Hey! I'll have you know Delph has scored a tenth of our goals in this period of scoring for Mr Benteke.

I'm glad we don't have Liverpool in the final. The Gerrard birthday/last game wankfest would have ruined the whole occasion. Hopefully we won't underestimate Villa like we did Reading.

It's a shame Liverpool couldn't hang on for the upset yesterday. Would have been nice to avoid anxiety about bottling this.

Villa have a very good chance of beating us. They are built to counter attack our little prancing football... hopefully Sczeszney smokes in the shower and gets benched again.

Steven Gerrard’s FA Cup Final Birthday!
Those big bad Aston Villa boys only went and ruined Stevie Gerrard’s planned 35th birthday party on the 30th May at Wembley Stadium, after they knocked Liverpool out in the FA semi-finals.

For the love of banter and guaranteed BBC TV coverage (because they love him so much), why not go to Wembley armed with a Steven Gerrard mask, so Stevie G doesn’t miss out on his birthday.

£1.90 each with free postage, it’s a good value pi** take too! UTV"""

Arsenal to win again and then have another victory parade which they'll claim more than 20million people turned up to....pretty much like last year.

Think Arsenal will win it, will be another season of progress for them if they win this and secure a top 3 finish. Villa on their day can give anyone a game as proved, but it depends how they turn up. If Arsenal play to their best they'll beat Villa no matter what.

Arsenal will win this in the end feeling they will just be too good for villa but would not be surprised if it went into extra time.

I was thinking we could do this before the Southampton result. :lol:

Still, hoping we can pull it off with a similar performance to the Liverpool game. Think if we can keep Ozil/Sanchez quiet, we can keep Arsenal quiet. Easier said than done, I know.

Tbf form goes completely out the window on cup final day. Anyone can beat anyone...Obviously Arsenal will be favourites but on the day anything can happen. Just look at Wigan a couple of years ago or Birmingham in the league cup final in 08. Out of all the big clubs you're playing the side which like to balls it up the most....there's a positive.

Nah, we played them in the semi.

This will be a crap performance, nerve shredding extra time, maybe even penalties. Dunno who'll win. It'll be awful. Can't wait.

I'm just glad we won it last year, takes a lot of the pressure off us this year. Benteke will score at least one from a cross.

I hope Arsenal aren't planning on doing that god awful and cringeworthy video that they let loose last year of the players signing 'We're the famous Arsenal FC and we're going to Wembley...'

I nearly spat out my Cornflakes watching Bacary Sagna trying to sing.

Too late...to be fair this years one is a bit more taking the piss of the players who clearly don't know the words or can barely speak English.

It's a cliche, but if Villa score first then we could have a game on our hands.

If I had to put my last £10 on the game, I'd go Arsenal 2-0 Villa

It's interesting on who Wenger will start up front. I kind of like Theo up front for the first 60 minutes with Giroud coming on later in the game. I think Villa might be a little bit wobbly in the first 10 minutes and with Theo you will always have that ball over the top or the shorter pass into Ozil in the space behind.

BBC1 on Saturday is an absolute treat. FA Cup Final Day is once again an event. And without adverts! :2thumb:

Missing this game due to a wedding, which gives me a bad feeling. Every game I've missed, we've lost. The bride's family are villa fans as well!!

It's Cup Final Day!!!

Ospina or SZCZ?

Giroud or Walcott?

FOR ME we've got to stick with Ospina. Still not convinced he's very good, but Szczesny hasn't played for ages and would be going into it completely cold. And Giroud links our play together better than Walcott, even if he's not in scoringmost form.

Only 7 hours and 10 minutes to go!!!
