Well, it's fair to say the FA Cup is alive and well!
Although not upsets today, I think we had enough of them on Saturday to ensure the magic of the cup lives on for another year! Unquestionably, one of the best competitions in the world of football.
Bradford winning is one thing, but beating a Chelsea side who are so dominant at home from 2-0 down is incredible. I was lucky enough to have Phil Parkinson (Bradford manager) at a young age with his time at Reading. A proper football man and above all else, an incredibly nice guy. Again, sorry for sounding like I am dropping another name, unashamedly I am, so just deal with it….!
Arsenal and Man United appear to be favourites now. With the inconsistent seasons they've had, for them to be favourites just shows how many big teams have gone out already. Although, I wouldn't put it past 'Big Sam' at West Ham to cause an upset. He has embedded a resialiance and relentlessness about the 'ions' play.
A cup that I have loved from a very young age. I am so pleased to see it alive and kicking.
