Chops to waltz down Wembley Way

Another dramatic evening of Championship play-off action saw Cardiff lose on the night to Leicester but still win through to the Wembley final on penalties. Agent Chopra scored Cardiff's first and won the penalty for the second (fouled by Ol' Cauliflower Face's son Alex), but the Foxes scored three times themselves to take the game to extra time and spot-kicks.

Chopra scored in the shoot-out, as did Nobby Solano for Leicester, and it was Mackem loanee Martyn Waghorn who had the crucial penalty saved. Wonder if Nobby is in Gwdihw drowning his sorrows as I write?

The Bluebirds' opponents at Wembley will be Blackpool, after a stunning 4-3 victory at the City Ground which brought to a devastating end Forest's 19 game unbeaten home run and which must have hurt their fans all the more because three of the Seasiders' goals were scored by DJ Campbell, on loan from Leicester. Still, can't say I'm sorry to see the Tricky Trees dumped out, after those graceless and unself-consciously moronic "1-0 to the famous club" chants back in October...
