New Wembley, old fixture?

OK, so the first FA Cup final at the new Wembley Stadium will be between Chelsea and Manchester United. These are, without doubt, the two leading teams in the country right now. I’ve been cogitating for a while now and can’t make up my mind. Is this a hugely fitting final tie between two giants of English football or is it final proof that the FA Cup has little romance any more, that the semi-final draw could even have been -err- seeded (this is not an allegation) and that yet another game between these two is frankly, dull. Why bother with the earlier rounds because the dream is dead? Or is it that, kept apart by chance, our best sides have reached the final?

Anyway, what it does give us is great potential for yet more pathetic whingeing from Uncle Jose and altogether pithier comment from Sir Alex. Can’t wait. But in the meantime, what do you think about this cup final? Regular contributor Ariel, had this to say:

Well, considering the damn thing should never have been built in London in the first place, because the National Stadium should have been located in the Midlands in order to make it easier for as many people as possible to actually get to it and provide much-needed investment outside of our already-bloated capital; and considering the vast amounts of money that have been thrown at something managed by a load of lackadaisical foreigners whose hearts clearly weren’t in the job then yes, it seems that Manyoo vs Chelski is the perfect first FA Cup Final for the New Wembley… ;)

Mind you, I’m still smarting about Bury being chucked out on a technicality, and look what effect that had on the whole rest of our season… grumph…

A reasoned response if ever I read one… come on, people, respond.
