I've only ever been to 2 games like that before and all of them involved a dream, but I never felt the quite as good as I did when Roberts equalised. Jesus I fell over onto the row in front of me and ended up 15 seats down the row, then my legs turned heavy and I could hardly breathe. The others were:
VE day where we had to beat Newcastle to get one hand on the prem
and the derby play off semi final when we realised our long held dream of promotion was slipping away again.
Yep on both counts. I thought the atmosphere around Manchester, on the tram down to the game and in the ground was unbelievable.
After we scored, my heart was beating faster than its ever done before. I thought it was going to break through my rib cage and tear through my skin. My knees we weak and i had a sick feeling in my tummy - almost like being nervous but 100 times worse. I thought there was nothing going to stop us the way we were playing. I could only see one winner. At one point i stupidly started to think about making the trip to Wembley.
Still, it just goes to show football can be a cruel game at times. We deserved to be playing in the cup final, but Chelsea are there instead. There is always next year though.
By the way Moon, the two games where i have felt like that before are VE day like you, and the Worthington cup final after Cole scored to put us 2-1 up,
