Dont remember that?

maybe im getting mixed up , but i think fulham played liverpool (at craven cottage, i think ) earlier in the day and won. 

something like that, because we didnt kick off at the exact same time i remember allardyce moaning saying the pressure was mental in an interview years later. 

if i'm getting stuff mixed up . ill have to root around the internet to find out. think it was one of them "we were playing at an odd time, but not on telly" games that was kinda odd . wasnt the end of the season maybe 3 or 4 week before the end. 

ill look later.

We should of wrapped that up.

Having said that we weren't under pressure second half barring the odd chance. 

Bar one or two games that pretty much sums up our run since Jan for me 

As opposed to pre Jan when we couldn't defend but could score and do comebacks 

I'm sure it can be a case of one or the other in, so get promoted, improve up top, and be reet

I think you’re correct E2e4 I remember that game and the significant result as contributor to is staying up. 

i just remember it not being good on the nerves. 

being relieved as anything once it finished. 

if i could find allardyces interview about it , id post it up. 

was years later , iirc, mightve been in 442 magazine or some newspaper (he was in with 'the sun' at the time, but it mustve been the independent or telegraph or that type)

probably before he got the england job , but was out of work. 

probably in a magazine. but i read it on the internet. 

thatll do my head in now, but remember laughing that he hated it too.

We never play well against 10 men, ever.

excluding when fernando hierro is playing centre mid.

other than that, it’s a disaster.

 

great result considering they got a player sent off

It was a Saturday teatime game for the telly. Against the odds, WHU had seen off Chelsea in the afternoon  and

the southern press were well pleased that their world cup winning darlings were staying up. Before our game

Sky showed a pub full of lubricated Superwhites giving it all. The reporter pointed out that Bolton were

still in defiant mood. We spent 90 mins plus biting our nails but the draw tipped the balance. End of highlighs on

MOTD showed Bolton fans still in good voice and cameras homing in on two young lads from Farnworth/ 

Kearsley folk holding up BWFC flag.

We played at Southampton late kick off the year we stayed up ahead of West Ham, they played early and beat a good team Chelsea ? Maybe ?

We did well against 10 men earlier in the season too. Can't remember who against, but we won.

aye thats probably it  .

the tottenham at home okocha penalty 1-0 were also similar to today, nervous as owt. (that was also about 4 weeks before the end of the season). 

That one was on telly (on sky, not premplus PPV or whatever the southampton game wouldve been on) . 

i remember the showing of the penalty from the opposite goal in the morning (on the replay)  , and going "woah!" at how he struck it, either coz it nearly got saved , or he turned his foot and hit it with the side or cuboid or summat daft. 

"thank god that went in" , even though i saw it happen the day before.

It was the week before Boro at home iirc... Getting a, point kept our fate in our own hands, luckily Southampton had one eye on the FA Cup final.
