Recommended Posts

The ' considerably less ' aspect has me somewhat baffled .

 

Yesterday , there were over 80,000 seats taken , but how many were not from supporters of either side ?

 

A little priority seems to be going amiss with the FA .

 

BTW ... What a voice our supporters showed yesterday . Big thumbs up .

Always the way, I've said elsewhere that a large amount of tickets are distributed through the whole FA pyramid for the final, unlike the semi.

Not to mention corporate hospitality and club Wembley....it's a disgrace but it's always been that way to an extent.

Ticket prices have been announced :blink: but no word on the allocation/qualifying criteria yet.......

If it works like ours (which is a pretty good setup), the FA takes about 10 or 20%, to give out to certain people, and the rest is equally divided between the 2 clubs. Any leftouts will be sent to whomever asks for them, or maybe sold at the stadium...

I'm now going to go to every away game until the end of the season in hope of having a greater chance of getting final tickets. I bought tickets for Chelsea this week and the Sunderland game coming up, going to by the Fulham tickets as soon as they go on sale as well. Fingers crossed.

What we need to happen now is for Chelsea to beat Barcelona so they play in the Champions League in the week before the final, preferably winning it.

 

It cost us the cup in '85 I'm convinced so a bit of payback is due ;) .

Worth a go I suppose but I doubt it will make any difference because they will probably go on sail next week

I doubt they will go on sale next week to be honest. I can't even see them making an announcement until next week. Plus the Chelsea and Sunderland games will now be on my account so they will count already, its onl;y the Fulham which is a doubt. I'll have 8 cup and away games without the fulham game, hoping that will be enough.

^^^ Do you have any idea how hard it is to get a ticket to an away game............... You need a season ticket plus away credit to go to chelsea and lots of away credits just to go to a "lesser" game......

 

Allways a chance though........ you might get one for the fulham game

:rolleyes: Err, have you not read my posts properly? I already have my tickets for Chelsea and Sunderland. I am a Season Ticket holder and with the Chelsea/ Sunderland games that will then equate to 8 credits on my account, 9 if I get the Fulham as well.

Would have to agree with that Jamie he's one of the best around in the Premiership and will probably issue a fair final. Riley did well in the semi final so hopefully the good standard of officials will come through the rounds.

 

I'm happy but as we all know this dosen't mean that he will be refereeing come May ;)

Think Chelsea are out on away goals. This only makes the FA Cup harder. Messi worked the ball to Iniesta on the edge of the Chelsea box and the Barcelona midfielder sended his effort into the top left hand corner of Cech's goal. Barcelona have equalised and it looks like they will go through on the away goals rule. Manchester United and Barcelona in the final.

 

Is it me or is it funny that we see two red cards in the semi's?

Flethcher (United) and Adibial (Barcelona)

 

Does this show us that the game is getting more physical? Or just out of coincidence. From Sky Sports it sound as if the sendings off were unjustified.

Just abit.. Hiddink will want to win something before he goes, and the players will want to thank him by winning something for him before he leaves

 

Just hope the boys can do some more giant killing :)

Agree, last time we won it Man.Ure had just lost out on the prem and we took away their chance of a bit of silverware for that season, maybe we could do it to another disappointed team again this season...

I would rather Chelsea have lost in the final, after extra time and one hell of a physical battle!

Can only imagine them being up for the FA cup big time now.If third place is safe I guess a rest for a couple of the big names is on the cards!!

 

 

Well I recon we should rest Hibbert, that'll show Chelsea we mean business :mellow:

 

 

On a brighter note, they wanted to beat us big time the other night at their place.......but couldn't :)

I too wanted them to get through but on the flip side if they'd have won the Euro cup they'd have been flying ifrom a confidence point of view. Also, they now have 3 weeks of playing out the season without any real goals after a major disappointment which could affect them. Either way, as taxi said, it's about us not them so COYB!!!

(-) Chelsea have a million pound team

(-) They have Hiddink, a manager who will want silverware before he goes back to Russia

(-) FC Barcelona beat them in the 90th minute, that will piss them off

(-) Jagielka joins Arteta (and Yakubu) as a non-finalist

(-) Some reason I get the feeling we are in shakey form, thats probably just me

(+) We are underdogs, we have nothing to lose. We are Everton.

 

And Liverpool and Manchester United are better than Chelsea right? Look what we did to them. :)

You could look at Fletchers another way , as pointed out by a City fan funnily enough :lol:

 

Fletcher got the ball - fact .

The ball was still in play , and within Arsenals reach - fact .

Fletchers leg caught Fabregas' after the interception - fact

Fabregas fouled and prevented a 2nd opportunity - fact

Fletcher was last man - fact

Rules are he goes - fact

Result = penalty - fact

 

Or you could just say it was a mooner being a mooner :lol:

 

Still gutted for the kid .

His bank account will buy a few pick me ups though .

I think it would have made a difference. Obviously it is still all down to us and we cant just hope that fate smiles kindly on us. But them appearing in the final would have an effect on there performance in the FA Cup final. It is only 4 days before the FA Cup final, there is travelling between england and italy, and for the players to riase themselves up for the Chapions League final and then to do the exact same thing days later for the FA Cup final is a big ask.

 

Them appearing in the Champions League Final would have benefitted us, I don't see any other way of looking at it. Still, it will make no change to our own preperation. We do things the hard way.

Great to hear;

 

Steven Pienaar is relishing every second of his time at a "massive club" based in Liverpool 4, and believes hunger is the key to overcoming Chelsea in the cup final.

 

In South Africa they call David Moyes the white witch doctor because of what he has achieved with Everton. We’re a massive club with a great history but now we want to achieve some things in the modern era. We’ve already beaten Liverpool, Manchester United and Aston Villa in the Cup so beating Chelsea at Wembley is not an impossible task. It’s not often that you get to a Cup final when you play for Everton and that will motivate us even more. Our hunger is the key.”
