Mowbray Aims for Wembley History

Mowbray Aims for Wembley History

Tony Mowbray has challenged his West Brom squad to make history as they look to fire their way into an FA Cup Final.

The Albion face Premier League side Portsmouth on Saturday in the first of the two (obviously) semi-finals, both of which are being held at the Football Association's costly White Elephant that is Wembley stadium.

Mowbray wants the spectacular looking stadium to be the setting for Baggies tales for years to come:

'If we were to get through against Portsmouth, this team will have a realistic chance of winning the FA Cup.'

'If we can get Albion's name put on the trophy again, the little kids who are five, six or seven now will be still talking about it when they are 77 years old.'

'They will say they were there at Wembley when Albion won the cup in 2008, and for the old boys who were at the last one in 1968 it would be something very special. It would go down in history and go through the generations. A chance like this comes around once in a lifetime and it would be a fantastic achievement if we could do it.'
