Romance of the Cup

Getting serious now and the draw has been kind to us in that we will avoid the Russians until the final. Poor old Martin O'Neill.

A repeat of the 1967 Cup Final is on the cards and the chance for Chelsea to make it third time lucky, following 1967 and 2008. Somehow I feel they might do it this time but I would like the gift of a goal in the first minute to put it up to them.

Visit to Wembley February 2008 below shows John Hollins signing autographs for the Chelski fans (and one Clancy imposter - no autograph requested) plus Woodgate's headed winner.

But lest we all get complacent, there is the simple matter of Fulham, Portsmouth and Villa before we have a day out in May.
