It's 16 - Bolton in 2000 and Chelsea in 2010 are missing from that list.

Didn't we lose 3-0 to Chelsea in the FA Cup semifinal in 2010?

Yes, and Bolton 2000 semifinal. When Holdsworth missed an open goal. We should have signed Gudjohnsen after that match, he was ace.

Basically in recent years we've won when the better side and lost when the worse side. The exception was Liverpool where we were just great on the day

Most of the pundits thought we'd win last year. The bookies favoured Fulham. We're favourites this year.

I didn’t realise we were so fancied by the bookies to be honest. Feels like a closer call than the odds suggest, based on recent results and performances.

I guess they'll always go with the team that finished higher, and even more so if they've gone on a run like we did. The one thing keeping me nervous is that I read a Brentford forum and there was much talk of DS's teams following a good streak with four or five bad results.

Worry not though, I voted the correct way in the poll!
