  1. Remember that. As United fans had collapsed it the week before we didn't want to feel outdone.....
  2. First time I ever went there was to see Oscar's winner. 1976/77. Great night. Also remember the draw at the back end of the 1981/82 season when they had Crazy Horse as captain and I think it was the day the HMS Sheffield was sunk. Rather surreal atmosphere what with everything else going on. Think that was the game of the infamous Tony Towner dive that ultimately cost us promotion.
  3. If we'd wasted 20 minutes in the first leg, come away with a 1-0 win and drawn last night I doubt anyone would be talking about time wasting today. All part and parcel of the game. The problem for us is that everyone else does it better.
  4. The two outfield players he didn't use were Dunkley and Kamberi. Would bringing either of those on have improved things?
  5. Undoubtedly the games against Gillingham, Lincoln and Shrewsbury have cost us. Six games and just four points out of 18. Rotherham got 11 points from those games; Wigan got 15. It made the doubles over Wigan and MKD almost irrelevant. We have to start putting these sorts of games to bed.
  6. Whoever wins this tie will, in my opinion, go on to be promoted. The problem is I can easily see Sunderland getting something like a 3-0 tonight which we are simply never going to come back from. But if we do go through I do hope it's Wycombe. Considering they were our final opponents in this league last time it would be quite poetic.
  7. I've been following the 2011/12 season on this YouTube channel....sort of brings the twists and turns back. As for that day itself we actually went to Europa Park in Germany for a week. Arrived at the hotel and the first thing I did was swich on my app....it would have been about 4.45 UK time. United were losing....great....but we were only drawing and only a minute or two plus additional left. We never got late winners so I knew we'd thrown it away.....but..... We decided to go straight down for some grub and decided I wouldn't check the final score till we got there. A few minutes of "we might have.....but I know we haven't" until I eventually summoned up the courage to put myself out of my misery. F**k me.....couldn't believe it. Was absolutely certain from then United would blow it and we'd do it. Was a bloody brilliant week! If only lightening could strike twice.....
  8. Watched it last night. Excellent. Whilst Stephen Graham was superb (playing his usual role) I thought Vinette Robinson was even better.
  9. Last time I saw AFC Wimbledon was back in March 2008....at Chelmsford City. A virtual decider (which City won 3-2) for the Ryman League title.
  10. Currently playing Elite Dangerous. Don't know why I didn't pick this up when it first came out. Far and away my favourite game on my old Amiga was Elite Frontier (I still have the massive manual/story book somewhere) which I played for hundreds and hundreds of hours. Huge learning curve on ED but being a bit of a flight sim/space fanatic this is perfect. As very much a newbie I haven't yet tried the online world. To give an idea of its scale as at the end of January players had explored over 222 million unique star systems.....representing 0.05% of the galaxy.
  11. I always get excited about Milan-SR and also Paris-Roubaix but the Flanders classics are always a bit "meh" for me. Will probably watch the last bit of it but can't really be too fussed. Anyhow, official road book for those who are interested available here.... http://velorooms.com/index.php?topic=2384.720
  12. I seem to recall us beating Huddersfield twice in the league and then buggering it up in the play offs. Would have no worries about playing Oxford.
  13. Finished watching Pieces of Her on Netflix last night. Yet another over-complicated and overblown US drama. Seems to be de rigueur these days that "thrillers" have to be eeked out and become exercises in staying awake.....
  14. Saw Robert Plant was on Desert Island Discs(!) today so an excuse to listen to my favourite Zepp track. Also, just as an aside to say he once bought me a pint in The Golden Lion, Fulham High Street, circa 1978. Saw him in there on a couple of occasions as he then had a flat just round the corner. This particular time he bought everyone at the bar a drink; I'd timed it perfectly!
  15. The crowd actually was 11,185; called off ten minutes into the second half just after Willie Henderson and Peter Rodrigues had started chucking snowballs at each other. The replayed game we won 3-2 and Dave Sunley scored one of the best goals I've ever seen.
