    I'd rather put the food I ate at wembley in a jar on a bookshelf after it passes through. With a tasteful plinth out of walnut and a yellow ribbon.

    I stand corrected on suitable trophy for Sunday’s achievement. What was I thinking. :D

    SAF gets 3 votes as he used to manage Man Utd.
    Bassett is just there to make the tea and type the minutes.

    My tea making is probably 7/10.
    Typing not so sure!

    I'm guessing the other Bassett's tea would be 3/10 max.

    Just checking in to make sure no one has washed their pants and lucky shirt from Sunday as it will need to be saved for May 18 .

    Anyone with clean underwear willl be sent home before entering the ground .

    I revived the tradition and did a poo in my seat for the semi final, so I’ll need to do this again on the 18th.

    Also, were they selling half and half scarfs at the Green Man? Pretty sure I saw some. Nice soft toilet paper if you ask me!

    This time last week, Deulofeu had just come on.

    You’re welcome.

    This time last week I'd just ****ed myself off for the 10th time at the highlights.

    You're welcome.

    Good news - Sir Elton John won't be at Wembley as he's performing in Copenhagen that evening.

    'Sh*t. We've only gone and reached the f***ing final.'

    'Dude. I know. Like, WTF?'

    'Dude, we've got like, a fortnight to design some T-shirts'

    'Sh*t dude. Will this do?'

    'Gonna have to dude.'

    Didn't they have the semi-final merchandise already on display in the shop by full time in the Palace game? The stuff might be naff but the whole operation is on a different level to years gone by.

    The words ‘The Emirates’ at the top makes it ten times worse. The little logo at the bottom should have been enough to meet the sponsor’s rights.

    There is that! And we’ll probably only need it to come to our rescue 6 or 7 times so fingers crossed.

    Counter intuitively I'm ok with tonight. They could be a little nervous now.

    If Liverpool pip them to the title they’ll probably feel a little embarrassed ‘only’ being able to win the 2 domestic cups. Might be somewhat half hearted. I’m clutching at those straws.

    Damn Pep just mentioned the FA cup final in his interview. Was kind of hoping they would just forget to turn up.

    Vulnerable & sensitive?

    Another extended FB outage & Pep ‘Kevin the Teenager’ Pep could be in mega sulk mode.

    Javi should hire a Son alike for the final.

    Is that @rsenal guy still available?

    They are definitely susceptible at the back and when things aren't going their way they become obviously nervy.

    The worst thing we could do is be too defensive in my mind because they will inevitably break us down. We need the first goal.

    I would quite like to see a 3-5-2/5-3-2 with Pereyra part of the middle three and Deulofeu up with Deeney. We have to try and give them problems of our own at the same time as keeping it tight.

    Me too. Think I've run out of straws.

    Three at back is super risky.

    I would be surprised if Javi went with it.

    Not sure Deeney will start. Javi may want more pace.

    We could plank up the goal, although that would present problems for the second half.

    I'm now seeing the Pep myth for what it really is. No Messi no Champions League. Even the VAR Gods finally caught up with him last night.

    In that respect it makes no difference for the FA Cup final though but it felt nice to type it!
