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

Match Day Moments - FA Cup 3rd Round

Here at Vital Chelsea we`re proud that, in recent years, we`ve established a reputation as a great FA Cup side.

The past few seasons have seen us win it with alarming regularity when you consider how long it actually took us to win it once.

It also dismays us that so many clubs, including premier League clubs treat it with a degree of contempt, seeing it as an irritant that gets in the way of Premier League football.

Therefore, we thought we`d echo the words of Joe Mourinho who just loves the competition and has remarked,

"For teams without European competition where FA Cup matches are in a normal weekend. I don`t see a reason not to try and win it."

"Even for the smallest clubs, it may be difficult to reach the final, but the FA Cup has a special feeling and a special meaning."

"To win the FA Cup at Wembley and feel what it means was one of the high moments in my career."

"As a kid at the time of black and white TV the English FA Cup Final was one of the few matches I was waiting for with my father and friends b the end of the season."

"In Italy you play the Coppa Italia with just 3,000 fans. Here, every match is a big one."


and give the competition all the support it deserves.

Therefore, we thought we`d run a 3rd round day Match Day Moments, just to see how it is received.

Oh, great news Desmond; now perhaps we can see what Karanka does with this favour from friend Mourinho, and what Kenny looks like in the English game. Good luck to the lad ;)
HGH Magic
The way this game is going perhaps it's safe to say Blackburn read the Wigan script? Can't believe City are still 1-1 with the game almost done!

We have a great record in the FA cup over the last 7-8 years, and a fine record at wembley too!! Let's keep it going! #COYB #KTBFFH

Spuds coached by a self-professed gooner Tim Sherwood trailing the gooners by a goal; is the Spuds coach earnestly trying to win the tie or helping the gooners end their abysmal trophy drought? Time alone will tell, I guess ;)

Lewandowski to Bayern confirmed on a free transfer, **yawn**!!!! !!!#OLDNEWS #ASpredicted
syed230183_chelseafc
@syed - Talk about small club mentality! So BVB refused to cash in on Lewandoski [25m as then speculated] when he still had a full 12 months to run on his contract only to gift him to their superiors, Bayern, on a free??? #cluelessdumbasses
HGH Magic
...yet someone suggested Klopp should be Chelsea boss instead of The Special One. *smh*
HGH Magic
