Wembley beckons if we put in the right performance with the right attitude and belief.
Chelsea can be got at and if we keep it very tight at the back there is no reason why we can't go through.
No game the weekend so no excuses for the team he can put out.

It`s one of those games which are hard to predict but hopefully our boys who know that Mkhtaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are coming will run their hearts out to show AW he can`t drop them. In future to save time and space I will refer to Aubameyang as PEA. I remember the days when footballers were called Smith, Jones or Brown.

Alan Smith , Cliff Jones and Laurie Brown remember them all.

This could go either way, we won't know until the teams are announced and just as important the benches . Micky cant play so no change there then but selection without Theo too will be interesting.First team or not ?

Monreal MOTM for me.
He'd be one of the first names down on my first choice 11

In total agreement Thynker a real pro who always puts a shift in.
Much prefer him when he plays left back or wingback as he has the engine to get up and down.
Solid second half performance gave us the deserved victory though I would be disappointed if I was a Chelsea fan on how they played .
They never really threatened us in the second half and we comfortably held on.
It got better when Enery went into the centre of a back three as this stopped them attacking the middle where they were having success in the first half.
Still think Xhaka and Iwobi are the weak links as they kept giving the ball away.
But the main thing is we are through to another final and when all said and done it's an achievement .

I've watched our first goal from last night about 35 times. I'm still laughing out loud!
