I think Guardiola was incensed by Cook's demand for the red card to be shown. No doubt Cook will shrug off his playground behaviour by claiming he's just "passionate". Shame to see Pep lose it too, though. I still think he's a class act.

Interesting that the Wigan players immediately surrounded the ref (also demanding a red card), showing little concern for the player who had been poleaxed by Delf's challenge. There was a post-Manure-Arse directive to give a yellow when more than 4 (?) players pressure the ref. Did Wigan get a yellow?

Somehow the ref caved to the pressure and gave the red after initially pulling out the yellow. Have to say that I don't think VAR would've helped in this situation. There wasn't a single angle that was conclusive. In real time, it just looked like a full-blooded tackle which won the ball. These days it's called reckless if the opponent has an opportunity to do a triple salco.

At least Grigg's goal was a worthy winner.

Good post this.

Bizarre to see a ref pull out a yellow and start to jot down the offender, before then deciding on a red.

Very easy to see why Pep was so pissed off; he's watched his players get hacked down multiple times by wild tackles without a sniff of a red card, and then our first dubious tackle lands Delph with a 3 match ban. I don't think the tackle was too bad, but can also understand how in this day and age it's gonna lead to a sending off. It just needs the officials to be consistent with it cos when you see Alli almost snapping Kev's leg and just getting a yellow then something isn't right when Delph gets a straight red for a far less dangerous tackle.

At least being out the cup means we can focus on the league now Wink It was only 2 years ago that on these pages City were accused of throwing the competition!

The FA just signed a cosy deal with Qatar where free speech is punishable by 3 years in jail.

The FA just charged Guardiola for wearing a yellow ribbon and supporting Catalunya.

The FA did this 2 days before City play a Cup final, when he's been wearing it all season.

Are we so big time these days that when we win a trophy, we can't even be arsed to chirp up in here? Wink

Enjoyed yesterday very much. Was quietly confident heading into the game, and aside from that early scare I thought we controlled the match with the result never in doubt once Aguero scored. Almost symbolic that despite all the money spent, it was the old guard of Sergio, Vinny and Silva that did the damage. Particularly pleasing to see Kompany score and have a great game in general, you could see how much that meant to him. I think he's gonna be very much a bit part player from next season, but he showed he can still put in a performance when needed, especially on the big stage.

Hoping to crack on in the league and look to get that sewn up as soon as possible. Some tough games coming up so as unlikely as it would be, I'd hate to give the chasing pack a slight glimmer of hope. I'm sure Pep wouldn't stand for any drop in performance though.

Oh, and new contract for Wenger please Smiley

Naturally delighted with the result and a good performance once it kicked in at the start of the 2nd half but the game just lacked the tension of any previous Wembley visit for me.

Agree about the old guard - brilliant that all 3 of them were v good  and particularly enjoyed Silva's goal.

Wenger's post match comments are hilarious. Who knows what that man is on. And Wilshere for that matter with his ridiculous instagram post....

I'd heard that Neville had hammered Arsenal for a woeful performance. I've watched it back earlier and wow that was some heavy criticism. Too much imo.

No doubt we'll see a different Arsenal on Thursday. I hope not because a win there in a league game is something of a rarity.

Had a great day apart from some dicks in our seats and had been duplicated by Wembley so we had a steward trying to find us 3 more seats. Well chuffed for Captain Kompany. The atmosphere seemed to be a little flat for a Wembley final and both teams were not at there best infact Arsenal were shocking. Don't know how we will get on in Quarter finals of Champions league as fearing we may draw Liverpool, anybody but them. Ctid

Title getting very close now but expecting a very tough game later. Not least because Chelsea have had a full week of recovery and preparation time.

Some incredible numbers since we lost at Chelsea in April last season -  30 wins from 36 games played, 5 draws and 1 loss. Scored 105 goals in the process and a goal difference of 80..

It's been a joy. Particularly enjoyed the 3rd goal against Arsenal. Football porn when seen with the full build up:

But but but the experts said Pep would be found out in the PL, and you can't win games just by having all of the possession?

Chelsea might not be in the best of form but its certainly a tricky game, though hopefully we shouldn't be too leggy and fatigued after a couple of training matches against Arsenal.

Need 18 goals in 10 games for my bet so if we can snaffle another 2 or 3 from this game then I'll be happy.

Yep.. I enjoy one of the City twitter accounts that retweets all the critical stuff from 9 months or so ago

A bit of after timing here -  I've got a massive £11 on it. Unfortunately that is diluted because I split it between 90+ and 100+

Delighted with the result and such a dominant performance.  The 2nd half was so strange after we took the lead and assumed Chelsea would open-up. Lots of incredulity around me as Chelsea simply played dead. Not a half for a TV audience hoping for a different brand of entertainment!

This clip showing Chelsea stopping playing is surreal. I do like Paul Lakes take though.

I genuinely didn't know Fabregas was playing until he skewed a long pass in the 68th minute.

Chelsea were organised and difficult to break down, but again we didn't need to be anywhere near our best to beat what are the reigning champions....but you'd never believe that was the case judging on their 90 minute performance yesterday!

4 to go.....

You missed his earlier highlight... The backpass to Azpilicueta intercepted by Sane. Aguero should have tee'd up Bernado Silva tbh.

Honestly this City team is the best side to ever grace the premier leauge. And this is coming from a United fan. Bravo. (How I miss that guy Cheesy ).
