This may be a premature posting but god i hope not! Mainly aimed at the younger lads out there, as if we do get to Wembley watching your team walk out to that roar is the most emotional feeling you will ever experience in your life.
Some cry, some fall dumb but most just go ballistic with pride. If we do get there enjoy and take in evey last second, because when you get home and think back on the day it all feels like a dream.
It is over in a flash - win, lose or draw. If the dream comes true and we get there take the go ballistic route.
It's much more fun.

I’m not sure we have much of a say in how we react. The emotions get fully exposed. I felt sick with nerves in 1995, couldn’t even drink pre-match, made up for it afterwards. In 1984 against LFC and Watford, I just partied my way there. In 1985, I was confident as could be, and relaxed in the knowledge that we were the champs, and who cares what happens next..... 86 and 89 were full of emotion for different reasons. Been different every time for me. Can make all those years of mediocrity or worse feel worth it somehow though!!

Cried like a baby after the Watford final.
Won’t mention the kopite one i went to as i cried then also (Shit just have).
But after the Manc final my mate said i just roared like a demented chimp for ages after the game.
Remember kissing the face of some fella i’d never even seen in my life, funny thing was he was happy for me throw the lips on him.
Oh happy days.

In 1968 we had already beaten WBA 6-2 away and 4-1 at home and I just KNEW something was going to go wrong. It was the most one-sided final I have ever seen and yet the ball would just not go in WBA’s net! A poxy, miskicked goal won the game for them and I wasn’t surprised! It was a travesty and an example of the terrible bad luck which always seems to plague Everton. I hope we have earned a little bit of good luck now....Jeez...we’ve earned it!
!984 was an easy game. We were never in danger. 1985 would have been different if we hadn’t have been knackered and 1986, well we had the bastards on the rack and....well...I’ll say no more!
1995 was payback time but there is a lot of 1966 in it. It is always portrayed as the Final that Man U lost...which totally ignores the fact that we were by far the better team on the day! Finals, especially the FA Cup Final are extremely emotional events for supporters and players. But I’d rather be a player than a supporter based on my own experiences as a supporter!
