Now for the main event of the day (good timing Doncaster 🖕)

 

Hopefully Arsenal win simply because I don't like Chelsea.

Who do Celtic and Rangers support? I'll support the others!

If Pulisic stays at Chelsea, he’ll be better than Hazard.

No attempt to play the ball so surely a red?

I’m just amazed the VAR check took so long. One look in slow motion and it’s nailed on.

I just said this to the wife. I thought defenders had to make an attempt to get the ball else it's a red. 

Anyone ?

For clear goalscoring opportunities yes. And that to me was one.

Truly impressive dive/scream/delayed collapse from Giroud. Hopefully he recovers to score as I’ve got 7-1 on him and Aubameyang (sp) to both score.

Didn't think it was a penalty, I don't think he was fouling him once it went into the box. Do think it was a red card though.

Agreed. The guy was clean through.

Then it can't be a penalty.  But VAR decided otherwise.

Pulisic (21 years, 318 days) is the youngest scorer in a FA Final since Ronaldo (19 years, 106 days) in 2004.

At 31, Aubameyang is the second oldest Arsenal goalscorer in an FA Cup final. Quite a surprising stat that.

If Arsenal lose, Tottenham will progress directly to the Group stage of the Europa League.

Chelsea were great, scored and then went to shit? What on earth Lampard tweaked I don’t know. Been all Arsenal since and Azpi should be sent off.

Wembley on final day always looked great whereas Hampden had empty crisp packets and other rubbish blowing all over the pitch.

Chelsea have sort of slowed it down a bit, trying to establish a bit of control but there's no real spark or creativity. They haven't managed to stretch Arsenal, anything they get is now going to come through Jorginho or the Croatian boy playing a ball over the top from deep. They need to change it. Arsenal looking the more likely on the break.

Not convinced by David Luis’ idea of constantly passing the ball to Willy Caballero.

Chelsea should stick Barkley on, he'd be hard to pick up running from deep.

Watching this and enjoying it.  Don't want to be negative but how much are these guys who keep ballooning the ball over the bar being paid?

 

50  odd years ago, Pele, Willie Bauld and me always hit the target.
