Loved the day every single glorious moment of it,,until I saw this: TICKETS UNLIKELY TO REACH GENERAL SALE..
I live in hope cos I don't want today to end just yet :crest:


On the other hand, if its Blackpool, I can see them not selling out. So could be some floating around, or just time to join their membership scheme?

What to say that hasn't been said already?

Loved it when Taylor stood and give it large to the Cardiff fans after the corner for the first goal. They gave him a load of abuse as he came over to take it and when Nolan nodded it in, he gave it back in spades. Quality.

East Stand was bouncing throughout the game;

'Who's the ****er in the white?'

And that young lads' forehead.........wtf? :lol:

Anyone who isn't a WH member or season ticket holder i'd advise you to find out about becoming a Blackpool member. It'll be your best chance of getting a ticket to the final

all this about a cardiff penalty appeal i think we should've had one in the first half from a corner their defender had both arms around tomkins trying to rugby tackle him!

Was in the West Upper yesterday.
Usually it is quiet enough to hear the sound of your own heart beat, but there was a great atmosphere and plenty of noise.
Quality! :D

:lol:

Those inflatable sheep were selling for a fiver in The Central in the condom machines. That's a savvy landlord right there! Unless they are always on sale of course, who knows what the regulars are in to!

Had a fantastic night in The Vic afterwards. So glad I booked today off.

As someone said earlier we were packed in in the STBL, there must have been an extra half dozen in my row. Cracking atmosphere in the main, and some brilliant football on the pitch. What a day.

Bought mine online for just £3.49 and it was the one being knocked around in the Boleyn's beer chucking room pre-match.

What a team! What a day! :raver:

Was too shattered after the long drive home to switch on the laptop! what a day, I went into the game with some anxiety even two nil up but it was unfounded it is difficult to fault any member of the team and to think that we played attacking until the final whistle, now we need to re-group ready for Wembley, we will sell all our ticket allocation lets make it a second home! and back the team from the start to the end of the game and final whistle.

Hope the lads get a few days to rest and then start and do the right preparation for a Final we Can Win!

'Working from home' today and watching the rerun of yesterdays game on SS1.

Millers penalty claim early on was unjustified. He kicked the back of Winstons left leg, just as he steps over the ball.

Noble also blocks his view of it so he couldn't give a penalty on what he didn't see.

Looked like a penalty to me, Reid's initial challenge missed the ball and triped Miller. But Miller would not have got to that ball as Reid was going to get there.

If they had been less than a fiver I might have bought one for my gooner brother-in-law, hidden all of the others in their bog - giving him the choice of that or nothing. :lol:

Great game yesterday, completed dominated and played some nice stuff. The atmosphere was also good in the STBL, non stop singing in the first half. ONLY negative point was about 10-15 people starting EDL EDL chants at the back of the stand. Watched the re-run and you can hear it on TV as well (about 21 mins in) Ah well...BRING ON WEMBLEY :crest:

Never a penalty. It is a curse of the modern commentator that they seem to think just because there is contact then it is a penalty. "Well there was contact". Of course there was contact, football is a contact sport. Fact is the little bald sweaty tripped over Winston's legs after the Kiwi managed to get in front of him.

The best atmosphere i have encountered at any match in the BML yesterday.
Loads of old songs including,
She Wore...
KUMB
There were certainly more people than seats.
Did anyone else spot the geezer in the black taking photos of us from beside the Sky commentary box? Hopefully no worries, but who knows?

Oh, I forgot, Vaz Te Vaz Te give us a wave about 5 times until he finally did. :lol:
