5:40pm: The Redmen TV have an hour and half of pre-match build up. Some great sketches. Have a view on their Youtube channel.
5:15pm: Much of the pre-match debate surrounding team selection is whether Jamie Carragher will start, the general consensus is that fans don’t want him to, but fear Dalglish will start him.
Interesting pre-match stat flying around – Dirk Kuyt has scored in both his previous Cup Finals he’s appeared in for Liverpool (Champions League Final 2007 and Carling Cup Final 2012).
5pm: Reportedly, Chelsea failed to sell their allocation and tickets went on general sale. Absolutely incredible. They failed to sell their allocation for the semi-final too. Chelsea announced plans for a 60,000 seater stadium in Battersea today, not sure how they think it would ever sell out there if they can’t sell 25,000 for a Cup Final minutes away.
4:45pm: Pepe Reina uploaded the following pic and explanation as the Reds travelled down on the train this afternoon.
Here you have a pic of us playing “truco”… Not the best game for me tho. I learnt that from this cheeky guys on the photo haha… Hope we can make millions of Liverpool fans happy tomorrow by winning the game and lifting the Cup in the oldest competition in football!! A really big hug!!
