Not going to football on a Saturday has become an accepted normal over the last few months but something about tomorrow's fixture and a bit of spring sun is making me long to get back to it.

I have been lucky enough to see 3
Football 1966
Rugby Union 2003
Cricket 2019
Only on live TV though. All were brilliant.
1966 was just before I was born.
Rugby was brilliant but wasn't football.
Cricket, I want us to win but not that bothered.

I would take going to Wembley and winning the PO's over never winning any of the above again.

I thought it would get easier but it gets harder with every passing game

Only a few more games to go now. Home stretch now...
Yeh, not long now. We've only missed;
  1. The most important league game in our post war history
  2. Our first ever championship play off final against one of our biggest rivals
  3. The last game at Griffin Park
  4. The first game at Lionel Road
  5. Our first ever major cup semi final
  6. Seeing one of the best strikers in our history live
Hey ho. :(

7. Wining our last 7 games in a row to get promotion to the PL.

It will be just like none of the above happens and we left the SWFC match having been promoted :cool:

It does make you think. If this would have happened say, 15 years ago during the 2006/07 season, we'd have 'missed':

1. Losing at home to Yeovil, Northampton, Scunthorpe, Rotherham and Cheltenham
2. Losing 0-4 at home to Doncaster in front of 4,296 fans
3. Losing 0-3 at home to Luton in the 1st round of the FA Cup in front of 3,005 fans
4. The deadly partnership of Clyde Wijnhard and Neil Shipperly racking up an impressive tally of 0 goals in 18 appearances
5. A free Cadbury's creme egg?

I'd be campaigning for more lockdown.

Liverpool at present
I'm glad I missed another defeat at the national stadium. I have fonder memories of sitting behind a dirty great stanchion and lots of big men in big coats at the 69 FA Cup Final than I do of any of my subsequent football visits to Wembley or the Millennium. And I detest the programmes, too.
