Palace gains the FA Cup final

Well, despite having a "rough go" in the Premier League since January, Crystal Palace will have a shot at the FA Cup title after defeating Watford 2-1 in the semifinal at Wembley.  Given the Premier League disappointment, winning the FA Cup would be a great highlight for the season (and the American investors).

Unfortunately they have to play Manchester United, who has definitely got more talent, and who after a slow start has been playing well in the Premier League lately (and they defeated Crystal Palace handily a few days ago).   So winning the FA Cup could be a long shot.  But in this year of long-shot Leicester City in the lead in the Premier League with four games to go (but not a sure thing), clearly anything is possible.
