The FA Cup reaches Wembley


We now have to contend with the semi-finals being played at Wembley and from our beginnings at Staveley Miners Welfare we have landed ourselves the Manchester derby.

No Rooney and no Tevez for this one, ruled out by bad language and a hamstring injury respectively but if I was a betting man my money would be going on the blue side given our record over the season.

We've had only one winner so far in 12 rounds, and that was Warrington Town in the second round qualifying when, after beating Parkside, they went on to beat Bamber Bridge.

The game kicks off at 5:15 p.m. this afternoon and then we'll find out if the Clarets Mad curse is to continue.
