As a Wolves fan, losing the semi-final the way we did was the pits, I've never come away from a football match as hurt as that. Two years of exceeding all expectations still doesn't insulate you from that. Who knows when the next chance to reach a final will come?
For the last month, every time I've seen something about the FA Cup final I've gone into mourning, thinking 'that could have been us'.
As the final progressed, I was still thinking 'that could have been us', but for very different reasons! Delighted with Wolves' progress this year, 41 points off the bottom is great. But the same off City at the top, every chance we'd have suffered a similar fate in the final, glad it wasn't us.
That Man City team really are something else. Congratulations to them, they are incredible.
Hope of course that you beat Villa in the play-off final. Yes, the Premier is unforgiving, as Wolves and Derby fans we know that as well as anybody, but it can be done, not all teams are as good as City 🙂
