Well Done Phil

Congratulations to top red Phil Neville for knocking Chelsea out of the FA Cup today.

After leading his team to extra time, Everton like they would be making their exit from the competition after Frank Lampard put Chelsea ahead. But with a couple of minutes of extra time remaining, Leighton Baines stepped up to score a cracking freekick to take it to penalties.

Baines then missed his penalty, but fortunately, Nicolas Anelka looked like he couldn’t care less whilst Ashley Cole skied his over. John Terry was nowhere to be found and a real captain, leader and legend stepped up to put Everton in to the 5th round.

Before we get too misty eyed, we should remember Phil also scored in a penalty shoot out in the FA Cup against us a couple of years ago! Regardless, it’s nice to see him being the hero for the day. It’s a shame he couldn’t see his career out with United but very pleased for him all the same.

Well done, Phil.

    The day he scored the penalty vs us he didn’t even celebrate. Well done Phil anyway scoring the winning penalty at the bridge has got to hurt the chelski fans who oh so believed that there time in english to dominate had arrived, that they had a better youth system than us etc etc. Once again well done Phil for scoring the winning penalty which is a HUGE FUCK YOU to those obnoxious cunts at chelski.
