Yeah all our fair weather fans turned up, but none of our players did. Who knows could be 7 games from wembley?
I will trot out my often used phrase "A brilliant day ruined by 90 minutes of crap football".
A phrase used far too often for away games.
It was fantastic to meet up with so many faces from the past.
The pre-match atmosphere was fantastic around the ground and in the pubs.
The match was awful . The only thing worse than the game was to see and hear 32,000 Shrimpers act as though it was a slience contest. It would be virtually impossossible to ever have as many people in one space - without a sound. Pin drop!
I daresay if we get to Wembley again for the PO final we'll take considerably fewer anyway, maybe 20k at best, as it won't have the same novelty value to those who aren't really that bothered about the club. And conversely it will probably improve the atmosphere as those there will care a lot more and the singing hardcore won't be so spread out.
