Semi-Final Referee Named
This Saturday, the biggest two clubs in London go head-to-head in what has the potential to be an epic FA Cup semi-final clash.
With both clubs harbouring ambitions of winning the double, it will, without a doubt, be a keenly contested semi-final.
Taking charge, referee-wise, will be none other than Martin Atkinson.
You may recall the last time these two London giants met in an FA Cup semi-final, at Wembley, Chelsea brushed aside Spurs 5-1, moving on to beat Liverpool in 2012 final.
Whilst Chelsea supporters will inevitably suggest the semi-final game was a little one-sided, we`re sure our Spurs counter-parts will point out that Chelsea were awarded a dubious goal, a goal where Atkinson signalled the ball had gone over the line but TV replays confirmed it didn`t.
There`s very little chance of that being repeated this Saturday what with the introduction of goal-line technology.
However, before Chelsea supporters point out that having Atkinson in charge might be a good omen, perhaps we should point out that Martin Atkinson was in charge when Spurs ended our long run of consecutive wins earlier this season, at White Hart Lane, when Chelsea slipped to a 2-0 defeat.
