Such an embarrassing turn out for both sets of fans not even selling out it's the FA Cup Final FFS
You do realise that the FA disperse loads of tickets to their county FAs and the two finalists get a smaller proportion than say in the League cup final.
Having a go at City but not knowing football well enough to know this, ffs

Yes everyone knows that but both sets of fans still didn't sell out their allocation for a cup final is frankly embarrassing.
Lad I was offered a ticket: £145. Sorry after going away at Easter I could not afford it, £145 plus travel down and London prices is what £250, I couldn’t justify it.

Missing the chance to see Man City be the first English club ever to win a domestic treble is surely priceless.

TBH I'm more disappointed by the Watford turn out its literally 20 minutes on the train and they still can't sell out their allocated tickets. It's not like you reach a cup final every day.

Just announced attendance at 85,000 so stop complaining
Clearly a fabricated number. :lol:

For me, Arsenal were looking like they were putting together something brilliant in the transfer window before they signed Ozil. Cazorla was playing behind the striker and had a fantastic season, they then went for Suarez and missed out, so signed Ozil and ended up pushing Cazorla into a position that didn't suit him. Cazorla in that advanced position was far, far better than Ozil has ever been for Arsenal too.

Had that transfer window gone right for Arsenal and Cazorla was still number 10, playing behind Suarez, they'd have pushed for the title. Missing out on Suarez and then overpaying on a relative flop in Ozil killed the momentum they had been building up, all just to satisfy some fans who were angry that the club still wasn't spending big money.
Not that I disagree about the Ozil part but Cazorla was fucking wonderful in that deeper position. He linked the defence and attack brilliantly. He could play anywhere, tbh.

Why do they persist playing these non league games at Wembley? There were more people in the self scan queue at my local Lidl this morning than are currently watching the FA Vase inside the stadium...

For a fair bit of its history it didn't count for much. Initially it was unpopular then it became a route into Europe with the cachet of playing in a final at Wembley and for a few years had a bit of a golden period.

Then they called it the Milk Cup and it was all
