Chelsea 2 – 1 Everton

FA Cup 30/05/2009 T Shirt Size Guide


Ah. You scored too early. If you’re going to get the opening goal in a game of this magnitude, make sure it’s the last minute, not the first. You’ve got to feel for Everton in this one. Their route to the final included knocking out Aston Villa, Liverpool (remember Dan Gosling’s unbroadcastable goal?) and Manchester United in the semi final. Harsh to then come up against a peak Lampard and Drogba. Louis Saha’s strike 25 seconds into the match remains the fastest ever cup final goal* and probably will for some time. Still not a win though, is it? Maybe next time. Yeah, maybe not.

*Thanks to İlkay Gündoğan, this is no longer the case.
