United v  Villa nil nil after Extra Time with 2 weakened sides.

Yawn
Your cynicism is heartwarming.  ;D
Can you think of the last exciting Mickey Mouse cup final? I cant
Chelsea's 3-2 over Liverpool a few years back wasn't the worst game I've ever seen.....

I think you're pondering _FA_ Cup finals of late.

50cm of snow here now.  And it started again about half an hour ago.

Thing is, the grounds themselves are playable (undersoil heating and what not), it's the motorways and roads surrounding them that are ridiculously unsafe.  Not to mention a lot of councils are running low on salt and grit.

That makes no more sense than blaming global warming for every warmer than average day (which the PM did in December, showing that he's a muppet at times too).

*On average* it's getting warmer, as shown by the noughties being the warmest decade on record and 2009 the second warmest year on record. There are fluctuations but the trend is clear enough. [/rant]

That penalty was so soft I thought Ben Williams was in charge.

Terrible decision
Garbage decision. City pressed hard, but we deserved at LEAST a draw and on the balance of chances created the win. F**king Shay Given is just outstanding.
Personally, I blame Evra... Any national team frog player and Given is bound to have an absolute bloody blinder.
:headbutt:

Re Williams, how poor was that. I'm no Fyfe fan... but way to kick the reds when they're down Wiliiams.
::)
