Massive well done to Chorley born boss Phil Parkinson who is taking Bradford to Wembley in the Capital One Cup. To beat Wigan, Arsenal and Villa at home and only lose in the last minute on the night.
Chorley is going to wembley ;)

It's good to see Bradford do well, especially with a squad that has a few former non-league players in it;
Jon McLaughlin (played for both Harrogate clubs)
James Meredith (York City)
James Hanson (Guiseley)
Michael Nelson (Leek Town, Spennymoor United, Bishop Auckland)
and of course Ex-Magpie Steve Williams (he must be gutted he fell out of favour at Valley Parade, we was a regular not too long ago!)

Just goes to show that non-league football can be a stepping stone to bigger and better things, including Wembley!

What's more is if Chelsea get through against Swansea and finish in a Champions League spot at the end of the season, Bradford City will be in the Europa League next season!

I think Bradford have to win it to get into europa league ..

If Chelsea get there and win it, the Europa League spot goes to the Premier League -- I think :?

You have to win the League Cup to qualify for Europe. If Chelsea or Swansea qualify for Europe in the league and then win the league cup, the competitions qualifying place in Europe will go to the highest place side in the Premier League not to qualify; unlike the FA Cup where the losing finalist takes the European spot.
