FA Cup Final - kick-off time
 
Cannot do better than draw your attention to Daniel Taylor's piece for tomorrow's Observer:

I couldn't agree more. Selling their soul to the $.

And the fact that a sponsors ribbons are around the cup is plainly wrong too.

As a final point, the cup is played 2 weeks before the end of the season! Why is that?

It always used to be the finale, after all the games had finished. Not now.

FA, **** All, don't care at all about the fans of the game, only to please their corporate sponsors.

Truly disgusting.

And while I'm on the subject, fair play to John Terry not shaking hands with that tosser Bernstein last night - say hat you want about JT, but at least he has the courage of his convictions.

Or maybe he shagged Bernsteins wife/daughter/niece....

Didn't that occur a few evenings ago when Chelsea had to officially return the Champions League trophy to those muppets at UAFA?
