      I recall Liverpool having the same problem too. Can you fathom that one out.  ;D

      Truth is I don't really know.  :-\ Might of made it as a manager if I did.  :D

      I can indeed! Teams playing two lines of defence while snatching us on the break despite dominating that's what!

      I'm not so sure, I agree that Man Utd are good in finals but so are Chelsea, plenty of experience in both sides. If Chelsea play how they were when they were chasing us for 4th spot then I fancy them to win.
      It should be an interesting game but one where I'd love both sides to lose.

      Depends how you look at it. If you analyse United,Chavs & Mourhino then you'd definitely say Mourhino has the edge.  ;D

      One of the worse cup finals I can remember, two teams that basically just cancelled each other out, won late on with a winner by Cuntandahalf and sh*t attempt at a save by Nintendo boy!!

       Mourhino does have a phenomenal record in Cup finals. Since lifting UEFA Cup back in 2003 he has made 14 finals winning 12 of them.

      Think that answers based on.  :f_tongueincheek:

      His Porto team that beat Celtic in Sevilla is one of the most snide teams I've seen play in a final.

      This will be the least watched FA cup in some time, not because of something else tomorrow will be any more interesting, but because United have parked the bus all season and people got bored of watching United. This is a problem for United because it means if United draws less ratings, next season they won't be Sky's number one pick anymore. Less TV revenue. I hope United win though, last thing I want is Mourinho to go. Mourinho will be the undoing of United eventually.

      Mourinho doesn't have the edge. He would flopp at most teams. He makes a living off going to rich teams and buying success. He won the champions league with Porto, which was quite good... but other than this he can't attribute much other than buying success. Mourinho will financially ruin United soon. Look at Sanchez? High wages and bog standard for United.

      Why do the TalkSport comms talk up the pageantry and spectacle of the Cup final and then either talk over it or not have their sound set up to allow the listener to actually hear it.

      "Abide With Me" ??? - Apparently someone sang it.

      "God Save The Queen" - I think that's the melody I could faintly hear.

      Tribute to Ray Wilkins? Nope, didn't hear that one either.

      I take it (I hope) there are other radio comms available in UK?

      oh wait - it's not blacked out over here on 5 Live. Excellent.

      I'll be reading about LFC the whole time, mind.

      its one of those games where its so difficult to say who you want to win.
      However on this occasion I have to remember this is UTD coupled to Maureen so yes I want UTD to get hammered.

      All the more weird when you consider he gave Real that penalty in the last minute against Juventus.

      Oh and despite having to endure Man Utd play football it's a godsend compared to the BBC's promo for this match.

      Person who produced and commissioned this should be shot. Embarrassing most of all for the poor busker rapper who now thinks he has talent.

      It only would have been acceptable if the conductor had pointed at the guy toward the end and called for security.

      Looking on twitter apparently he calls himself 'MC Haribo'. Seriously.

      All of those musicians are thinking 'I did not go to the Royal Academy of Music for this'.

      Rashford kicked it straight at the keeper, then took a dodgy corner. I think they need to change him to have a chance.
