More interested in the Scottish Cup Final, imagine if Inverness CT win it 🤯

They would be in Europa League too, or Aberdeen if Celtic win it.
Super Cally go ballistic, Celtic are atrocious?

This was the option I was after. I hate United (particularly Ratface and Slabhead, and the general sense of entitlement) but the ownership and alleged 115 or whatever it is breaches of City, rankle too.

The poll title should have been "Who do you less mind winning the FA Cup?" 🤔
"Who do you want to win?" makes it sound like we want them to win.
Don't suppose it can be changed now.

I'm firmly in the ABU camp.

I will definitely be watching (I always do), but FA Cup Finals seem to get less and less memorable by the year. 70s and 80s I could tell you who played who, what the score was and probably most of the goalscorers. But I'm pretty sketchy on the 90's, and anything beyond that I just haven't a clue. In fact, at this moment I can't even remember last years!

Must be me age.
Yep, I could have written all of this. I can still hear Motson say “sweet skills from Brady” and see Brooking’s diving header, but couldn’t tell you who the current holders are.

F1 quali and Derby day in this household today. Zero interest in this game.

Citeh, don't think anyone at work 'supports' them. As for Man Utd...work and local football with fans from the northern footballing heartlands of Faversham, Leatherhead, Slough, Ruislip and Oxford...painful listening to them talking about anything football related, even worse when 'they' win.

The ultimate non event with these two in it, even 'An Evening with Frank Lampard in Conversation with Graham Potter and Chris Sutton' at the Eastbourne Winter Gardens would be more exciting by comparison. Can't be many neutrals who will bother watching it surely?
It’s a local derby and the last six games between the two teams have produced 23 goals. The game will feature the current best striker in the whole world and the best coach. Peel back the veneer of dislike for both owners and both sets of fans and this should be a cracking, and enjoyable, game of football.

And, as much as it’ll be annoying seeing the winning fans celebrating, the other entitled lot will have to put up with a four hour motorway trip home* with their rivals rubbing it in, and then carrying on all summer.

*yes I know Guildford is the other way before someone pumps that “gag” out for the 7089th time this season.

I was in Asda earlier and there was a guy (early twenties I’d guess) holding court to his mates, he was obviously a Southerner with a shiny United shirt on. We still have work to do :lolol:

City.

Utd don't stop banging on about Man city 'buying' titles when their wage bill and expenditure is the match of City's. The only difference is that utd have whored their soul to anyone who'll buy it (have a look at their 'official partners' list)while City sold theirs to a middle eastern tourist board.

I'm sick of the press constantly all over everything Utd do. No other team gets anywhere near the print/air time they do and it's been that way for at least 30 years. Utd are shit we get hammered by 'utd in crisis' pieces, if they win a game it's all about their renaissance. A utd player gets injured it's national news.

They really need to just f*** off but they never do so if we must have to endure them everywhere day after day, year after year then it might as well be for them f***ing up.

So 5-1 city please.

I usually back the underdog, but can't bear the thought of Fernandes the weasel winning anything. So basically, I want them both to lose.

Hoping (and betting) that it'll be the traditional 4-0/4-1 to City. Oh, and that Slabhead starts. Always gotta love his hangdog expression when he does something hilariously crap.

And just watching Football Focus. Just knew they'd wheel out Noel Gallagher. Shame. Liam would 'of' been far more fookin entertaining. Or entertainin as Alec Scott would say. Speaking of Noel, is it just me, or is Noel's head getting longer? I've seen Grenadier Guards with less of a bearskin :lol:

I'll be watching. But I too have no idea who won last year.
Best FA Cup final memory is '79 watching with an Arsenal fan. 2:0 up minutes to go. 2:2 then 3:2 but fan had gone home.
Also '71 and Charlie George laying flat and just looking up.
Niether of course beat '83.

I voted for the couldn't give a monkeys option.
But after walking past our local Wetherspoons, full of red :tossers: sounding like Landaners.
