    Noon Eastern Time.

    Can City complete the domestic treble? or Will Watford win their second FA Cup?

    I'd like to see Watford win, but it's unlikely.

    Heurelho Gomes starting for Watford makes me happy.

    What makes me even happier is that Ben Foster said he would refuse to play if Javi Gracia tried to start him over Gomes.

    I got a feeling Deeney is going to pot one today. He loves himself a big game!

    Looked like offside at first sight, but it was not. City should win this easily.

    Pereyra had a great chance at 0-0. Don't think he hit it how he wanted and Ederson did well coming out. Watford also had a penalty claim but it hit Kompany's shoulder so correct decision made.

    My feeling about Deeney scoring may have been slightly off.....

    City capping off a big season. Take the League Cup out of it and a Double is still a big deal.

    I had my fill after 55 minutes. Too many other sports on the go today to watch the rest of that.

    Only English side to do a domestic treble is Arsenal Ladies.

    United are the other English team to win a treble having done the league, CL, and FA cup in 99, but yea this is the first time someone has won the league cup, fa cup, and league in the same year.

    It's incredibly tough to manage to win a domestic treble. There's no laps in concentration possible, even by your backups who' ll get some games.
    Blanc did it 3 times in a row and nobody did it since with PSG. Credit to him, it's quite something.

    I'm pretty sure the 6-0 scoreline is the worst defeat in FA Cup Finals history.

    Yep, tied with Bury beating Derby 6-0 in 1903.

    Still 20 goals short of the all rounds record though. City really needed to pick it up.
