I just wish Chelsea had scored in the last minute of normal time, rather than make us sit through another half hour of rubbish football.
When the two semi finals were over, so many pundits said it was the Final the FA wanted, the perfect final for the new Wembley Stadium, and in many ways it was. In much the same way that the FA have spent so much on the new national stadium (who’s location makes it difficult for most of the nation to get there) and are now obsessed with raking in as much money as they can from it, the two sides on display today clearly weren’t interested in winning it or not, just how much money they could have been earning in the Champions League.
I feel sorry for the real fans of Chelsea and Manchester United, who have forked out huge amounts of money to watch that game, I’m almost glad my Team (Blackburn) didn’t make it, but at least the two beaten semi-finalists would have made a better stab at trying to win the competition. There were so many long balls, so many poor passes, possession given away far too easily, many of the same criticism aimed at the less fashionable clubs like ours.
