Got to be better than traveling with loads of Palace and Chelsea, surely?
It’s the kick off time that stinks. I’ll be at Watford anyway, however I still have love for The FA Cup and would like to watch it.

I assume the normal blackout rule for TV doesn't count as all Football League matches are on Friday not Saturday ?

Surely not the case? If so, it really wouldn’t surprise if Football League matches were all moved from 3pm Saturday to bypass the blackout rules?

Easter weekend, so I’m assuming FL clubs are playing Good Friday and Easter Monday?

Yes apart from those who Sky have picked for Saturday
So they are playing Saturday and Tuesday night

And our friends from the Cottage think playing at 8 on Friday is too late so have also moved their Holiday Monday game to Tuesday night

The normal blackout has been suspended for Easter Saturday.

'slow
4:45pm on a Saturday is a stupid time for the Cup Final to kick off. Purely to get more US TV money

The usual hordes of Chelsea at Baker Street seem to be up for it. “We’ve won it all” their preferred song for now. We will see. On the basis of their relative dignity or lack of when playing us would like Klopp to win this.

I've said this before, but when Wembley was rebuilt they took into account the position they sun would be at 3.00 in May so that it wouldn't cast huge shadows on the pitch, but I don't think there has been an FA Cup Final at 3.00pm since.

The FA Cup Final should be the final game of the English season with a 3.00pm kick off.

Might be the small minority here, but I actually find the ‘new’ Wembley a bit soulless. Obviously bigger stadiums can suffer from that, but the atmosphere can be a bit dull

The old Wembley might have been a bit of a dump at the end, but it said everything you need to know about the FA Cup Final, with the Twin Towers.

Scousers, innit 🤷‍♂️ They'll also boo the National Anthem because of their anti-establishment leanings. They're a weird bunch. I got tickets to the league Cup final a few years ago, Liverpool vs Citeh - I found it genuinely uncomfortable as a member of the Armed Forces to be surrounded by a bunch of pricks booing the National Anthem.

Spot on. I much prefer the millennium stadium. The stands are more on top as appose to an open bowl

I didn't watch any of it, would rather have stuck my head in a hornet's nest while getting pissed on by a bear. Liverpool won whoopty f***ing do.
