Bradford City's Win Over Aston Villa In The League Cup Semifinal Could Be Worth $1.6M
Published January 24, 2013
AT A BARGAIN: In London, Paul Wilson wrote on the GUARDIAN's The Sport Blog "everyone knows all Yorkshire loves a bargain, and at the moment all of England loves a team put together for the princely sum" of £7,500 ($11,900) that "has removed no fewer than three Premier League opponents en route to the million pound Wembley jackpot of the Capital One Cup final." There "are other costs, obviously, such as wages, but Bradford appear to have learned the hard way how to live within their means." A £1M payday at Wembley "may have subtly altered those priorities" and "good luck to them." Never mind "the financial details and the promotion hunt for the moment." The team that "will be marching out at Wembley next month, to face" either the European champions or its semifinal conquerors, "is currently level on points with Fleetwood Town and Southend." It is "incredible what cups can still do" (GUARDIAN, 1/23).
