From the MCFC website “They say that victory is sweetest when you’ve known defeat…”
My Dad and brothers went to the FA Cup Final on Saturday it was a big treat for my youngest brother Tom as his birthday is 31st May and obviously they were hoping for a win to celebrate on Saturday. Sadly it wasn’t to be, my Dad chose James Milner as his City player of the match, I was told the Latics wanted it more and played a blinder so well done to Wigan.
One last note though, like the players on the day my family travelled by train, however, the journey back was fraught with problems with fans left behind after the match as the weather worsened, unable to even getting standing room on the limited trains back up North. Come on Virgin you knew how many fans you’d taken down there during the day and that they’d all need to get home. The fans along side local residents were left outside Wembley Central station queuing in the pouring rain, men, women and children but they all stayed good natured and considering the conditions, the only protests were to try and get the women and children under cover and out of the torrential rain. But even these requests were turned down by the people in charge.
