Just noticed your comment.
When ever the FA Cup comes around I always think of James.
I thought we would win the FA Cup that year but Chelsea beat us in the final.
I was thinking it was going to be our year, with Man U and Man C both out and Sunderland at home.
Now it is Sunderland away.
we still think of you on Friday nights.
