[Archived] FA Cup 2017/18

Recommended Posts

Sickens me watching spurs. We used to beat them regularly and finish above them, now they play Real Madrid. London money. Absolute Chokers though. When was the last time they won anything?

When we played them at Cardiff in the league cup final my mate was at uni there at the time and it became apparent rovers were allocated all the crap bars spurs all the good ones. So we spent almost all our time with spurs fans friendly enough but so very arrogant. Their attitude was how nice it was for us to have a day out but no question of us winning.

At the time I was telling them we were above them in the league, had a better team than them and were 100% going to win (wasn’t as convinced as I was coming across but felt I had to say it). Well the rest is history.

That said miles better than the arsenal fans who are the most miserable sods ever met. Fair dos beat us 3-0 in the semi at Cardiff but such a joyless bunch

They're all North London Geordies with a chip on each shoulder.

Tottenham Chokers FC. They have lost the last eight FA Cup semi finals that they have played in.

Let their media friends spin that one.

Matched only by the choker of a Referee, too s-hit scared to send Valencia off.

Now that tackle was an assault with intent in any era.

Ali and Kane were seriously awol from that game. Big game bottlers. The worst Spurs team effort I've seen all season. Ali and Dier put nasty, sneaky and deliberate kicks to Jesse L's achilles. Damm shame that Manure won, may give the Final a miss.

Aye and old red nose is at most of their games and refs still bow down to his influence.

I can see Potty moving on from Spurs in a year or so.

So another season goes by without Pochettino winning anything. Finishing 4th is success for Spurs whilst for Wenger at Arsenal it was labelled as failure.

That 'has been' Mourinho reaches another cup final. I wouldn't bet against him winning his 4th piece of silverware in 2 years, and he looks likely to lead United to their highest finish since Ferguson retired.

Media driven agendas once again. Pochettino and Klopp the best things since sliced bread yet barring an unlikely Champions League triumph have won nothing between them in 7 years at their clubs whilst Mourinho and Wenger get stick from all corners yet are still winning trophies.

United and Arsenal have won leagues much more recently than spurs or Liverpool, hence the difference in expectations. 

The main problem with mourinho is that he plays muck football and is constantly prickly with the media. So comes across as a git.

Hilarious as that would be, I doubt it.

Only Man United in this country, I suspect.

Just something about the interview he did on Saturday! 

...and yes, it would be absolutely hilarious. Sol Campbell x100.

Man Utd Chelsea AGAIN, yawn.

Can’t remember the exact figures, but I read a stat that listed a couple of dozen teams who won the Cup from 1946 till the mid 70s. 

The last 20 years has seen one of Arsenal, Chelsea or Man Utd win 15 of them, with Liverpool winning 2 and Man City with another.

The modern game in a nutshell.

Phil Jones is abysmal, laughably bad when up against good players, he’s not progressed since he left Rovers for me even at the biggest club in the world

BBC described it as a "trademark desperate lunge".

He's almost good enough for England. 🙄

Phil Jones is abysmal he should now be approaching the peak of his career but he is a worse player now than he was 8 years ago. How Southgate has picked him ahead of Smalling is beyond me.

Clear penalty to Chelsea not given even with VAR

Disagree, its not a 100% error not to give the penalty, im not convinced it is, looks too close, either way theres an element of doubt and debate therefore it shouldnt go to VAR.

THE worst Utd side in decade's...nothing but a team full of overpaid Billy big Bollock individuals.

Haven't seen a decent Cup Final in years,they have totally devalued the whole occasion.

I noticed at the end of the game rashford sat on the grass clearly gutted after the whistle as well as some glum faces picking up there losers medals whilst Pogba hugged , laughed and smiled with the Chelsea players before strutting for his losers medal. I can imagine him having a shower and jumping into his Bentley and off out forgetting he had even just been involved in a game. I hate pricks like Pogba. Thoughts ?

Pogba?.....a shining example for all to see of so many of your modern day footballers.

So many Millions in his Bank account he doesn't give a flying @#/?.His contribution to that game was pathetic.

Light blue hair when playing against City for United. He’s on an ego trip.

Shame our so called top teams prefer spending obscene amounts of cash on blokes of his ilk rather than investing in growing their own talent. Maybe Brexit will enable a cap on overseas players to be reintroduced. Doubt it though. Football has sold its souls and players like Pogba are the result.
