not magic enough...

Such a shame to read that the ‘magical’ FA Cup final clash between under-dogs Portsmouth and Cardiff attracted record low viewer numbers for an FA Cup Final (just 5 mil).

The finalists had battled away throughout the competition and surprisingly knocked out all the big clubs to reach the final at Wembley last Saturday.

The media had billed this game as proof that the famous ‘magic’ of the FA Cup was not dead; i.e. proving the under-dog can go on to win great things even in this modern age of corporate monster clubs that can afford to have the likes of Shevchenko sat on the bench etc.

However, such a shame to see that this kind of nostalgic ‘magic’ obviously doesn’t mean anything to enough people these days.
