Emerdale’s own Bradford City

The victory of Bradford City over Aston Villa in the semi final of this year’s league cup was but the latest in a long line of football results where Goliath, against all the odds, is felled by David.
Bradford City, a team assembled for just £7,500 met Villa, whose team is worth more than £105 million, and spanked them.
More incredibly, this was not just a one off performance, for the humiliation was the aggregate result over two legs, home and away.  
There have been many cup upsets over the years, including 2nd Division Sunderland’s famous win in the FA Cup final over the all conquering Leeds United in 1973, and Wimbledon’s victory over Liverpool in 1988.
Does Bradford’s feat match these? I think so. Bradford’s success is traditionally with the oval ball, but it came to the lion’s den, and won through to the cup final.
Good luck Bradford in the final.

  1. I lived next door to a well breasted Coventry supporter at the time, and she was thrilled at the result. I spoke to an insurance salesman today in Bournemouth who reminded me of Bournemouth's 2-0 victory over the red devils, in 1984, which he reckoned to be the best ever.Who knows?I think Bradford's is up there with the best of them
