Colossal anti-climax after the semi imho,the day was great (well at least the build-up,) but the game itself was poor,(should've known the roundabout being closed off was an ominous portent!) I've never watched any 'highlights' of the game and probably never will...

Such a let down particularly after the wonderful semi against Bolton. I didn’t stay for any of the presentations as soon as the final whistle went I was out of there. I know we were missing Matty but he wasn’t the only player to go missing. Such an anti climax ☹️
I am with other posters on here in that I have never watched any highlights of the final. I didn't leave the ground immediately after the final whistle as I happened to be in a hospitality area but I couldn't bring myself to watch them trudge up those stairs having lost and I certainly wasn't going to watch Man City pick up the trophy. Others in the hospitality area had come a long way for this and would probably not watch Stoke live again for several years (if ever). Understandable, I suppose, that they wanted to capture everything. I had flown in from Bangkok but (a) I generally get to see Stoke in the flesh once a season and (b) I still believe we can do it again in my lifetime - only 20-30yrs left for me realistically and (c) I was just too choked at losing that I couldn't bear to watch others celebrating/enjoying the occasion...still am!
