Watford fans created a very different atmosphere to Man City supporters at the FA Cup final

Manchester City v Watford - FA Cup Final

Manchester City taught Watford a painful lesson at Wembley on Saturday evening. 

Pep Guardiola's men equalled the record for the biggest margin of victory in an FA Cup final, set by Bury against Derby in 1903. 

The Hornets were ripped apart by a Raheem Sterling hat-trick, as well as goals from David Silva, Gabriel Jesus, and the excellent Kevin de Bruyne. 

Yet Javi Gracia's side can be hugely proud of themselves for reaching the showpiece of the English football season.  

Their semi-final comeback against Wolves provided one of the most dramatic moments of the campaign and after all, this was the first time they've reached the final since 1984.

Whereas City have visited the national stadium five times this season, it felt much more like a once-in-a-generation occasion for the Watford fans. 

It showed too, with a sea of red and yellow flags sweeping across Wembley even when the sixth goal went in.

One video has captured the mood in the two clubs' respective ends and to put it bluntly, it only looks like one set of fans are 6-0 down - and it wasn't the Watford supporters. 

Several Watford fans also claimed they saw scores of their City counterparts leaving the stadium before the trophy was presented. 

Millions of people can only dream of watching their team lift the cup live in the flesh and it's something that shouldn't be taken for granted.

Hours after wrapping up the Premier League title against Brighton, they held an afterparty at the Etihad that was, for want of a better word, just plain awkward and noticeably quiet.

Are their fans getting a little spoilt after another phenomenal season of success?

Their cup success capped a historic domestic treble, something which has never yet been achieved in English men's football. 

At least if you're a Watford fan, maybe you can count yourself the moral winner from Saturday's action. It was a memorable day and one none of them will ever forget.
