lost in the 1984 FA Cup final but spectators are likely to be robbed of a
repeat this year due to another engagement.

The 72-year-old – who is honorary life president of the Premier

even those powers would be able to transport him from Wembley to
Copenhagen in time for his concert there on May 18.

Watford will play Manchester City, in what is their first FA Cup
final since losing to Everton in the 1984 showpiece, with the match

It prompted John – who has a stand named in his honour at their
Vicarage Road ground – to send Watford’s talismanic striker Troy Deeney

Zachary – the latter having signed for the Watford Academy team last
