By all accounts, I didn't miss much. Whalley's World of Sport has a six word summary of the match: "DROGBA scored. Chelsea won. Terrible match."
Shot to Nothing has FA Cup Final in quotes from the commentators John Motson and Mark Lawrenson
“Sorry we’re a bit quiet, it’s just that there’s nothing to talk about…” - 30 minsBut I think the best comment has to be Whalley:
“Maybe the grass is too long and it’s affecting the play…” - 42 mins
“Any body bored yet?” end of 1st period of Extra Time.
Today's FA Cup final was the closest I have ever seen a football match get to an episode of Hollyoaks. If you've never seen Hollyoaks (you've probably never lived with a woman under 35), it consists entirely of a lot of very glamorous people constantly arguing with each other about nothing.If you want to see some real football, featuring Stan Mortenson and Stanley Matthews, here is a Pathe film about the 1948 Cup Final when Man-U beat Blackpool. There are some great moments here "Sun warms the stadium as 100,000 spectators settle themselves for an afternoon's enjoyment as the King greets the players with a friendly handshake", "Blackpool kick orf" etc.
