The money in the Premier League killed the FA cup final. It is as bad as the Leinster football final.

City are some team, canít believe thatís the first domestic treble.

The only thing driving them next year should be CL

£1,800,000 Prize money for the winners - Will go a long was towards hiding potential breaches of Financial Fair Play. :P

Dammit this game needed an early Watford goal.

Missed sitter. They may only get another chance like that

Ederson to be fair read the situation well and is one of the best keepers to save with his feet. Why wasn't the Watford penalty appeal even looked at by VAR?

It was, they said on commentary

Ok fair enough, i muted the commentary as soon as i heard Robbie Savage.

Why not turn it to BBC1?

Mthe best teams generally win the FA Cup, the best teams generally have the most money, unless there is a cap on wages and signings they will continue

Biggest Fa Cup win since 1903 Bury 6Ė0 Derby County. A Pity Wolves didn't make the final, I don't think they have folded as easily as Watford did this evening.

Switched over for the second half. Some impact De Bruyne made in that 2nd half, they will only be better next season if they can keep him fit.

Perreras missed chance might have made the game more entertaining but there was only ever going to be one winner.

Liverpool had no heed on the FA Cup this year! Liverpool just don't have the squad to compete outside the Premier League and theChampions League. So todays result did not mean anything, it was a Cup we looked on as a fixtures hindrance.

You cares what an isolated drunk Man City fan thinks about coverage of Liverpool this season. They have a trophy cabinet with the Premier League and the two add on Domestic Cups! That's all the history books will remember.

If City win does that mean it would be a Liverpool v City Charity Shield or would it be City v Watford?
Liverpool I presume. Thatís how it has worked in the past.

You would think Guardiola would wear a tie and shave for such a big day.

Why would anyone be obsessed with a team who haven't won the league in 30 years?
