      Sky Sports presents a day of football from Wembley to celebrate the Capital One Cup Final

      https://corporate.sky.com/media-cent...-one-cup-final
      Sky Sports will show 11 hours of live football programming this Sunday including live coverage of the Capital One Cup Final from Wembley.

      Sunday’s schedule begins with Sunday Supplement at 8.00am and continues with Goals on Sunday at 9:30am which will also enjoy the backdrop of the home of English football. Before the live broadcast of the Capital One Cup Final viewers can watch one of the biggest Premier League matches of the season as Liverpool play Manchester City at Anfield from 11.30am.

      From 2.30pm, Sky viewers will be treated to extensive build-up from Wembley before the Capital One Cup Final kicks off between current Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur at 4.00pm. League Cup winners Thierry Henry and Jamie Redknapp join Glenn Hoddle in the Sky Sports studio to share their valuable insight.

      Sky Sports analyst and 1995 League Cup winner Jamie Redknapp said:
      “This final has it all and I can’t wait to see Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur battle it out for the first major trophy of the English football season. There is nothing better than a domestic cup final, and with this one being a rematch of the 2008 final, Chelsea will be looking for revenge and Spurs will be looking to get another victory over their London neighbours. What a great way to get the business end of the season underway.”

      Ten men went to mow, went to mow a meadow,
      Ten men, nine men, eight men, seven men, six men, five men, four men, three men, two men, one man and his dog, SPOT!
      Went to mow a meadow,
      Chelsea! Chelsea!

      Blue is the colour, football is the game
      We're all together, and winning is our aim
      So cheer us on through the sun and rain
      Cause Chelsea, Chelsea is our name

      Soz, as a Chelsea fan, could not resist

      Will watch the Liv v Man City match and of course my boys, hopefully on the patio on sky go. Will not watch all that gumpf chatter before it.
      Will have to have the Ireland v England six nations match with iPlayer on in the background too.

      Those were the day, watching all the pre match stuff on BBC Grandstand for a footie cup final with an Its a knockout special, thankfully we have moved on

      Idiots.
      Might have been how it started.

      Some quotes taken from the Chelsea official memories.

      Chelsea can attribute some of their most famous chants to Micky Greenaway, Chelsea shed end leader and a Chelsea non-playing legend. Mick passed away in August of 1999.
      In 1981 he took a childrens tape on the pre-season tour of Sweden. On that tape he played 'one man went to mow'. What is extraordinary is that outside of childrens radio this song had never been heard. It was not a football song. We sung it in Sweden when we heard him playing it. It became a bit of a laugh. Most of us on the tour met up again, three days after returning home, for Chelsea's pre-season friendly against Exeter. We sung 'one man went to mow' for a bit of a joke. From there it went to the pubs outside the ground, The Swan, The SBA and the Britannia. And then into the grounds, at first at away games, and by the end of the 81/82 season 'Greenaway's' song was heard at home games.
