An incredible day and in fact so surreal and unique that I actually stopped boozing before kick off to take in the day and remember it forever.
Walking up Wembley way before kick off I ran into two very old pals from my distant childhood and we were then actually snagged by BBC World service and asked our opinions for the waiting world.
It doesn’t get any more surreal than that and proof how far Latics had progressed and how big the FA cup final is despite the crap spouted by the corporate football fraternity.
I said very calmly that we would win the game and I felt elation at the end but always felt we would win the cup.
It all felt so right and especially so sharing it with my son who I had taken to games since he was four at Springfield park in the very bleak days of the early 90s.
Never to be forgotten
