Ah, the FA Cup Final. Used to be the only club game played at Wembley, and the only one that was live on TV. Now we have the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley, play-off finals, the League Cup, the Charity Community Shield and I don’t know how many other matches played there. And hundreds of games live on TV.
