So, it's Monday morning and yes the weekend's football didn't go exactly to plan but let's not panic just too much.
Now you may expect the same old 'It's only the cup' and 'We can focus on the league' response to come out of my mouth...and you'd be exactly right.
Don't get me wrong, I love the FA Cup, I love a cup run and I particularly love clubs from outside the Premiership doing well in the cup. Unfortunately it wasn't to be for us but let's take an objective look at what we've missed out on.
A trip to Reading - It's not exactly Stamford Bridge is it? We've already got one of those to squeeze into a random midweek the last thing we need is to have to do it twice.
Money - There'll be plenty more if we get promotion back to the top flight.
The 'Magic of the Cup' - Let's see how 'magic' WBA think it is when they have to squeeze three fixtures into a week whilst their promotion rivals can have a nice long rest in between league games.
Yes the cup is a nice distraction when you're having a run but let's pull all the cliches out of the bag and focus on getting promotion.
A three point lead with a game-in-hand? Let's make the most of it.
