMO :p

Also, although personally I think Boro can get better strikers than França and Wiltord, I agree that, for those teams out of the spotlight and running on a tight budget, you can't get to choose between many players in your first season. You can get some of the rising stars, as in youngsters eager for first team football, or fading stars, old players which will hopefully burn their last light at your club.

If you beat all those teams with Middlesbrough and experience, I applaud you. But did you really draw all those teams, I mean really? So 'really' that you'll need to provide a screenshot for my belief?

if you are a average team like (e.g - Everton, Birmingham, Middlesbrough etc.)
lol at this.

Im a middlesbrough fan myself. But if you say they are an average team, then birmingham and everton must be world beaters compared to them, Middlesbrough are 18th in the championship and do not even come close to comparing with them.

Little bit harsh on Everton and Birmingham there don't you think? XD

I'm sure that if you have a decent team, tactic and luck on your match engine, that you will be able to beat those teams if you make the right signings. Not just with 39-year-old Wiltord.
