Post subject: FA Cup 2016 Final: Crystal Palace v Manchester United
The FA Cup Semi Final ties are now completed as Crystal Palace and Manchester United have advanced to the FA Cup Final for 2016.
Manchester United will be seeking their first silverware under Louis Van Gaal and their first trophy in three years when they won the Community Shield under David Moyes in 2013. Crystal Palace after a strong start to the season, but a second-half decline in the season will want to cause an upset under manager Alan Pardew.
Manchester United last made an FA Cup Final in 2007 losing to Chelsea in extra time, and last won the competition in 2004 beating Millwall 3-0 final. On the other hand, Crystal Palace have never won the FA Cup before but will be attempting to do so for a second time after participating in the FA Cup Final in 1990 losing to Manchester United of all teams.

I think that Manchester United should win this, would be good for Palace though if they could pull off an upset but I am not sure they can. But I will enjoy watching the game though. _________________ Ðavâgé
