We’ll have more reaction in due course but for now we’d just like to congratulate Manchester City for eventually coming out on top in the 2016 Capital One Cup Final.
1-1 after 120 minutes, the game was eventually settled by penalties – City’s stand-in ‘keeper Willy Caballero putting in a heroic shoot-out shift to thwart Liverpool with three fantastic intuitive saves.
Cue 1,ooo Willy-based puns.
Pies’ heart goes out to Lucas Leiva, who really didn’t deserve to wind up on the losing side despite missing his spot-kick. The guy was collosal at the back during normal time but them’s the breaks, we guess.
Well played City. If nothing else, it’s nice to see Manuel Pellegrini sneak in a bit of silverware before he mosies off into the sunset at the end of the season.
