I also don't think even when we were winning the competition regularly we really made much less in the way of changes in early rounds of the competition...

2001 - we beat Kingsbury 5-0. 5 changes from the previous Saturday against Sutton.
2002 - we beat Hillingdon Borough 5-1. 4 changes from an FA Trophy game against Bognor.
2003 - we limped past Potters Bar Town 3-2. Only two changes from our FA Cup game against St. Albans, but that was 10 days earlier.

Likewise, in 2007 when we finished as runners up we made 4 changes after a draw with Bognor.

The only real difference is arguably the quality of opposition - although struggling, they were from the division above rather than one or two below, and although I can't find their teamsheet for their last game against Ebsfleet on a quick search, with a 10 day break, 7 games without a win and looking at what they put out yesterday I can't imagine they went for anything other than a strong team with the intention of getting any win on the board.

I can understand frustration at paying full price and seeing that changes have been made, but I don't see it's much different to the way we've treated the cup in the past.
