Liverpool legend Carragher insists FA Cup still has magic

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher feels the FA Cup still has some magic.

The Third Round kicks off today.

Carra wrote in the Daily Mail: "The Barclays Premier League has become the be-all and end-all; such is the intensity of the competition and the excitement generated, every Saturday feels like third-round weekend once did.

"That competition dominates to such an extent that if you ask fans now which they would prefer - to win the FA Cup or finish in the top four - the vast majority would pick the latter.

"I understand the finances involved, but isn't football all about savouring the magical days when you get to celebrate a piece of silverware?

"As a fan, I'd rather be in Wigan's situation of last season. Those supporters will have memories to take to the grave. Nobody remembers mid-table mediocrity."
