I had high hopes that this might be quite a good game, but Palace's anti football has scotched that...

Palace were too negative to deserve anything other than what they got... ...and what a stunner of a strike to win it!

CHAMPIONS!!!! ...we're on the way back

Won by an academy player as well - so fitting given the story of the season

Well done, you deserved to win that in normal time, never mind extra time. Palace will struggle next season with Pardew at the helm while this may well be the start of another Utd dynasty, not necessarily with LVG at the helm but this is the springboard that the club needed, it really is 1990 all over again.

If it is true, and it's also true that the club haven't yet told LVG then that's a pretty scummy way to do things. Again, after Moyes.

To be fair, they wouldn't tell LVG until after today's game. Someone has leaked it, it's not like it's a club statement.

JM replacing LVG is as big a spoiler as Jon Snow not being dead in s6 of GOT.

...aah *****...just as we have something to cheer about this is about to be announced, at least give us a couple of days to celebrate!

Good news for De Gea, not so much for Rashford. Or Giggs.

Not happy with the timing of all this if it is as it appears. I was hoping LVG would announce his retirement after the cup win and take control of the situation, but this seems clearly to be a sacking pure and simple.

But the move is the right one - another season of LVG wasn't in the club's best interests, and had the potential to get quite nasty. Given the lack of options on the managerial market (most of the best managers are Premier League managers next season anyway) then Mourinho is our best option, despite all the negatives and risk that comes with his appointment.
