Vital Latics member Stan_disher gives us his thoughts on that dramatic game with West Ham last Sunday, it`s a rollercoaster of emotions set against a ticking clock, over to you Stan:
Sunday 15th May 2011
15.00 – Arrive at stadium, full of hope and in anticipation of a ‘good’ result. Will we get 3, 4, 5 goals today? Should give our goal difference a boost today.
16.00 – A couple of beers later and we are well up for this. Looks like a good crowd, West Ham are noisy, should be a good atmosphere. I hope the team respond.
16.10 – The team have started well, we should be 2 up by now.
16.11 – Oh Sh*t
16.26 – Double Sh*t. They’ve only had 2 attacks and scored from them both. I don’t believe what I’m seeing
16.50 – I’m so depressed, don’t know what to do, I’ll have a walk on the concourse. Never mind, it’s been a good journey.
17.05 – Back from the concourse, team are soon out. Is that Sammon and Moses I see? Brave move from RM.
17.17 – Yes we’re back in it, can we get a point from this I wonder.
17.26 – I don’t believe it, Sammon done the business. We’ll win this now, no stopping us.
17.28 – Brief break from the pressure, that’s really good timing by those Millwall boys, poor Avram, he must feel like cr*p.
17.45 – I thought we’d have sorted this by now, running out of time, come on just a bit more effort, please, please.
17.48 – I’m glad they brought Parker on, he’s clearly not fit and it’s not working for them.
17.51 – We’re never gonna score, we’re going down, so depressed, come on Charlie.
17.55 – Wow, did that really happen? Have I died and gone to heaven? How many times have I screamed ‘yes’ in the last 3 minutes? Am I making any sense to anyone I scream at? Is this the best feeling ever?

How many times have I watched a replay of the match (second half)?
