    That was a great day. I was in my final year at university, the day before I handed in my dissertation so other than my finals the following month I felt a weight off my shoulders and came down from Loughborough for the weekend.

    Yes, it had been a long long time waiting to celebrate a real success and the first one with Mrs Willis at my side. Great memories.

    My son had just been born so I managed to get to the game but wasnt able to hang around for beers !
     
  6. I saw that banner at Bristol, and I was at Fulham too on that day. There was a pitch invasion in front of the Fulham Cottage, but the team would not come out to celebrate until we left the pitch, if I remember rightly?

    Well Robbo ended up on the fans shoulders so maybe they just gave up !

    I think the issue was Fulham needed a result to reach the play offs so there was a worry about fans clashing.

    They did but still sacked Ray Wilkins in the middle of them!

    We didn't get to see the trophy though.
     
  9. I think some of the players got caught up in the immediate pitch invasion, but made it to the cottage, which is where the changing rooms were. After that we were all chanting for them to come out again, but it was announced they would not come back out until the pitch was cleared?

    I really can't remember if they did or not, but I think they probably did?

    You must remember this,
    A miss is just a miss,
    A goal is just a goal,
    The fundamental things apply
    It's in our soul.

    Something about Bristol City being champions that season. They were a point ahead of us with 4 games to go at that point, so after the draw they were still one ahead with three to play. The rest is glorious history.

    Didn't we both have 50 points by Christmas but seemed to draw endless games afterwards with....

    Yes you have guessed it .

    Goals given away late on!

    Would have got 100 points otherwise easily .

    It was a great day indeed,very sunny I recall.
    My brother and I saw Cameron outside Bishop's Park eating a 99!
    He looked quite menacing, even with an ice cream!
    Lovely ground CC.

  18. That was the gist of it Willis, it was basically claiming that they would be champions though I do not remember the exact wording :cool:

    I always thought it just said "champions".
     
  20. You might well be right Pete it might have just said that, what I do remember was that we really took the piss when they failed to beat us.

    The league table facility on it is fascinating. The only other site I’ve seen that on was the now defunct Statto.
