Sheffield United won the 'Khaki' Final amid controversy as to whether
organized football should be continued in time of war. The Football Asso­ciation had decided that it was better to carry on
somehow, to provide relief for the workers and the warriors
In the League. Chelsea struggled for most of the season and finished only
one from the bottom. In the Cup, however, they stayed right through to
the last hurdle for the first time. It was fifty - five years before they were
to reach the Final again

Nobody had expected Chelsea to do well in the Cup. The players were
considered too small - Ford, at 5 ft 7 in, was the tallest of five forwards -
to have much chance in the hurly - burly of cup - tie football
On the grounds that it would otherwise interfere with war work, the Final
venue was switched from London to Old Trafford, Manchester
In a one - sided game Chelsea played a long way below their best Cup form
Molyneux should have prevented Simmons's opener for Sheffield ten
minutes before half - time. Yet Chelsea's defence did keep them in with a
chance until six minutes from the end. Then Fazackerley and Kitchen
added further goals to give Sheffield their third Cup victory
