Manchester United 2 Crystal Palace 1

FA Cup winners!!!

It's been too long since I celebrated so much as a Man United fan.

We've finally won another trophy after two barren years post SAF.

Wayne Rooney really carried the team on his shoulders once we went a goal down. That wonderful run past so many Crystal Palace players followed by cross to Mata to finish. Also his cross-field passes and defence were very good. This guy seriously wanted his first ever FA Cup winners medal.

Jesse Lingard's volleyed goal during extra time was sublime. Who would have thought an academy product would decide the final?! At least one would've expected Rashford to be that someone.

DDG was his usual superhuman self. Not many saves to make, but had to be alert to a few tough saves.

Martial and Rashford were a thorn throughout as well.

All in all what a wonderful night. Screamed myself hoarse at Chijmes with friends.

Thank you LVG but now it is time for you to go.
