Something like that.

I feel sorry for Wolves fans, but at least Spurs fan now get an extra trip to somewhere interesting for an EL qualifying round....

Agreed. I hope he returns to the Premier League soon.....

Someone had to take the fall for relegation, and the manager usually is the one taking it.

It is remarkable. Three promotions in 5 seasons and a season and a half within that time he was at Burnley.

Could be the perfect manager for Bristol City's vacancy. So let's hope he doesn't go there.

Congrats Arsenal, super final.

Shame about the terrible decision for the red card but that's more of a failing of VAR as well as the rather tragic Arsenal reaction.

Still, I got pissed and managed to stick money on Arsenal for some reason, so woke up happy.

Agreed, it was a terrible referreeing decision for Kovacic's second yellow, but I'll take the win anyway. VAR couldn't get involved as the referee had seen the incident even though the decision was wrong.

As for waking up happy, I hope you treated her to something nice with some of your winnings......

Yeah, they said on telly it wasn't a straight red so couldn't be reviewed etc. Which makes sense in a VAR sort of way, even though it makes no sense logically.

Still, like I said, a great cup final and does that make the FA Cup Arsenal's in general? Have they won it more than anyone?

She's spent it all and more this morning at the illegal booze shop. We've got a few days away with friends this week so it is money well spent.

We've apparently got to the final 21 times and won it 14 of those, both more than anyone else, so yeah, I think we'll keep it. But had Chelsea won, I expected John Terry to turn up to lift the trophy......

Of course there's the added bonus that Spurs get to play a team or three who've taken their club name from an opticians chart, and who may fancy their chances at their own ground as they're one-legged games this season.

Don't forget the wild celebrations on the touchline when they got 'into' Europe as well. Hilarious.
