    Man come on, the performance was poor.

    City finished 27 points ahead of us and yet we played better in both legs. Pool finished 26 points ahead of us and yet we put in a much much better performance, at their home ground and could have won just a couple of months ago.

    People aren't tinkled off with the result as such (though obviously we are), it's the manner of it.

    Gutting.

    What a bizarre game. Disappointing from us. I doubt we’ll ever have a better chance to win the CL as Liverpool didn’t turn up, but there you go.

    I would be really surprised if a top, top team wants Eriksen this summer; yet again, anonymous. As was Dele. As was Kane.

    Still, it’s been a blast.

    Two poor teams battling out, we're on the losing end. Generous penalty decisive; I think we would have had a better chance if it wasn't for that. They basically didn't have a proper hance, even that second goal wasn't a big chance.

    Opportunity missed, but hey, we were in the final and that’s fudging great.

    Called it at the time but why was Winks taken off? Had to be Trips off, Sissoko right and Moura on for me. Unless those few bursts done Winks in.

    We had more of the ball, that was partly them letting us have it as we carried no threat for the first 80 mins.

    Same story as always for us, look at the cup games against United and Chelsea in recent years, we played scared.

    This.

    But pool do have a solid defence. We didn’t raise our game in attack to the level required that we can achieve. Our attacking hasn’t been clinical all season. But we made it to the final.

    Nerves and fatigue played a part for both teams.

    All that cheesy nonsense with arrows and firewalking screwed us. Probably the lemons, too.

    No one played well enough to deserve MotM. Danny Rose was probably our least bad player.

    City waaaay outplayed us over 180 minutes. People are entitled to their opinions and I am gutted, but will always have the amazing comebacks to remember, not this limp final.

    Can anyone answer why we kept playing the ball Back to Hugo for 75 mins of the game? I can't be the only person who noticed that it seemed like we were camped in our own third for most of the match.

    The important thing is that we learn the lessons from today, gain from the experience, build on the strength that we shown in the Champions League this season, make sure that we get back to a final again soon and not let @Jon fudge it up with a brick OMT next time.

    Being a fan means supporting all our players while they play in our shirt. Your behaviour is shameful no better than the clams around me at the Lane shouting abuse at our players.

    I think the pen decision has pinched that final. I’m not saying it was wrong. I just wonder if it might have been a better game/different outcome without such a game defining decision so early. Liv A1 position to be one up. 3 holders in front of a solid back 4 and just pop it forward rather than come on to us.

    We weren’t too bad imo. Remove the pen and we were the better side creating decent openings.
