Lets wallow in the gloating before we start dissection
I decided to go for a long walk yesterday morning, unable to face the BBC Commentary or the BBC Videprinter. My mate, Chris rung me and amongst a barrage of noise he told me: "We're 1-0 up, Hughes scored."
But then it was silence as I mooched around Chicago checking my phone more times than is normal
Then my brother who was unable to go to the game because he was at work text me: "Is it still 2-2?"
he asked. Why you asking me for, I live 4,000 miles away I thought. Then the phone rang, It was Chris, breathless and sounding exhausted. "2-2 son,"
he said. "Are they down or not?"
I asked impatiently."Oh yes!"
he said. Then I was passed to my Dad and we shouted at each other above the noise for a couple of minutes and that was that.
I got home, as happy as if we had won the Champions League and proud that for once my team did what they were asked off. And although a 6-0 win would have been nice, the way it came about was much more painful for the stripey annoying twats.
I have read a couple of differing opinions today. On one side some fans are disappointed that we have lost these atmosphere charged two games and on the other it is good riddance to bad rubbish to a side whose supporters, chairman and shit-hole of a ground deserve to be back to where they belong. By the amount of messages from other clubs' fans on the Netaddicks board
it looks like they are sure to receive a warm welcome!
If Andrew "he loves the club"
Johnson leaves along with Routledge then this side (as they were for most of last season) is ordinary and unlike 4 years ago when they stayed up on the last day of the season, they could follow Bradford, Franchise FC, Forest, Wednesday and Barnsley down and down.
Anyway enough of them, lets worry about us but today is not the day to dissect our season, we all know we finished the season abysmally and some of our 'better' performances were turgid to say the least. Major surgery is needed and we will have plenty of time to discuss that amongst ourselves now the season is over. Remember the name John Hartson though!
Finally, my thoughts are with Kevin Lisbie. I may not be his biggest fan but no one deserves this misfortune and I hope he makes a speedy recovery from this rare condition
