LET US REMEMBER 46 YEARS AGO
England 1966
Alf Ramsey Caricature1966: Football glory for England
England have won football's World Cup for the first time since the tournament began in 1930.
A crowd of 93,000 spectators - including the Queen and Prince Phillip - filled London's Wembley Stadium to watch the host nation play West Germany in the final game of the 1966 championships.
Another 400 million people around the world watched the keenly fought match on television.
In the final moments of extra time Geoff Hurst powered home his third goal to give England a 4-2 victory and to become the first man ever to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final.
After Germany had taken an early lead, Hurst levelled the score for England by half time with a header from a free kick taken by captain Bobby Moore.

Victory in sight
England came out with courage and determination after the break and glimpsed glory thirteen minutes from time as Martin Peters took their second goal.
But a free kick to Germany 15 seconds from full time gave Wolfgang Weber a close-range shot into Gordon Banks' goal and took the score to 2-2. 
  
In the crucial minutes before the decisive half hour of extra time England manager Alf Ramsey was heard to rally his team, saying: "All right. You let it slip. Now start again."

A dubious goal by Hurst - glanced off the line by Weber and only given after consultation between the Swiss referee and Soviet linesman - put England ahead in the last 15 minutes, before the striker's third goal put the game out of Germany's reach.

Bobby Moore went up to the royal box to collect the solid gold Jules Rimet trophy from Queen Elizabeth.

In the largest World Cup ever - numbering 70 countries - England were among the favourites and got as far as the semi-final, against newcomers Portugal, before conceding a goal.
 Geoff Hurst's second goal and the decision of referee Gottfried Dienst have continued to be controversial.

But photographic technology has so far been unable to offer decisive evidence about whether or not the ball crossed the goal-line and Hurst remains the only player to score a hat-trick in the World Cup finals.
England have failed to reach the World Cup final since 1966 and did not even qualify for the last rounds of the tournament in the US in 1994.

Sidney Bathgate
THE SID BATHGATE APPRECIATION SOCIETY
This page has been prepared by the Sid Bathgate Appreciation Society. In memory of a real footballer. Sidney Bathgate was born on 20th December 1919 in Aberdeen. Served in the RAF during the Second World War. Career History - Chelsea Football Club, Hamilton Academicals, Parkvale, Huntly, Keith, Elgin City, and Deveronvale. Married with 3 sons & 2 daughters. Retired from Football 1958. Passed Away: Age 43 in 1963. He played 147 games for Chelsea between 1946-53. A hard tackling fullback who epitomises all those journeyman footballers who graced the game.  When we started this column we were contacted by his grandaughter who was delighted that her grandpop was thus remembered as our man to represent football.

jIMMY gREAVES
"IT'S A FUNNY OLD GAME "
as the great Jimmy Greaves used to say, and possibly still does. Jimmy Greaves remains England’s third highest goalscorer and a much loved football personality. The phenomenal striker graced the game from 1957 to 1979, most famously playing for Chelsea, AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur. Arguably the most consistent striker in English football history, Greaves still retains the record of finishing top league goalscorer in six seasons; a record that has never been matched. At Spurs Greaves won the FA Cup twice and also the European Cup Winners’ Cup ensuring Tottenham as the first British team to win a European trophy and cementing his place in the clubs history as one of their greatest ever players. For England Greaves holds an exceptional scoring ratio – 44 goals in 57 games. Greaves was part of the 1966 World Cup squad but due to injury was replaced by Geoff Hurst who infamously scored a hat trick in the final. After short spells at West Ham and Barnet, Greaves enjoyed a successful post-playing career. He became a popular television presenter and pundit, striking up a memorable partnership with Ian St. John. Together they hosted the popular lunch time show called Saint and Greavsie. Greaves has sinced toured the country as an admired and in-demand after dinner speaker. Currently Greaves is doing a theatre tour telling his stories and hilarious anecdotes, along with guest speakers.

THEY AREN'T FIT ENOUGH TO LICK HIS BOOTS
He has given all for his club and country.  He embraces the Bulldog Spirit and is perhaps the Greatest Central Defender in The World.  He was cleared of any crime in a British Court of Law.  So the English FA try and punish him to pacify a vociferace minority  of politically correct people who aren't fit enough to lick his boots.  Well John we do not agree with the 3 words you are alleged to have uttered to a journeyman QPR player*  last year but we do agree that if a court of law has found you "not guilty"- then some administrative tribunal has no right to overrule that Court of Law.  You have a case against your accusers and the English F.A.  Under the Protection From Harassment Act 1997 you may claim damages from them and under section 2 of that Act those responsible may face up to 6 months inprisonment and/or a Class V fine.
The FA were also under fire from the Terry camp after it emerged that they changed Regulation 7.3 in the summer to lower the burden of proof in misconduct cases.   According to the rules for the 2011-12 season — the period when Terry made the racial insult — the more serious the accusation, the higher the standard of proof required to secure a result.
The FA amended the rule and simplified it to ‘civil balance of probabilities’, but the commission accepted Terry’s argument that the case should be heard on the rules in place at the time of the insult. The commission, comprising barrister Craig Moore ( Leeds), Stuart Ripley(Manchester) and Maurice Armstrong (Huntingdon), ruled that Terry used the words ‘f****** black c***’ as an insult. They did rule that Terry is not a racist. The main problem is that there has always been different interpretations about insults. It is presumed that rude language used by a workman on say a building site is different to that of a professional man like a doctor. What Terry said may be heard every day in the cafes around the Bush.  But John Terry is a guy that usually talks with his boots not a medical practitioner. The words used on radio and television to-day would have made our grandparents turn in their grave. If the media allow such words. He attended
Eastbury Comprehensive School in Barking,  not a law degree at the University of London  .

 *In October 2006, Anton Ferdinand was arrested on assault charges following a fracas outside a nightclub in Ilford. He was charged in November 2006.  He appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court on 12 November 2007 charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray, arising from this incident. It was alleged that Ferdinand had punched Emile Walker. In his defence, Ferdinand said he had feared he was going to be robbed of his £64,000 watch and was defending himself.  On 20 November 2007, Ferdinand was acquitted as the jury accepted he was acting in self-defence. In March 2007 it was revealed that Ferdinand had been fined two weeks' wages (estimated at £45,000) for lying about his whereabouts. Ferdinand told West Ham United he needed to go to the Isle of Wight to visit his grandmother when in fact, he went to South Carolina to celebrate his 22nd birthday

GLASGOW RANGERS UPHOLD THE RULE OF LAW

The Scottish Premier League side won a case at the Court of Session , with a judge ruling the Scottish FA had no power to impose a signing ban on the club for bringing the game into disrepute. A statement from FIFA read: "At the time of writing we have not received any communication from the Scottish FA. "In such a case, FIFA will ask the Member Association to take action so that the club withdraws its request from the ordinary courts. "As a general rule, in case a club is seeking redress in front of ordinary court, as mentioned above the Member Association shall take direct action in order to safeguard the principle laid down in art. 64 par. 2 of FIFA Statutes, which shall be, in view of art. 64 par. 3 incorporated in the Member Associations’ Statutes. "FIFA will closely monitor the situation so that the issue is resolved as fast as possible." Rangers' case will now be referred back to the original appeal tribunal, which has been ordered to operate within the framework which exists. Rule 66 allows for a maximum fine of £100,000 to be imposed, as well as ejection from the Scottish Cup, a suspension, expulsion from participation in the game and/or termination of SFA membership. Such rules are illegal by common law.
Isn't it time that these quasi-judicial administrative  authorities & tribunals learnt that there is a rule of law. If they fail to abide by that rule of law and the human rights available to every citizen then they should be hauled in front of the Courts of Human Rights and be dealt with. Blatter and his cohorts are subject to that law, as we all are

The Richest Football Clubs
Jose Mourinho CaricatureReal Madrid have become the first sports team in the world to generate annual revenue in excess of 400 million euros (362 million pounds, 543 million dollars), according to figures compiled by accountancy firm Deloitte.

The latest edition of the Deloitte Football Money League published on Tuesday also shows Spanish giants Real as the world’s largest revenue generating football club, for the fifth consecutive year.

Real’s broadcast income of 161 million euros was greater than the total revenue of all but the top ten clubs in the Deloitte table.

Their arch domestic rivals Barcelona moved up into second place, primarily as a result of winning last year’s Champions League final while Barca’s beaten opponents Manchester United dropped down into third position, partly as a result of sterling’s depreciation against the Euro.

Although the Premier League saw Portsmouth enter administration last week, and doubts persist over the huge debts being carried by United, who recently launched a 500 million pounds bond issue scheme, seven English clubs feature in Deloitte’s top 20 with Arsenal moving up into fifth place.


Figures in the report showed the world’s most financially successful football clubs had managed to weather problems caused by the global economic downturn.

Overall revenues for the top 20 clubs increased in 2008/09 and were over 3.9 billion euros, as, the report said “top clubs showed relative resistance to the economic downturn”.

Dan Jones, partner in Deloitte’s sport business group, said: “Real Madrid’s 10 percent increase in revenue to 401 million euros (342 million pounds) came despite a relatively disappointing season domestically and in Europe.

“Broadcast income provided Real with its largest increase in revenue, and at 161 million euros (137 million pounds) is now greater than the total revenue of all but the top ten Money League clubs.

“Barcelona’s unprecedented on-pitch success, winning a domestic double and the Champions League, helped drive a revenue increase by 57 million euros, the largest absolute increase of any Money League club, to 366 million euros.

“This resulted in a Spanish one-two at the top of the Money League as, like in Rome last May, Barcelona proved just too strong for Manchester United. United slip to third and, like other English clubs, were impacted by the continuing depreciation of the Pound Sterling against the Euro.
“The scale of this is shown by the fact that if exchange rates remained at their June 2007 level, United would be top of the Money League table.”

Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Newcastle, despite being in the second-tier Championship, were the other English clubs in the top 20.

UEFA chief Michel Platini has repeatedly hit out at ‘financial doping’ of clubs, in moves seen as thinly veiled attacks on the financial structure of several leading English teams.

But Jones said: “Whilst there has been much recent comment on the finances of English football clubs, we believe the fundamentals of football remain strong.

“Financial problems experienced at the very highest level are far more likely to be a result of mismanagement, weak cost control or a lack of available credit than any problems with revenue generation.”

All of the ‘big five’ European leagues featured in the list with Germany contributing five clubs, Italy four, and France and Spain represented by two teams each.

STATUES OF  SOME FAMOUS UK FOOTBALLERS & MANAGERS
unveiled October 1st 2010

Peter Osgood

A fitting tribute to the great Peter Osgood took place Friday evening, culminating with the unveiling of sculptor Philip Jackson’s 9-foot statue of the Chelsea legend outside the West Stand. This private ceremony – the statue will be open to the public on Saturday – was superb, featuring appearances by Ray Wilkins, Frank Lampard, John Terry, Bobby Tambing and Roy Bentley.

Peter’s widow Lynn was also in attendance, and had this to say: “Peter would have been so proud. He adored Chelsea just as his fans adored him and there can be no greater recognition than to have his magnificent statue here, outside Stamford Bridge. I just hope that wherever he is he is able to appreciate the amount of love and affection shown to him, as the tributes paid to him from the Chelsea fans have been wonderful.”

English Football Hall of Fame inductees

The National Football Museum is a museum in Preston, Lancashire, England, founded to preserve, conserve and interpret several important collections of Association Football memorabilia. It was built outside Deepdale as the stadium is, as of 2008, the oldest continuously used football league ground in the world. The trustees have voted to move the museum to the Urbis exhibition centre in Manchester, with Preston becoming a secondary site. However, this depends on funding from Manchester City Council and the North West Development Agency. The FA, however, are reported to be committed to spending around £10million on a state-of-the-art museum at Wembley by 2011. Its president is Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton.  English Football Hall of Fame  is housed at the museum

Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year

George Best CaricatureFootball Writers' Association Footballer of the Year (often called the FWA Footballer of the Year, or in England simply the Footballer of the Year) is an annual award given to the player who is adjudged to have been the best of the season in English football. The award has been presented since the 1947–48 season, when the inaugural winner was Blackpool winger Stanley Matthews. The latest winner of the award as of 2008-09 is Steven Gerrard of Liverpool. Eight players have won the award on more than one occasion, the most recent being Cristiano Ronaldo, who won his second award in the 2007–08 season.

The winner is selected by a vote amongst the members of the Football Writers' Association (FWA), which comprises around 400 football journalists based throughout England. The award was instigated at the suggestion of Charles Buchan, a former professional footballer turned journalist and one of the Association's founders. The change in English Football is shown in that until 194-5 Only two footballers from outside the UK & Eire had won. Since then 11 European Footballers have won and only 4 from the UK & Eire. Back in 1955 when Chelsea applied to be the first English team to play in the European Cup the Football League refused them. For the Football League read Alan Hardaker, Secretary and unbending autocrat, who said that he didn’t like dealing with football in Europe: “Too many wogs and Dagoes”. His attitude was supremely negative and self-aggrandising, probably influenced by the fear that his own competition would be overshadowed by the new one. How very right he was!

AND NOW THE PEOPLE WHO RAN THE CLUBS
Foreign players dominate our teams, foreign coaches manage all our leading clubs and now the foreign owners are elbowing their way into our boardrooms. I don't know, they come over here, nicking our clubs, using the word 'franchise', eating pumpkin pie. Anyway, we've found 10 reasons why they can't be any worse than some of the home-grown rascals who have run our precious clubs. This is not a definitive list. Sadly there are plenty more where these came from.
This list Compiled by http://www.midfielddynamo.com/
toptenBOB LORD. The Butcher of Burnley

What was he like?  He rarely spoke with fans.

At the first game of 1981, at Brentford, he was sat on the team coach when a young supporter leaned in and said ‘Happy New Year Mr. Lord’. He would have been around 7 or 8 years old and was wearing new scarf, bob cap etc. He was ignored so tried again. Again ignored he climbed onto the first step of the coach and repeated his greeting. This time a reply, ‘Get off this bus,’ said the Burnley chairman.

He did have an amazing ability to upset people though and didn’t like it when things didn’t go his own way. He once stood for President of the Football League and was totally confident that he would be elected by a comfortable margin. In the end he lost out to Newcastle’s Lord Westwood, a dodgy looking character with a patch over one eye. People who he thought would back him didn’t and he didn’t like it. He called the decision a disgrace and said the problem was the fact that Lord came at the wrong end of his name. "I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth," he added.
He always put Burnley first. On one occasion, during one of his regular disagreements with the television companies, he decided he didn’t want the cameras inside Turf Moor. He said very publicly, "If the BBC don’t shift their cameras from Turf Moor I’ll be down there myself and personally burn them. They are on the ground without our consent and I don’t care if even Harold Wilson (then Prime Minister) has given them permission."

The year of 1974 though was his peak for TV arguments. He banned all the Burnley directors from Elland Road because then Leeds chairman had took offence at his remarks about Jews and the way television was being run by them. The banned directors missed a treat as Burnley won 4-1. Only weeks before the BBC had to show a League game on their FA Cup special as Lord banned the cameras yet again from Turf Moor for a 6th round tie against Wrexham, a game they won 1-0.

When we complain today about the lack of positive comment from the media this might explain why to some extent.
Rogue Directors of Football Clubs abound & some stories are unbelieveable- they include the self sstyled Teenager "Property Tycoon" who was the saviour of Aldershot Town and Ken Bates who called a Football Press Conference to announce he was leaving him wife.

No. Owner / Club Details
1 Ken Richardson
Doncaster
[ image: Ken
                                            Richardson: Faces jail
                                            sentence]
In 1995 Ken Richardson hired two local crooks to burn down the main stand. One, an ex SAS man, left his mobile phone at the scene and even the South Yorks plod managed to rumble the protagonists. Richardson was found guilty in 1999 and jailed for four years. Other stunts pulled included attempting to sell the ground even though it was owned by the council and his eccentric managerial appointment of a certain Mark Weaver who'd previously run the club shop. At Stockport.
2 Darren Brown
Chesterfield
Former chairman Darren
                                          Brown
Brown came to prominence with his ownership of the Sheffield Steelers ice hockey team, a dominant force in the sport. Brown wanted to branch into football and `bought' Chesterfield, a well run and profitable club, with money borrowed from the previous owner. He proceeded to run the club into the ground by robbing them of around £1m to fund a lavish lifestyle and prop up his other, ailing sports clubs. His extravagances included using club funds to buy a £2,500 lawn mower and paying the council tax of numerous American ice hockey players. The Serious Fraud Office investigated Brown and he was found guilty and sentenced to 4 years for his plundering of the club in 2004.
3 Anton Johnson
Rotherham
Southend
Scarborough
Johnson was a scoundrel who ran Rotherham into the ground in the early 1980s before owning Southend, without giving up his holdings at Millmoor. He illegally owned two clubs and was guilty of financial malpractice at both. In 1985 the FA banned him from ever being involved in football again. Naturally he washed up at Scarborough in 1998 after an abortive attempt to buy Doncaster off our old pal, Ken Richardson. Scarborough were relegated from the Football League in 1999.
4 Peter Ridsdale
Leeds Utd
Barnsley

"We lived the dream". Those words, we think, we're used to justify his suicidal financial gamble to establish Leeds as a major force in European football. It failed. Currently they're not even a force in Yorkshire football. Ridsdale was a self proclaimed fan in the director's box. He was also a media whore with an eye for a photo op (see his walk on the pitch to the Leeds fans at the height of his grandstanding). He left Leeds with a disastrous legacy which he's never properly acknowledged and after washing up briefly at Barnsley (who were also in free-fall) he is now fronting the consortium running Cardiff. The proverbial guy who falls in a dung heap and comes out smelling of aftershave. Well, Blue Stratos anyway.
5 Freddie Shepherd
Newcastle
See full size
                                          image
A man with the looks of Austin Powers' foe Fat Bastard, but without the charm. Shepherd represents a corporate fat cat mentality that has come with the advent of the Premiership. He is owner caste equivalent of the footballing badge kisser, always ready with a trophy signing, P45 for the gaffer or yet another attention deflecting speech about the `Geordie Nation'. This odious man really showed off his true colours, and sadly much else, when he was the victim of a News of the World sting, where he laughed at the fans that bought overpriced shirts and slated Newcastle women. All this from the comfortable vantage point of a far eastern brothel.

6 George Reynolds
Darlington
180 former darlington
                                          chairman george reynolds
This ex-con was a self made multi-millionaire who washed up at Darlington in 1999 promising to take them into the Premiership. Bizarrely, he then built the club a superb 27,000 seater stadium. Staggering, as the clubs average crowd was around 4,000. He totally failed to bring in the players necessary for progress and saddled the club with massive debts and a white elephant of a stadium. In 2005 after leaving the club, he was convicted of tax evasion and was sentenced to 3 years. A classic rags to riches to rags story.
7 Douglas Craig
York City
Craig first sprang to prominence in 1994 when he became the only club chairman to refuse to sign up to a national anti-racism campaign, a stance he maintained for six years. Craig almost sent City to the wall in 2002 when he `transferred' ownership of Bootham Crescent to a holding company for £165,000 and then tried to force the club to buy back the ground (for £4.5m!) or he would close the club down. A supporters Trust was founded and after a gargantuan effort, secured the ground and the clubs future. Craig, of course, made a massive profit. What was particularly galling was his role at the FA enabled him to participate in decisions such as the relocation of Wimbledon to Milton Keynes. It so reassuring to know that the fate of the game lies with such genuine people.
8 Terry Venables
Tottenham
Portsmouth
It's debatable whether El Tel has ever truly owned a club, but those which he has run have always managed to be in a much worse state than when he took over. Alan Sugar installed him as managing director at Spurs in 1991 after he'd failed to land the club with another business partner. Sugar dismissed Venables in 1993 after an acrimonious split. He later bought a 51% stake in Portsmouth in 1997 for £1, grabbed as much money as he legally could and disappeared back out of the door with the club bottom of the league. The DTI managed to get Venables disqualified from being a company director in 1998, partly down to his dealings at Tottenham. He then settled down to the job he was surely destined for. Ruining a once formidable coaching reputation by playing Phil Neal to McLaren's Graham Taylor.
9 Robert Maxwell
Oxford Utd
Derby County
The bouncing Czech rolled into the university city, not noted for its footballing heritage, in 1982. Within 2 years he'd shown his commitment to the club by trying to buy Manchester United and attempting to merge Oxford with local rivals Reading, to form the ludicrously titled Thames Valley Royals. To be fair, the team performed miracles under his stewardship as the astute management of Jim Smith took them into the First Division in 1985 and then to a Milk Cup final victory in 1986. In 1987 Maxwell bought Derby and installed his son, Kevin, as Chairman at the Manor Ground. Oxford suffered heavily from the aftermath of Maxwell's suicide in 1991 and have never really recovered.

10 Stan Flashman
Barnet
Stan
                                          Flashman image 1
Flashman was a Cockney ticket tout of the old school, operating in circles, shady even for lower league chairmen. More in the rogue than villain category, Flashman owned Barnet as they made it to the Football League under the gregarious management of Barry Fry. He ran the club from 1985 to 1993 and Fry reckoned he was sacked and reinstated 8 times during his tenure. Flashman died in 1999 aged 69.

It was a letter from William McGregor, a director at Aston Villa, to four other clubs on March 2, 1888, which led to the formation of the world's first league football competition. "I beg to tender the following suggestion," McGregor, a Perthshire-born draper, wrote to Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers, Preston North End and West Bromwich Albion, "that ten or twelve of the most prominent clubs in England combine to arrange home-and-away fixtures each season…"   Three weeks later, on the eve of West Bromwich's victory over Preston in the FA Cup final, a meeting was held at Anderton's Hotel in Fleet Street, London, to discuss McGregor's plans. A further meeting on April 17 at the Royal Hotel, Manchester, agreed the name 'The Football League', and the first season kicked off on September 8 with 12 member clubs.The first winners were Preston North End (see picture to the right)  Over time, the competition has grown from a single division of twelve clubs to its present four tier structure of Premier League (which became independent in 1996), Championship, League One and League Two, with 92 clubs in membership. Since 1986, automatic promotion and relegation between the Football League and National Conference has been in effect, making it theoretically possible for a club to climb from the very lowest level of the pyramid all the way to the English Premiership.

Ian St John and Jimmy GreavesTHE FA CUP
The oldest domestic football competition in the world
("I used to be chairman of fa. Now I'm Chairman of the F.A" - Joe Mears)
 The present FA Cup trophy is the fourth. The first, the 'little tin idol', was used from the inception of the Cup in 1871–2 until it was stolen from a Birmingham shoe shop window belonging to William Shillcock while held by Aston Villa on 11 September 1895. It was never seen again. The FA fined Villa £25 to pay for a replacement. Almost 60 years later, the thief admitted that the cup had been melted down to make counterfeit half-crowns.
The second trophy was a replica of the first, and was last used in 1910 before being presented to the FA's long-serving president Lord Kinnaird. It was sold at Christie's on 19 May 2005 for £420,000 (£478,400 including auction fees and taxes) to David Gold, the chairman of West Ham United. David Gold has loaned this trophy to the National Football Museum which is housed in Preston North End's Deepdale Stadium and it is on permanent display to the public. A new, larger, trophy was bought by the FA in 1911 designed and manufactured by Fattorini's of Bradford and won by Bradford City in its first outing, the only time a team from Bradford has reached the final. This trophy still exists but is now too fragile to be used, so an exact replica was made by Toye, Kenning and Spencer  and has been in use since the 1992 final. A "backup" trophy was made alongside the existing trophy in 1992, but it has not been used so far, and will only be used if the current trophy is lost, damaged or destroyed. (An otherwise identical, smaller replica was also made by Fattorini, the North Wales Coast F A Cup trophy, contested annually by members of that regional Association.)

A Brief History Of The English FA Cup.  The Greatest Club Cup Tournament in The World
At a meeting held in the offices of The Sportsman in London on 20th July 1871, a proposal by FA Honorary Secretary Charles Alcock "that it is desirable that a Challenge Cup should be established in connection with the Association, for which all clubs belonging to the Association should be invited to compete" met with favour and was finally approved three months later.

The Second FA Cup
http://images.mirror.co.uk/upl/m4/mar2009/9/0/faryl-smith-pic-pa-image-1-116240448.jpg
The first FA Cup competition in season 1871-72 had fifteen entries. (This season more than 600 took part.) Wanderers, a team formed by ex-public school and university players, won the first final 1-0 against Royal Engineers at Kennington Oval. A crowd of 2,000 attended the match and they each paid one shilling for the privilege.

The original trophy, much smaller than the present one, was made by Messrs Martin, Hall & Co. and cost £20. In 1895, after Aston Villa had won the competition, the cup was stolen from the window of a firm of football outfitters in Birmingham where it had been placed on display. It was never recovered. The present trophy, played for since 1992, is the competition's fourth and an exact replica of the third.

The FA Cup has become established as one of the country's great sporting institutions and  is watched throughout the world. It is now 132 years old and yet, season by season, it generates tremendous interest not only in the country of its birth but all over the world. The history and tradition of the competition, and the pageantry of the Cup Final, is familiar to millions.

All clubs in the Premier League and Football League are automatically eligible, and clubs in the next six levels of the English football league system are also eligible provided they have played in either the FA Cup, FA Trophy or FA Vase competitions in the previous season. Newly formed clubs that start playing in a high league, such as AFC Wimbledon or FC United of Manchester, may not therefore play in the FA Cup in their first season. All clubs entering the competition must also have a suitable stadium. It is very rare for top clubs to miss the competition, although it can happen in exceptional circumstances. Manchester United withdrew from the 1999–2000 competition due to their participation in the FIFA Club World Championship, although this was highly controversial at the time.

Welsh sides that play in English leagues are eligible, although since the creation of the League of Wales there are only six such clubs remaining: Cardiff City (the only non-English team to win the tournament, in 1927), Swansea City, Wrexham, Merthyr Tydfil, Newport County and Colwyn Bay. In the early years other teams from Wales, Ireland and Scotland also took part in the competition, with Glasgow side Queen's Park reaching the final in 1884 and 1885 before being barred from entering by the Scottish Football Association.

                              Stadium in 1923.The number of entrants has increased greatly in recent years. In the 2004–05 season, 660 clubs entered the competition, beating the long-standing record of 656 from the 1921–22 season. In 2005–06 this increased to 674 entrants, in 2006–07 to 687, in 2007–08 to 731 clubs, and for the 2008–09 and 2009–10 competitions it reached 762.  By comparison, the other major English domestic cup, the League Cup, involves only the 92 members of the Premier League and Football League.

Three clubs have won consecutive FA Cups on more than one occasion: Wanderers (1872, 1873 and 1876, 1877, 1878), Blackburn Rovers (1884, 1885, 1886 and 1890, 1891), and Tottenham Hotspur (1961, 1962 and 1981, 1982).  Six clubs have won the FA Cup as part of a League and Cup double, namely Preston North End (1889), Aston Villa (1897), Tottenham Hotspur F.C. (1961), Arsenal (1971, 1998, 2002), Liverpool (1986) and Manchester United (1994, 1996, 1999). Arsenal and Manchester United share the record of three doubles. Arsenal has won a double in each of three separate decades (70s, 90s, 00s). Manchester United's three doubles in the 1990s highlights their dominance of English football at the time.
