Fa Cup Preview 2010 - Schedule Fa Cup Preview 2010. The big four clubs in England reclaimed their grasp on FA Cup silverware last season after losing it for the first time in over a decade following Portsmouth’s surprise victory in 2008. Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Everton came after falling a goal behind to the quickest goal in FA Cup final history. Louis Saha’s strike after only 25 seconds rubbed Roberto Di Matteo’s 1997 cup-winning goal for Chelsea from the record books but the Blues were too strong and Didier Drogba’s header brought them level before Frank Lampard’s stunning strike took the cup to Stamford Bridge.
The FA Cup proposal was made by Charles Alcock, then FA Honorary Secretary. He proposed that there should be a competition among the Association’s member clubs. His proposal was approved on October of 1871 and the FA Cup was born.
The FA Cup started small. In its first season, only 15 clubs joined and the final match was attended by a mere 2000. Now, there are more than 600 competitors vying for a place in the tournament proper (so the qualifying rounds had to be instituted) and the number of people who watched the final match at Wembley Stadium in 1923 numbered 200,000!
