Not really fussed who wins tbh. At a stretch I might root for Arsenal because the media love-in for Fat Frank will be unbearable.

Though all I want really are handbags, cards, comical goals, ideally topped off with a penalty shoot out.

I have a sick relative who is poorly and a Chelsea fan so at at a stretch, Chelsea, to make his day. Plenty of goals and talking points please.

I want AFTV meltdown but I welcome Frank getting ridiculed.

I want a Chelsea win as

1) Arsenal are 1 FA Cup ahead of us

2) I want Wolves in the Europa next season - don't want their entire focus on catching us in the league :nervous:

3) AFTV

Chelsea win please.

Compound Arsenal's miserable season, increases the chance of Aubameyang fecking off.

This must be the elite mentality I've heard mentioned around here quite a few times.

Nah dont think hes going anywhere no matter what the papers say. Cares more about a payday these days, and no big club are going to offer the money and wages except maybe China.

Point number 1 is very true and it needs to stop so we can catch them.

I dislike formations with 5 at the back.
When fullbacks are gash playing in a 4 makes a lot of sense. Guess Conte made it fashionable again, really works much better on left side usually, got cover for when Alonso loses position and he's actually decent going forward.

Don't know why Luiz gets all the hate, we conceded 36 goals a season on average 3 seasons prior with him key part of our defence and he's great as CB in a 5. One of best CB passers from deep I've ever seen.

Looks like she got lost on the way to the pitch and came out on the roof. Getting on with it like a true pro, mind.

I'm sure that there are ways of making it work and no doubt both Lampard and Arteta will have drilled their players into knowing how to play this formation. As you say, the fullbacks are important in this system. Just not my cup of tea. Hoping for a good game for the neutral and can't really call it either way.

May the best team win and no VAR crap please. FA cup trophy will be a good start for either managers as I like them both.

Random choir people all dressed the same standing motionless in the crowd looked like something out of a horror movie.

FA Cup Final with the national anthem.

Shame there's only 3 British players between the two teams.

Shameful.
