Re: Back in 1979...

...we won an enthralling cup final 3-2, our first trophy in eight years, a period in which we relied on young players and nearly got relegated. The following season we blew the title with 4 games to go, and lost 2 cup finals within a week. We played over 70 games that season. The 79/80 season was v...

Re: FA Cup Final - Arsenal vs Hull

LOL didnt criticize him for his defensive work but while we are on topic a winger today has to be able to def duties, hence why Morinho flogged Mata off to UTD. Get your point, but thought maybe this wasn't the best example to use. Is it possible that Mata would have been the difference for Chelsea...

Re: FA Cup Final - Pubs around Arsenal

We came back to Arsenal after the game...and have to say that we were a little (just a little!) jealous... The Auld Triangle had run out of lager...draft and bottled. The chandeliers were just about hanging from the ceiling, and there were beer stains on the TV... The woman behind the bar said it ha...

Re: The Yaya Sanogo Progress Thread

Thought he played well against Wigan...and again yesterday. He could end up being the best striker never to score for the club!

Re: Bradford.FC fire (Hillsborough Comparison)

This was a bit of a mess really. A minority of people started clapping, and although more people joined in most obviously had no idea what it was for and presumed we were just getting behind the team. Maybe in certain parts of the ground, but where I was it was quite intentionally done as a mark of...

Re: FA Cup Final - Arsenal vs Hull

Was going to drink before the game in a pub called "The Bear" on Wembley High Road...only to find that the twats had renamed it...consolation though that it forced on into JJ Moons where the beers were unbelievably cheap. Also a great atmosphere. Thought the Hull fans were miserable fuckers - just l...

Re: FA Cup Final - Arsenal vs Hull

It seems surreal that we're just hours away from potentially banishing this barren spell to the clutches of history... All these years of anguish and torment, being ridiculed by other fans, getting slated by journalists - it could all be over come this evening. ...and hopefully they will show some ...

Re: Cup final tickets

Just overheard a conversation where a non-football fan colleague was talking about what he was up to at the weekend and casually said he was going to a football match. Turns out his mate is an Arsenal season ticket holder who got two tickets in the ballot, and didn't have anyone else to go with so a...

Re: FA Cup Final - Arsenal vs Hull

The 56 minute thing, don't bother, it's your day not ours. Do it and small vociferous bunch of social media grief junkies, who were not even born that day, will have won. That will be a sad day for football, before you know it, Bolton will want the same, Man U too, then Rangers, then the cup final ...
