  1. Made 26 appearances in his one season at Southampton, by March, and his last game, or one of his last games anyway, was the League Cup Final. Kenworthy
  2. From the Colindale branch of Morrisons at 7pm on a Thursday, with John Barnes and Ray Parlour. Just when you thought the draw couldn't get more tinpot...
  3. Speaking of penalties in 1995 - knowing us we'd probably have been 3-0 up in the shootout and still lost. I've still never seen another team manage that, before or since.
  4. We'd still have become the first team to lose an FA Cup Final on penalties. It's the Wednesday Way.
  5. Assuming the last weekend will be 2nd/3rd May, the same weekend as this year, we should be at home. Pigs have an away fixture scheduled. Can't find confirmation of the last fixture date but the Playoff Final is the last weekend in May so that seems likely as the semis start the weekend after the season ends and then it's usually less than a couple of weeks to the final.
  6. Or to put it another way, the only row with normal legroom apart from the front row and the middle one with an aisle in front. I've suffered the seating in the South for a few cup games and friendlies and I don't know how people can bear it. Are they all below average height , because I couldn't sit with my feet flat on the floor without breaking my knees and I'm not even particularly tall.
  7. And Preston the year before was even worse! Just had a quick count and I think we've only won 2 of the last 14 times that we've played away from home in the opening league game of the season, Brighton 2014 and Swindon 2003. You have to go back to 1990 for the last time before that. (The opening game that is, not just the first away game)
  8. Yes - and we'll know whether we'll be home or away on Boxing Day because the pigs fixture list will be out.
  9. We'll find out tomorrow if, or more likely that, we're away in Boxing Day. Again.
  10. Yep, first thing I thought of, even before his goal at the sty. People tend to remember those two goals but not so much the screamer that he scored against PL Fulham in the FA Cup as well. Maybe because we lost the game 2-1 but it was a belter.
  11. Bit selective to mention Simon Coleman but not Des Walker...
  12. And that smilie reminds me that our very own won the Cup Winners Cup with Man Utd not long after losing the 1991 LC Final to us. .
