ALAN PARDEW has congratulated his good friend Phil Parkinson after Bradford City's shock triumph at Chelsea in the FA Cup. The Bantams produced one of the great cup giantkillings with a 4-2 win at Stamford Bridge to progress to the last 16 of the competition, knocking out Jose Mourinho's men, who currently sit top of the Premier League. And Pardew, who himself guided his Eagles side to a 3-2 win at Premier League high fliers Southampton, said he was delighted for his friend Parkinson. "That is what the cup is all about," he said. "I am delighted for my friend Phil and I will have to give him a call to find out just how he did that."
