Come on Ryan Masons blue and white army. I tell you what sacking Mourinho just changed everything for me. The pre match nerves are back, the anticipation, walking down Wembley way to meet up with the lads and have a few beers pre match. Can’t believe how much I’ve missed this. Please just shock us all do them today Tottenham.

Pretty hard to get excited about this considering that it's between two Super League whoppers, but I'm hopeful that City can lift the trophy as I'm a fan of Pep Guardiola's work - nothing more than that. 

By sacking Mourinho, Spurs have turned their back on someone who knows the blueprint of winning trophies, but have in the same breath brought the feel good factor back to the club that the owners were probably hoping for. I've always like Ryan Mason whenever I've seen him too, so hoping that he has a successful spell with the club between now and the start of summer.

So then. Which greedy cunts are we rooting for today then? 

EDOT: What I will say though is that it's good to hear actual fans in the stadium, rather than the made up one Sky uses.

The dominance has been crazy. This is where City miss Aguero/a proper striker.

It does make you wonder with City failing to take advantage of these opportunities if the upset is in the air...

City have hired the ref from the Dortmund game.

Aguero is past it & Jesus is off form  ..real question is why haven't they bought any strikers??

Because Gabriel Jesus isn't a footballer.

Spurs need another midfielder to drive forward. Both Winks and Holberg are redundant.

Still decent strikers and can grab a goal!

You'll spend big in the summer

Crowd is better than I thought it would be. I'm glad they're in a corner and not spread out.

A deserved win, it's not a dig at Mason as he's only had a few days with the team but sacking Mourinho before a cup final was insanity. 

Such a poor game from their point of view.

Tottenham can have little complaints. The fact it's only 1-0 is consolation enough.

Feels weird to say after it took 82mins to break the deadlock but in reality, Spurs were never in it.

They showed signs in the 2nd half but Mason did very well to stop it by taking off Moura and LoCelso. The only two players who were threatening City.
