    Default FA Cup semi finals being played @ Wembley

    Are you in favour or not in favour of FA Cup semi-finals being held at Wembley Stadium?

    I am in favour as where else can you host them?

    Where would you host Liverpool v Everton or Spurs v Chelski that is a neutral venue? Tranmere, Arsenal, Manchester? Of course not. It has to be Wembley IMO.

    Well they used to have them at neutral grounds so it's not impossible. For example Liverpool v Everton would be at Old Trafford. Plus, playing at Wembley makes it difficult for people in the north getting to the games, but it seems to work OK.

    Blimey Timey, a semi-final cup game between Liverpool and Everton @ Old Trafford?

    I bet the Manchester Police would love that.

    Used to happen regularly before about 20 years ago. A lot of semis were played at Villa Park due to its central location.

    I'm well aware of that, I'm just pointing out it hasn't always been that way. Being 2012 has nothing to do with it. And Villa Park is a pretty good ground, as are many others so there are plenty of decent neutral grounds that they could use if they wanted to.
