A (Stamford) Bridge Too Far?
Aston Villa have been drawn away to Chelsea which could virtually guarantee the clash will be televised! Lets hope so, Chelsea charge something like £10 000 a ticket down at Stamford Bridge.
Still, this is the cup, there is no reason we can't go and give it our all and win, especially if Chelsea don't take the cup seriously. Must admit, it was the one tie I wouldn't have wanted though, was hoping for a home game!
Chelsea beat Blackburn in the 3rd round, Villa beat Leicester City in the last few minutes of extra time.
