"Maybe not going up is for the best."
Less than 24 hours after losing 3-1 at Wembley, the revisionism has kicked in with my little brother leading the charge.
Instead of welcoming fallen giants Leeds United and Nottingham Forest to the new stadium next year, we'll get a trip to the Lancashire seaside to see newcomers Morecambe. But we do have derby games against Wrexham and Hereford which will ensure all 10,000 shiny new seats are sold. And there's an expectation of more than another scrap against relegation.
[And, for the first time ever, Shrewsbury Town led at Wembley. It didn't last long...]
[And, they now hold the record for the quickest goal to be scored at the new Wembley.]
[And, they had the first player sent off in a compettitive fixture at the new Wembley!]
As a final irony for the weekend, Dave's kickabout on Gay Meadow scheduled for this afternoon was cancelled because of a waterlogged pitch. I laughed.
