Hello Shrimpers!

I'm The Luxury Fan, and I write mildly bizarre lower-league match reports. I was at Wembley yesterday, and here's my write up of the play-off final: https://theluxuryfan.wordpress.com/2015/05/24/not-with-a-bang-but-a-shrimper/. Congratulations on promotion, and what a game. Hope everyone is enjoying the summery celebrations and massively overdoing it. That's what football's all about, after all.

Any feedback much appreciated. If you want to get in contact outside the forum, I'm @TheLuxuryFan on Twitter and on Facebook, here: https://www.facebook.com/theluxuryfan.

Cheers,

TLF

Not a bad read at all. I think you missed the big push on Corr that was a clear penalty that the ref got very wrong

I knew I'd get called up on that! :smile: I've seen the replay and it did look a penalty (especially by the standard of the push on Mawson), but it was very hard to see from where I was sitting at the other end of the pitch. Since I don't usually have the benefit of replays, I thought I'd leave it up for debate.

No debate mate, nailed on, but as you were viewing from Wycombe's end they probably told you Corr tripped!!

Good stuff. I think it was Corr rather than Atkinson however that Sam Saunders clashed with.

Aside from that and the blatant penalty, nice one.

Thanks! I'll definitely try to make it down; I'm London-based but I'm always bang up for a trip to Essex. The Wycombe end was not the happiest place to be come the finish, that's for sure.
