Fantsatic write up of one of the best days of my life (so far!)
Great article - brought a tear to the eye....
Really? I had connections at Sheff Utd and Sheff W....you couldn't get tickets love for money....unheard of ...but your mates from school just bowled up ???The best day out I ever had !! Was 16 and got served in an off licence near Wembley,walking up Wembley way with a crate of ale and a big flag. Sat outside the turnstiles for a good few hours drinking !! when we got in the first people I bumped into were a group of lads from school who had never been to a city game before,lets just say I got a bit angry with them for denying real fans the chance to get a ticket !!
Brings a tear to my eye.
I had that feeling as well...nothing to lose now, go for it... Whole day Out Cost me nothing.... Betted on a city win with tottenham fans in the pub the night before and collected after the game... Drank champagne and slept in the pub on the gaffers couch.. Great, but as I sat in Sixfields recently it seeme as if I had dreamt it all... We're a Million miles away now... And we have that twat RFC posting such apologistic shite just to make the situation seem even worse.....Brings a tear to my eye.
I loved that "Go for it City" bouncing around Wembley. When Clive Allen scored that early goal everyone around me was groaning & I suddenly found some-sort of inner voice & turned - grabbed some poor sod by the scuff of his neck & just kept saying to everyone "We'll win now, we'll do it...we keep on coming back...we'll win"
That feeling that everyone thinks I'm mad is still with me lol
