Ah lads, Community Shield is not a trophy. Glorified friendly, always has been.
Pffft, still don't want Chelsea to get their hands on it.
Agree, we can't let those ****s win it. Even if it's a glorified friendly.
On another note, have we or the media congratulated Gerrard with his birthday already? Must have been a great feeling, knowing that he could celebrate with family and friends instead of being raped at Wembley.
It is if we lose against Chelsea, if we win it's on par with winning Seria A.
I was not there but 2 of my sons were there.
I was in Dorset,one of my friends is a Villa fan and we teased each other by saying durring the game we are not friends
Hubby was at home watching the match on the telly
Thank you fabo.
Community shield is nonsense, all its good for is to balance out the FA Cup in our next team photo.

I don't really regard the Community Shield as a proper trophy, but isn't it exactly the same as the Spanish Super Cup? (Supercopa de España)
I have heard people talking about the winners of that as if they've won a trophy.
Shield is nothing but a good game to mark a new season. Not a trophy at all
You can call it nonsense all you want, the fact is, it is counted towards overall trophies won. So yes, I want us to win it. Chelsea or not.
We all want to win it, but it's not a trophy. Only losers count it - I recall Mancini doing so, knew he was scraping the barrel at that stage.
People underestimate the power of the community shield match when you enter the match via winning the FA Cup. It means you face the league leaders. It also means that it has a huge psychological effect on your players regarding big games vs that opposition. Would we have been so confident vs Man City had we not beaten them so convincingly in the community shield?
If we were to do the same vs Chelsea, Mourinho would play it down like many of you are on here absolutely. However, it would have a psychological effect on the players when the league game comes around. I think its very important we try to win it. Regardless of how small the boost is, it is worth it vs Chelsea.
We started the season terribly after looking great against City in the Community Shield last season. It really doesn't mean anything.
To me it means nothing either, but this time we have a great chance of beating Mourinho. If we don't it isn't much of a problem, but if we do it's a key psychological victory.
Goes into the trophy cabinet doesn't it? Fills up space a hell of a lot better than the Emirates cup does anyway.
I dont see why Community Shield doesnt count. Not nearly as good as the FA Cup obv. but its still something to win.
Winner of the PL vs. Winner of the FA Cup. Kinnddddd of a big deal. Technically we've had a lovely double winning season .
Against Maureen and his girls..........would love to win this & it keeps that winning feeling going. The lads looked pretty chuffed to win it last year.
