    Well tomorrow is the first FA Cup final at the new Wembley.

    But the big question is, who will win?

    I think it could be Man Utd. They have a stronger team at the moment without in injuries that have hit Chelsea (although it probably isn't as bad a Jose wants us to think!).

    Should be a good game and hopefully both teams will give 100%.

    I don't think you need worry that both teams will give anything but 100% ... as it's the first FA cup final in the "New Wembley" I'm sure it will be a "belter" as they say here in the Emerald Isle. :)

    In pure supporter terms, I don't want either to win, but if I had to choose one, it would be Man Utd.

    In pure football terms, again it would be Man Utd.

    **c* Chelsea and their special manager and dodgy Russian money. They should be called Fulham Broadway FC.

    I agree that both teams will give 100% but I'm not sure it'll be a belter! My worry is that neither team will really want to lose as it's the first cup final at the new Wembley and the game will therefore be a bit dull!

    Hopefully I'll be totally wrong though and it will be as good as last years! :)

    I just cannot get myself to hope for Man Utd... no matter who they're playing against... ever...

    I don't really care who wins, but I'm cheering for the blue ones (which comes a bit more naturally to me, anyway)... ;)

    Man United will win I think, and at the end of the day I think I hope they do too.. hard as it is to call that one.. Chelsea losing on penalties (again) would be my preference.. ideally with Cashley **** missing the decisive one.

    ManUre have been the most entertaining and convincing team this season, so would be my choice.

    Chelski have spent a ridiculous amount of money, play boring, have an arrogant SOB manager... and will probably win 1-0 in injury time.

    As a neutral, I'll be watching the match but I'm not overly fussed who wins it – my interest in that respect ended in the Third Round. ;)

    But what I'm hoping is that it'll be an entertaining, exciting match – something in the vein of the Liverpool-West Ham final we enjoyed last year, rather than a damp squib as some recent finals have been. Unfortunately, given all the reasons for wanting it being a classic – the current two top teams in the country, the first final at the new stadium – makes me think we might end up disappointed. Will it live up to expectations?

    Excellent goal by Drogba!

    Yeah, was an excellent goal. Very worthy of winning a cup final!

    I think Chelsea were just about the better side and deserved the win.

    I don't like Chelsea (now, because of all the irritating 'supporters' that just happened to pop up after Abramovich came), but my brother supports Man United, and was even there, so I was semi-supporting the blues :D

    The trouble with potential is that it generally means two big sides in the final and that means no-one wanting to lose!

    I mentioned earlier in the thread that I hoped the match would be an exciting affair –unfortunately though I found it rather disappointing. Certainly it was nowhere near as good as last year's final and I think I've been spoilt by watching the play-off semi-finals over the past week which have been absolutely cracking games, even for the neutral.

    It's a busy weekend for the new Wembley – tomorrow it plays host to the Conference play-off final. I wonder if the non-Leaguers can serve up a better match than the Premiership's top teams? ;)

    If someone told me that a championship game would end 1-0 on a goal scored deep into extra time was boring, I wouldn't have believed it, but it happened. Both sides looked lackluster. After Drogba scored, I remember thinking, why didn't he just do that earlier. :rolleyes:
