As a continuation to my previous post, the English FA Cup Semi-Finals line up this year is something new for everybody, especially those who follow football, the English Leagues in particular. In the Quarter-Finals, the results were as follow.

  • Man Utd (BPL) v Portsmouth (BPL) 0-1 Surprise
  • Barnsley (CH) v Chelsea (BPL) 1-0 SurpriseSurpriseSurprise
  • Middlesbrough (BPL) v Cardiff (CH) 0-2 Surprise
  • Bristol Rovers (L1) v West Bromwich Albion (CH) 1-5

So when the Semi-Finals draw was made, it came out like this.

  • Portsmouth (BPL) v West Bromwich Albion (CH)
  • Cardiff (CH) v Barnsley (CH)

Unless Portsmouth played true to their form in their Semi-Final, we might be in for a shocker here. A team well outside the BPL could lift the Cup of Dreams this year! What's more, a team from Wales, and not England might win the coveted English Cup. Good luck everybody!
