      Sad really.

      Obviously the likes of 86 88 89 when we were there was the biz but even say 87 Coventry v Spurs or even the Everton utd 85 final the build up was class, it just felt huge

      Yeah it really was a memorable event and it really was a cup final you never wanted to miss.
      As for the game I really can’t see anything but a Chelsea win unfortunately.

      And hear. Listening to it on radio as it is pay only on TV over here.

      Question for anyone: The BBC comm just mentioned the  managers and he referred to Brendan Rogers as "The Northern Irishman" and Thomas Tuchel as "The Barbarian." ?

      Is that a standard reference in UK for a German? Don't recall hearing that before.

      Is that how fans of other clubs feel also? Why do you suppose this has changed?

      LOL. Surely you are right.

      I fear I'm becoming the 85-year old Grandpa who can't hear or remember anything correctly, about 30 years too early.

      I didn't know who the comms are but I guess it's Jenas keeps talking about Gareth Southgate and the Euros.

      I can’t speak for other fans Robby but  for me it really was a big deal ,& I imagine footie fans around my age 53 & up do feel the same way,
      Why has it changed? I think the kick off time moving from 3 o’clock to 5.10 didn’t help,the focus moving away from the English cups to the money driven European trophies certainly didn’t help.look at how heavily promoted the European trophies are and even the uefa cup started losing its appeal a while ago ( not to me by the way)
      I still love the F.A cup and league cup & have yet to miss a final & even at 53 I often watch the match  muted & have the local radio  on listening .

      Aye. The Fa cup just has such little relevance now it seems.
      Maybe if they offered a champions league place to the winners it would get everyone interested again.
      You used to have the cameras following the coaches to the stadium and the interviews with the players beforehand and it was like a festival.
      Nowadays it feels like how the charity shield used to feel. Very diluted.
      Money takes I guess.

      Would love to have Youri here. A much more of a goal threat than Gini. Would cost a bomb though and probably down the priority list.

      Beautiful strike, love it when the ball hardly moves in the air like that. Like Salah against Kepa

      it was quite emotional to see players celebrate with fans I think its a reflection of just what has been missing in football even more so at Anfield.

      Seeing the stadium even a quarter full (or 100% capacity if you are a Man City fan) is so great.
