    I suppose. I just think Clarke has done a better job, taking over from a better manager (than Laudrup) and a worse team than him too.

    Judge at the end of the season though I suppose. Both teams might have a meltdown.

    Laudrup is really just building on what Rodgers and Martinez started. Really it's Martinez that completely changed the direction and philosophy of that club. Again, not that Laudrup isn't doing very well but it'd say Clarke has had a greater challenge on his hands, and considering he has them above Swansea in the league despite only just coming up, it has to be him for me.

    Dyer reminds me of a younger Defoe, he's gonna get at least one more goal this game I reckon.

    I think both managers really need to stay where they are for a few more seasons too.

    It's depressing that out of last years "Hot new managers on the scene" Rodgers is the one doing the best.

    "Bradford success has come from set-pieces all through their run. Swansea have something Arsenal, Wigan and Villa don't... namely the ability to defend them competently. This is over now."
    I really hope Swansea concede from a free-kick.

    Commentator sprouting some top class rubbish there.

    Apparently England is the only country in the world where a team like Bradford could make it to a major cup final.

    Obviously never heard about the madness that is the French cup. I'm sure it's happened in numerous other countries.

    Why would England be the only country where this could happen? I don't understand the logic there at all.

    Not quite the same (and would never happen in England) but Montpellier winning the league is much more shocking and impressive.

    Maybe because most leagues don't have a second mickey mouse cup.

    Heh. :)

    Oh well, that's that. Really hoped it would be more of a contest.

    Because the myopia of British commentary/punditry knows no bounds.

    That's that then.

    Was always going to be a massive ask of Bradford. Fair play to Swansea.

    As impressive as they've been I always felt this was a step too far for Bradford. I think they played Wigan, Arsenal and Villa at the right time and did the damage at their own ground too.

    Clarke isn't really a proper manager. He's head coach at a club that's got a fantastic backroom structure.
