Took this on the pitch during the mayhem on that incredible day...
I felt exactly the same as you, two such extremes of emotion I'll never forget it, what a moment
What a fantastic photo
I inadvertently travelled down the staircase the same time as the flare, looked brilliant but was rather warm. Wouldn't change it for the world mind.
I remember distinctly being at work; fortunately I was working somewhere the game was on. I literally couldn't watch as Knockaert stepped up, I was think I was almost on the floor with my head in my hands. I remember the guy I was working with screaming it had been saved and looked up as Fessi went past their full back to cross the ball in. Absolute jubilation, I went absolutely bonkers and even all this time later it's a truly surreal, once in a lifetime moment.
Spot the difference.
Is that @Filbert with his head in his hands there?
She’s only saying she doesn’t like it to make sure you go on your own?
Bloke behind me in his early 50s was going berserk at the ref for awarding the penalty, and was still calling him & Knocktart every name under the sun as Anya passed to Fessi; when the ball hit the net he just slumped onto a gangway step holding his head in his hands as he rocked back & forth muttering ‘what just happened?’
Where did those ten years go?!
I can look back on it now and appreciate it for its remarkable drama but at the time it was utterly surreal.
