    I remember when my team were interested in tin pot trophies like the FA Cup! Only joking, lads, before someone jumps down my throat! Excellent game, ruined by a very harsh red.

    Really liked the performance of Mount, esp first half, but think Arsenal worth their lead.

    Never seen more decisions go in favour of a team than arsenal have got today. Be fuming if I were a Chelsea fan.

    Chelsea should feel very hard done by. Although they were fucking rubbish, but was 12 vs 10.

    Congrats to Arsenal and Stevo.

    Not Chelsea’s day today for all sorts of reasons not much went for us.

    Feel for Pedro he’s a Roma player from tomorrow too. Hope it’s not too serious.

    The red was harsh but otherwise I disagree
    Just happy we won
    Decent game
    Very unlucky on injuries and a harsh red but still think we deserved the win …. just !

    Question
    If a foul starts outside the area but continues inside is it a penalty? I think so.
    Thought it was a harsh red. Made a difference.
    Chelsea not enough upfront today.

    Where did Jorginho get that haircut???

    Congrats to Arsenal and Arteta (Pep rubbed off) Comiserations to Chelsea.

    Aubameyang’s Top Class. I’ve been impressed with Arteta – very classy and I do see a bit of Pep in him in how he implements his Team to play in the way they press the opposition high up the pitch. We were living proof of that when we played a few weeks back at the Emirates.

    I think Coutinho would be a Great Fit, but Arteta does need a few signings of his own.

    Above all, he needs time, same as Lampard too. Good young Manager coming through and actually Allowed Time and Patience – Ole in this Bracket.

    Need more steel and much better defence
    Attack is fine
    Plenty of options
    Sort defence and we will be a decent team

    Just looking at the now dominance of the top six clubs in the FA Cup. Since 1990, the top six have won the FA Cup:

    Arsenal: 9 times
    Chelsea: 7 times
    Man Utd: 6 times
    Liverpool: 3 times
    Man City: 2 times
    Spurs: 1 time

    So out of the 31 seasons, 28 of them were won by the top six.

    A 10 year old could have done a better job than that ref, all our expectations came true

    Mikus this is exactly what i think of when people say the big teams don’t respect the Cup anymore, yet one of them nearly always ends up winning it.

    They do Threeps, but then it also demonstrates how far the top six have drifted away from the other clubs.

    Not quite in the same robbing class as Ovredo but the referee was rubbish and someone did pre warn what may happen on here. He certainly took centre stage in a showpiece footballing event and ruined it. Arsenal were overall the better team and deserved their win. Congratulations Steveo.

    You had one job Russian Money Boyz, and now Wolves don’t get EL footy and the Mighty Spuds have to play 3 extra games in the EL… and you lot wonder why nobody likes you?? It’s not just because you lot forced the creation of FFP rules you know… there are many other factors as to why Stamford Bridge is the twin-city to Malmo!

    Even worse, go and stand in the corner (if you lot manage to stay on your feet that long!) and write “We only had one job!” six billion times…

    (You sure about that? Pretty sure it’s all “COVOID” affected one-legged ties with winner-winner chicken dinner!!)

    Chucky, yep you’re right they are one legged games with home or away decided by the draw but it’s still funny.😊

    Those officials should be investigated and duly charged, I cannot believe anyone can be biased and crooked without having something to gain by it. Even the commentators who normally never critisize officials no matter how bad they are couldn’t keep quiet this time, that’s how bad they were and unfortunately in this case it was all against blue. I do admit we have one of the worst defences but that helping hand arsenal got from those officials was massive, no point in trying to justify them just read the papers this morning.
