This is my 2500th post on the blog...............

..... at such a milestone, I really wanted to put my best bet of the day online, but it has been completely backed off the boards through the day and all the real value has now gone, so I will have to look elsewhere.

Details of the email service can be found on , the newsletter that has made over well over 130 points for subscribers in the last eight days alone !

Therefore, I will take a brief look at the big game of the day, at least on this side of the Atlantic.



Hard to see this not being close, these two are very evenly matched, but I have just had the feeling that this would be Chelsea's year to join the really big league, for some time and feel that they will do enough to take the trophy.

The match will probably be decided in midfield where the Londoner's have an edge, Ballack has hit form at exactly the right time and he is desperate to get a winner's medal, after missing out in his last final. Alongside him Lampard is incredibly motivated, I heard talk that along with John Terry, the pair are totally obsessed with winning the trophy and that this goes far beyond any normal motivation.

Ronaldo has still to impress in the very biggest games and that must now, be getting to him. Ashley Cole's injury doesn't look too bad and he is set to start, he has a fantastic record against the Portugese superstar and this will be one of the key match ups of the night.

Chelsea have more impact players on the bench that they can call upon if things are not going well. United's recent attitude has worried me somewhat, it has been very negative, compared to their normal standards. In the end, they were a little fortunate not to blow the Premiership and were favoured by some very strange decisions from the referee in the Wigan game.

Chelsea have only lost two of their last 12 meetings with United and look decent value to give their owner what he craves.

5.5 points Chelsea to win the cup 2.18 Betfair. 2.16 Pinnacle ... 2.10 + general.

Good Luck.
