    Nice work Tom. Great that fans cultured and developed away from Plough Lane appreciate that heart is where the home is. (I hope that didn’t sound too patronising). We are now and have been for too long a team in exile. Whilst league status is making me as excited as a teenage girl with tickets for a Twilight premier the real wig-flipper will be going home.

    If I was you I’d start correcting that “haven’t been to many” and start the love affair up again.

    As a Plough Lane ST holder I hated Selhurst with a passion.

    Never held a ST there at all and even refused to go for the first few months, selling our fanzine outside and then buggering off to the pub to spend the takings.

    Even towards the end I never went more than 15 times in a season and even then only because it was a social gathering in a pub and the football was a diversion from that.

    It even took me about 8 years of going before I saw the players come out of the tunnel such was our lack of desire to enter the hell hole.

    Goes without saying I got a ST as soon as AFCW started.

    Now…let’s get back to Wimbledon!!!!
