'If It's Football, It's Vital'


Who was the most unlikely winner? Kayode Odejayi? You guessed it. What a win. Barnsley are in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

This is unbelievable. But let's just think seriously for a minute, will the people who went to Southend in the 4th round on a friday night be able to get to Wembley? Let's hope so.

Rob Kozluk and Bobby Hassell put in a superb performance, the whole team put in a splendid effort to deny the FA cup holders a win or even a draw at Oakwell.

John Terry, Essien, Cole, Cudicini, Ballack. World class names? Well they failed to prove their worth at Oakwell this evening.

Beating Liverpool at Anfield was something, but this really does go down in history. Let's remind ourselves of the score:

Barnsley 1
Chelsea 0

Well done, and good luck with the rest of your FA cup campaign. 10 - 1 isn't bad odds, and maybe you and every other non premier league club might get lucky and Pompey and Boro get drawn together. That really would make things interesting.
