Afternoon all and welcome to Wembley. Okay, not really Wembley and I am not in London, but today is a big day.
There has been a lot of optimism and a lot of talk but all that can be put to one side now, it counts for nothing. It is just about the football now.

So, this is the match post. I will add team news as soon as I get and updates will be happening here all afternoon.
For now, it is beer. I will be back in ten.
No real surprises with the team today, apart from maybe Ricardo playing as most thought he was injured: Big Brad, King Carlos, Ricardo Dunne, The Ginger One, Stephen Warnock, Webcam, Milly, Stiliyan Petrov, Stewart Downing, John Carew and Gabby Agbonlahor.
The bench: Luke Young, Steve Sidwell, The Fonz, Fabulous Delph, Emile Heskey, Little Brad and Habib Beye.
