The big final between the best 2 teams in England should be a very good contest. Something is just not right though :
First it is played midweek at 7pm making it difficult to attend for many people who have to work.
Second the location Barnet is not neutral at all. Underhill has seen Gunner’s men reserves for years and makes it a home game for Gunners fan and players as Arsenal Ladies played there a few times over the years.
Third price increase, someone suggested that was driven by the view that Olympics tickets were at least 20 pounds and no one complained about it. It is the first final that I have seen where the price is not 5 pounds but 10.
Fourth this will be the 6th game for Arsenal in 2 weeks including tough champions league games. With the 2 sides playing a no worthless league game next Sunday, let’s hope they rest their best players for the big final.
Why not play on a Sunday afternoon giving both side a 7 day rest and preperation time. Quality might suffer in the end and you don’t want bad quality to be broadcast live on ESPN surely.
All the best for the 2 teamS and let’s hope for the best possible entertaining game.
