After FA Cup Final it said Arsenal are back at Wembley in a few weeks for the Community Shield. The purpose of the Community Shield is the gate receipts went to Charity, but there won't be a crowd and no gate receipts!! It is a one off game so in the current climate it is bonkers to play the game, I'm sure Arsenal & Liverpool really do not need this game.

I've long thought that this game should be dropped and replaced with one match day during the season where money is raised at every game across the country instead.

I suppose there will be broadcast revenue, no idea how much that will offset the costs of staging the match.

...and its still a scandal that we didn't play in the 1987 season opener. Everton won nothing the season before, should have been us v Liverpool.

33 years on and still won't let it go ? ?

Without wishing to sound pedantic, wasnt that the ‘86 charity shield? So, 34 years without letting it go.. ?

Anyone who counts it as a trophy toward their club honours should get in the bin.

It’s a PSF at best.

Haha, yeah, of course, 86/87 curtain raiser, so 34 year grudge (so far).

Although I still do have older grudges for Alan Biley/Santa at Pompey in 84/5, and the smoke bomb in 82 ? Should really let some of this go now ?
