Wembley: Free travel for some Bradford and Swansea fans

Capital One, who bought the sponsorship rights for the tournament last summer, have laid on 42 coaches that will take supporters of the two finalists to Wembley on February 24 in an initiative called the 'Capital One Convoy'.

Bradford fans who have booked coach travel to Wembley via the club's official coach provider will be sent a letter with the opportunity to have their travel refunded.

Swansea supporters who have bought match tickets will receive an email giving them the opportunity to travel on one of the coaches for free.

Michael Woodburn, chief marketing officer of Capital One, said: "Fans of both clubs face over a 300-mile round trip to Wembley, and we wanted to reward their loyalty and thank them for their passionate support in the competition throughout the season."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
