Proper game this - 1-1 after 18 mins.
Been a cracking game so far I've got spurs to win 2-1

I've managed to stop hating Chelsea since Terry lost his place and that cunt Mouhino moved on (unfortunately, he moved on to us ). Leaves me able to enjoy the match.
Oops penalty to Chelsea now that's my prediction scuppered

Not convinced there was contact for the penalty.
It was a terribly misjudged challenge but I agree with you. Until these fucking idiots bring in video refs though that kind of shit will keep happening. How can every other sport other than the biggest sport in the world be using it. Mental.
Only thing that's missing is some pushing and shoving and somebody getting sent off - ah, Costa's on!
Lulling them into a sense of superiority by handing them the semi, so we can take the EPL title.
Well played Pochettino, well played.
My thought was that it was a daft attempt at a tackle and should have been a penalty, but that Moses should also been sent off for denying himself a clear goalscoring opportunity. Diving over an outstretched leg to the ground when he could have easily kept upright is not sporting.
Did anyone else think that Wanyama out-Kanté-ed Kanté?
Thought Spurs midfield were superior for a good hour tbh
Poor Arsenal fans. Another FA Cup final to endure, thanks to that incompetent French buffoon the media have been trying to oust for years. My heart weeps for them.
No and No.
Moses was not in a goal scoring position and purely avoided an injury inflicting tackle that was rightfully penalised, the intention was there.
As for Wanyama and Kanté, both played excellent but one of them was on a 4-2 winning side, so have a guess which one was the best on the day.
David May has two Premier League medals.
Your argument is invalid.
There's no judgement here; I want you to think of this as a safe space. I'm just not sure football's a 'good fit' for you.
Fucking idiots indeed, what an improvement it would be.
I had to Google him so.....fair point
The name of the offence of diving is "simulation", so I'd like to see some kind of power given to referees to punish those players who exaggerate the impact of a foul. In this case, the first offence was the tackle by Son, and the second by Moses who, in my view, could've hurdled Son's tackle and remained on his feet. If Moses had scored the goal stands and Son is still booked. As Moses appeared to actively cause himself to go to ground, he was simulating the physical effect of Son's action, and so should have been booked. The net result is still positive for Chelsea, in that they get a penalty. This could go some way to eradicating the "if he feels contact he's entitled to go down" mentality.
Not even the "if he feels contact" element to be honest, as Moses did he saw the intention from Son, acted on it and won the pen.
Totally agree that the "simulation" issue has blighted the game for years. It's gotta be really difficult for Refs as they are now expected to be mind readers as well. As has been stated above by a couple of posters the Refs really could do with a bit of video help.
The purists may argue that football's not about that etc but football had changed dramatically so why not. Let Sky pay for it.
Has the concept of "winning" a penalty always been around? It infers that the defender isn't the sole cause.
I think it's crept in similar to diving and feigning injuries. Watch the Chelsea v Leeds Utd Cup final & replay to see how much football has changed.
One of the most brutal cup finals I have ever seen.Leeds at their best
Didn't some modern day ref analyse it and say he would have sent about seven players off?
Yes I remember something like that.doyouremember the another clip of Harris 'tackling' Best?
This one. Not nice.
A more civil encounter between two footballing greats
