Overall probably a bit fortunate to get a draw, but we battled for a draw which was made even more difficult when Danny Hylton was sent off in the second half.
A great victory 2-0 against Cambridge, the double rainbow above the ground must have been an omen. Then on to Kentish Town to see The Fall. First time I have seen them so it was quite interesting to watch the behaviour of the front man Mark E Smith as he shuffled around stage fiddling with amps and constantly looking for one of his many microphones. The music was good, the vocals not so good!
A good away day in Cambridge. A good pub the Fort St George before the game with nice real ale and lunch, followed by a riverside walk to the ground and a great victory.
Took Danny to this F A Cup game at Peterborough. The only surprise to this result was that we did not lose 8-0. Peterborough from the league above us were far superior. They are at the present time the highest scoring team in the top four divisions and but for Mark Tyler’s goalkeeping would have won by a far more convincing scoreline. But we did hit the post at 1-0 and I was beginning to think we might have got a undeserved draw until the second goal was scored.
As today is the final of the League Cup (Capital Cup) between Bradford City and Swansea City I thought it would be a good idea to post a picture of the League Cup ( Littlewoods Cup) that Luton Town won in the best final ever when they beat Arsenal 3-2 at Wembley on 24/8/1988. With seven minutes left to play Luton were losing 2-1 , but with goals from Danny Wilson and Brian Stein we went on to win the game. What a great day!.
The end of our cup run with a 0-3 defeat at home. A bit of a disappointing result with mistakes being made for the goals especially the first goal. Attendance 9768.
