MATCH REPORT

Sheffield United won the 'Khaki' Final amid controversy as to whether organized football should be continued in time of war. The Football Asso­ciation had decided that it was better to carry on somehow, to provide relief for the workers and the warriors.

In the League. Chelsea struggled for most of the season and finished only one from the bottom. In the Cup, however, they stayed right through to the last hurdle for the first time. It was fifty-five years before they were to reach the Final again.

Nobody had expected Chelsea to do well in the Cup. The players were considered too small - Ford, at 5 ft 7 in, was the tallest of five forwards - to have much chance in the hurly-burly of cup-tie football.

On the grounds that it would otherwise interfere with war work, the Final venue was switched from London to Old Trafford, Manchester. In a one-sided game Chelsea played a long way below their best Cup form.

Molyneux should have prevented Simmons's opener for Sheffield ten minutes before half-time. Yet Chelsea's defence did keep them in with a chance until six minutes from the end. Then Fazackerley and Kitchen added further goals to give Sheffield their third Cup victory.
