Oxford (A), Carlisle, Fulham (A), Sunderland. Parked car on the Thames pathway at Fulham came back after the game and the car was flooded by the very high tide!! Soggy trip home but eh we won.

5. All the home games from 1989-2006. Remember playing very well against Blackburn in 2006 as we we fought for our prem lives. Friedal made many great saves & Craig Bellemy scored 2 corkers forthem. We should have won 8-2.
