Thread: FA Cup Final, thank you Leicester...

  1. #1

    FA Cup Final, thank you Leicester...

    I'm not a Leicester fan (Middlesbrough's my team) but I just want to say thank you Leicester...

    A: For my winning bet of 3/1.

    B: For restoring my faith in football with fans back in the stadium and seeing a team actually want to win (imo) the greatest cup in football (after the World Cup of course lol).

    p.s I have to say I still don't like VAR and it's a joke to see a goal ruled out by mm's but...

    For me I'd rather see my team win a FA Cup than seeing them be congratulated for getting 4th place...

    The greatest cup competition in the world bar none.
    A lacklustre first half, one of the best goals ever seen at Wembley followed up by a stunning save , then the VAR decision.
    It was breathless watching for me as a neutral ( although I did have monetary interest in Leicester )
    Wolfie s next few posts are going to be fun .

    CL Final we will lose that as well
    A season of failure and please get us a striker Werner is and was a total waste of money.
    Congratulations to Leicester

    Thanks for revealing the result with your thread title. I was looking forward to watching the highlights but no point now.

    Why do people keep doing this?

    Werner and Havertz will be different animals next year. Adapting to the PL is really really difficult.
    There’s not much to change at your club. I’m expecting a really tough game in Porto and taking nothing for granted.
    You were a brilliant save and .5 mm away from taking that to extra time or even winning it .
    Leicester will be fighting it out at the very top again next season.

    Werner is a quality player but not a striker. His 29 goals in his last season Germany suggested he is but he's not. With a top striker up front at Chelsea you'd see the best of Werner.

    As a Wigan Athletic fan I was hoping Leicester would win.

    8 years ago I thought staying in the Prem was more important than the FA cup - but I was wrong. I don't miss the Prem, and they can't take the cup away from us!

    Felt sorry for Reece James, had a decent game and was immense on loan for us.

    Still hate VAR - sooner it is scrapped the better for me!

    It wasn't as close as that, you could see it was offside from the initial BBC freeze frame.

    Well done Leicester....great to see it matters

    I disagree. If you have to draw the lines on the screen he should be onside. There's no way that linesperson made a clear and obvious error. For me it was onside all day. Advantage should be with the forward.

    The initial BBC freeze frame didn't have lines and I could see it was off side

    Mate it must feel crap at the moment and I think most must feel like you. It does look that way but anything could happen in the CL final. Also I can't see Liverpool winning the rest of their games. To get to these finals is awesome in itself.

    If VAR was used for Leicester goal would it of stood with that handball?

    The handball wasn’t given because it came off his thigh first.
    It had to have been looked at .

    I'm sure I've seen others like that get ruled out.

    Most enjoyable FA Cup final for years for me, that one. Even if the first half was dull.

    I still don't like VAR but it certainly cranked up the drama today.

    Great result, my brother and family have supported Leicester for years! Kasper was my team, notts county, keeper so must be good🤣
    I will support Chelsea to win champion league though. Man city owners😉

    Of the premiership teams my family support either Man U or West Ham, and so I’m not a fan of Chelsea so was chuffed to see Leicester win, the reaction from Kasper S when the final whistle said it all to me, it meant so much to them.
    And the reaction of Gary Lineker on the commentary asking the other guys to take over from him as he was struggling to talk made it all the more special.

    Fantastic
    You can’t buy those experiences. I started to take my daughter to City when we were still everyone’s favourite second team .
    She did a few years of typical City . Then we won the FA Cup again.
    Even now , we never take the trophies for granted .

    Absolutely delighted for Leicester, the club, the fans, everyone. It was great to see the owner come on and lift the cup. You don't see that when Liverpool or United win something. A great result for football.

    Although my Dad was a true Blue Evertonian he was just as much a true football fan and unfortunately he died during the 2015/16 season when Leicester won the PL and I remember saying that he would have loved that outcome and I think he would have enjoyed today just as much.

    Funny how second teams go, over the last year or two I have enjoyed watching Wolves, but this season I have been split between Leicester and Leeds.

    I think Leicester have a few aging players which will need replacing such as Wes Morgan, but Vardy is still too good to be just a squad player. They need to buy a couple of top players and push on.

    Delighted for everyone connected with Leicester.

    The Cup I always wanted us to win and thought we’d sometime have a chance. Never thought we’d win the League at any point so that was an amazing bonus. I’d rather have won this than get the top 4 tbh. But now there’s no harm in being greedy lol

    Yup congratulations City, the result wasn't what we wanted but by far the best thing was meeting up and having a beer with some of my best mates who I've not seen since February last year.
    I'd take that over an FA Cup any day.
    See you again for the rematch on Tuesday!
