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.
