FA Cup Final

Used to love the FA cup final. I find this as boring as could be. I could count the number of genuine and adventurous examples of individual skills on one hand. 

Oh well there is obamayang. Brilliant!

Refereeing in this game is beyond a joke.  Oh, and Xhaka is a horrible *****.

I didn't agree with the "diving" comments on here earlier but that was  blatant cheating by Arsenal and a ridiculous 2nd yellow.

What is the point in VAR if they aren't going to overturn that?

Terrible decision.  Just ruins the game.  At worst it was an unintentional foul.

VAR will disallow a goal if a players toenail is offside but it won’t overrule blatant cheating?

 

Insane.

May or may not have been but the ref made his mind up in an instant despite it looking close. Isn’t that what VAR is for?

Remember all the hoo-ha in 1985 when Kevin Moran was the first man to be sent off in the FA Cup final, and there was a big debate as to whether he’d get a medal or not?

Wanted Chelsea to win purely so Wolves would be guaranteed another crack at Europe. Want them to claw it back after that red now though, cheating arsenal *******s

Levels out after the pen. No attempt to play the ball,  Chelsea got a bonus half hour with 11.

VAR did look at it. Not sure what you wanted the ref to do other than let play continue and leave VAR to do its job?

In an ideal world he’d send off the whole Arsenal team for being Arsenal. Then refuse to give Chelsea the win, for being Chelsea. 
Fairly unlikely outcome though.

And then take pity on Spurs for being serial failures and hand the trophy to them?

Arsenal deserved to win it, they were the better team it's just a shame the ref ruined it with that red. 

 

I like Lampard but he should have changed it early second half, they didn't lay a glove on Arsenal 2nd half.

Mikel Arteta is the first person in Arsenal’s history to win the FA Cup as club captain and as manager.

Should have handed the the goons the cup after they scored their second the referee weren’t going to let Chelsea back into the game after that.

Granted but the Europa League has an unusually strong field remaining with the likes of Inter, Man U, Leverkusen still potentially in wait. Would like to see them do it though

Arsenal are becoming FA cup specialists.

4 wins in the last 7 years and 7 wins this decade.

 

Maybe just as well for them as it's becoming their only route into Europe!

there seemed to be a change in their tactics in the first half when the momentum shifted from chelsea to arsenal. They stopped hitting balls to giroud who was holding it up and linking play with the players out wide. if they went back to doing that it might have pushed arsenal back a bit

Shame they didn't have VAR for the Sevco ,Sheep game. Kent was head and shoulders offside and the linesman( will never call them assistant refs ) was feet ahead of play and couldn't tell. Sevco getting the benefit of a dodgy decision? Surely not.

Ha ha I doubt that. Probably more accurate to say he would have got even more wrong than Taylor (as hard as that might appear).
