A no brainer, stay up means our best players stay with us and 38 big matches next season.

Would be nice to have our name on a piece of historic silverware.
No one will remember we avoided relegation in 20/21 in 20 years time and there won’t be any official recognition of such.
Glass half full, we reach Cup final and stay up.....beating Spurs in the final !!

FA Cup but only if we could attend.This may happen yet.

This. To see our club win an FA Cup final at Wembley would be a once in a lifetime experience. As important as Premier League survival is, ultimately promotions and demotions come and go. Plus there were plenty on this board who argued that they actually preferred life in the Championship (I’m not one of them but I get it).

We can do both if we get a good striker in.

always stay up is the priority if only one is on offer BUT I agree why not both. Success usually begats success.

Why opt for one or the other when it is still possible to have both?

We've kept the spine of the team that got us promoted. I guess as insurance against relegation. So why not.

Stay up.

Relegation  can have  devastating short and long term effects on the club.

It would obviously be great to win something  for the first time in our history, but if we  went down the same season it wouldn't be as sweet, and might leave a bit of a bitter taste, because you'd always be thinking  'maybe we'd have stayed up without the Cup run.'

Wigan being a case in point.

Stay Up - we had a good cup run in '75.  Lets just get a top flight side together and maintain out presence there, medals and cups can come later, don't want to do a Pompey!

I honestly don't understand the question. I mean how would any of us feel if we won an FA Cup and within the same time frame of a few weeks we were relegated? We would all feel so empty and lost. Idk, for me the goal is simple: win games. Just win the next game and don't worry about silly hypothetical questions.
