Think it's a no win situation tomorrow, if we win it'll probably secure 2 more years of groundhog, if they win it will ruin all of our days/weeks.

Taking my son to his first cup final, looking forward to that part of the day.

Enjoy it tomorrow and be safe.

So..a MASSIVE game for Rob Holding!! He's going to have to do a lot of running alongside the BFG and Nacho (assuming Mustafi isn't starting). I just hope he knows when to boot it out rather than try to play a clever run from defence.

I re-watched the Ray Parlour final at about midnight last night. What a great game.

I really hope the Arsenal win today.

No Cech and no holding midfielder to protect a makeshift defence? Ludicrous

Monreal has been fantastic.
Chelsea haven't shown up yet.

Got away with the handball...


Need to make these chances count

A magnificent performance so far.
Why can't we have more of this more often...

Really need to take our copious chances

Giroud should never start up front... pace is the answer to how we play

Welbeck been fantastic. Working his socks off

Where's that level of performance been since October? What a masterstroke to play with the BFG with Holding and Monreal and have no defenders on the bench! Let's do that every week!! I'm buzzing right now!

That type of performance comes out now and again.
We saw it in the 2nd leg first half before the Bayern collapse.

It's because we know the team has the ability that the fleeting glimpses of it makes us all so frustrated.

What a great day that was, son loved it, game was fantastic, players turned up, goes to show that they can do it when the trophy is on the line, makes the season even more frustrating but that's for another day.

To a man, they were all fantastic but Mertersacker and Welbeck deserve special praise, not a fan of Mertersacker but he was outstanding, even more so when you consider he's not played all season, Welbeck was a man possessed, set the mood from the front and honestly think he is one of the main reasons we had such a good first half, worked his socks off and others went with him, not to put Giroud down but don't think the result would have been the same had he started over Welbeck, defending from the front was a big feature, playing in tight spaces was another.

Pray Wenger sees this as a chance to go out on a high and not drag out the inevitable, don't think he'll get this chance again, hope everyone had a good day.

I went to Wembley expecting to see Chelsea v Arsenal and instead saw Chelsea v Barcelona

Agree with Mr.G Mertesacker was magnificent my Man of the Match

So glad that so many of us, including me, got the expected outcome wrong. They played brilliantly and didn't drop their heads after Chelski equalised.

Why oh why haven't we seen this level of desire throughout the season?

Our centre backs yesterday were magnificent.

Mertesacker's positioning and marshalling of the other two was fantastic.
Holding goes from strength to strength and is a future captain

Monreal has been a revelation as the left side of a defensive 3.

Great stuff all round.
