    . He could also have no arguments about the sending-off of Kuszczak, either

    To be fair, Ian, Anderson and Rooney were behind Kuszczak, so the ‘keeper was not the last line of defence. Unless of course, it was not a cynical foul in your book and deserved a card which is not a card in my book.

    Oh well, I don’t think much can be made of that anyway

    I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a match like I did the Barnsley game. Their tactics were absolutely spot on, and they had Chelsea beaten from the first kick.

    I particularly enjoyed Kayode Odejayi. He’s the sort of player you don’t ever experience in the Premiership, firstly because he’s not good enough. Chelsea were looking at him as if he’d just landed from space, none of them had a clue what to do. For the goal, Cudicini had an idea – pretending to be fouled – but even that old Premiership standby didn’t work. Kozluk was also terrific, but the stand-out for me was the bloke in your picture, Bobby Hassell. He put on an absolute masterclass in defensive midfield play. Plus he’s got a brilliant old-fashioned footballer’s name.

    Sadly (for me) I think Portsmouth’s name is already penciled onto the FA Cup this season. For once, though, I don’t mind. Yesterday was the best day in the FA Cup that I can remember.
