THE FA CUP was regarded as one of the most sought-after trophies in the world until ten years ago.
Fast forward to the Abramovich era we find ourselves in now, and most Chelsea FC fans usually couldn’t give a hoot about it. But after not qualifying for the Champions League for next season, it’s now a different story!

The Wembley showpiece this Saturday is the last chance of winning some silverware, making it not a total shambles of a season.
Being a Chelsea fan through the good and bad times, I would always look forward to the third round draw and the prospect of playing at Wembley for the finale of the season, and it was something all fans wanted.
But in recent years I feel going for the Title and Champions League football have been the main priority and overshadowed the FA Cup.
I can’t help but think that even if Chelsea are victorious at Wembley against Jose Mourinho’s Manchester side, the season will still feel like a flop to Russian owner Roman Abramovich.
