So we missed out on the Premiership. It was a great game, Blackpool just deserved it and we never really recovered after Boothroyd limped off injured.
Roll on next season.
A Welsh Dragon at Wembley Park. I went off for beers at an incredibly posh and civilised pub in Harrow, walking past blazer and flannels-clad toffs at the Harrow School.
It was a very odd start to a City match.
This is more like it! Singing City songs on the way to Wembley.

The Welsh Dragon gives a reluctant Tangerine a hug.
This is what Wembley Way looks like with one minute before kick off (I was waitimng for my ticlet to arrive, so missed the kick off).
Tangerine painted Blackpool fans saunter up to Wembley.
City fans celebrate Chopra's opening goal.
Charlie Adam's incredible free kick levels the score.
Joe Ledley puts us back ahead. It was all downhill from here.
Marshall goes off on another awayday jaunt from goal. Blackpool score.
Half time starts.
Spot the ball! Despite City pressure, we couldnt get one back.
Full time. Blackpool fans go crazy. It was horrible.
This is what missing out on the Premiership felt like for City players.
