Yes, it's been 5 years since that amazing & wonderful day. How so much as changed but I wouldn't change a thing. Like Wigan, once you have won it, they can't take it away from you. Very vivid memories of the day. Like all of us lucky to be there, shared the day with family & close friends.

We are in Div 4 and Cardiff in the PL!! What a great day and I was especially looking forward to this one and Rug posted it late!! Like Matt I shared the day with wife and son.

I think I was at Swindon back in 77 too but I have been there so many times..
