How did you fail to mention the banner that made the whole thing inevitable?We've had some bad gubbings over the years but my 'worst performance' would have to be the play off final in Cardiff against Brighton a good few years ago. We had beaten them with ease home and away in the league programme and outnumbered their support 2 to 1 at least ( Cardiff is just up the road in all fairness) yet we just didn't turn up at all. Danny bloody Wilson left a very young but lethal (ie when he was good) Leroy Lita out of the squad and Brighton won 1-0 with a Leon Knight penalty. We were truly shite that day, really, really bad.
It's the closest I have ever been to walking away from football as it took most of the summer to recover from that abject performance. I shudder even remembering that day!
(PS. outnumbering 2 to 1 is exaggerating things a tad, but I'm sure we've had this conversation before, possibly on a different forum..)
