Luckily I witnessed proceedings from INSIDE the ground.
What a night!

The crowd was packed cheek to jowl and I am led to believe that some supporters in dire need of emptying their bladders had to urinate on to the terraces as they could not make it to the toilets due to the packed crowd.
Some celebrations at the final whistle!

I was there as a nine year old with my Grandad, who was a steward.

An amazing experience that I still have impressions of today.

I am not sure that night will ever be beaten, unless we win a cup. IMO still just ahead of celebrations in Croydon after Villa Park.... just

Funny you mention about Croydon, never really gave it a thought. I was lucky enough to get a ticket for the semi v l'pool & as i lived in Northampton, it was easy to get to & i had no need to go down to Croydon. Would love to know/see what went on that day/night.

I got there early so was able to pick my spot on the Holmesdale. It was a very warm pleasant Spring evening.

Although we dominated the game it was very tense until Walsh headed home. Had Burnley nicked a winner we would have remained in the 2nd Division.

I had a quick pint in a pub in Croydon after the game with a mate and then had to get the train back to Brighton.
