semi-final defeat to Manchester City. Drove up to Villa Park with my father through the pouring rain fully expecting to sweep them aside like we had WBA three years before.
Paul Power's extra time free-kick haunts me still. That volcanic eruption of joy in one half of the Holte End when the ball flew past Cooper, the other half a vast army of Town fans stunned into motionless silence.
It was spectacular visual theatre from where we sat, but God it felt awful. Just about bearable to watch again. I suspect Spurs would have beaten us in the final but in those days losing a semi was so much worse.
weekend .... there's the Friday frisson of childish excitement that this Saturday might mark a historic turning point ... a moment when a sultry silky last gasp winner retrospectively symbolised our relentless march back to the very top ... only for those desperate dreams to splinter and smash on the rocks of injury time reality via possibly the kneecap of Luke Chambers.
Then again it's June so we wouldn't be playing anyway .... and you never know ... next season of all seasons ... whenever it starts ... might be different ... so season tickets and hopes have been renewed.
.. otherwise known as former Town loanee Tayo Edun .. have the longest name in English professional football?
I suspect he does ... let's hope for no Blackburn heroics tomorrow even if it means we can't hear Lincoln fans try and sing ... there's only one Adetayo Oluwatosin Olusegun Adio Aduramigba Iretioluwa Edun.
For now at least, the decent Labour Party of Attlee, Wilson, Blair and Brown has been vanquished.
It is a Trojan Horse with Corbyn as a figurehead directed by a cabal of far-left extremists who deceitfully conceal from the public the true scale of their agenda.
What they really want is best summarised by the overarching aims of the Communist Party "... to achieve a socialist Britain in which the means of production, distribution and exchange will be socially owned and utilised in a planned way for the benefit of all."
With such allies it's easy to see why a Corbyn majority would be a complete economic catastrophe for this country just like every other Marxist regime that's previously wormed its way into power.
... appears to imply, possibly rightly, that parliament derives its sovereignty from the people and therefore does not possess a divine right to defy the biggest democratic mandate in British political history.
Recent shenanigans are not really about blocking no deal, it's all about blocking Brexit and parliamentarians are hoping millions of working-class people are just too stupid to work it out.
