    I was a bit of a jonah for us that season in local so watched with family at home which I'll never regret. Head gone at halftime. Manc mate rings as he was covering me for work next day to console me and that I should just go out on the piss anyway. "No team could live with that, don't be embarrassed" Patronising or caring to this day only he knows. He wanted to puke by midnight I'm told. Old dear sitting on the stairs with rosary beads at pens. Walking round half shocked half dreamland. Off to local the lads banned me from to walk in to a sea of red and a mate above the crowd on our high table strutting like Rick flair. The token bitter manc in his white milan jersey being slaughtered. The 2 hour kip before a breakfast roll and cans in front of SSN all day. The homecoming and its then you realise just how special this club is because its us and only us that pull that batshit crazy night off. Magical.

    Watched every match at home with a 6 pack of skips. Broke the habit and went to the pub for the final. Left at halftime, went to the shop to grab the skips and got home in time for the 2nd half. Stevie needs to be sharing the credit around.

    My brother and my da went away on holiday to Spain or somewhere when the final was on.

    Brother went down to the pub early "to get a seat" and my da followed him down for an hour or so before K/O.

    Anyway long story short brother wanted to leave at half time and he was walking out and my da made him stay so he could finish his pint. A few minutes later it was 3-3 :) Lucky my da is a slow drinker.

    We made my ma watch all the CL games but she wasnt allowed to watch league games. She was out and only got home at half time.

    This is her victory as much as the rest :L

    Couldn’t afford Istanbul so heading over to Liverpool with mate. We stayed at mates of ours who had settled there after going University. Went to O’Neills that night, manc mate calls and leaves a voicemail after Maldini scores and says it’s going to be 90-nil. Liverpool supporting mate texted me something at half time can’t remember what but I texted him back (just in blind faith) ‘just keep the faith’ I think O’Neills were doing a pound a bottle of Carlsberg. Table was full of them...Smicer scores and the table gets tossed with beer everywhere. Extra time and pens were the worst agony...but then...mate bought a bottle of champagne and sprayed it all over some poor girl (by accident at first!). Remember walking back towards Spenser Road and called the manc mate ‘Ahhhh 90 nil me hole!’
    Went up to Anfield the next day and there was barely a soul around. Had that manc mate change my flight home so I could stay for the homecoming. Morning after absolutely dying get a call from that manc mate saying did I land yet...he had booked me an AM flight but I couldn’t swore he told me PM.

    so had to stay for another day...on the rip again. Eventually got home in a slow boat to Belfast. Manc mate had to pick me up and drive me out to Belfast international to pick up my car.

    What a few days though...the best of my life!

    Flip the colours around and that would have made a gorgeous home kit

    This is a very good development. As long as it’s safe, it’s the way forward.

    Heavy Crowd collapse few rows behind me in lower King for the City CL game & don't know how I kept my footing and held back the young lad who was standing on the seat in front of me. That's the hairiest it got for me. Safety wise today's news really will be welcomed from a safety point of view
