  1. Wenger has given Manchester the psychological edge, and I have to agree.

  2. Adam says:

    Chelsea in Penalties. Man Utd will probably score first, then Chelsea will put in a late equalizer.
    I rate Cech higher than van der Sar in a shootout.

  3. rob says:

    I’m hoping the Wembley arch comes crashing down on both squads, then Ronaldo, Drogba, Cole and Robben will have something to dive about.

    Emotional money on Chelsea, betting money on Man United. Its just all gone their way this term and I doubt this will be any different. Plus Chelsea have to either play Essien in the back which takes the teeth out of their midfield or play the enormously dissapointing Boularouz. WTF is up with this guy, after seeing the WC i was expecting a hard man and what’s come up is an inconsistent dousche!

  5. Joe says:

    Jesus, this has got to be the worst match I’ve seen since England-Macedonia (or arguably Chelsea-Man U in the prem a few weeks ago)… Could someone PLEASE tell the Chelsea players that you’re allowed to pass in another direction than backwards every once in a while?

  6. Joe says:

    Its that fiendish ‘bore them for 117 minutes until they let their guard down’ approach.

    this anti-chelsea feeling amongst ‘neutrals’ is so dull.
    football is about winning. man united, who have supposedly played ‘champagne football’ all season, were flying long balls over the top to rooney all game, with very little success. we were knocking it about and choked the life out of the game and stopped ronaldo, scholes, carrick and giggs from impacting the game for the most part.
    the boy rooney was making some blistering runs and was out-muscling essien and ferreira regularly but he didn’t have much support because of the work we were forcing man utd to do in the midfield.
    call us what you want, but just remember that you are just another mug who takes far too much notice of rupert murdoch and his band of merry bullshitters who have spent the last few years trying to tarnish our fine (and successful) club’s reputation at every opportunity.

    i fuckin hate chelsea and i thought that game was boring as, but i thought we did nothing worthy of a goal other than giggs effort which he should have stuck away, the ref got it right though it was a foul on cech. i thought the pre-game-first cup final at the new wembley-hype was to blame for the slow match and the pitch didn’t help much.
    i can’t believe we didn’t get the double though…especially as i had a £200 punt on it months ago.
    i don’t believe a single story i read about chelsea anymore.

    carefree :D well for me the time flew by until about 75 mins in – we played the stifling game, and anyone who reckons any other team could have beaten man u by playing freeflowing attacking footy is either a liar or ignorant. This was the only way to do it and, the chelsea goal was actually fantastic and would be in any game..
    tough luck for giggsy but theres no way it was either a goal or a penalty. ihave to especially laugh at the idea fergie reckons it was a “cast iron” penalty – even giggs only felt a light tough from essien..
    anyways, no bus parade so boo :(

    why the fuck if think that chelsea fans are most stupid fans all over the world ? they call the shit game a beautiful one, they always repeat after jm how good they are, and why their losses are soooo unfair.
    and i think it is possible to BEAT anyone with acutally more than one random goal after 117 minutes of a longball-on-a-one-against-four striker

  13. GP says:

    I maybe biased, but whenever I see Chelsea in action I always think they’re a cheat. The kind of game they play is definitely not football. Same goes for Liverpool. No doubt the most entertaining football belongs to Man Utd and Arsenal…

    such morons.
    stop reading the papers and think for yourselves.
    if that FA CUP FINAL WINNING GOAL (take note gooners) was a one two between henry and fabregas rather than drogba and lampard it would be hailed as a beautiful piece of flowing one touch football….but when chelsea do it, it is boring cheating….
    open your eyes.

  15. Joe says:

    Actually, I quite prefer watching Spurs to Man U or Arsenal, Man U don’t have a Berbatov and Arsenal lack a Lennon.

    ITS ABOUT THE WHOLE FUCKING BORING MATCH, (which both man u and arsenal dont ussualy play, however chelsea does). not the 117` minute though

  17. Guernsey Cow says:

    The goal was quite nice, good goal and well worked. Took a while to come, game was pretty boring and dull but it gives you something to talk about to your mates down the pub.
    And this is probably the biggest debate i have ever seen on the site so it certainly sparked conversation amongst you all.
    As for entertaining teams, Spurs (much as i hate them) are quality to watch they have everything needed for an entertaining match good strikers, Berbatov 2nd best in the prem and a pretty good midfield going forward coupled with a shocking defence (should be good but aren’t) leads to all sorts of goals and rediculours score lines. 4-3 common play in Spurs games. Again same applies to West Ham.

  18. Joe says:

    I think the comical CB’s (apart from the great yet frustratingly injury-prone Ledley King) are one of the reasons Spurs are entertaining. I can spend 90 minutes rolling on the floor with laughter if Michael Dawson and Anthony Gardner lay…

    If only spurs could get back Dean Richards and Timothy Atouba along with Anthony Gardner they would have a defensive partnership ready to rival Tightarse Bramble. that would be hilarious i love watching Spurs games if only to laugh at my Tottenham supporting mates. :D

  21. Joe says:

    Same, although I should probably keep quiet as my own team’s defensive partnership consists of Zat Knight (Bat Shite is just as easy and yet just as deserved a nickname as Shitus Shambles) and Ian ‘Did he do that on purpose?’ Pearce… God help us next season
