Chelsea won the FA Cup for the fourth time in six seasons, beating Liverpool, 2-1, on a second-half goal by Didier Drogba on Saturday in London's Wembley Stadium. Drogba became the first player to score in four finals and helped the Blues survive a late onslaught by Liverpool. Ramires scored in the 11th minute to put Chelsea in front, capitalizing on blunders by Liverpool. In the 52d, Drogba scored his eighth goal in eight games at Wembley, sending the ball through defender Martin Skrtel's legs and into the net after a pass from Frank Lampard.

WEMBLEY, England - Manchester City ended its 35-year trophy drought Saturday, winning the FA Cup on Yaya Toure's second-half goal in a 1-0 victory over Stoke. Toure struck an unstoppable shot in the 74th minute after Mario Balotelli's deflected effort fell into his path. The Ivory Coast midfielder, a $38.9 million transfer from Barcelona last summer, was immediately mobbed by his teammates. Toure also scored the winning goal against Manchester United in the semifinal. City manager Roberto Mancini, along with jubilant captain Carlos Tevez, were among the last to leave the pitch after the victory gave City its first trophy since the 1976 League Cup and its fifth FA Cup win, 42 years after the last.

I WON'T exaggerate and claim that if the Union beats Seattle tonight at PPL Park and captures the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, it will be as big as if it makes the playoffs and wins the MLS championship. The MLS Cup is the ultimate goal of professional soccer in the United States. It is this sport's equivalent of winning the Super Bowl, World Series, Stanley Cup or NBA Finals. In comparison, winning the Open Cup would be like winning the . . . well, there is no real equivalent in any other U.S. professional sport.

MONEY CAN buy a lot of things, but apparently a guaranteed championship in professional sports is not one of them. The results of a survey conducted by sportsintelligence.com and ESPN The Magazine, released yesterday, showed that the soccer club Manchester City FC, of the English Premier League, is currently the highest-paying franchise in the world. While Man City's overall payroll of $202 million ranks behind the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers, the average player income of $8.1 million makes it the winner.

Former Eagles defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins , 32, signed a three-year contract worth $8 million with the New York Giants, NFL.com reported Sunday.

The documents vindicated efforts by the victims' families, who had spent 23 years demanding a full accounting of the events at Hillsborough stadium that killed fans of the Liverpool soccer team. Most of the victims were crushed and suffocated in a standing-only section after they were herded there by police.
