“What do you want me to say about this?” That is ESPN FC’s Craig Burley’s reaction to Manchester United’s 1-0 victory over Watford in the third round of the FA Cup behind closed doors at Old Trafford. Rather than reflecting on the match and its lone goal from Scott McTominay, Burley, Shaka Hislop and Dan Thomas discuss the state of the FA Cup in a world still battling the COVID-19 pandemic. Should big Premier League clubs like Man United have been able to enter the competition later on? Burley goes a step further, suggesting domestic cup competitions should have been scrapped just for the 2020-21 season.
Manchester United advance in FA Cup, but should the competition even be happening at all?
