Teams have good and bad spells throughout the season, the fact Bristol Rovers came good at the end of the season is pretty irrelevant, title winners Forrest Green probably arenít at this moment one of the top ten teams. I donít think weíve got anything to beat ourselves up about, with hindsight any team can look at aspects where they could have done better but league 2 teams by nature are inconsistent. The way things fell just left a perfect storm of factors where the only team that could catch us happened to face the worst team at home who decided to play their youth team, with no interest in integrity, it is what is, probably under any other circumstances we would have been up with our win.

Best laugh of the day to look back on, the Barrow "Ultras" before the game down in the town. The most laughable attempt at a football firm ever  Grin Loud bang followed by a group of kids, with some adults, all in black running into the street, then realising they need to do their jackets up and pull their hoods on  Grin Police arrive, take one young lad away who looks like he's going to burst into tears as  he's realising his mums going to find out what he's been up too.

Spot on Lee. In our 95 seasons in the FL, our 80 points total is our 9th highest and in all but one of the other 8 we have been promoted outright. Only in 1952/53 did we not get promoted despite finishing 3rd in Div 3 South (only one team went up I think). Also our 38 goals conceded is our second lowest (only the 37 in 2005/06 and 1997/98 were better). We were only 4 points from the champions. I think we have exceeded expectations. Sadly it wasn't enough due to an extraordinary twist of fate which Keith Hill played a big part in with that embarrassing and unsporting team selection.

A few years back whilst in the Thomas a Becket before a game, in walked the MK firm. They were all kids and some were wearing pale Burberry trousers. We all started laughing and sang the Rupert The Bear theme tune. They didnt stay long. I was still chuckling about an hour later.  Grin

It was the most surreal pre-match football experience I think I've ever had. It was like a low budget film was being recorded. It also beautifully summarised up the whole Barrow experience in 2 short minutes. Im gutted I didn't record it!!

God Im glad to be back in the Ceynty having spent 48 hours in that dump!

On my way back to the car, I walked through these being herded away from the away end by a line of police. I didn't feel particularly threatened by them.

Got into work this morning, first comment, here he is, must have been celebrating over the weekend. I said why? Reaching the playoffs she said. Mate, there was no celebrating this weekend, it felt like a death in the family. After a 5 minute rant she understood. Not a great start to the day!

That's people that have heard the phrase "bottled it" and really want to use it themselves without quite knowing just what it means
