Cup or league success?

Amidst the annual slating of the FA Cup following the 'big boys' fielding less than full-strength sides, I was musing over the prospect of whether I would prefer an FA Cup win or for us to maintain our league position and finish the season in 4th place - thus qualifying for the Champions League.

Unfortunately, I was unable to post up the past couple of days and the guys over at Vital Football beat me to it and ran a poll, which came out well in favour of a 4th placed finish.

Personally, it would have to be an FA Cup win but speaking to other Blues, views are definitely mixed on this and perhaps it is a sign of the times with the game in this country that the Premiership riches are outweighing anything else - even the possibility of hoisting a trophy.

Any thoughts?
