And then there were four. Since it kicked off last August, 732 teams have been knocked out of the FA Cup. Fakenham Town and Camberley Town were the first to exit, going out to Thetford Town and Ascot United, respectively, on the first night of extra preliminary round action. Most recently, Millwall went out in a manner that was so unbelievably gutting it achieved what many thought unthinkable by making them feel something approaching sympathy for Millwall. The lowliest team left in this year’s competition going into the quarter-finals, the Championship strugglers contrived to blow an apparently unblowable two-goal lead against Brighton with just two minutes of added time remaining before eventually going out on penalties.
