I know, but as memorable as they were, couldn't really call a draw and a home win against a team third from bottom in Div 2 headline grabbers. That West Ham game was gutting wasn't it? Swindlehurst - of all people - equalising at the death after a pinball style action in front of our goal.

Re. Burnley: great night, but still amazes me how we've avoided relegation to the 3rd tier considering all the times we've flirted with it. A lot of bigger clubs than us have been unable to prevent that drop in recent years. We've now plyed our trade for 40 consecutive years in the top 2 tiers. Think I'm right in saying only 10 other clubs can boast that since 1977.

Man U, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, West Ham, Everton, Ipswich, Villa and Newcastle.

However, we're the only club out of that list without a major honour to our name
