We're not big favorites. Barely favorites at all.
Lawrenson predicts Chelsea 1-0 win.
Would the mods ever consider having a positive and a negative Match Day thread?
We're gonna do them 3-1. Sanchez, Lingard & Rashford to score for United and Giroud for Chelsea.
You saw it here first.
Gone for 3-0, but with just under 17 hours to go to kick-off just can't get up for it. Be glad when the season is over.
Agreed, I’m not confident at all. The lack of momentum from us I think is the root cause of that, but Chelsea’s inconsistency doesn’t seem to register with me at all. I can only see the negatives happening: Hazard deciding to turn-up and thus being the best player on the pitch by a mile, Kante getting away with foul after foul whilst Oliver books Herrera the second he looks in Hazard’s direction, Giroud scoring as he always fecking does, maybe even Morata proving he’s not a complete waste of space, etc.
It’s starting to feel like a cup final all right
Very flat for a final in here, many red's feel the same I know. The FA cup has lost its prestige but I still love the trophy. Some of my early memories as a kid and United are from it. Remember watching us beating Chelsea 4.0 with my brother at his friend. The build up was for hours years ago and it was a big deal, it doesn't seem like it now but it was a big deal in the 90's. I really want to win it. I'm glad we have Champion's league next year but it's always more memorable winning trophies. In ten or twenty years time, we want be chatting about getting top 4. You always remember trophies, let's hope United are up for it tomorrow and beat these rent boys.

I predicted Romero will start, so wrong this time

Oliver is another concern. You just know he'll find someway to be the centre of attention. Herrera if he plays will have to be on his best behaviour. We know Hazard likes the grass and Chelsea will look to take advantage of this. I think we will be in trouble if Chelsea decide to sit back and defend. We simply have no clue when facing teams who defend and almost all our goals this season against big teams came from either defensive errors or players being caught upfield and us taking advantage of the spaces. How Chelsea approach this game will decide the game imo. If they play an open game like City did in 2nd half at Etihad, like Spurs did, like Liverpool we will have too much for them. If they sit back and defend I think they will have a big chance of winning.
Anyone else struggling to get up for this one?
We are favourites going into this game,yeah,we"ve been ponderous and uninspiring over the last few weeks,but Chelsea have been worse...There's a reason why we finished 11 points(plus a vastly superior GD) over them....I think we will win 2-0...
Does anyone have the 2016 Final to download?
Ive realized I have all our finals on a hard drive but missing the last few.
Also crazy stat;
we've only won the FA Cup twice since the treble winning season.
It's got the feels of Wednesday's Europa cup final. I'll be more excited by tomorrow (hoping Utd lose obviously), but with Jose's ridiculous record in finals I don't see anything other than a 1-0 dour encounter. Some Chelsea fight to claw their way back, probably hitting the post five times.
Nil nil after 120 mins. No shots on target from either team. United win 1-0 on pens.
Martial is tearing them apart today , 4-1
Just woke up - can’t grt back to sleep. Buzzing for this!
Stupidly booked a trip to Anglesey with my girlfriend today, I forgot about the cup final when I did haha.
Looks like I’ll be watching it in a pub in Wales somewhere then!
Any suggestions for a decent pub near Llanfigael?
She wore, she wore, she wore a scarlet ribbon....................
Good to see Oliver being rewarded with this match.
Of course there's white text. He's a Cnut.
Very excited for this. Hope Lukaku is ready. Herrera MOM with a goal in 3-1 win is my prediction.
Didn't feel this until I woke up, woke up my kid too so she'd play FIFA with me
2-0 will do, Herrera finding his form from last season's win in the league
Our fixtures with Chelsea are never easy, id have it 50/50. Would love us to grab the FA Cup though
As long as we win. I don’t give a feck.
With how we’ve played in the final 3 games, I can’t see us ripping Chelsea apart. Likewise, I can’t see them doing that to us. I think it’ll be tight and boring. As I say, as long as we win, I’m happy.
How can you forget? You must be one of those half&half scarf footie fans.
My feeling for this game: United will create more and better chances. But Chelsea will be more lucky.
Not me, I can't wait now. I just want a positive result as seeing the lads with another trophy is the perfect way to send off the season.
Chelsea will start strongly because they know we'll be cautious at first, but we'll grow into the game similar to the semi against spurs.
I think we have a little bit more than Chelsea for the big game, ans so predicting us to to win 1:0. But its a one off final at wembley and anything can happen. Hope the game isn't decided controversially, cause that will spoil it.
Chelsea have been really poor last few games, we should twat them
Ha I assure you I’m not. I’m from Manchester and live about 2 miles from the stadium.
I booked it about 2 months ago before we even knew we were anywhere near the final. I didn’t think to check what weekend it was on at the time.
I think we'll be ok if Hazard doesn't decide to turn it on.
We win 2-1
I’ll be very suprised if Rashford or Martial start. I reckon Jose goes with
Going to be in Kuala Lumpur when the match kicks off, with an early morning flight to Heathrow. Does Sky Go app work in Malaysia?
I sincerely hope Bakayoko starts.
Nope , its the FA Cup Final , still a massive game for me, dont care what anybody says , worlds oldest club competition.
100 % disagree, every United fan I know is up for this , not a single one says the same has you.
Well, I just can't bear the thought of losing. That would be such a ruddy downer! And even those who say they can't 'get up' for this cup will feel shite afterwards that is for sure. I'm hoping that it will be an exciting final with United coming out on top and not a boring, dull, laborious game that ends 0 - 0 after extra time with United going out on penalties!
Come on United......
Can't believe there's people saying they aren't bothered by the FA Cup
Perhaps it doesn't seem as illustrious to our international fans?
Don't worry guys, I will have 100% success. One game, one trophy! Can it start already?
The FA Cup was always held in high esteem in England, so YES it is important to try our best to win it.
Feeling nervous... Too early for beers though, so I'm going for a walk to the store and not by car.
That miserable scouse git would say anything to rubbish MU.
It will be a tough game, could go anyway. Olivier giroud and Pedro are just as dangerous as
Hazard on their day. We will need Pogba and the rest to perform at their best. We have a better back line than theirs so hope we prevail.
