Retro Football: Remembering The 1953 FA Cup Final – Was ‘The Matthews Final’ Really All It Was Cracked Up To Be?

Who Ate All the Pies at related • 0 views

Possibly one of the greatest, and certainly one of the most iconic, FA Cup Finals of all time took place on this very day back in 1953.

It was contested by Blackpool and Bolton Wanderers. Blackpool won 4-3, with Stan Mortenson scoring a hat-trick, but curiously the game has gone down in history as 'The Matthews Final' – that's Stanley Matthews, in case you were wondering.

Yannick Bolasie has hinted that he may be in the process of knocking out a special rap anthem ahead of Crystal Palace's appearance in the FA Cup Final at Wembley next month.

The winger opened the scoring as Palace went on to beat Watford 2-1 in the semis, and it now seems as though he may have been involved in cobbling together an Eagles-themed ditty to celebrate.

Most-watched live soccer games on US TV for weekend of April 22-25, 2016

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

It was a more interesting weekend than usual in terms of soccer TV ratings as the FA Cup returned to the airwaves as Everton-Manchester United and Crystal Palace-Watford battled to try to win their way to the final. Unfortunately for most viewers, the games were pushed to FOX Sports 2, so the lackluster TV ratings were either (1) a reflection of the declining interest in the FA Cup, (2) the continued poor ratings on FOX Sports 2 or (3) a combination of both factors.

French forward Anthony Martial scored a nerveless stoppage-time winner as Manchester United edged Everton 2-1 at Wembley on Saturday to reach their first FA Cup final since 2007.

Martial set up Marouane Fellaini to score against his former club in the 34th minute, but after United goalkeeper David de Gea had superbly saved a penalty from Romelu Lukaku, Chris Smalling's 75th-minute own goal looked to have sent the semi-final to extra time.

Chelsea beat Manchester City to win FA Youth Cup

SoccerLens at related • 0 views

Chelsea’s Under-18 side beat Manchester City 3-1 (4-2 on aggregate) to clinch a third successive FA Youth Cup at rain soaked Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

The Blues have an overwhelming dominance on this competition, having now won five times in the last seven seasons. The London club also retained the Uefa Youth League last week; the future looks bright at the junior levels.
