We’d been on an amazing run, wed won like 6 games (all by one goal) on the run, and we got picked for PremPlus (remember that? ) and Yobo who’d been our rock got sent off when we were 1-0 up after like 10 mins then they scored twice right st the end. Heartbreaking.
The wheels kind of fell off after that and we never really recovered.
I still look back at that table with disappointment. Southampton got to the cup final and finished 8th and City got on vis Fair Play, so we ended up being the only team in the top 9 to not get into Europe.
