I wonder what sorts of odds you could have got for any of Cardiff, West Bromwich Albion, Barnsley or Portsmouth getting to the semi finals of the FA Cup, far less all of them. What a great competition. Barnsley last reached the semi finals ten days before the Titanic sank. My friend Daniel who grew up there reckons it is the most significant day in the history of the town. Who said that there was more to football than life and death?
Would you rather be a Chelsea player or an England Cricketer or Brendan Nelson today? Or just for James, how about an English Rugby Player? I am a bit surprised that he was surprised by Scottish reaction to that kind of win, ugly or not it was a win over the Auld Enemy. As always, very sweet.
