Why?  I lived in Leeds for a year

I pity you for that... however i picked you as a Leeds with Rio type...

Actually I loved Leeds. Fantastic city! It's not what it used to be, its been rejuvinated, and now its one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe. No joke.

They say that about Newcastle and Glasgow too these days but I didnt buy into it when Ive visited them... always be just another town north of the gap to me ... FWIW Leeds hasnt been in Div 2 since 1990, Im thinking you meant League One (in my mind they still in Div2 but Im oldschool like that)... nitpicking I know but since you so good at it, if you live by the sword you die by it right?
Funny how you support teams that have been managed by ex Arsenal traditional types (GG yet again and O'leary)....

Personally I find its much easier to stick to the one team in the country I was born and grew up in and one in the country i live in now and sod the rest....

I do have 2 teams only. TFC and Arsenal.

But everyone, even you, has soft spots for other teams for various reasons. Doesnt mean you support them, just that you like them, the way thay play, etc etc. Leeds is a team I follow, I look at their results and where they are in the table and hope they get promoted. If that makes me a supporter of Leeds, then fine.

And yes, you're right, although colloquially many people in England refer to league one as the second division...never really figured out why but it rubbed off on me.

As for city of Leeds, many people who I know have also been amazed at how its changed for the better from past years. I would recommend going for anyone who likes to party (most nightclubs per capita in England) and who likes Indian food (best in England hands down). Also the Royal Armouries museum is absolutely brilliant!

Never been to Glasgow or Newcastle so can't comment.

I must admit, it was a master stroke by JT to select Drogba for the starting 11.

You have to be a complete numpty NOT to select Drogs for FA Cup final.

But since you love JT that much, here is another pic for you:

Really?

I'd say failing to drink out of a cup since what 2005, is more of a "drinking fail" :lol:

Not really. But nice try.

But I don't think its proper for the manager to be attempting to drink from the cup on the pitch, surely he should leave that to the players no? Any guesses on JT's team sheet for the UCL final?

I would add that there is more to success than just trophies. For example, LFC and Chelsea have won trophies this season. But if The table stays and Chelsea lose to Bayern, Arsenal's season is more successfull than both of them. UCL qualification is a trophy. It's more valuable than the FA cup and Carling cup, for several reasons, which are obvious so I wont get into it. But its why they are considering giving a UCL place to the FA cup winners to "bring the old luster back" to the FA cup. I'd take UCL over FA cup any day, and so would the Chelsea fans I was talking to at the pub on the weekend. the domestic cups aren't what they used to be.

Right, Cup win is not important... to a team that doesn't win it, then it suddenly changes when you win it. :facepalm:

3rd spot for team like Arsenal is a successful year? Really? Wenger will disagree, you should be challenging for league glory and playing in Cup finals.

Never said its not important. But priority has to go to finishing top 3 or 4. Money, prestige and players. Top players need to play in UCL or they will leave/not sign for your club.

And Wenger would agree, 3rd place is a successfull year. That was the goal for this season. When we lost Cesc, Nasri, and Wilshere we were never going to win the league. Especially starying 17th place after first several games. Of course Arsenal want to win trophies, but have to be realistic this season. And if you ask Gooners if they would rather win an FA cup or finish in UCL places, the vast majority would say UCL places.

Lets agree to disagree.
Winning is a priority, always was, always will.
How many players left Le Arse to "win Cups" ? I Can think of 2, at least.

So yes, it's important to finish 2,3,4th from financial standpoint (and of course some bragging rights), but it does not trump a Cup win. Why? record books dont care about 3rd or 4th team, only winners get their names engraved.

No one left Arsenal to win an FA cup. Nasri left for money, Henry left for the Champions league...and money. Cesc left to go back to his boyhood club. Adebayor-money, who are these 2 you are thinking of??

Players care about 3 things, Champions league, the League Title, and money. DiMatteo will be and other chelsea managers have been fired for "just winning the FA cup". Yeah the FA cup is an important trophy still, its something that adds to the tally, but its impact on the progress of a club is of little relevance when compared to champions league qualification.
