In a one sided final, Chelsea completed a historic double for the club. It means that Chelsea and Carlo Ancelotti, as well as all the players have made history, as it is the first time the club have done the double and means they are now the seventh English club to do so, which just shows how special it is as it does not really happen that often.

The story of this seasons F.A Cup has to be the continued involvement of Portsmouth who are still in it despite going into administration and not knowing if they are going to survive the season or not. Watching them in the last round against Birmingham you could see how much it meant to the players and what an achievement it will be if they could go all the way and reach the final. It is not just good news from a football perspective with it bringing back some of the magic to the cup, but it will also be good news to the administrators who would be thinking about all the extra money they can make by reaching the finals at Wembley Stadium.

We have also had Liverpool already knocked out of the cup which probably was not as a big of a shock due to there poor form this season so far. Another early exit has been that of Arsenal though probably not as a big of a shock as they were up against opposition who knew exactly how best to play against the gunners.
