    The CT needs to update their website. It still says we are 'plying our trade in League 2'.

    Sat in a pub in bowmore, islay. Shout out to the others from the sba watching with me and George and Willie from falkirk who supported the sky blues during the game. Bloody brilliant.

    So I watched the game with my 78 year old dad, he predicted 3-1 and at the end of the game started singing the sky blue song.
    Now it could be sleep deprivation on my Belva or a few beers or even the emotion of seeing our club winning so convincingly but a few tears fell

    Well done city and well done to every fan we deserve our moment in the sun and here’s to a few more

    Just finished work and have had the biggest smile on my face for a while now. What a bloody fantastic result. It's been a long season in League Two and I can't wait for the next one when we're back in League One. I am now off to get pissed in the pub. Well done to the team for a great day and blistering result that was richly deserved.

    I persuaded the pub to put the ITV news from Central on the TV. Those goals were great and it was obviously a brilliant atmosphere inside Wembley.....well for us anyway.

    What a day! Thought at half time there had to be more to come, and not was there ever. I had 2 hours kip last night, I don't think I'll get much more tonight I'm so excited, just amazing. What a team, and what support too, excellent all round!

    Lads I’m tapping out out not slept since yesterday afternoon

    Play up sky blues, fantastic feeling and on the crest of a sky blue wave. But I’m emotionally exhausted (pissed)


    N’night

    Nowhere near mate, but still brilliant.

    I have been saying all season about finding form at right moment and a strong finish is what we needed and what the lads did. Well done squad!

    Just got back home after a fantastic day. What a great performance by everyone. Players, management and SBA who were superb. thought we genuinely looked like we belonged in a different league today, in fact same against Notts County where we were vastly superior.

    A great achievement and somehow it feels even better than 87. Anyone else feel that?

    SBA were brilliant today. I thought we were much the better team. The only time Exeter got into the game was in the last 10 minutes when we say deep and looked tired. As for quality .... Jordan Willis finish sublime & grimmers left foot was ace
