The FA Cup unleashed it’s magic today with some astonishing results, with one particular one catching the eye. Step forward League One outfit Bradford City, who defeated Premier League leaders Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge.
Remarkably, Chelsea were even 2-0 up in the game before the Yorkshire side achieved one of the most remarkable results in the recent history of the FA Cup. Naturally, Twitter was a place to enjoy- although Chelsea fans started to disappear for a few hours.
There were jokes (lots of them), angry fans, overjoyed rivals and a tweet surfacing from three years ago that bit one Chelsea fan in the bum- although we do have to question why someone was looking at another users Twitter archive from three years back.
Still, the league leaders and Champions League hopefuls are out at the Fourth Round- and Bradford City are in the hat for the next stage of the competition.
Chelsea weren’t in the FA Cup 4-2 long at all

Remember the grief Arsenal got for losing 2-1 at Bradford? Chelsea were at home and leading 2-0…

United’s stars disappeared. City up in smoke. Chelsea sawn in half. Now we know why they call it the magic of the cup.

2 – Chelsea had conceded only two goals in their previous 11 home games before letting in four today. Curveball.

First time we have lost at home in the FA Cup in 90 minutes since March 2003.

As long as we beat Liverpool and City now, I won’t mind.
