Manchester City 2 Manchester United 1 (2023)

Manchester City remain on course for the Treble after Ilkay Gundogan scored twice to give them victory over Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

Having already won the Premier League title, City now go into next Saturday's Champions League final against Inter Milan in Istanbul with the opportunity to emulate United's feat of 1999.And City captain Gundogan was the big game match-winner again, assuring his place in history with the quickest goal in FA Cup final history, a stunning volley after only 12 seconds eclipsing Louis Saha's strike for Everton after 25 seconds against Chelsea in 2009.

Manchester United equalised after 33 minutes when the video assistant referee ruled that Jack Grealish had handled, Bruno Fernandes coolly sending Stefan Ortega the wrong way from the spot.



It was Gundogan, as he does so often, who made the decisive contribution when he volleyed Kevin de Bruyne's free-kick past United keeper David de Gea six minutes after the break to give City the FA Cup for the seventh time.

All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

I had the bizarre experience of watching the television set this afternoon. My wife was a bit concerned that I might not quite remember how to do it but, no problem, I managed to get there without any fuss. 😊


For some reason I was cheering and shouting “YES!” a couple of seconds before the opening goal. This is not because I am some kind of great football strategist, or anything of the kind. It’s just that, every so often, each one of us just KNOWS what is going to happen next.


As for the ridiculous penalty award……well, I suggest the VAR team take note whenever the next male or female track events are contested. They might observe that the competitors arms are flailing around beside their bodies because they are…erm, you know….running.

Trouble is Steve under the present rules it was a nailed on penalty, until the handball rules are changed back to what they were this is what’s going to happen ,also re the opening goal I had the exact feeling what you had but my response was a bit more colourful than yours , ;)
