16:45 Kick off



Feels Deja Vu like from a few months ago. But will it end up the same way?

It will. Chelsea have been poor of late barring a couple of results.

Bluecafe for a couple of hours.

Everyone go and get that dusty old Lukaku shirt from your wardrobe and give the man your love today.
Oh yeah, well check out this jinx…4-0 Chelsea!

This place has been Bluecafe for a while. If it’s not you it’s City. Anything to stop the old enemy.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

The good people of Redcafe know you must be stopped.
You’d think the devil worshippers would be the bad guys.

@duffer @WeePat @TheMagicFoolBus what’re your thoughts on the team Tommy Tuch’s should pick? You’ve given us three very difficult games this season and been somewhat unfortunate at times. I don’t think we like playing against a back three and wing backs.

Are Kovacic and Kante likely to play?

Chelsea (the saviours of football) fan.

Kova is injured thanks to the butcher Dan James.

Mendy, Christensen, Silva, Rudi, James, Alonso, Jorgi, Kante, Mount, Werner, Havertz.

But seeing Lukaku start wouldn't shock or dissapoint me.

The FA has devalued the FA Cup by placing it before the League has even finished.

Can't look past Liverpool unfortunately, they've got the extra days rest and played with 12 men seemingly most of the season. Get your money on zero yellow cards again for them today? Our new PE ownership doesn't exactly inspire me with confidence..., may as well enjoy the final anyway.

Anyone remember when the Cup final coverage would start about 9 am all the way through to kick off?

I miss those days

It's a 16:45 kick off and the coverage starts at midday so still nearly 5 hours of build up on BBC one.
This is why I don’t get the whole, useless trophy nonsense with the United fanbase. I’m a bit too old to stay in & watch it all but I can still remember how it was to watch the coach driving in , then the players on the pitch etc.

I’d love for United to be involved in days like this again.

I only want to know if Chelsea have won after the final whistle. Otherwise, couldn't give a shit.

Played before the final round of league fixtures. Disappointing. Is this the first time in a while?

It can't be at CL final weekend nor after it, so this weekend is the only chance.

The winter break that everyone used to chirp on about like it was the best thing ever has caused this fixture to be played in the penultimate gameweek.

I'm not sure I could be any less interested in the game (other than to hope, probably in vain) that Liverpool get beaten. A controversial goal would be the funniest...

Why couldn't it be played after the season finished? It's a one-off game.
Can't be played on the same day as the Champions League final which is the Saturday after the league ends now so it would have to be the Saturday after which is 2 weeks after the season ends.
