I was at that one too, was a glorious day. ;-) If I remember rightly, Mansfield had a reasonable season that year too and were in or around the play offs at the time so the score line was pretty bonkers.The last time Cambridge scored 7 (seven) in the FL was against us in their promotion season of 1999. 7-2 it managed to finish in a relatively even game where everything the likes of Taylor, Benjamin, Butler etc hit went in.
Significantly remembered for both: away fans scrapping amongst themselves in argument about the butcher of Calver (Keith Haslam) and being the sorry day that I met my ex-wife.
We left at 5-2; heard the crowd cheer at 6-2; got back to the car to hear that it finished 7-2 - at which point the whole car said in harmonical bitter unison "f*ckin seven!"
Thanks to Great Northern rail's ineptitude, yet again, I ended up missing the entirety of this game, to say I'm not happy is an understatement...
I missed it too. Did ligaments in my foot playing football on Monday. Agony yesterday and standing in the Habbin (or even making it to the ground) was not going to happen.
I've missed 4 home games this season now and we've won them all, last night being the pick. Maybe that's the secret - I need to buy a ticket and not go. We'd be promoted by March.
