I Love the FA Cup

I love the thought of the David's taking on the Goliath's and the David's ripping those blonde locks out of Goliath's head.

When I was a kid I grew up loving FA Cup Final day, regardless of who was playing.

Me and my mates use to rotate our houses every year (for years) to gather round and watch the final.

There were some great finals, there were rubbish finals.

We use to have crisps, peanuts, sandwiches, hot-dogs, burgers and coke (before we were old enough to drink) and it used to be a 'real' football party.

Mates, football and FA CUP Final day.

The magic of the FA CUP has not left me since those times. I just love the FA Cup.

Year after year you are guaranteed shocks and surprises.

Take last year's competition for example - who would have thought that Havant & Waterlooville would go to mighty Liverpool and take the lead TWICE - 1-0 and 2-1?

Who would have thought Barnsley would go to Liverpool and win?

Who would have thought Barnsley would have beaten Chelsea and get to the semi-finals of the greatest Cup competition in the World?
