Arsenal V Chelsea
Sunday morning 2am start

London Derby - I think Arsenal to win as Chelsea may have been doing to much celebrating recently.
1-0 to the Arsenal.

Possibly but the gap between the 2 clubs is to great IMO.

I hope you're right.

A win for Arsenal would salvage something from an otherwise underwhelming season

As for Celtic, good on em for going undefeated, but lets be honest - they shouldn't be losing any games in Scotland

One thing this season in Scotland has shown is that there is no competition in Scotland for Celtic, as most of the rest of the Scottish Premier League clubs would struggle in the English League Two.

Aberdeen was the best of the rest and could probably manage to survive in the lower half of the Championship and Rangers in League 1.

It is little wonder Celtic struggle so badly in European competition when they come up against the better clubs.

They'd do more than struggle. They'd get relegated.

I was being kind, so I didn't upset our Scottish members.

celtic would probably survive, not seen much of Aberdeen this year, Rangers would maybe come 22nd.

In a way, it's sad that one of the 'Home Nations' has become so poor due to the dominance over many years of the 'Old Firm'.

When ManUre dominated the EPL for so long at least there were other clubs able to give them a run for their money and now MU are one of the chasing pack.

Would be funny if Arsenal won the cup and then Wenger got sacked. Maybe Wenger can have a drink with Van Gaal and get some sympathy :wink:

Wouldn't be an issue if Scotland and celtic only had Scottish players in their side. 22 jocks all playing for the top 2 teams would help their joke of a national team.

FA Cup Final- Arsenal 1 v Chelsea 2: Should be a close game but can't see Chelsea taking their foot off the gas.
Scottish Cup Final- Aberdeen 1 v Celtic 3: Celtic should be too strong and Aberdeen will have to hope Celtic have an off day for them to have any chance of causing an upset.
It is an ideal opportunity for little Griffiths to show his undoubted talent and hopefully Rogic will start though his season has been hampered with injuries, hence he may come off the bench. Fully expect Celtic (and Roberts in his last game) to wrap up the season in style.
Looking forward to both games and hopefully the best teams win on the day. Come on the hoops!

P.S. Think that the Arsenal Whinger (Arsene Wenger) will be leaving the club no matter the result this weekend. As a neutral
I wouldn't mind Arsenal sneaking it, just not expecting it to happen.

Great end-to-end game where both teams went for it. Congrats to Arsenal. Congrats to Professor Wenger for his record as a manager in winning the F.A. Cup so many times.

OK, a 2am Sunday kick-off television time on SBS1 here in Adelaide was awkward, but it was disgraceful that there wasn't a single line in the Sat 27 May Crowtiser previewing this crowning finale to the season.

We have to keep Sanchez no matter what, everyone played great in the final but what a game and what a season from Alexis.

Arsenal – splash da cash because this guy is irreplaceable.
