The last 3 for me. Bl00dy Grimsby in1993, we needed to really beat them to go up, scrapped a 2-1 win, West Ham went up by 1 goal & we lose in the play offs, heartbreak time & a decade of dread followed. The loss to WBA in 1994 & our last away game during a first prem season, 2004, our dear rivals from the previous season. The result didn't matter to us & it showed on the pitch, they were already relegated.
