From the Boardroom - David Sullivan

Joint-Chairman David Sullivan reflects on the 1-1 draw with Manchester United and looks ahead to a big London derby against Chelsea

It shows how far we have come to feel let down by a late goal and only a draw at old Trafford.

What more can I say about Dimitri Payet. It was another outstanding piece of skill to execute that type of free-kick and it is not the first time we have seen him produce something like that.

He gave one of the best keepers in Europe in David de Gea absolutely no chance with his curling effort and it once again shows why he is rated so highly by everyone at the Club.

Our 9000 supporters who went up to Manchester were magnificent and it could have been 20,000 if we could have got the tickets.

We will be pricing the replay at home far cheaper than the away game even though its the quarter final of the Cup.

It was disappointing that we could not hold onto the lead, but there is still everything to play for and it promises to be another special night under the lights.

It will be the last ever cup tie to be played at the Boleyn Ground and I know our fans will make it an evening to remember.

Maybe we should have scored more with the chances we had, but nobody scores all the time.

We now switch our attentions back to the Premier League and a big London derby against Chelsea on Saturday.

Despite their recent results in the cup competitions, it is still a very, very hard game.

We are 9/2 to win and the bookies only give us a 38% chance of getting anything out of the game, but I don't feel we will come away empty handed.

We have a good record against the London clubs this season and I hope that will continue at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
