    I don't really put all that much into the CC, but I can't blame fans for being happy.. Nor do i begrudge the players celebrating. I liked that Arsenal players had rather muted reactions to the two friendly "trophies" won this summer... unlike Liverpool lol.

    What I meant is that I haven't seen anyone trying to use this as some indicator of what the season will be, positive or negative. I'm sure there are Gooners doing that, but most I've seen have been "Hey cool, we won something" rather than "OMG WE BE WINNING THE LEAGUE AFTER THIS!!!" Then again, I do tend to follow fairly grounded, reasonable Arsenal supporters and clearly not all of us are.
    Must specify, I believe he said major. Yeah some united fans did proclaim it to be a treble but like I said there are always a few fans like that.


    Chelsea were different from last season, they definitely missed costa's aggression in this match. They missed Hazards ability to make something out of nothing. From the sounds of it Conte is not happy with the signings. I think Conte will not be Chelsea manger by the end of the season, he will either be sacked or he will quit but who do chelsea get?

    I'd have a laugh at a Gooner calling it a major trophy too. Its about as minor as a competitive trophy gets.

    Not certain what to expect out of Chelsea this season. They have added some quality players but also lost some quality. Can be hard for a manager to get the squad motivated after a title win, and they might have a lot of focus on the Champions League. I definitely don't think the title win will buy Conte a lot of extra time if Chelsea are disappointing - Abramovich doesn't roll that way.

    You're allowed up to 6 subs in the CS I believe.

    Needed Arsenal to win in normal time for £350, wanks.

    And he scores goals...!
