It's not often I'm affected by anything really but this to me had a bit of an impact.

"I was paying £10 a week to play football and now I'm in the final!"

Really like Troy Deeney. He's always giving 100% but is an extremely talented footballer too. A strange mix in this day. 

I'm unsure where any of the dislike of him comes from but it seems quite widespread. 

Personally I wanted Wolves to go through yesterday but you can't grudge Watford it after that comeback.

I was hoping to see Wolves make the final too, mainly because they were a team I liked (but didn't support) in the late 50's & early 60's. A bit like Dundee, they had a great decade, then hit the yo-yo button, but with far worse consequences, falling as far as Div.4. One of those classic industrial area 'sleeping giants'. They've also become a very good side under the current manager.

Deeney seems to be one of those cult hero players, worth his weight in gold to his club, adored by his club's fans, who can perhaps relate to his tough, rags-to-riches background....but not the 'cultured' type the EPL likes as its 'image'.

Glad its come good for Deeney but he was a bit of a bad boy in the past, got the jail for leathering some young students, that might put some off him. Watford are my London(ish) team so I'm chuffed for them.
