Fa cup final
« on: August 01, 2020, 06:01:08 PM »
Anyone watching, it’s currently 1 all. How was that not a red card leading up to the penalty, I thought it  was only a yellow if there was intent to play the ball, which there clearly wasn’t

Key criterion was whether there was another defender to cover.  There was.  (I really disliked Arteta's waving an imaginary card. Diminishes him. )

Well knock me down with a feather. Why do these prima donnas go down so easily from the lightest of touches. Why do refs get suckered into giving these pens. Mitro gets grappled & man handled every game & rarely gets the decision.

Blimey I have just had my tea and sat down for a quick peruse and a brew and did’nt know it was on. Clearly I am way out of touch with the world or my brain has switched off following the trauma of the two games I did watch this week.

After 70 minutes...  Pulisic had a bit of brilliance in the first half...

It's been Arsenal ever since.

The one thing Fulham will have to figure out next year is how do we handle teams that have more pace than us.   Arsenal literally let Chelsea have all the ball...pass it around...  and waited to hit them on the break.   Chelsea's back line is incredibly slow, and it's players that aren't straight distance slow, don't have any agility at all.


Frank Lampart hasn't done anything to put his stamp on the game.


Congrats AFTV.

Never a red card, the Arsenal diving b****rs trod on the Chelsea players foot. Why didn't VAR have a look at it?

Because it was a yellow card, they don’t look at yellows, he only got the red because it was 2 yellows, even so there was not even a foul let alone a card.

Delighted for the Arse. Did anyone seriously want Chelskum to get it?

Seriously, a very watchable game and,although I thought the sending off was harsh, it was probably
Y the right result.
