2002 League Cup run


Recommended Posts

This is easily our best cup run since 1993 and went against expectations considering how crap we were.

 

It seems to have went under the radar a bit.

 

Some good memories from it.

 

Beating the pigs, beating Villa away and stuffing Watford.

 

Well beaten in the semis in the reverse of the 1993 semi.

 

Any memories or fave moments from this run?

Beating pigs was season before in which we also got to the quarter finals. 

 

The run we had the following season was

Bury a - Round 1

Sunderland h - Round 2

Crystal Palace h - Round 3

Aston Villa a - Round 4

Watford h - Quarter Finals 

Blackburn - Semi Finals

That game against United was my first Derby. Blackburn away seemed wild as a 13 year old. Andy Cole was brilliant in those 2 games. 

That game against united was the first time I've really experienced the importance of the fixture. Went to Wembley in 93 and saw us beat them again the following season at Hillsborough but I was only 5 or 6 at the time.

Also Ekoku nearly blasting Schmeichels head off at Villa Park. Sibon nearly bloody did the same thing to me in the warm up!

I went to that game and missed the goal. Never tried avoiding queues for refreshments since then though lol

Remember watching this goal on the ITV Digital highlights (remember them and how they impacted football), the best thing was the sound of the crowd shouting ‘Gooo on!’ which got louder the closer Hamshaw got to their goal.

Nice to see him beat that "Alpie" to score too.

Having watched (and enjoyed) this yet again, I now wonder if the guy who took the Watford corner has ever been involved in coaching Izzy Brown how to take corners.
