Not 1 of the finals we’ve been in has been easy. I mean you don’t expect it to be but out of 7 so far you’d think at least 1 the cigars would be out on 75 mins

Another heart stopping night in store lads. I just want to relax, I’ve been eating my hands since August ! ;D

Get your cigars ready then rushyman...this is going to be the one!

Fuck what I would not give to be coasting at 60-70mins for a change. I can't remember the last time I watched a full game with no pressure on it throughout the 90 mins. Excluding Wolves since by 60mins there was nothing to play for.

Or just any of the finals we’ve been in generally in the last 20 years.

long long time ago now

Not really mate!

We got a first half goal and then dealt with a barrage of United attacks before Owen finished them off. That was far from an easy afternoon!

Was thinking this the other day - anyone under the age of 40 would never have seen us be ahead in a European Cup Final, despite winning one in recent memory.

Great point that about us never having an easy final. We probably never will unfortunately  ;D

They've literally all been quite tight, Neal's late pen against Gladbach to finish them off, 78 and 81 being decided by a single goal, 84 and 05 on pens. Even in the UEFA cup, despite having it basically all tied up in 73, Gladbach fought back, and it was just as tight in 76 and 2001.

Perhaps Newcastle in 74 was as comfortable as we've ever got, but it did take us about an hour to score the first. I hope for our sanity and health we run away with it on June 1  ;D

Should probably just resign ourselves to the fact that despite being the better team it’ll no doubt be close and nervy. Any improvement on that is a bonus for our collective health.

It'll be interesting to see. We don't do easy finals. Even Cardiff took us to penalties when we last won a trophy.

Spurs are a good team and their style is very similar to ours. It could literally come down to individual performances. Unlike the bookies, I dont think we are as strong favorites, but favorites nonetheless. All that said, we should be winning this. *touch wood*

Don't like saying it, this feels like a must win game. Until we get over the line in one of these, the doubts in the players minds will grow.

Its a cup final, of course its a must win game. When in the world did we ever enter a final without it being a must win?
