Chelsea vs. Bradford City, FA Cup: Second half thread

Mike Hewitt/Getty Images

So as we practice using our imaginations to fill in the gaps of the radio commentary and picture the men in blue running around on a pristine Stamford Bridge pitch, Chelsea are up one and looking for more at half-time against League One Bradford City.

There was a shaky moment early, which drew a top class save from Petr Čech, but then Chelsea settled in and were duly rewarded by a goal from a corner.  Gary Cahill's goal has been described in some amazingly glowing terms.  Can't wait to see it!

Just before half-time, Bradford apparently gave the ball away, Ramires drove at goal, played the ball wide to Salah, whose pass back was good enough to leave Ramires with an easy finish.  1-2 and a goal for 2-0.  That should've been the tie done and dusted then.

Except then Jon Stead got a goal out of nowhere.

So 2-1 to Chelsea at the half.
