Right then, this Saturday

Post by Birdman » Thu May 17, 2018 12:14 pm

Will you be glued to the box watching the shenanigans at Windsor or will you be trying to avoid the goings on?
I can categorically state that I will do 'all' that I can to avoid watching any of it.
I wish the couple well but all the overblown hype on the telly, in the papers (multi-page pull outs) and internet hasn't endeared the occasion to me.

I only have one watching target for Saturday and that’s the Cup Final and even that is not as interesting as it used to be sadly.

I couldn't imagine anything worse than watching Man Yoo & Chelsea play chess, I love the FA cup & this is the final I was dreading in the semis, taking the famleee bowling. 8)

Golf in the morning and weather dependent activity in the afternoon... little interest in Chels/Man U unless I am in with nothing else to do.... sad, how times change

I’m not a fan of any wedding. They normally get in the way of football, and the only one where it might result in a national holiday and a day off work and they put it on a Saturday. Poor show.
It won’t last either.

Off to watch rugby, Wasps play Saracens, 12.30ko. Then off to the pub, with a mild interest in the FA Cup. I have the sad record of watching every cup final since Man City v Leicester in 1969

All weddings should be on a Wednesday so it doesnt interfere with people having fun at the weekends.. As if anyone is interested in this one.. It just causes problems as you know blokes are more interested in football than pretending to be interested in a load of nonsense..

Staying in Vienna at the moment but on Saturday will pop across the border to Hungary and the town of Szombathely to watch Haladas play Ujpest. Kick off is 4pm English time so will miss the wedding. If theory is true that the FA Cup Final is shown throughout the world, I might pick up the second half in a bar.

Working in the garden all morning and early afternoon doing some landscaping, so having a break to watch the F.A.Cup will be an excuse to down tools during the hottest part of the day-what ever the quality of the match. Not interested in the wedding, apart from hoping they have a lovely day.

Will be watching Aussie Rules on BT sport 3 on Sat morning then off in my taxi for the rest of the day.
The only good thing about the cup final is the trains will bring Chelsea fans back for us to pick up from the station.

Royal wedding, rather watch a cow munch grass, saying that, good luck to anyone who’s getting married but not interested, will watch the cup final as it’s a traditional thing, missed just the one since watching my first one in 78 and that was Chelsea v Liverpool in 2012 as it ridiculously clashed with the final league fixtures that year and I was coming back from Crewe v shots!

Sounds just about perfect!

Talking of the cup final, do you remember this from the '80's that was shown as part of the build up to one of the finals?

If you're of the politically correct persuasion then this may not be for you.

That was very funny Birdman, comedy from the past is definitely better than most of the so called comedy you get now.
