So-o-o-o-o! Phew!!!!! We made it!!!!!! And once again, we did it the hard way. EXTRA TIME & PENALTIES!!!!!
For cryin’ out loud, when are the lads gonna stop putting us through the mill, like this??
Anyhoo, we’re through now. Ready to face the winners of the Blue & White Sh*te, or Man Sh*tty, on February 28th (that’s the PL derby foo-barred!!!). Personally, I’d take the Toffees, although we have shown that we’re capable of beating the New Monies.
The thing is, and this has been touched on by Koped49, Red Uncle & DB-99 on the Stoke match post stream, we’re at a 90,000 seater stadium. Yet, the finalists only get 31,000 seats each. This leaves 28,000, which either team would easily clear! Of those 28,000, though, about 8-10,000 are divvied up between the other 90 FL teams, who have taken part. The thing that gets me is that I don’t understand the allocation process. Apparently, a team knocked-out in the 1st round gets about 2 or 3 tickets, but I can’t see the likes of Manure, Chelski, & Arsenal settling for that many. Can you?
Then you’ve got the other 18-20,000!
Some of those will go to the ‘Wembley for Life’ mob, who bought themselves season tickets, when the new Wembley opened.
But, there can’t be that many of them!!
So, let’s just say for arguments sake, that there’s about 5,000 of them.
That leaves 13-15000 tickets going to ‘Sponsors’! The brown nose, sh*t-eating types who have no affiliation to either team, and they’re just there for the free ride!!
How is this fair?
It isn’t! It’s just b*llsh*t!!!!
