This week has certainly seen some shock footie results.

Thrilled to bits to see Barnsley shove it up Chelski yesterday. Great game and a well deserved win for the harder working team.

Just seen that Cardiff have defeated Middlesboro, yet another Premier scalp for the lower league teams.

It's the stuff of dreams for the lower clubs to get to Wembley.

I have to say I don't agree with holding the semis at Wembley, seems to take the gloss off the final. I suppose it's the FA's way of squeezing more money out of the football supporter.

OK for the London clubs as there's not the travel expense incurred. Don't suppose it'll bother Chelsea now though! :D

I completely agree with it being wrong holding the semis at Wembley. Definitely takes away from the main occasion.

Also you forgot another result...Man U 0 - Portsmouth 1, the result wasn't as enjoyable as Fergusons reactions he needs to learn to take defeat on the chin and not blame everyone but himself and the team.

Sorry Eagle, but you've got no chance. Although I do hope you can shove my words down my throat next week.

Who'd have believed any of it. I was sad to see LFC go out, but it seems that all the big guns have crumbled under the quality of lesser clubs. Should have put some money on it!
I heard the MUFC game on five live.....cheered a great deal at the fateful moment....go pompey!

I remember going to watch the cup final when it was Man Utd against Millwall, I'm not a Millwall fan but a few of my buddies are so we had a fantastic day out.

The only downer was that after the game we applauded the Man U fans for the win and they responded with a chorus of "you dirty cockney w*****$"

Ironic as most utd fans are from surrey.

I went to see B&H Albion vs. MU in the last century. I don't care who wins (mostly) these things and love to see some underdogs make a run at it.

When it comes to being a bad loser, you can't beat the Spanish. Look at Fernando Alonso, Sergio Garcia. Have to admit that Schuster isn't Spanish but he does manage Spain's most famous team and said to the press after Wednesday's exit from the Champions League : ''It wasn't a defeat''.

As a life long Cardiff City fan I am just busting with pride to be in the semi final :). Can't wait,it's been great having the Final in Cardiff for the last few years but to go up to Wembley will be outstanding for us and it's anyones cup now.

And I am off to work at half nine and will gloat like hell to all the plastic scousers and manc fans in the factory. I've been waiting years for this, it will make up for all the years of pi55 taking I have had to endure.

Have to agree with you Gasp. Supporting Leicester City makes football a depressing game most weeks but to see England humiliated at rugby and cricket and to watch the Leicester Tigers lose to the team second from bottom of the table has made this weekend one of my most depressing for a long time.
