    Andrew,
    Clattenberg was a once promising official who was practically banished for, shall we say, trying to referee the game. Once he toed thePGMO line he’s got the top assignments. I don’t think he’ll try anything because we can’t win the league and CL is assured for next year.

    Half time at Wembley and TO THE ARSENAL ONE NIL. Danielle Carter with a magnificent curler from the left side high into the right hand top corner of the net. Unstoppable. Well done Ladies.

    Arsenal using strength to prevent Chelsea from gaining advantage but ref calling the the tackles foul. Amazing how the same tackles made by Chelsea in the league are not called.

    I just looked up the Guardian commentary on the game. Bunch of MCP at the Guardian. Apparently the Womens FA Cup game needed “validation” by two men before the game.

    I was looking for attendance information. Apparently there is about 50,000 at the game, which is a big improvement over last year (37000).

    COYLG!

    Oh, apparently Alan Smith is happy that the PA system is turned up so loud, as he left his hearing aid at home today.

    Crowd around 32,000. Not 50,000!!!

    Arsenal tiring after being all over the pitch. Wembley always tires players because of the grass size. Cards being brandished by the ref. now as players make mistakes & some just go down at the slightest touch.

    Arsenal Ladies holding on as Oshoala is subbed & Katie Chapman is swearing her off the field. Poor refereeing – Chapman should have been booked. Arsenal defending up high & pressuriseing the ball so Chelsea losin the ball easily.

    Mirror is reporting 32,912 for attendance. Apparently a new record. Well, if last year was 37,000, I don’t know how that works. So it must be that last year wasn’t 37k, but something closer to 30k. And I never looked it up.

    I thought the refereeing was typical for a womens game. Two bad decisions early on (a wrong offside & A high boot) and a probable handball in the area later. I wouldn’t bother with players bad mouthing each other, the ref would run out of space on the card sheet.
    These games can’t be that hard to control. They’re slow with hardly any foul play and the only free kicks usually arise from technical transgressions, but they still get them wrong. The standard in the world cup was appalling.
    Anyway, we won the cup again. Well done to the ladies who keep our name up there.

    I won’t have time to write a proper review of the Ladies 14th FA Cup final victory till after the Villa game tomorrow and am doing this on my phone so please excuse spellings etc.

    Pesto Losa had clearly prepared a game plan for this one and the Ladies delivered it to perfection. We were direct with Carter on the left and Ashaola on the right being given early balls and they used their pace and trickery to terrorise the Chelsea back four. Carter so nearly scored in the first minute, a lob only just landing on the food of the net with the keeper stranded.

    Chelsea were given no time on the ball, as soon as they received a pass there were two or sometimes three Arsenal players harrying them and more often than not winning the ball back.

    The only goal of the game was scored by Dani Carter. A quick diagonal ball from midfield, expert control and z driving run into the left side of the penalty area and a fabulous shot high into the right hand side of the goal. Always going in never going to be saved. Would have beaten most of the PL keepers it was that good.

    Arsenal had all of the best chances and really should have added further goals. Oshaola with an embarrassing mis- kick when a solid contact would have gone in and a couple of One-on-ones with the keeper which she would have wished to do better with.

    When Chelsea attacked our defenders were always there in numbers, either with a block or denying time and space. There were only two or three clear chances all game and none came to anything significant. In truth Chelsea never really looked likely to score and ‘squeaky bum’ time never really came.

    It was a dominant performance from a team that virtually everyone (including myself) had as second favourites for the win.

    A great performance which should renew the player’s belief in each other for the rest of the season.

    Well done Pedro, well done team and especially well done to Dani Carter awarded the player of the match award. Well done as well to the crowd and Wembley staff, the afternoon was far more pleasurable in terms of atmosphere and stewarding than has been the case for the Men’s semi finals and final I have attended in the last two years.

    Finally, two games so far this week and two good wins, let’s make it three tomorrow

    Congratulations ladies.
    As for tomorrow’s game, if we have a healthy lead, we may even get something I think I remember as being termed a penalty. But, unless Arteta plays, don’t think many of our players will remember how to take one.
    But should the game go towards half time as a stalemate, or , heaven forbid, Villa take the lead, expect the usual PGMOL shite.

    After having absorbed the scathing criticism of Mark Clattenburg, I can’t help feeling that he will do us no favours tomorrow. Referees are only human, enjoy a bit of publicity and will have read the Unknown pages with increasing chagrin.
    I question whether the timing of this criticism, however justified, should be published by an Arsenal-supporting site before a game.
    As I say, I fully accept the facts and figures produced by Walter and others, but it just seems to me that we are inviting anti-Arsenal bias by antagonising match officials unnecessarily before kick-off.
    Just a thought.

    I see at least one medja outlet, “predicting” more anti-Wenger protests tomorrow (well, tomorrow for me anyway).

    What is just as likely as them being able to predict something like this, is that they have already printed up a bunch of protest material, and have arranged to meet “protestors” inside the stadium to pass over the banners and what not.

    That’s called, making the news.

    @ nicky -May 14, 2016 at 10:51 pm -” ….and will have read the Unknown pages…” ? Like most , I was under the impression that the refs are all legally blind .
    Does Untold Arsenal have Braille ?

    @ Gord -May 15, 2016 at 3:28 am – Hope that those poster boys and bannermen have something humourous to exhibit . You know , to get the crowd in high spirits and good cheer !

    I hope these anti Wenger protesters talk to Aston Villa supporters & realise what top 4 is as opposed to bottom. Basically knowing your Arse from your Elbow.

    I just want Arsenal to win this last game & celebrate the Ladies 14th FA cup & our great season under the great Wenger in ‘his’ paid for stadium.

    The players will more likely be cautious. None of them, including AV players want to be injured before their hols.

    But we should win this even with the “ref”, although they may well have acheived their goal this season (Leicester winning PL) and are in neutral mode again(when were they ever?).

    Utd can’t catch us and Manc will only go above us if they win and we lose. But Manu may win FA final although i really hope for CP to do the job on them.

    Is it not strange that the top 4 as it stands have scored around twice the number of goals than those from 5th place down? Well Arsenal only 1 and one half more.
