FA Cup Final: In Quotes

If you were lucky enough to miss the FA Cup final today, here are some quotes from the commentators (John Motson and Mark Lawrenson)who seemed to be reading my mind throughout the entire game.

"This is probably the most boring 20 minutes we've seen all season..." - 20 mins

"Sorry we're a bit quiet, it's just that there's nothing to talk about..." - 30 mins

"Perhaps the ref is saying to him 'Can we have a game of football please?'" - 34 mins

"Maybe the grass is too long and it's affecting the play..." - 42 mins

"Strange that Joe Cole has been taken off, he seemed to be the only player having any impact" 46 mins

"75 minutes in and it's still nil-nil..." 75 mins

"JM - Have those few moments of improvement now faded?

ML - Yes I think they have. The closer it gets to 90 minutes, the more the players seem to be going for extra time" - 80 mins

"I must say I think Steve Bennet (The Referee!) has had a good game..." - 85 mins

"Other then a brief spell in the second half, the rest of the game has been rather lathergic." 87 mins

"JM - One minute to go until extra time.

ML - (Sarcastic tone) Can't wait..." 91 mins

"It's been a bit grueling I have to say." 92 mins

"Any body bored yet?" end of 1st period of Extra Time.

They said it all. And if you haven't heard, Chelsea won 1-0 with a last minute of Extra Time toe-poke from Diddier Drogba. This was yet another exhibition of the death of soccer and the stadium was the only interesting thing about it.

Just about puts the final in a nice boring nutshell. I never want to hear again that any cup final between any of the "big 4" is going to be a classic. We're all better off when it's David vs. Goliath like last year's West Ham-Liverpool thriller.

I couldn't agree more V. Hopefully we won't have another Big 4 match up in the fianl next year.

Just remember Brighton vs. Manchester United.
