83 years!

83 years!

1927 is the only time the FA Cup has been taken out of England, when Cardiff City won the world's oldest cup competition. In the semi finals they beat the Royals on our only appearance at that stage of the competition.


That is also the only year we have got to the quarter finals before and we beat the Bluebirds fierce rivals Swansea away from home 3-1.


After 83 years we are back and the Royals will face Aston Villa on Sunday 7th March 2010, 1.45pm kick off live on ITV 1.


I love the FA Cup!!!
