I didn’t watch the FA Cup. I used to watch them religiously, getting up early to catch the endless talk, celebrity matchs and fan interviews. I just caught a highlight show here and the sight of Kofi Annan shaking the hands of Leighton Baines and Ashley Cole was surreal to say the least. Of course he has a special word for Michael Essein, a fellow Ghanian. They must be mutually very proud of their achievements.
The result was inevitable.
