All roads leading to Wembley as fans look ahead to final
"WEMMM-BER- LEEEEEE! Wemmm-ber- lee! Wemmm- ber- lee!"
It's official, we're going to Wembley!
Swans supporters everywhere have circled Sunday, February 24, in big red ink on their calendars after their heroes dispatched megabucks Chelsea over two nerve-jangling Capital One semi-final legs.
Members of the Jack Army only secretly dared to dream of reaching a first major cup final following the club's shock 2-nil smash-and-grab raid on Stamford Bridge in the away leg two weeks ago, as the Blues boast the best away record in the Premier League.

Oh ye of little faith!
The Swans have done it and the whole city and beyond is being painted white — and it has nothing to do with the snow!
One famous fan who is over the moon is Swansea singer song writer Mal Pope.
He said: "What a night. With the snow falling and the glow of the street lights it felt like there was something mystical in the air on the way to the game and how right — it was a magical night. We were marvellous.
"And it wasn't a case of luck, it was a case of magnificent play. The win says everything that is great about the club.
"We beat the European Champions by playing them at their own game."
Mal has made sure his diary is clear for the big final on February 24.
He added: "There's only one road and it leads to Wembley on the 24th.''
In Sketty Primary School today the pupils have replaced their school uniform with the white of the Swans to mark the win.
Head teacher Roger Rees said: "We are holding a Super Swans day today to celebrate getting to Wembley. The pupils can wear their Swans tops, I'm amazed by how many of our pupils have them."
David Phillips, Swansea Council leader, said: "This is a fantastic achievement for the Swans, their fans and the city.
"To be competing in a major cup final at Wembley for the first time in their history will be remembered for generations.
"I want to offer my congratulations to all those at the Swans who have worked so hard over so many years."
