    Nice article, and thanks.

    Someone once said, “Football is a funny old game.” I was thinking this this evening, and realised that the first team we played against in this league, was none other than our old sparing partners – Luton Town. A club, who in my opinion we have more in common than most. Both sets of fans have been hard done by, both clubs have played at higher levels in the game, and both sets of fans have some empathy to each others plight. Not to mention the things included in this article.

    It’ll be a good game on the 21st, and no matter who wins (and I hope that it is Wimbledon), a little or large wrong has been righted.

    A fabulous read that sums up our journey and makes me immeasurably proud of what we have all achieved. Football may have lost its soul sometime around Italia 90 but the shoots of recovery at Wimbledon and places like Exeter, Halifax and FC United hint at a brighter future.

    Good write up, and kudos to Fleetwood for giving it their best – especially at the start of the second half (that must have been one hell of a half-time talk by their manager). Only one or two petulant challenges, so Fleetwood played the game in the right spirit. Their fans were a credit too. We wish them all the best, but I hope we’re not seeing them again next season! A sporting handshake to Luton too – may the best team on the day win up in Manchester!

    A shame both clubs can’t win the final. I have a feeling that one club probably needs to win more than the other for a number of reasons which may just be enough to tip the scales. Or it may just add too much pressure.

    It’s amazing what a clean start can do for you Ian ;)
