Justin Rose - @JustinRose99:

Danny Baker - @prodnose:

When the Man City coach leaves the ground tonight it will officially be the most embarrassing thing to come out of Wigan since Limahl.

Paul Kendrick - @PKendrickWIG:

FT Wigan Athletic 1 Manchester City 0.

Football, eh? Bloody hell.

MacGraff Leuluai - @Leuluai:

Wow Wigan

Gemma Davies - @Gem_Davies:

Not condoning Wigan fans going onto the pitch, but City fans saying that excuses them throwing bottles during the game (at Byrne, Walton & Power) is just ridiculous. Let us have our moment

Greg Farrimond - @GregFarrimond:

If there’s a luckier mascot than @JosephsGoal then I’ve yet to meet him/ her. What a kid.

The Sportsman - @TheSportsman:

Quick reminder that Wigan to win 1-0 was 55/1 earlier...

The same price as a Man City 7-0 win!

SJL - @livesey99:

THE GREATEST NIGHT IN OUR HISTORY! #wafc

Steven McCormack - @McCormackSteve1:

From @ANZStadium to @LaticsOfficial in 48 hours with my little pal.

Up the Latics #FACup #wafc

Sam Whyte - @SamWhyte_:

Simply no better football club to support #wafc

Gary Lineker - @GaryLineker:

Bloody hell, what a finish from Will Grigg. The FA Cup folks.

Andy Hampson - @andyhampson:

I’m afraid there have been some unsavoury scenes following the game as a pitch invasion by Wigan fans got out of hand. A lot of advertising hoardings have been ripped out and thrown

Wigan Harriers - @wigan_harriers:

Congratulations to everyone at Wigan Athletic from all of us at Wigan Harriers on their fantastic FA Cup win over Manchester City.
