i guess those small allocations dont matter given the sales figures because of the travel involved.

they dont feel its true though, a place where players might be unsafe in this sort of way isnt the place for a final.

also they block fans from getting visas because of being British-Armenians.

So about 7,000 actual fans at the game. That’s shocking.

indeed, it started with people saying theres too few tickets for fans and ends like this because of the location.

More Chelsea shenanigans, as David Luiz and Gonzalo Higuain clash in training and Sarri storms off down the tunnel.

Off to Juve? I don't know whether it's just a culture clash with Sarri or what, but these public displays of discontent make you wonder if he wants out. After the whole Kepa thing, and now this, maybe he's already had enough of certain members of his squad.

Sarri was apparently unhappy that the whole of the training session was open to the media so they couldn't practise set-piece plays.

Which, Tbh, is a valid enough concern. Don't actually know why need open training sessions really.

maybe the Chelsea PR people should have briefed him on big finals to let him know the worlds media get access to watch the teams train before the game so if he really wanted to practice "secret" stuff but somehow couldn't because of people in the stadium then he really is his just been a drama queen.

hopefully its just Chelsea playing mind games and hate to say it but they better win tonight.

i guess that was a vintage Arsenal display, Chelsea didnt really break a sweat.

it will be interesting to see how they cope without Hazard.
