They did Steve.  Offside,can't see it,a farcical end to a great game.
ps. it should have played on Sat. City on Sun,after their ordeal of a match ,plus travel.


Fully agree, and I would still agree if City had been the beneficiaries of such an obviously wrong VAR decision. Christ, what a farce football is turning itself into.

I have just discovered that this season’s FA Cup Final will be the first repeat final since Blackburn Rovers took on (and beat) Queen’s Park back in 1884 and 1885. Truly a historic occasion, whatever the outcome.

Eric appears to be having yet another trying day at the office, from what I can gather.

Good Lord, it’s getting worse! Try to keep the score down, you chaps.

But who else will they get in his place? United are not the club they used to be in the days pre-Glazier. The essential difference between the two Manchester teams is not wealth, because United have enjoyed decades of it, but the knowledge and the willingness to use it wisely. City are run by people who are dedicated to making them the most successful sporting institution on the planet, as the owners stated when they completed the takeover in 2008. United have for a long time been in the hands of individuals who, in all honesty, are little more than asset strippers. The current sorry state of Old Trafford stands testament to this. How many top quality managers will be willing to take on a challenge like that one?

The glazers are never going to give up the golden Cow , however Jin Radcliffe is a ruthless businessman probably more so than the glazers his appointments already show that the people who were there originally were not good enough and has replaced several of them , one who has come in is a city man,  ten Haag tactical know how is at best championship  level Utd at the moment remind me of the shambles city we’re before the Arabs came in and built city with the right people from top to bottom , it won’t happen overnight but it will change for the better,

We'll see.


Much as I take the peas out of Mr Tent Peg and his not-so-merry men, I would love to see both Manchester clubs going head to toe for every trophy every season. City v United in the FA Cup Final is something we kids in the street used to dream about, but now we have it two years in a row.


Better than watching the Drippers v the Gonners, that's for sure.

Four Titles in a row. City break yet another record. It is now six out of seven. If we can push ourselves over the finishing line next year it will be seven out of eight, beating Liverpool’s seven out of nine back in the 70s/80s.

Goodbye the Double, this year at least. 😔


You simply can’t give silly goals away like that first one and expect to win the game.


Oh, well……..

Utd for once got their tactics right and didn’t do anything stupid , still I’m still not convinced about the keeper onano ,ie city’s goal he’s done it a few times this season

Sums it up Parky,only when 2-1 did it get interesting.
Politicians and nappies must be changed often,and for the same reason
