    Speaking of the away goals rule... looking mighty tense at Burnley tonight!

    Spurs will win, but at least they're not making it easy on themselves.

    You still have 30 mins and you only have to score once, twice to avoid penalties.

    Spurs will pull it off.

    This is your negative reinforcement thing again, isn't it. Laughing

    deserved everything we've got. Should have gone more attacking at 1-0. Even with Pav on we've still got 7 defenders out there. We've been the better team for 1/4 of this tie. That's it.

    This is what we get for not winning 5-1 at home...

    Annoying thing is that, althugh we've played terribly today, we've had about half a dozen great chances.

    But Taraabt over GDS??? Serously???

    I think if we'd had another leg at the Emirates we'd probably have managed a draw too, at LEAST! Razz

    Still think there's a Spurs goal coming.

    Jesus feckin' christ that was close.

    If Jensen doesn't get man of the match then something's wrong, 'cause for all our disappointing (that's putting it mildly) play we created some damn good chances. They were better defensively, worked more in midfield, and their strikers were more mobile than ours. They fought better and some of that bunch of crap will not be playing at Old Trafford this weekend.

    When our best players were Bale (excellent attacking play when he came on) and Zokora (Mr rugby tackle, mr lets-go-wander actually being our best defender) you know something's wrong.

    And applause for Dawson. Asked how he felt after getting to wembley, first word out of his mouth there - DISAPPOINTMENT. Absolutely right, and the right attitude. Not letting the fact they're through cloud the fact that that was shocking.

    JK, I hope this isn't one of your childish, I'm saying Spurs will win because I want them to loose posts.

    Garibaldi, if you lose I'm going to drag up every single one of your we're already in the final posts and give you a well deserved piss taking.

    No I genuinely knew Spurs would come back in the last minute, they always do when it matters.

    Time to really put myself in the firing line...

    Dawson gets a crack this year - Woody's out. Not good news.

    The teams in full for today's game are;

    Man Utd:

    Foster,
    O'Shea, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra,
    Ronaldo, Scholes, Gibson, Nani,
    Tevez, Welbeck

    Subs: Kuszczak, Anderson, Giggs, Park, Vidic, Possebon, Eckersley

    Tottenham:

    Gomes,
    Corluka, Dawson, King, Assou-Ekotto,
    Lennon, Jenas, Zokora, Modric,
    Bent, Pavlyuchenko

    Subs: Alnwick, Bale, Bentley, Huddlestone, Gunter, Taarabt, O'Hara

    Doesn't look good for Spurs but then the same was true last year and they have a habit of surprising you. Since this is their last chance to get into Europe next year that might be enough.

    Yeah, the lack of any striker on the bench, particularly after Obika's excellent performance in midweek, is a worry, but Bale, Dawson and O'Hara, who all missed out last year, all get a chance this time out.

    Interesting to see Annick, Taraabt and Eckersley, all fringe players who got a runout in the cup meeting, all on the respective benches this time.

    I do think t's telling that, despite the pledge to "stick with the kids", now United have made the final again, Rio plays in the competition for the first time since they last won in...

    btw, one bit of maths I realised yesterday, for the premiership era, if we win today, we become the first side outside the top 4 to win 3 trophies. Big IF, but so was last year Wink

    Getting into Europe isn't much of an incentive though because, when these teams get into Europe, they try their best to get knocked out by fielding weakened teams.

    Bit of a strange one the whole "getting into Europe" thing, I hear it all the time but it appears that this season, Villa and Spurs would rather not have been in it.

    In our case it was because 1. we had certain positions we were so weak in (coughleftmidfieldcough), 2. 6 games in 17 days including a domestic final, 3. the disaster that would have been relegation on all fronts being greater that the glory of wining the trophy and 4. the best signings we could make were cuptied or too late.

    And dear god how Lennon isn't at least back in the england squad is beyond me. Yes the last ball still needs work, but he's proving again that when he gets moving it takes someting special to stop him.

    From a neutral's perspective this game is incredibly dull. Doesn't feel like a cup final at all.

    Think Spurs are going to sneak it, possibly on penalties, more likely before Extra Time.

    It's matching last year's final - more chances as time passes, we come into it more over time but get caught on the break a few times in exchange...remember Drogba at the end last year too?

    Pav had a stinker. I could see Bentley on soon to create a few more chances.

    And dear god, the St David's day/Giggs comment...that just deserves Bale to come on and score dead ball after Gunter wins thefree kick, just to make them look like real ass ass
