No "Just back" report from me, was concentrating on supporting.

Same as our outstanding away support, I've nothing but pure admiration for everyone supporting last night.
Especially those stood at the back and singing their hearts out to the left in the Pontoon.

If fans ever think the football "isn't entertaining enough", perhaps they should consider moving to the Ponny (if they've never been in there before) and try to learn a thing or 2 from those pro-active and determined to try to find or make it for themselves ?
Personally I've no quarrel about latching onto the back of those over half my age.
If only because if everyone did, we'd all be singing together in total unison anyway.

And they know how to party !  
2nd time in the Ponny for me and on both occasions, I've felt an urge to almost want to shake everyone's hand in appreciation.
But the truth is (whether old or knee high to a grasshopper), I'm in complete awe of all of them.

And what a lovely touch for Mr Fenty and the servicemen to walk around and be deservedly clapped and honoured.
Just personally for me, it set the tone perfectly for a wonderful night all round.  
Unfortunately had to stay in B&B to attend last night (shame the money couldn't go to the club)
But for me, was still worth every single penny AND some.

Last night made me realize one very important thing.
Whatever fond memories and feelings of nostalgia and love for BP will naturally follow if/when we move to a new ground...
It will never change the fans or the people who make up the club and the community - I only wish I was one of you !  
That's what "football club" NOW means to me...

Though I've always wanted Town to do the best they can (obviously !), for many many years part of my motivation used to be about formations, 4-4-2, "watching the game" wondering if it was all worth it as a "paying customer".
Not any more !

Best people
Best fans
BEST FOOTBALL CLUB IN THE WORLD ('and that's the way we like it' !  )

Well done everyone.

Lol ermm... I appreciate it.
I guess many of my points are lost.
While some are more complex, I do try to be as brief and simple as I can.
Blimey, just imagine how bad it would be if I wasn't !

Was gonna comment on the "just back" thread, but this thread seems more apt.

I just loved everything about last night.

The Remembrance tribute was both excellent before the game and at half time.

We were superb, everybody played well, we had loads of chances and took one of them.

Halifax are a good side and for us to limit them to no shots on target was again superb.

The crowd was good, the atmosphere was good and the result was even better.

It was without a doubt my most enjoyable night this season, even though my nerves in the last ten minutes took a battering.

This is it, this is our season.

Your best yet 80s. Although you may want to rephrase this bit

Someone might be latching onto the back of ME.  
We can but hope...

"to go more defensive" !!!...
