It's been nine years since United beat Arsenal in the final to lift the cup and Ferguson feels that it's about time United's name was back on the trophy.
But before Fergie can think about steering his side to Wembley, they must beat West Ham in tonight's replay after drawing 2-2 at Upton Park.
"We want to try and have a go at this FA Cup,'' Ferguson told MUTV. "We haven't had a run for a long time, two or three years, and we have had some bad draws.
"We're at home tonight and we have got to take advantage of that. If we get through, we have got another home tie so there's a big incentive for the club to make sure we get through."
