After the mickey mouse competition that was the champions league, it's now time to focus on the real prize; the FA Cup.

I'm fairly confident about this. Everton will want to go all out but Chelsea will feel they have to win this at all costs. Bookies favour chelsea at 3/4 vs 17/4 for Everton winning.

Will help erase some of the memories of the Barcelona game and it'd be a great farewell to (and from) Hiddink who has been great for Chelsea if we win but he will be missed no matter the outcome of the game.

Hiddink has done a wonderful job and the FA Cup would be good on his CV, am going to go for Everton though since they have some of our players, Neville, Saha, Howard.

I will be supporting Everton tomorrow. I think Moyes is a class act and deserves a trophy. Also, it will mean so much more to a club like Everton.
I think Chelsea will win though.

Never hear the end of it if that no-eyebrow gargoyle Moyes wins the bloody thing.
Come on Chelsea!

Hope Everton do it, if no other reason than to see that jumped up little prick Cashley Cole on the losing side.

Whilst part of me would like to see Hiddink walk away from the Chelsea job with some reward (in his short reign he's brought a lot of class to the Premier League and his moving on is a loss to the leage) I do feel David Moyes and the work he's done with Everton over the last few years has been exceptional and fully deserving of a trophy.

So I have to go with Everton.

head says Chelsea all the way though.

Get in there!
A nice early goal, just hope that the match isn't as dull as the Chelsea/Middlesborough where Di Matteo scored so early on in the 1990's.
I think we could be in for a classic.

Euch so sloppy for that goal. Look like we're going to have to go against a team defending hard now. Just hope we get that spark of luck you need in these situations

The ball out wide from Lampard for the cross was fantastic. Made it look so easy.

We're looking more likely to score but it could still go either way

Not giving Lampard much credit on ITV but it was a well placed strike on his weaker foot. Bit harsh to blame it on the keeper considering he had players in front of him and was looking towards the bright end of the pitch.

More Gaffs by Everton..the non attempt of a tackle and a poor effort of a save by Howard,another gift for Chelski.

Lampard is world class and the replay show that. He hits the ball first time after stumbling. Everton should throw the kitchen sink at Chelsea now, it's all they have got.

Malouda scored there, that was over. Would be just our luck if that cost us.

Malouda robbed of a top quality goal, ball was over the line.

Wasn't a dive by lampard there either, no way he wasn't going to go down with a leg out like that.

Another dull FA Cup Final..last one that you could call a classic was when the mousers beat the hammers,since then they all been been dire and seem to be getting worse every year and more proof that the gap between the top four and the rest is getting bigger every year.

Not sure on that, Arsenal have been shocking in the second half of this season.

But anyway, Woooooooooo!

Brilliant end to a tough season. Thank you Mr Hiddink.

Didn't think the game was that dull - typical PL game really. Early goal mixed things up a bit and prevented it from being that dull.

That goal-that-wasn't was a scorcher. Beyond me why they don't have goal line technology these days. They've got it in tennis and that's with much smaller balls moving, what, 3 times quicker?

Glad for Hiddink, thought he done a great job turning the team around, shown real quality. Good to see him getting a medal for his work. Shame about Moyes, but then he'll get loads of medals in a year or two when he comes to United as Assistant Manager for a year before moving up to the big chair :)

There was lots of stuff on the radio saying how great the everton fans were and how brilliant it was them showing up without tickets.

My dad was at the game and there were a few groups of about 20 Everton supporters who got tickets... At the Chelsea end. When Everton scored, they all jumped up and cheered in the middle of a huge bunch of Chelsea supporters. Needless to say 5 minutes later they were being escorted out of the ground with a few of them sporting bruises.

Bunch of idiots, they could've easily sparked off something huge (those people, not the people who had proper tickets).

Haha, fancy that, a group of Chelsea fans twatting and then getting 20 Everton fans evicted after going a goal down with one minute on the clock. Chelsea fans are well hard.

Right...

That would've happened at the vast majority of clubs (or something worse). It's why they give the tickets to the clubs to distribute so they can ensure they only go to fans. Mixing different fans in a stadium never ends well.

The Everton fans could've only got the tickets through touts
