Lee Probert Gets FA Cup Final
How awesome is this?!
My imaginary boyfriend, Lee Probert, has been given the FA Cup Final between Arsenal and Hull City at Wembley on May 17.
Look how sweet he is:
“The first person I thought about was my dad who I lost six years ago. He was always there to support me throughout my career and it’s payback for all his hard work, taking me here, there and everywhere, encouraging me to never give up. When I walk out on 17 May, I know he’ll be chuffed to bits.”
Say it with me now: Awwwww.
Now, I love me some Lee Probert, I do. So it pains me to say this, but…
No freaking way he should have gotten this final*.
Lee’s been okay this year, but Mark Clattenburg has been nothing short of fantastic. He’s handled every big game they threw at him, has shone on the International stage (including in a huge Champions League quarter final) and has never had this particular final.
By all rights, it should have been his year.
So, no offense to Lee, but what the hell, FA?? When are you going to show the Clatts the love he deserves?
The Europa League final is in Turin on 14 May. IF (and it’s a big ‘if’) Clatts is in the running for that final, they would not have wanted to assign him to the FA Cup Final (which is announced far in advance of the Europa one) on the odd chance he’d have to make a choice. It’s a long shot, but still…
