    I think this deserves its own thread. Im biased of course. Got my ticket, opted for the top end of the £45 bracket in the lower tier. Going to be a brilliant day, nobody can call the result, dead even for me. Whoever says Watford or on the other shoe Wolves being easy is an idiot. Wembley will be a sea of Yellow and Old Gold and it will be a spectacular site. Good luck Watford..

    Good luck mate. Should be a tight game. Nuno surely wont make the same mistake again by having just Moutinho and Neves in centre mid against Doucoure and Capoue. What a mismatch that was. And you definitely wont have an off day like you did against us in that game too.

    I expect it to be 2-1 either way

    We play with Dendocker sitting and Neves and Moutinho slightly forward when on the ball, all three will sit behind when defending. So we'll not be as open this time round.

    Didn't help at Molineux that Watford leathered in a second 40 seconds after the first. It went from a fairly even start to game over. After that we were desperate and Watford ran the show. Think Watford exposed the weaknesses of that formation and ultimately led to what we play now.

    Nothing against Wolves, particularly Nino (man crush), but hope Watford spank them. Best mates a Watford fan and they’ve been excellently run as a club for a while now x

    Wolves sold out - we have about 2/3k left .

    Neither are much of a surprise.

    That is still 10k above our home average .

    Winners qualify, runners up don't.

    If Manchester City win the cup then 7th go in to the Europa League qualifiers.

    When did this happen? We lost to Arsenal in 2014 we got into Europe - due to us being runners up, and them already qualified for Europe.

    Year after - don't think Palace got into Europe after losing to Man U in 2016.

    Wolves haven't been to be a Wembley showpiece game for nearly 40 years, they were always going to sell out comfortably. This is our 3rd in 6 years and I think we've done well to shift 30k.

    They changed it the year after. Aston Villa lost the 14/15 final which meant Southampton qualified for the Europa League at their expense.

    If you like conspiracies you might suggest that the FA / UEFA didn't like little old Hull qualifying for Europe and Manchester United (7th in 13/14) missing out. Not that I'm suggesting anything :whistle

    I'm so excited and shitting at the same time. I really want to see Wolves in a FA Cup final. I'll give up walking to win it. This is such a tough fixture.

    Watford fans - Gomes or Foster to be in goal?

    Probably will be Gomes which isn't a bad thing but some are saying should we play Foster.

    Foster. Hes our best keeper. I love Gomes but sentiment goes out of the window here.
