and the round played yesterday was "convenient" too

but the F.A. Cup kept the top four apart again, only masked by the Mourinho back at Chelsea factor

What a shame that the FA couldn't come up with neutral venues at the Semi-Final stage.

Re: [John Treleven] F.A. Women's Cup 2016-17 [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Manchester City clinched the S.S.E. Women's F.A. Cup in style as they beat Birmingham City 4-1 at Wembley
to lift the trophy for the first time on Saturday 13th May 2017 in front of a record crowd of 35,271.

P.F.A. Women’s Player of the Year Lucy Bronze headed her side in front
when she met Megan Campbell’s free kick from the right after 17 minutes.

Bronze turned provider eight minutes later when her run down the right was followed by a centre,
which Izzy Christiansen fired into the roof of the net first time.

Christiansen was an unused substitute for opponents Birmingham in their 2012 Cup final triumph over Chelsea.

It became worse for the Blues on 33 minutes when the F.I.F.A. World Player of the Year Carli Lloyd
headed home Campbell’s looping back post delivery after Birmingham keeper Ann-Katrin Berger had missed her punch.

Charlie Wellings gave Birmingham hope 17 minutes from time with a rasping cross shot
that fizzed past Karen Bardsley’s outstretched right hand after Brazil’s tenacious work down the right hand side.

Birmingham briefly rallied but Jill Scott made the points safe with City’s fourth ten minutes from time.
City broke at speed through substitute Toni Duggan and Christiansen, the latter feeding Scott on the edge of the box.
Scott beat her marker and powered an unstoppable effort past Berger.

The 2016 Women's Super League champions are now in possession of all three main domestic honours -
the first team to do so since Arsenal in 2011.

Birmingham had knocked out holders Arsenal and 2015 champions Chelsea to make the final,
but the 2012 winners never looked like repeating that feat on their first trip to Wembley.

Before 2014, Manchester City had never lifted a major trophy -
but they are now closing in on a potential clean sweep of all four domestic honours in the space of nine months.

Having won the W.S.L. and Continental Cup last year,
they will hope to add the W.S.L. Spring Series to their Women's F.A. Cup success.

Manchester City, who also reached the Champions League semi-finals,
had not even played in the top flight when Birmingham won the F.A. Cup in 2012.
