    Well done to Portsmouth in the end, their rough and tumble tactics worked a treat in the end but also played some decent stuff in fairness.

    Literally a game of 2 halves for the first 90, we should’ve been out of sight first half then barely got a sniff in the second but extra time was all them and we were fortunate to even get to penalties tbh. I did say I wasn’t hugely concerned about not winning but it still stings, but what a fantastic weekend all the same.

    Great atmosphere, great game, great city, great stadium. F*ck it, we go again.

    Other countries do have these competitions, but you might not have heard of them because there lower league systems are nowhere near as strong and couldn't dream of having the final in front of 85,000 fans.

    Ok I'll take your word for it, we don't have them in Germany.

    Fair enough, but they've got them in Spain (Spanish Royal Federation Cup) and Italy (Coppa Italia Serie C, Coppa Italia Serie D).

    The Football league must be happy teams like Luton/Oxford/Coventry and these 2 have got to the final in recent seasons with their large followings.

    They'll probably hope for more of the same next season!
