The money that poured into English soccer had been great for the emergence of clubs like Chelsea who are in focus here. One thing that money has killed is the magic and spirit of the FA cup.Who can forget the “crazy gang”Wimbledon’s triumph of 1988 over the mighty Liverpool or Coventry City winning the 1987 Cup.The magic made a cameo on Saturday afternoon at Wembley when Leicester defied the odds to win their very first FA cup at the fifth time of asking.
The foxes in truth were second best in the first half.After the Rodgers team talk they come out of their shell early in the second.The Tielemans goal will be talked about for a long time but Schmeichel’s double save from Chilwell and later on from Mount won’t get the recognition it deserves. Such is the life of a goalie. Chelsea lacked a target man upfront, full backs were getting a lot of crosses into the Leicester box. Giroud criminally did not feature in the match at all.
