Road to Wembley 2010/11 (Semi-Final)

WEMBLEY! WEMBLEY! WE’VE FINALLY REACHED WEMBLEY! Although as I’ve repeatedly moaned at before, not at the Final stage. This was the “bigger” Semi-Final. Citeh vs United. Blue vs Red. (Add other melodramatic face-offs if you wish) where the winner would have a crack at the FA Cup against either Bolton or Stoke.  

Manchester derby fizzles out, Chelsea extend gap(It’s all love love love)

Unlike in early rounds where only around 150 hardy souls would know (and care) about the result, considering this game was watched around the World by millions, it seems pointless for me to regurgitate any of the action. We all know City won 1-0. We all know Yaya Toure scored the only goal. We all know Paul “can’t tackle” Scholes was sent off for an awful challenge Pablo Zabaleta and we all know the World’s most expensive wind up merchant Mario Balotelli did his job and got Rio Ferdinand riled up like the hypocrite he is.

I managed to catch most of the game on shITV as I rushed back from Wellington and made a few observations. 1 – Paul Scholes needs to retire and retire now. He just looks off the pace and completely ineffective at this level. 2 – The FA Cup needed an “Original Top 4” free Final as I felt (especially with Chelsea and Man Utd) they want to win the bigger trophies like the League and CL so won’t be that fussed about missing out on the FA Cup this time. Andddd 3 – ITV is really shit. BBC please buy the rights to FA Cup games from them. I’m begging you. Good luck to Manchester City and Stoke City on May 14th.

Balotelli(I told you it was all love love love!)
