Not a carp or whine, but a celebration.

Great for both Liverpool and Spurs to win in the way they did to make it an all English final, (well almost given the number of foreign players these days).

But I do have to say one more thing......WOLVES beat them both :D :D :clap: :clap:

Sy would've been proud.

Liverpool:-

Ownership of the company - Fenway Sports Group (American)

Nationality of the squad - 5 x English, 1 x Welsh, rest 'foreign'.

Nationality of the Management - Jurgen Klop (Germany)


Spurs:-

Ownership of the company - ENIC - own 86% of the company = ENGLISH

Nationality of the squad - 9 x English, 1 x Welsh, rest 'foreign'.

Nationality of the Management - Mauricio Pochettino (Argentinian)


Chelsea:-

Ownership of the company - Roman Abramovic (Russian by birth, Israeli by Nationality)

Nationality of the squad - 8 x English, 1 x Welsh, rest 'foreign'.

Nationality of the Management - Maurizio Sarri (Italian)


Arsenal:-

Ownership of the company - Arsenal Holdings PLC (English!!!!!) - but sole shareholder of parent company = Enos Stanley (Stan) Kroenke (American!)

Nationality of the squad - 10 x English, 1 x Welsh, 1 x Scottish, rest 'foreign'.

Nationality of the Management - Unai Emery (Spanish)

So, from the above information, you can draw your own conclusions as to how 'English' these games are going to be........

..... but I accept that they are geographically located in England, and play in the English League - along with Swansea, Cardiff, Newport, Wrexham & Merthyr who definitely aint English :lol: :lol:

Dave - I think you misunderstood my bucketful of sarcasm :lol:

It's even worse than that anyway :shock:

The Englishness continues with the assistant managers too. Liverpool have a Bosnian Serb in 2nd command, Spurs have a Spaniard and Chelsea have an Italian. I believe Arsenal have someone who was actually born in England ? I think the half time pies and Bovril are an English thing too :wink:
