Sutton United have won dozens of trophies.

Just my little joke 😁

Police insist the FA Cup Final should kick off at 3pm instead of the scheduled 5.30. Brilliant decision. That's the way it should be. The rest of the World will buy it anyway.

And let's hope they also bring back Arthur Caiger

My Trac'or Boys are on fire! Another cracking away result at Barnsley (who had won their last 8 matches at home!) of 0 - 3, and now 12 games without defeat.

The Derby is due off @ 4.30 so, unless they change that too, they will clash.

Edit Just been notified they have changed it - to 1.30.

And It's a Cup Final Knockout

What a pity Chelsea didn't employ Frank Lampard a little earlier. We could have been enjoying watching them in the Championship next season.

Try again, bearing in mind what we were talking about - FA Cup Final

Tomorrow it's exactly 100 years since Bolton won the first ever Wembley FA Cup final

Gone down in history as the "White Horse Cup Final" because of mounted policeman George Scorey on his white horse Billie, which was used to control the crowd that had spilled onto the field of play.

Not a lot of people know that.............

Maybe not mathematically but, if I were a betting man, I would say they are.

Just saying, now they've reverted to the proper kick off time, they should bring back It's a Cup Final Knockout (but maybe without Stuart Hall) along with all the other fun & games that used to keep us amused in the run-up to the match. Together with cameras on the coaches to Wembley, interviewing the players on the pitch in their new suits and yes, of course, your community singing.

Ah, with you 🙂
