Makes me proud but also sad, to dismantle that team like that was madness, as Alan Evans said, we should have gone on and dominated the 80's, it was all there for us.
The Fear
As DM lifted the cup and the tears of joy streamed down my face, i heard a guy who was stood to rows in front say to his mate "look at him - he's crying!" if that guy ever reads these forums i can tell him here and now "i still cry EVERY time i see any part of that day (2 days)
