    Kernewek Den the only one to have a go at this! (And very well he's done to!) Come on Dyl, Chunky etc. have a crack!

    In the meantime a quick trivia question emerging from the weekend's FA Cup semi finals;

    Millwall and Manchester United now meet in this year's FA Cup final. In which year did two teams whose names begin with the same letter last contest the final and who were the two teams?

    No need to PM. If you think you know the answer, just post it here!
