Cup Final Day.. enough said

Morning Boys, it is FA CUP FINAL DAY.  It used to be the best day of the year for me. How I loved all the build up to it. I was a BBC man so I would be tuned in to Cup Final Grandstand all day. I would switch over to ITV once in a while but it was the Beeb for me. I was actually Youtubing yesterday and found many FA Cup build ups. I am in the process of watching a three hour Grandstand for United's clash with Brighton in '83. Even crazy David Icke was at the Brighton hotel. It was great viewing and still have a lot of it to watch.
Anyway, today is the repeat of the 1990 Cup Final. It will be 8th Final since WW2 to repeat as a Final. Can you name the other 7? I can! It was The Beast question last night on 5Live and I had Matt Tweet in the answer. Right at the end Kelly Cates said "Matt on Twitter got them all".
All you know my hatred for the bloke on the right in the picture and I don't want him to have any reason to stay but United have to win today. 12 years without the Cup is too long. Will Carrick and Rooney get their hands on the one bit of domestic silverware they haven't touched before!

Good morning UWS. I had similar childhood experiences . I watched Grandstand unless we had a match for LHS. I hate the same bloke and have a vested interest in United losing. If three results go my way then I win the shield, but all three results have to go my way. One of them is for Palace to win the Cup for the first time ever.

The other seven are :

The Merseyside Derby
United vs Liverpool
Arsenal vs Liverpool

United vs Chelsea

I'm drawing a blank on the seventh final

Morning, chaps - thanks to UWS for getting us started this morning. This day always brings back memories of the old days, of waking up early and staying in my pajamas half the morning watching the players having breakfast, the celebrity It's a Knockout and finally the match itself. Now, those who entertained us, from Frank Bough to Dickie Davies to Morecambe and Wise are all long gone. But we still have a match to watch - and it promises to be a good one.

Good morning,

Well done mate, you got the six that I expected you to get
The one that you didn't get is obscure but I pulled it out of the bag. I could name the seasons for the these Finals except for the one missing

Merseyside was 86 and 89
United Liverpool 77 96
Arsenal Liverpool 71, 01
United Arsenal 79, 05
United Everton 85, 95
United Chelsea 94, 07

and... Arsenal Newcastle 98 and 53... I think

Thanks UWS. I would have never guessed that one. I thought about it, but thought they had only played in '98. Palace's only Cup finals have been against United.

I am back from walkies and listening to Talksport
They were reporting that media outlets were reporting that Zaha wasn't in the team but would not confirm it. Then it was announced that Zaha is starting
As for United, Fellaini is starting... I hate him but he would help us at set pieces where we have been BLOODY USELESS

Just to review, the following PPPers can pick up 8 points today with a United win:

Blue Devil, Chelskilad, Red Dragon, The Saint, and Yellows

Red Devil and Simon can pick up 2 points for a United loss.

Swansong, MUR, Gooner and Yellows are still in the frame for the LOB Shield.

Palace's only other Cup Final was against us.It finished 3-3 then United won 1-0 in a replay. I expect something similar to the replay since we have Ge Gea instead of Jim Leighton in goal and Palace don't have a goal scorer of the likes of Ian Wright.

They can be good on their day, but they have been part of a horrible Palace collapse the second half of the season. It all depends which players show up. The ones that were outstanding the first half of the season or the ones that were part of the second half collapse.

I don't see Giggsy be retained. Jose likes to keep the same coaching staff from club to club. I expect a very Portugese coachng staff

A long range effort from Carrick finds a lucky fan in Row H

What the hell is Rooney doing tackling back in the area?
