Liverpool FA Cup conspiracy theory: Chelsea fans believe Liverpool FA Cup is a conspiracy


Chelsea fans have a conspiracy theory about the FA Cup based on the color of the ribbons.

Match of the Day host Gary Lineker posted a video to Twitter that showed the iconic old trophy with red ribbons, before the final between the Blues & Liverpool. Chelsea fans took the appearance of the crimson trim, despite red being the FA Cup sponsor Emirates’s colour, to be a conspiracy in Liverpool’s favour.

One person wrote: “Why does the FA cup have red ribbons on it and is on a red plinth? Mind games or just written us off already? Typical @BBCSport. Liverpool lovers!! @ChelseaFC.”

Someone else said: “I honestly think this FA cup is already rigged for LiVArpool There’s been a lot of them red ribbons around it.”Another user commented on the recent comments made by Thomas Tuchel and Pep Guardianiola. Citing a Liverpool bias, he added: “Red ribbons!! Pep and tuchel were right all along.”

Guardiola stated that everyone in the country supports Liverpool and the media after City’s win over Newcastle 5-0 last week.

Is there a Liverpool bias in Britain? We’d love to hear your opinions in the comments section.

“Of course because Liverpool has an incredible history in European competition. Not in the Premier League, because they have won one in 30 years, but it is not a problem at all.”

“Liverpool are alongside [Manchester] United as the most important team in terms of titles, legacy, history, dramas for many, many things.”

“But we have since the last 11 or 12 years been there. I know sometimes we are uncomfortable, but I don’t care if the people want Liverpool to win more than us. It is not an issue,”He concluded.

Guardiola was sympathized by Tuchel at his press conference prior to the FA Cup final. “I can understand why he made it,”He said. “I can understand why he has that feeling. In general, I would say it is hard to really argue with it. I believe I can understand what he meant.

“Liverpool has huge sympathy. That sentiment is shared by the entire country. It’s easy to understand why people feel it sometimes feels like this if they have fought against it for so many years like Pep. But at the same time, I don’t think it’s only here. It’s in Germany like this and in France, too.”

It is not the first time this season that supporters have complained about the colour of the FA Cup’s ribbons. In January, Leicester City fans also moaned about the presence of red material on the trophy’s ears before their game against Hull City.

The holders’ colours usually stay on the FA Cup until a new team wins the trophy, but the Foxes’ traditional colours of blue and gold were nowhere to be seen on the famous old pot.
