      Not looking forward to this at the moment.

      Hoping to hear good news on Mo and Darwin. If we don't Chelsea go into this somehow as holding all the cards.

      By the time of KO Chelsea may have gone from 4/1 outsiders down to odds on favourites such is the changing dynamic of the squads in the last time we faced them.

      Chelsea seem to have found themselves in the last few weeks and with a full squad to choose from they'll be smelling blood and bang up for this.

      Unfortunately no chance of mo and darwin starting.. very much doubt they will make bench. Going to be the same squad to choose from.

      Nah..bunch of southern poseurs, with a smattering of footballing mercenaries. If ever a team played for the wallet rather than the shirt..it is Chelsea.

      Anyone else thinking that NOT playing Mo & Darwin Vs Luton is a possible ruse to trip up the Chavs on Sunday, many assuming neither will feature in the final, thinking they can’t be fit, and that maybe Poch would set up thinking the same, pie in the sky maybe, but who knows, maybe Jürgen is playing the joker here ??

      I suspect both will feature at some point, no one knows for sure obviously but I’m kinda glad no one knows including inquisitive journo’s, I seen enough evidence in that second half V Luton to convince me that we as a group are hungrier than anyone else and WILL Want it more, including the title, the Europa & the FA cup, the players want to give Jürgen the best send off possible and a massive thanks to what he has done for their collective careers,
      So what better way is there to show him how appreciative they all are of why they’ll give absolutely everything for him in his final moments as manager??

      My attempt at humour didn't quite come off, that's on me for not reading the room.

      Give me a chance though, I'm still relatively new around these parts!!

      I'm expecting a close final similar to the last 2 that played out when we faced these, nonetheless one where I think we have enough still to come through.

      Yeah I know..was only winding yer up. Could well be an extra time thing. I've gone for the ever popular 3-1. Even if we put out similar to V Luton, we could still turn them over.

      Just love taking on these London mobs. Luton manager came across as genuine.Not like that counterfeit manager Pochettino.

      Their keeper in the 2022 final came off his line about 5 times as we beat the 11-10 on penalties. Don't want a repeat of that for sure. Kelly scored a great pen as well.

      If there's any doubts about Salah, Nunez or Dom then leave them at home. We need to learn from our mistakes in recent weeks and not rush them back again too quickly.

      Still plenty to play for after Sunday.

      I agree, can't play with fire regards these lads. Especially with hammy issues. I'm not sure what the issue is with Nunez? I think he may be the most likely to return personally. Any of the 3 would be a massive bonus.

      I'm that one mate.
      I quite believe JK keep Mo and Darwin for the trophy.
      JK surely believed he can mastermind our boys to fight against Luton.
      I'm confident one or both Mo and Darwin will play vs Chelsea.

      F**k it.

      Like Harvey but had a change of heart, not sure he's ready to start a game this big yet and given he's looked better coming from the bench.......Diaz also looks a whole lot better centrally so although there's a 99% chance this doesn't happen it wouldn't be a bad option.

      Actually even better;

      What is good is that for the remaining campaign they will be there and maybe on the bench for Sunday.

      Dominik is closest to the team. From the pictures of today, Darwin and Salah is around the fit squad.
