    If City end up with only the league cup, by the time the FA Cup comes around Pep will be in full on wide eyed tantrum mode on the sidelines.

    It's a pity Alan Hardaker isn't around to set the fixtures - good article in When Saturday Comes on how Leeds had to play 15 games in 46 days, including an FA Cup Final and replay, an FA Cup Semi Final with 2 replays, 2 European Cup semi finals and one Quarter Final, as well as 7 league matches as they challenged for the title.

    If only we could have got past Chelsea.

    5 of us heading over, the others are going over just to watch it in Walkabout and never wanted tickets! So I might end up joining them depending on how lucky I am.

    I'm not a season ticket holder either at the moment but I am Cat A. I think I will have to hold on and hope I can get them when/if Cat C become available, he could handle not going if we can't get tickets but I couldn't face telling him I'm going and he's not. Just hope we don't miss out and I end up holding a bitter grudge against him for the rest of my days :(:(.

    You were at the game, you've watched the BBC highlights, the BT highlights, the Official FA highlights, the extended official club site highlights, but this is still worth a watch, if just for GT at the start:

    Potentially see you there then if we both fail at least 115 quid buys a fair bit of ale !

    Never seen or heard that piece from GT before. Such pride and emotion - absolutely love that man.

    Ruddy never looked comfortable.

    Major advantage to us.

    The kids are the ******* problem.

    Free seats down the Vic end & spend Saturdays at Legoland unless it’s Man U.

    Excellent Delph didn’t get injured.

    Want him to play.

    But Gino sacked Dyche.

    Facepalm!

    Quite. In Man City's petrodollar billions it is a small gift from the gods to have Delph in the starting line up.

    Do they still do Captains walking Prince Harry/William down the teams?

    Will Elton be there?

    I've just realised I've never been to an FA cup final before, actually never known Watford in an FA cup final. I started following soccerball aged 7 after seeing the open top bus parade after the final in 84.

    Under 20’s should have priority to buy tickets for this one. In fact they should get subsidised tickets in order to attract new fans. The club needs a fresh fan base of youngsters who will spend they’re money and offer support in the decades to come. Forget all the old fogeys who claim 50+ years of support, the old men sitting silently on their hands in the seat they’ve had since 1958, resenting any change and bitterly grumbling that it’s not as good as it used to be. They’ve had they’re time, move over and let the youth in.

    Try telling Ticketmaster that you are Cat C but have your own stand.

    We know a chap who is SEJ's tennis coach.
    He said he's coming over.
    We shall see.

    Unless he has a tour date on the 18th May, I can't see SEJ not going to the match.

    They may suggest that bringing it would fall foul of the tightened baggage restrictions. If it's already at Wembley, then great.

    I bet Lord Eddie of Howe has a collection of half and half scarves.
    That way you can always walk home from a match with an irritating smile on your face and claim that your team won.
