    Or what it means to the fans of a club like Hull City who have waited 110 years to make it to the Final, & whose squad value is dwarfed by that Arsenal.

    He didn't head it clear.

    It's a hoax.

    The recordings are doctored versions of other mashups of our recent games against the Gooners, projected onto a greenscreen representation of Wembley Stadium.

    Collective hypnotic hysteria accounts for the so called 'recollections' of the fans who were there.

    Check the record books, we won the final 3-0.






    That's how I cope with the misery of having my hopes and dreams brutally destroyed anyway.

    That was as poor a performance as the one at Derby was good.

    Everyone saying "Just need to keep it tight for the first 20" - FAIL

    'Just need to keep it down to one till half time so Brucey can sort em out' - FAIL

    Most uncomfortable second half seen at KCOM until this season's humiliations.

    Gibbs goal line clearance won the cup for Arsenal not Ramsey.
    I never thought I would ever see City play at Wembley , but now it's 4 times and one an FA cup final too.

    Yeah, bit like Scotland's number one. Never could save a dead ball shot from distance.

    Off topic...
    But did anyone watch Euro96. England vs Scotland?
    Tell you what England were dogtod that day. Could hardly string three passes together. Jocks were the better side. Good job they had a s**t forward line.
    The Gazza goal reeked of class, but he did little else for 89mins.

    He was alright when the dead ball shot was from 12 yards.

    I watched it last night and I'd completely forgotten how dreadful we were that day, apart from the Gazza goal, we were appalling.

    He always seemed to stutter from distance e.g. Nevas springs to mind.
    Great from close up, ie little reaction time.

    The train home afterwards with Arsenal fans lording it up with a continuous barrage of "10 year drought" comments. Try 110 ****ing years mate was the reply. And "silverware, we don't care..." at full volume.

    But I did care (and do care). Still haven't watched so much as a highlight since the day.

    so called arsenal fans who hadn't been to the game, standing on the bridge over Wembley way, giving it large. Hated them ever seen.

    The absolute worst was Paul 'The Guvnor' Ince.

    Receive ball - miscontrol or mispass - tackle- foul- snarl at ref

    And REPEAT

    That's true. He was ****e. Southgate in midfield was a waste of time. So much for super Terry Veg. England only picked up when Redknapp came on, had ten minutes on top and scored twice in that time.
    How Spain didn't beat England in the Q/F still baffles me today.

    Try watching ENG-BEL from Italia 90 when Platt scores a great goal on 119 mins,

    They comfortably controlled that game and we were a distant second best.

    All overshadowed by that late goal....
