The worst experience is losing a semi final. At a final you've had the excitement, the build up, the publicity and been part of the occasion.No one remembers losing semi finalists and you feel as if it was all within touching distance when it's just snatched away.My worst moment was stood on the Holte End losing to a last minute goal off a corner off Tommy Booth''s knee v Man City in a different century!I have never felt so empty before or since. Admittedly the FA Cup was more of a trophy then.
I was a young lad back then, went to my first game that season in the gwladys and it scared the shit out of me, sat on one of the bars with my arl fella behind me. Arl fella and uncles went to every game that year, home and away, they always talk about it, they got booted out at Fotuna Sittard for smuggling ale into the ground. Went to the FA cup final without any tickets and still got in, just gave the fella on the turnstile a tenner. The Bayern Munich game still gives me goosebumps. Would love to be my age now back then
77 semi still haunts..at least the shite lost the final..
This in spades.I can still se that prick Thomas's face after he chalked off hamiltons "goal".About 5 years ago I worked in Treorchy(where Thomas is from)I looked out for him every day to see if I could flatten him with the van lol.
Fucking Treorchy - a hell of a place
Too royal.Stuck up there for the thick end of 4 months Brownie.Nightmare getting there and home and fucking freezing to boot.
Been watching the DVD of the semi-final against Bayern and the Andy Johnson derby a lot, after games to wash away the disappointment with some of our performances this season.There were so many good goals scored in that season but the goal from Sharp at Anfield and the bloke in the beige anarak, running onto the pitch, always sticks in the memory and brings a smile to my face.
Taught in Tonypandy for three years mate. Loved it but boy was it tough
I bet it was.When I had to finish playing for bedwas I ran the line for them for years and the abuse you got off them in that valley was unreal,and the further up you went the worse it got.
Remember going up to some hellhole that I can't pronounce a few years back and our local football team had been up there a few weeks before. There'd been murder up there and when we came up all the locals turned up and pelted us with beer cans and bottles as we warmed up. The tighthead got sent off for adding razor blades to his boots for the rucks. You still involved with Bedwas? Do you know John Welch and Stefan Sankala?
