Can you name the teams, who've won two or more FA Cup's?

I got ten teams right, not bad considering i'm Scottish and don't take much of an interest in the FA Cup.

Arsenal are set to appoint former PSG boss Unai Emery as their new manager.

The 46 year old is available after leaving Paris St-Germain, where he won one league title and four domestic cups during his two seasons in charge.

He also guided Sevilla to three Europa League victories between 2014 and 2016.

As much as I like Mikel Arteta, this dude is clearly more experienced.

Tickets for the Champions League final are being sold for £14,000

Liverpool are moaning they only got 16,500 tickets for the game.

The Olympic stadium in Kiev holds 63,000

Liverpool fans don't travel well, look at Hysel.

That might explain the amount of tickets they've been given.

I heard yesterday that Mikel Arteta was having second thoughts about joining Arsenal, apparently he hadn't realised he wasn't as popular as he thought he was and realised without the support of the players, his job would be too difficult.

The new front runner now is ex PSG manager Unai Emery who was sacked by the French champions for his failure to win the Champions league. Emery is expected to be announced as manger in the next few days if not before and is in keeping with the board's wish to continue running Arsenal on a shoestring budget.

The Spaniard had very successful spells at both Valencia and Sevilla where the clubs challenged the might of the La Liga giants with limited resources. He also won the French league and French cup with PSG before being sacked the same season.

I don't know what to make of it, he will obviously have more experience than those being mentioned recently but whether he will have the ability to inspire the players, only time will tell.

One thing's for sure Arsenal players and fans need to get behind him, the board won't.

Mikel probably read the vile and disgusting comments being made about him and said "Fuck Arsenal"

Michael O'Halloran's agent has said his client made a mistake and he hopes this isn't, the end of his Rangers career.

I think it is the end, cheering on the enemy is unforgivable.

Emery seems to be a 'safe choice' experienced and moderately successful, I'm not sure though if he can bring anything new to the table, I hope he can.

Hopefully he isn't as easy going as Arsene Wenger.

Wenger was too soft on the players and they took advantage.

Well hopefully the new manager won't be so nice.

Not my words, but an interesting little story on Emery...

“Emery does all his own video analysis and, during his time at Valencia, gave players USB sticks to watch tactical clips on. He suspected one player never watched them, so gave him a blank USB and then asked him what he’d make of the clips”

Good thinking that.
