FA cup


 Share

Recommended Posts

The FA have ruined what used to be the most important cup in the world. Other games playing on the same day FFS. Munich’s started the rot when they pulled out for a Micky Mouse domestic World Cup.

hope Leicester win it but it’s now only a little better than the League Cup.

most fans don’t give a shit about the Champions League but making the winner an automatic entry to the Champions League would boost the FA Cup plus move the semi finals away from Wembley

Could be a tremendous season for Chelsea hope they win both cups especially the CL

Completely agree.

I was just wondering what hotel the teams are staying at, will we follow the team coach to Wembley, why last night's 'Question of Sport' wasn't based on the two finalists. What side was 'Cup-Final It's a Knockout' on ?

I do hope Leicester win it because you can imagine it will mean something to the team, the club and the fans. Chelsea will just chuck it on the pile like an unwanted Christmas present.

Used to be the biggest match of the season... I remember going to the corner shop at half time and the world was totally quiet... no one out and about, all indoors watching the Cup Final.

Leicester for me

Much diminished day.  Didn't realise it was cup final day until 30 minutes ago.

Grandstand use to be along the lines of:

11:15 Team hotels

12:00. It's a Cup Final Knockout and/or Question of Sport

13:00  Follow the team coaches to Wembley by helicopter

14:30 Community singing/Abide with me.

15:00. A game of football

17:15 Dr Who

Cracking day.

Tried to force a bit of interest by having a small bet on Leicester 3-1 or 3-2,  fuck Chelsea as one of the "super league ", but not that bothered.

Shame, as i'm another who used to love all the build up & game on cup final day.

There is an eleven hour piece on the BBC iPlayer/website running until the match called "The FA Cup Channel".

Superb to have some supporters in the stadium - another step towards normality - not really arsed who wins as long as it's a decent game....

Hoping for a Leicester win, with a career-ending injury for Jonny Evans

Unless my TV is faulty, there were fairly loud boos for the taking of the knee.

Think you’re right about that.
