Chelsea V Arsenal: FA Cup Final Saturday 1st August 17:30 GMT


Recommended Posts



Wow that was like playing with a hand tied behind our back... absolutely crass officiating.. absolutely 3 rd class defending.. we had 4 players behind the ball.. and still we let them out number us and score.. that was not on Anthony taylor.. Some players are not Chelsea standard.. Rudiger is one of them..

Everything went wrong for us, not going to spend any time thinking about tactics or selection cause honestly it wouldn't have mattered at all. All he had to do was not send off Kovacic and we could be in extra time right now.

Guess it just wasn't Lamps destiny to win a trophy in his first season with Chelsea. That would have really capped off a decent first season in PL for him.

Destiny, what are you on about, that's just bollocks. It was a sh*tstorm of injuries and an incompetent f**kwit as a referee.

Awful day.

Three injuries, with two being soft tissue related (i.e. hamstring).

Appalling refereeing from start to finish. The decision to send Kovacic off baffles me.

Lose another FA Cup final to Arsenal.

Glad we made the top 4, but today hurts.

I have to salute Pedro, he was really pushing hard for the equaliser, that was his last contribution for Chelsea and he's paying a price for it too

Yeah credit to Pedro giving his all at the end, sorry to see him injured, hope a quick recovery, as well as to Pulisic and Dave, tough day for injuries for us, so much against us today, including the joke of a ref

Poor Pedro. Not how he would have wanted to end his career for us.

Honestly this has been a disaster from about 5mins on. Couldn't have gone much worse really. That game will be remembered for arguably the worst FA Cup Final refereeing performamce ever. Here's the facts

- 14 fouls to 2. 

- An incredibly soft penalty

- A ludicrous red card

- Goalkeeper catching the ball outside the box.

- Christensen fouled in the build up to their second goal 

That said I thought Arteta out thought Frank the whole way through. Injuries didn't help but we lost control of midfield after about 10 minutes and never got it back. 

On the bright side we'll be at the top table next season with an improved squad and they will be in Europa. Champions League was the objective and we got that. Today would have made it a very special season but sadly it wasn't to be.
