Happy #MindTheGap Day

I want nervous at all!

I’ve never been more certain of a win than that day. 

 

All my piggy mates were ringing me up from the boozer beforehand and having me listen to their promotion party at MK Dons.

 

When the Antonio goal went in I did a full lap of the packed boozer I was in and people (Spanish mainly) just stared.

 

The Wycombe game was a day to remember (in flashbacks).

Nervous wreck before the match 

 

Got home at 9am the following day after celebrating a little too much 

It would be impossible to celebrate THAT day too much!

I wasn't nervous at all.

 

Think we all knew we was going up after the Carlisle game. 2nd or otherwise.

That’s what I thought at 6am

 

At 9am I knew differently

An unbelievable ending to the season. Couldn't have scripted it better. 

 

Mind the gap, 5 points clear, 2 games in hand. The game they could afford to lose. They did lose and we never looked back. 

 

Then the icing on the cake when Simonsen sent that ball into orbit. Pure ambrosia by the football gods.

That was pretty much the perfect day, wasn't it?

The weekend before was the day everything fell into place. Brentford and Stevenage. We had flipping Wycombe at home and 40,000 fans even we can’t get that wrong.

It was a good, but the perfect day was the week before.

 

You couldn't have scripted how that turned out.

Seriously? United nearly always fail when the pressure is on. I'd have said them failing was a foregone conclusion. The question was would we be able to take advantage?

Walked down to Hillsborough with a family of Wycombe supporters who had parked nearby. They were already relegated but even they were looking forward to the match, the atmosphere and a very memorable day for them, too!

An amazing day and never felt as nervous despite us completely controlling the match.

 

Struggle to remember anything from the match as I was at the bottom of the kop and hit by 3 inflatable swimming pools, 5 inflatable sharks, a blow up (female??) doll and a giant banana.

Funny that innit? I wasn't slightly nervous either. One of my mates was bricking it though.

 

Think there used to be someone on OT who's username was 05/05/12. Or did I make that up?

Brentford away the week before was epic. London away day, win, pubs after to watch United blow it and dash to St Pancras.

A great day to cap off a great season. 

 

Remember watching Dem Blades against Stevenage after we'd beaten Brentford. 

 

Was consigning myself to the playoffs, though I fancied our chances with the form we were in. 

 

United go 2 down (hang on a minute)...and then get it back to 2-2 (oh ffs)...with Beattie having one cleared off the line in the last minute. 

 

Full time and suddenly it's in our own hands. 

 

Wycombe game was incredible. So was the excessive drinking afterward :duntmatter:

Our form in the run in was incredible. I'll never forget that win v Carlisle in injury time. Brilliant
