Working at Butlins in Minehead when that game took place (lied about my age) with a shed full of Liverpool fans. They were gutted we didn't make it, easy win they thought, probably right

I was there, we were in the corner terracing next to the floodlight! Mixu pateleinen (sp) scored a screamer  Sad
Was there too, was right next to the supermarket and couldn't see the corner flag. That was my worst experience as a Swindon fan, up until that Brighton game.

The end was awful, locked in as they all celebrated, the bloke on the tannoy thanking all the Swindon fans for their support and telling us what a great night it was. Seem to remember it started to snow as well.

I forgot how much I hate John McGinley, what a wanker.

Horrible night, horrible away end, horrible weather, horrible memories, so close and yet so far away.

Not as bad for me as losing away at Wolves in 79 in the League Cup Semi though, that was a terrible memory for a teenager in the stands as I was back then, Andy fucking bastarding wanking Gray and a shit ref to add to it.

Spleen vented.

For me the defeat at Bolton in the LC semi final was the worst feeling watching the Town,3-1 up on aggregate going into the last 30 mins...........a date with Liverpool in the final was the prize snatched away.
I'd sort of forgotten about this one even though I was there, god we've had some rotten experiences as Swindon fans. The match had previously been postponed and iirc it was very late, we were only about 30 mins away.  My dad's friend wasn't able to attend the re-arranged fixture, so my friend came with us.  I don't actually remember much about the game apart from the sense of despair as it all went wrong and it was bloody cold as well. I also remember us being spat at and called Swindon slags as we left the ground.  An unpleasant end to a miserable night.

I was sat in my car outside the away end the night it was called off. The bloke in a burger van gave me the bad news. Found a pub just across the main road from the away end, they were showing viz cartoons on the tv...sid the sexist, the fat slags etc.  Smiley

You sure that was on the TV and you weren't just watching the locals behaving normally (for northerners)?

Same here, I started jumping up and down on my seat, when it gave way. I dusted myself down & did the same with the seat next to me...it met the same end. Nasty bruises in the morning.

I remember that well.  We were on a coach and we were not long on the M6 when the match was called off, so we stopped off at the nearest town for a few drinks.  Nedless to say after the first drink the local police asked us to leave, as some people we smashing glasses (Stupid I know.  It wasn't me by the way !).

As we got a police escort out of the town, some of the loonies on the coach were asking the driver to drive to the Villa v Leicester match, keep the motor running so we could scrap with Villa / Leicester then make a quick getaway.  Thankfully the driver didn't go anywhere near there.  Cheesy

A few of my other mates had actually got to Bolton's ground and had a drink in the main pub across the road, which kicked off big style

Try living here.

Try having a housemate whose boyfriend is a massive Brighton fan (In his defence he is a proper fan but it doesn't make it any easier).

Even worse, try having a boss who used to be a Chelsea 'fan' when Brighton were shit and is now a massive Brighton 'fan' now that they have a new stadium and are doing well. It makes me sick.

Tell me about it...... Everyone has jumped on the bandwagon down here, makes it worse that since their fortunes turned ours have turned for the worse.
