Just wished we had a bit more entertainment and a few more goals, apart from that, a great night! I couldn't even start to do a match report on what went on, I'm still trying to catch my breath!

Why didn't Sidwell get a 10? He brought us some time when the grass fouled him!

Its 11:30 and I have just put my 6 and 8 year olds to bed. I can still here them chatting and laughing. They are never going to get up for school tomorrow. Fantastic game. At 0-2 I could not believe what was happening. My mate said we would win 3-2. What an idiot.

One of those games, that in years to come, we'll look back upon and say, 'Man was I glad that I was there that night'. What an atmosphere, what a result, what a night. Its games/results/nights like we've just witnessed, that make us fully realise and appreciate just why we love this great club of ours so much.

What a ridiculous game. My own personal highlight was my mazy run down the right wing on about 98 minutes, which ended in the goal mouth in front of the holte...

Did anyone else have that "we've blown it again" feeling when their second went in? And then!!!!!! That's what makes us different now. In times past we would have crumbled, but now we've got more bottle, more fight. And now, sing along everyone..."we're going to Wembley"

I truely believe we are only a couple of players away from having a great team, i realise that can only be measured by success, but in the league for example we can go 4th again with our game in hand, at Wembley and good draw at the w/end in the FA Cup.

However O'Neil with his lack of using the players available does make me anxcious, but i'm not going to critisise until there is a reason to do so and as yet there isn't.

Time to reflect after a few days away and a fantastic FA cup result against Brighton ..... but Please Please Please .... I REALLY HOPE MON plays Brad SENIOR in the FINAL .... against either Manc side they will have a party if Brad JUNIOR is in goal .... responsible for at least 2 of the goals tonight ..... HOWEVER I'm still FRILLED to bits we are in the Final and Drawn Wolves/Palace in the FA Cup... Now just the LITTLE task of beating the Arse on Wednesday eh ???
