The Highs And Lows Of A Footy Fan - In 60 Seconds

Oddly enough when I was playing with the Duc on Friday night I had 5Live on the radio which was previewing the weekends football.  And they focused on League 1 as it was the last fixtures of the season.  Brentford were due to play Doncaster.  After 45 games they were only 2 points apart, Donny on 81 in second and Brentford on 79 in third.  With only two getting promotion automatically it had basically come down to a one game shoot-out.  If Brentford could beat Doncaster they would steal that last promotion place away from their opponents.

And so with Tash out Saturday afternoon I was focused on the radio.  Every time they went to Griffin Park it was stalemate.  Doncaster seeming happy to play the game out for the point they needed.

The 90 minutes had passed.  Doncaster's army of away fans must have been preying for the final whistle.  This this happens.  Thankfully 5live clicked across to the game just in time.  Best end to a football season ever?  Quite possibly!  Click here to listen for yourselves.

Thankfully, in the Premier League, Spurs grabbed a last minute equaliser against Wigan, and it looks more and more like it will be a shoot-out against Villa and Wigan for the final relegation spot ... and we happen to play them last game of the season too!  We play Sunderland tonight which really has become a must win game for us as it would mean we could open up a 5 point gap on Wigan.  I think every Villa fan is preying we have more than a 3 point gap on Wigan come the last day of the season!
