    Glad I could watch that game live. Very happy for Wigan and their fans. Hope they stay up. Be nice if they can take points of Arsenal.

    Nice work Lampard, been a great legend for Chelsea.

    Great win for Wigan. That is what the FA Cup is for, underdog heroic feats and moments of history where a small club can taste glory for the fist time. Teams like Wigan come and go in the PL all the time, but silverware lasts forever and that memory can never be taken away from the fans.

    Plus Wigan get to play United in the Community Shield next season, which is good for them as they can potentially win another trophy.


    LOL @ City

    I barely noticed you accepting that envelope half way through the second paragraph. Well done.

    Who's it going to be, people? Arsenal or Spurs for the final CL spot?

    I hope Spurs, but I think it will be Arsenal.

    I wonder if it will be the end of Wenger if Arsenal don't make it. Would be crazy to see the two longest-serving & successful managers in the last two decades leave their respective teams at the same time.

    My money is on Spurs. I think they will win both and Newcastle will level with Arsenal next Sunday.

    I also think Chelsea finishes second. Edit- wait a minute, that won't happen. I retract. City may be roughin it, but they'll beat Reading.

    Don't Wigan get it for winning the FA Cup?

    Wigan get a Europa League spot, I think you get it for reaching the FA Cup Final not just winning.

    No, the winner gets it unless they've already qualified in which case the loser gets the F.A. Cup Europa spot.


    I think.

    I know Millwall got in just by being in the final against United, but it may be because United were already going to play in the CL next year like Roper said.

    Mancini's been sacked, apparently.

    no surprise there.

    amazing ending in the Watford Leicester game. Leicester miss the last minute penalty and Watford break and score. what is with these amazing finishes? we've had it in League 1 and now the Championship. Watford through to the final. Hopefully will meet Palace.

    Don't want Watford going up. They appear to be a bunch of Italian loanees. Nothing against loans, or Italians, but their status as a feeder club for Udinese (I think) means they're hardly building for the long term, and probably wouldn't be a productive member of the Premier League.

    Mourinho to Chelsea, Ancellotti to Madrid, Mancini to PSG?

    Inkeeping with my desire to see new teams, I'm hoping for Brighton

    1) Brighton
    2) Palace
    3) Watford

    is my desired choice. Palace for sentimental reasons only. Watford are just dull.

    1) Palace
    2) Brighton
    3) Watford

    Tottenham with a crucial win. Arsenal v Wigan will be interesting. Wigan will be charged. CHARGED.

    I think Arsenal have to play the two teams most likely to get the 3rd relegation spot. Wigan will either be CHARGED or HUNGOVER. Hopefully, charged.
