First name up is of course Michael Laudrup, with several papers going with "Laud and Proud" as their back page headlines.
The Swansea manager is hailed in the Telegraph as an "inspired choice" who has paid off handsomely for the Swans: "(Brendan) Rodgers’s move from the Liberty Stadium to Anfield might have ended Swansea’s rise. Instead the 'Jack Army' found a new leader with an impeccable background," writes Paul Hayward.
Hayward adds that the 'Swanselona' approach has been, "taken to an even higher level by Laudrup, whose experiences as a player with Barcelona and Real Madrid are apparent in his subtle marshalling of Swansea’s flowing play."
He also praises Laudrup's eye for a bargain in picking up Spanish striker for just £2 million Michu, and funnily enough the Spanish press believes that it is Michu – not two-goal heroes Nathan Dyer of Jonathan de Guzman – who was the true hero of Wembley.
"A buzz ran around Wembley every time the ball fell to Michu. He gave the impression that something would happen, and it invariably did," the paper writes breathlessly.
The BBC unearth an even stranger hero, picking up on a report in Germany's Bild: Swansea goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel, who apparently "stole the show" as he was called upon to do no more than concede just four goals or fewer.
If you think that's odd, however, The Sun takes the cake: they anoint Bradford goalkeeper Matt Duke, who let in three goals before conceding a penalty and getting himself sent off. When you read their report, however, you realise that they're right: this is a man who beat cancer, and helped Bradford through a series of penalty shoot-outs just to get to Wembley. We doubt he'll ever have to pay for a drink in Bradford again.
The big transfer – or rather non-transfer – story of the day is the news in the Daily Star that Yaya Toure is in line for a new, five-year, £55 million contract to keep him at Manchester City.
That piece is backed up by an interview in The Sun: "Normally I change clubs after one or two years but it’s different here. I want to stay longer. Sometimes you’re not happy with something or you don’t feel comfortable in the city and you need change — but not here. Of course I’d like to end my career here," Toure told the paper.
The new Jamie Carragher has been found, according to the Daily Mail: Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers sees Dutch international Stefan De Vrij as the perfect replacement for Carragher ,and watched the 21-year-old skipper Feyenoord to a win over PSV Eindhoven at the weekend.
Swansea's Ashley Williams is on the radar of Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham after his key role in helping the Swans to League Cup glory, according to the Metro.
That would be the least of the problems brought to Swansea by their own success: just about every paper in Europe speculates openly on what will happen to Michael Laudrup now that he can write his own ticket, despite the Dane insisting he can't wait to guide the Swans into Europe next year.
