Pompey, Forest and Leeds the biggest ones that immediately jump out. Pretty sure Cardiff and Bury have won the cup too, Bury always seems odd given how few fans they have.

Bury famously won 6-0 and 4-0 in two successive finals.

Wasn't that just after the era when teams like Old Etonians and Royal Engineers were winning the Cup though?

Bury won it in 1900 and 1903 - so after the times of Old Etonians and Royal Engineers, but only 12 and 15 years after the Football League was formed.

Notts County won it in 1894, Barnsley in 1912 and Bradford in 1911, the same year the cup was made in Bradford for the first time.

Cardiff won it in 1927 and are the only team to take the FA Cup out of England. Forest won it in 1898 and 1959. Leeds have only won it once in 1972, as have Wigan in 2013.

Portsmouth have held the FA Cup for the longest time as they won it in 1939 and then didn't defend it until the 45/46 season, they are also the most recent winners that we have played after their win in 2008 (we last played Wigan 10 years before they won it).

Blackpool famously won the cup in 1953 in the "Matthews Final" although arguably it should have been called the Mortensen Final, Stan Mortensen scoring a hat-trick in the game.

Coventry won it in 1987 and Wimbledon famously won it in 1988.

I was wrong about Luton, they only made the cup final in 1958.

Milton Keynes handed over the "right" to the honours of Wimbledon FC to AFC Wimbledon about 10 years ago. The FA formally recognise that meaning AFC Wimbledon are previous FA Cup winners.
