Delight for Fergie
A day of jubilation for Manchester United
"That's fantastic - three Doubles in five years. The boys were marvellous."
"This has been a tremendous season and once again the players produced it when it mattered."
"We tried to reorganise the team after Keane went off but Teddy Sheringham was marvellous, great movement and a terrific finish.
"We had big a decision to make about whether to risk some players but you have to trust them to tell you if they are okay. Now we can start thinking about Europe."
There was great joy for Sheringham, the consensus choice as man of the match after a performance which included a goal a minute after his introduction.
"It's amazing how this game changes around. One minute you are down, the next you are up.
"We had problems with viruses but we got on with it and made the most of what we've got."
Paul Scholes, scorer of the second goal, was one of those with the flu and revealed who else had suffered.
The England international did not believe that his strike was that special.
"It wasn't the best of goals, I didn't hit it too well but it went in thankfully.
Ryan Giggs, whose amazing goal in the semi-final against Arsenal helped his team to Wembley, was philosphical about what was his third FA Cup medal at the age of just 25.
"It helped getting the early goal then the second. It was hard for Newcastle to get back into the game with the weather like that.
For Newcastle, on the wrong end of a 2-0 defeat in successive Cup finals, there was obvious disappointment.
"We were punished for our mistakes," said manager Ruud Gullit.
"The effort was right. The players worked hard and I can't ask for more, but every time we were on top we made a mistake and that cost us two goals.
"In the end we had to be thankful they did not get three, four or five."
