    Wenger sacking? I'm not sure if you're kidding but if you're serious, you need to accept he isn't getting the sack. And even if he were, it wouldn't be tomorrow.

    Nah I'm not fully serious I've watched the press conference and he's already said the result won't affect his role anyway

    Just trying to hype it up as much as I can lool

    But a lot will be after his head just like last season if we do end up losing though

    i'm not sure how i feel about tomorrow.

    in a way, i really want you guys to win because it's just getting old and stale when people talk about your trophy drought.
    if you ignore the actual glory of winning the fa/league cup, a consistent top 4 finish (which you have achieved consistently) yields bigger rewards, since you get champions league football rather than europa league.

    on the other hand, i am from yorkshire, and i have massive respect for how well bruce has done this season for hull, so i'll be supporting them
    not to mention how depressingly hilarious it would be if you mess up.

    So what type of football is for Chelsea fans?

    team wise obviously yes ours is the smallest game but that's taking everything else out of context

    FA cup > German Fa cup
    Arsenal first trophy in 9 years OR potential sacking of Wenger much bigger than the other two (although Atletico winning the league, which is a bigger deal for them but none of us are spanish and should be pretending to give a ****)
    I like high pressure counter attacking football. Like Dortmund under klopp and Bayern before they were ruined by Pepball, we're boring though I accept that.

    Meh, German FA cup means more since Bayern and Dortmund are rivals and Bayern take their best players.

    Atlético winning the league is a bigger deal than the FA cup. Although saying that Wenger's potentially leaving could affect it.

    I didn't watch football much that time btw so dunno.

    If we win it will just go from "no trophy in x years" to "only one trophy in 9 years". Then if we win the community shield people will say it doesn't count because it is a glorified friendly(I think it is tbh). But if we were lose the community shield it will go back to "hahaha only one trophy in nine years"

    Nah your right actually that's what we did. Didn't read your post properly thought you said high speed counter attacking football, my bad.

    It was effectively what Madrid did against Bayern, soak up pressure and broke with Rooney, Ronaldo, Tevez and Nani. It depresses me how **** our team is now compared to then.

    Side note- do you think Jose will change tactics next year with Costa in the team? You can play a bit more direct, will we see less of the '3 amigos' and a few more crosses into the box? And could you envisage a 4-4-2 with Lukaku-Costa up top?

    that is true - people will always try to ridicule you.
    but it has much less value once you win a trophy imo; it's almost a desperate attempt really.

    in any case, who cares?
    you'll have won more trophies than liverpool or chelsea this season.

    please beat city in the community shield though.

    and yes, it is a legitimate trophy - if the cup winners cup is recognised, the community shield should be since it is more or less the same concept.

    Yeah your team was so good back then. Atm the english sides are improving though. We'll be around the level of Madrid soon.

    I'm hoping to see a 4-4-2 tbf since we'll have 2 top quality strikers.

    But Jose hasn't used 4-4-2 properly since his porto days. He did it a little at inter though.

    We'll be a bit more direct but not route one. Think we'll get a fullback and a central midfielder too.

    RB or LB? Still think you guys can get Shaw, doesn't seen to be much going in wrt to our bid for him. CM as in alongside Matic? Agree you lack a bit of that, he's great at breaking up playing and his passing game is on point could do with a BBM as well, anyone out there atm? Can't really think of one. Imagine if you guys bid for Ramsey... :lol:

    Just seen your top paragraph. Agree tbh, you did amazing considering you don't have a striker and Matic was cup tied to get to CL semi-final. With Costa next year you'll beast it and think you'll make final at least.

    Without bias then yes a Bayern vs Dortmund final and the Atletico vs Barca final is a bigger game than ours but really no one actually gives a **** about the La liga as much as they show to and hardly anyone ever mentions the German FA cup anyway.

    It's our Domestic cup so it's only natural to treat more seriously

    I really think wenger should go for pedro as I reckon he's severely underrated by the fandom. He wouldn't cost too much as well and would be a good fit at lw offering pace and directness as well as goals.

    I think if Arsenal sign 2 full backs, 1 holding midfielder and a sub striker then they will really compete next year for the title as Walcott is (in my opinion) one of the best players in the league.
    I don't get why Sagna is leaving. He isn't good enough to start anywhere else so it can only be about the money (which is fair enough.)

    Lol at the cup winners cup being mentioned in the same breath as the community shield.

    Cup winners cup was bigger than the UEFA cup and you actually got a place in the super cup by winning the competition. If you want to make the cups more valued you should bring back the cup winners cup and make it impossible to get into the europa league via league position then allow the winners of that competition a place in the CL group stages.

    Teams will be trying harder to win the cup I guarantee it.
