Pre watching the 2012 FA cup final build-up right now I have to say i’m really looking forward to this final today. Not supporting either team and being a neutral its actually a nice situation to be in to appreciate finals without the added pressure of your team being in the final. Not that I’m saying I wouldn’t want to be there of course I would but it’s a nice match to watch at the end of the season as a football fan.
Both teams have had massive successes in the FA cup and have great history coming into the final.
I am hoping they both play an open flowing attacking game and don’t try to con the ref with silly dives that seem to have increased into the premiership this year.
My tip is for Chelsea to win today. I just think overall they have had the stronger season and while yes they still have one eye on the league and champions league final to think about. Players like Lampard and Terry who won’t play in the final in Germany this is effectively their only final this year so will want to prove themselves today. Also take into account the recent defeat at home to Newcastle in mid week Chelsea will want to get back on track with a good final win.
Liverpool however have had a poor season this year despite the league cup final win over Cardiff and I just can’t see them being strong enough to win today but only time will tell.
