Hull's Meyler feels Arsenal premature in planning FA Cup victory parade

Hull midfielder David Meyler says news that Arsenal are already planning their victory parade has gifted the Tigers an extra incentive to win the FA Cup for the first time in their history on Saturday. Traffic notices in north London make clear the Gunners are expecting to show off the trophy in an open-top bus tour around Islington the day after the final on Sunday.

"They haven't won a trophy in nine years and they've got their posters up in London about their parade next week and credit to them," says Meyler.

"I'd rather be the underdog. People are delighted when the underdog wins - I don't think many people want Arsenal to win."
