will he wear his kit to his trial though?

Ismael Klata, Thursday, 26 April 2012 18:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

will wear it under his George suit won't he, then whip it off in the bogs if he has to go and collect the trophy

He'll try to dirty up the kit as well. In 25 yrs time he'll be showing his grandchildren pics of the time he captained Chelsea to European Cup success.

Actually for added authenticity he should probably wear a Bayern shirt as if he had swapped it post match

lol at the time spent on whether the first was offside too

The first Leeds goal is bad enough, but the third is truly the stuff of nightmares

I actually bought that top about a month before that match, seeing it reduced to half price in a sports shop and not realising that was because they were going to stop wearing it at the end of the season (obviously this was a few years before they became famous for ditching shirts).

I always thought that was an adidas-logo-pattern, but it's not. What is it, some sort of maple leaf thing?

it was a time of pure aesthetics and computer-generated wonderment i would suggest

agree it does have a nice canadian winter olympics quality to it tho, perhaps a cool runnings influence

Terry must have done himself a world of good for his forthcoming appearance in court with his half-time statement about what happened with Alexis Sanchez the other night.

CPS barrister: "Mr Terry, is there any reason for the court to believe you might lie about your own misdemeanours on the pitch in order to protect your reputation? Can you recall any instances in which you have failed to supply the truth about about offences you have committed when subsequently asked."

Terry: "You fucking blind cunt."

Maybe he abused Ferdinand 'just to let him know he was there'.

It saddens me that his sending off may have actually galvanized Chelski to some extent. I often like JT's committment (preferably to prison, of course) but he's such a monumental idiot.

I saw a reference somewhere to the Cup Final kicking off at 5.15pm and assumed it was an amusing comment on the inevitability of it being a sterile affair settled on penalties. But no, it's true. What's the idea behind that?

Ismael Klata, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

The Football Association can confirm that this season’s FA Cup with Budweiser Final between Chelsea and Liverpool will kick-off at 5.15pm on Saturday 5 May.

It will be the first FA Cup Final under floodlights at Wembley Stadium in almost 20 years – the last being Arsenal’s replay win over Sheffield Wednesday in 1993 when a last-minute header from Andy Linighan in extra-time sealed a 2-1 victory for the Gunners.

The FA aren't saying so let's assume it's for TV

'We stated on record at the end of last season's final that we were looking at a later kick-off time after an FA review of the competition with fans and broadcasters," said a spokesman.

'Research showed that 5.15pm was more appealing than 3pm.

'5.15pm obviously gives people a chance to attend or play in a game earlier that day before watching the final on TV.

'The later time also maximises a bigger domestic and global TV audience for broadcasters.'

'Also we are huge cunts.'

Engineering work, planned up to 18 months in advance, by Network Rail over the bank holiday weekend means Virgin Trains have cancelled all but three of their Liverpool to London services on the day of the final.

And while fans are being advised to travel to the capital via Manchester, Chester or Stoke, there appears to be no means of making the return journey as there are no trains returning to the north-west after the game.

Further engineering work near Milton Keynes means return journey times of over five hours for those hoping to travel back the day after.

i'd say "unfuckingbelievable" but y'know it's the FA so

that start time makes it significantly easier for me to see it, though.

Is the bank hol for May day? Who's stupider or more stubborn in this case, the FA or Network Rail?

Fucking hell. No transport, graveyard slot on telly, drowned out by the greatest league in the world - the Coupe de France is going to be the world's preëminent cup competition before you know it.

Ismael Klata, Friday, 27 April 2012 18:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's a better telly slot, tbh

xp

the FA if that line about the repairs being announced 18 months ago is correct.

puts an interesting spin on all the whining when they weren't allowed to organise a World Cup finals, they can't even organise 1 match.

i'm sure that overseas markets were in mind when they altered the time

seapunk run. run punk run! (Noodle Vague), Friday, 27 April 2012 18:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

Why would Network Rail do repairs on a line over bank holiday weekend, though? Is there less traffic? I would have thought it made for a good weekend getaway to have an extra day off.
