All Fool's Day and no home game between 1972 and 2002. Me I was at three between 67 and 72.

I went to the Burnely game; magnificent atmosphere and we were on our way! The Fulham game was great and I got home to watch the usual vindictive, spitefull Chris Coleman post match interview about how his team were the better side and played the better football. Strangely I don't think he's worked since he left "the cottagers"; and they mostly are.

Yes, just the Burnley game for me. Remember listening to the Fulham match on the radio & sreaming as we continued our great escape.

Rug - Coleman had a few months at Real Sociedad too after a recommendation from John Toshack - welshman who had also managed the Spanish club.
