The 2008 F.A. Cup final was won by Portsmouth but both teams played their part in a memorable afternoon, and the Bluebirds were not the push-overs many pundits had predicted they would be. The Championship side took the game to their Premiership rivals for long periods of time and especially in the first 30 minutes of the match dominating the play for long periods. 

The first goal was always going to be crucial and it was unfortunate that a mistake by Peter Enckleman gave the lead to Portsmouth. However it looks like the former Aston Villa custodian will become a permanent fixture in the Cardiff goal after being released by Blackburn this week.

The cup is now history and the Bluebirds can add 2008 to their 1925 "runners -up" board, let's hope we are back in two years to claim the big prize!
