Football English Blog: Are cup competitions important?

Welcome to Lesson 3 in Activity Week - Dilemmas.

In all of our Football English blogs, we look at a topical item of football news and ask you to do three things: 

  1. Read the article and look at the words in red. Think about what these words mean.
  2. Do the quiz at the end of the article. This quiz checks your understanding of the football English in the article.
  3. Answer the questions and give your opinion in the comments section.

This is our latest Football English Blog and this week we're talking about whether cup competitions are important for Premier League clubs.

Are Premier League teams up for the cup?

This week sees Premier League teams in action in the FA Cup and European competition. For the first time, five Premier League clubs have made it to the knockout stages of the Champions League and Arsenal have advanced to the final 32 of the Europa League. This weekend sees the fifth round of the FA Cup and ten Premier League clubs are still in contention to win the oldest football competition in the world. But, how interested are Premier League clubs in these competitions? In the previous two rounds of the FA Cup, Premier League teams have often selected weakened teams and this has resulted in ten Premier League teams being knocked out of the competition; often by underdogs from the second, third or even fourth tier of English football. Why is this happening?

Chelsea avoided an FA Cup shock when they beat Norwich in a replay after a penalty shootout.

Are Premier League teams playing too many games? 

One argument that is often given for teams playing reserve players in cup competitions is fixture congestion. For example, Chelsea had to play nine matches in January while teams that had been knocked out in earlier rounds of cup competitions only had to play five or six. In the FA Cup, against Norwich City, Chelsea made nine changes to their starting line-up from the previous match. This resulted in a replay and an additional match to Chelsea's already busy schedule. In the two-legged League Cup semi-final, which Chelsea played against Arsenal before and after the Norwich match, they fielded a full-strength line-up. It seems that Premier League teams will run the risk of getting knocked out by underdogs in the early rounds of competitions but if they have a chance of winning the competition they will play their full-strength Premier League team. 

Wigan won the FA Cup in 2013 but were relegated from the Premier League just three days later.

Is Premier League survival more important than winning a trophy?

This is an argument that is often given for Premier League teams not taking the FA Cup seriously but the reality is that only four teams (Stoke City, West Ham, Bournemouth and Arsenal) have been knocked out by a team from a lower division in this season's competition. It is true that Premier League survival has become more important over the years, but, in recent years, teams that have reached the FA Cup Final have included: Crystal Palace, Hull City, Stoke City, Aston Villa and Portsmouth. All of these teams were in the bottom half of the Premier League and none of them were relegated. However, all Premier League teams want to avoid what happened to Wigan Atheltic in the 2012/13 season. Wigan famously beat Manchester City to win the FA Cup but they were relegated just three days later and are currently playing in the third tier of English football. On a happier note, Wigan have been this season's giant killers beating Bournemouth in the third round and West Ham in the fourth round of this season's FA Cup. They have a chance to re-create their shock FA Cup win when they play Manchester City in the fifth round later this week.

As I know a team which wins cup get right to attend Europe League. So it's important for the teams that have no chance to promote to the top of the premier league.
Premier league teams play much more matches. In my opinion the solution of the fixture congestion is to extend finishing time of premier league as it as possible. On the other hand to increase number of reserves players and give them chance to play at the cup matches.
Watching cup matches can be fun because of to know reserve players and to see top quality teams which is "biten" by the giant-killer underdog sub-division teams.

No doubt the Premier League is more important than cup competitions because of the prize money,its status and its a getaway to other European competitions like UEFA's champions league.

Not Premier League clubs have fixture congestion.Only those teams playing in the Champions and Europa League and other domestic cups find themselves with a busy fixture.Normally teams in the bottom half of the league table play only league fixtures.

I liked cup games because they give lower division teams a chance to play with top flight teams.

1. It is not more important than the cup since the world cup is more important than any other game.
2. What can be done is to carry out the matches and try to take control in front of the apparatus.
3. What I like is the passion that takes place in the game the understanding and the coordination of the plays.

2. Yeah, like most people are saying, switching and using reserve players.
3. I like the tension and excitement it generates!

1. There are multiple factors for this to be the case: tradition, the level of the players, competitiveness and different styles of play contribute to the Premier League being the most attractive league in the world.
2. If it is congested, it is not possible for a team to play 9 games in a single month.
3. The cups and trophies indicate a win, I think all the players are determined to win the cup matches and this is interesting.

- Actually I do not have much knowledge about football, I could say that it is one of the main leagues and it is very important in football.
- Choose a good date for matches
- The emotion and the adrelalina that one feels when seeing them

Yes, they play many games and I think they should select more time and thus facilitate everything

- I do not have much knowledge but I think I do not consider it to be more important than the cups of the world.
- I do not know or I can not think of a possible solution.
- When they reach a point of tension that leave the followers of their teams with fear of losing the game.

1. For me, the Premier league is more important than cup competitions because in the Premier League there are elite teams in England.
2. What can be done is to have a rotation of the whole team so that everyone has minutes and can rest.
3. What I like about cup matches is that you do not know who will win, you can never assure a result and it is unpredictable.

- Yes, because the Premier League it is the highest category in the league of football clubs in England. And apart from having quality equipment, it has those that are considered the best players.
- Because being such a big and important competition has many teams and that is why I suppose that the number of matches increases. I don't know what can be done to ease fixture congestion.
- I don't see many games either, but I think that what people like most like, is the emotion caused by the intrigue of knowing the result.

_The truth I do not know much about Football, I do not know.
_I suppose that the dates of the matches must be precise and thought for this congestion.
_I'm not a super Football fan, but I love that everything depends on each team, the adrenaline you feel when you know that anything could happen.

- I think that if it is more important, then it demands a higher level because all the teams are of the highest category and it is a very long season, after all I would like any team in the Premier League, to win it.

- Yes, they play many games. Weekly Premier matches, Cup matches, and also, the teams that play the Champions League. The only solution to this is as they are already doing, playing with reserves to give rest to players who normally play the most demanding games. And that each club knows which is their priority in the season and knows how to handle each player's breaks well and the strategies for each match.

-What I like is that teams from different categories of English football face each other. Maybe some small team of surprise.

I do not think the Premier League is more important than other competitions, there are many cups that have more relevance than this one.

According to what I read, yes. Although I do not know much about football, I hear very little about their teams.

I do not really see many games, but I find it exciting to see a final when in the last minutes they score a goal or tie the game.

-Honestly, I have very little knowledge about this, but I do not have to be a very important event.
-I think they play according to their limits, so they must know when to rest.
-I'm not very attracted to this sport.

I am not very expert in this topic but what I have seen and heard the premier league is very important.
what can be done is to rotate the players so that the incumbent rests.
that many teams are seen
