A 2 goal lead really doesn't mean very much in the play offs does it 

This provoked me to  check you out

Doncaster were streets apart first leg and on a great run

How did they blow it

Must have been a hell of a performance from Crewe, they were miles off the pace in the first leg.

Hope they come up as we made a great day out of it last time. Although of course I hope we’re nowhere near the place next season.

Don’t mind Crewe untill they sing blue moon 

A quick google search reckons:

Crewe started to sing Blue Moon on 22 April 1988 away against Stockport. Crewe's fans were the first ever to sing the famous football song "Blue Moon" (with lyrics that do not quite match the Rodgers and Hart original). The song was sung to represent the gloomy days at Gresty Road during the mid-1900s and also reflects the colour of the Alex away strip which only the more steadfast and determined fans would travel to see. Since then Manchester City have copied the chant and it is often sung by their fans, whom often mistakingly claim that they were the first to use it.

I saw this live, mad how footballer mannerisms get into people's general behaviour. Probably crosses himself before he goes for a piss.

Nothing to do with mannerisms.  He's making masonic hand signs.

All footballers are freemasons.  NO exceptions.  So is this guy.

I worked in Crewe for a few years.

My employers were big sponsors at the time.

During their 'better than they used to be' years, but after their Gradi peak. My earlier memories of them were as perennial re-election fodder.

It was nice to see that a club could shake-off their limitations. Mind you, I used to think that about Tranmere, till Aldridge.

I was at university with a Crewe fan at the time this started. 

A really top fella, who made it clear that they started it.

So Crewe v Crawley at Wembley.

Is this first ever match (between teams not from the same city/town) in a Wembley final whose names begin with the same first two letters?

Think you're right.

West Brom played West Ham in an early league cup final, but it was a 2 legged job, not Wembley.
