If anyone on here watched that in the Coat & Badge in Putney, I was the other Villa fan in the pub that you hugged at the end.

Southampton away in 2005 was good, we won 3-2 after being two down.

I was at that game, David O'Leary was the manager back then, I remember that Can't Control started the comeback. As much as I enjoyed the game, it effectively relegated Saints so it was rather bittersweet for me as I was meeting some Saints-supporting good friends after the game.

Loved that game particularly for the game before when we were 2-0 up and drew 2-2. Their fans were signing '2-0' and you f*cked it up'. I lost my voice signing it back to them.

Southampton fans were lovely that day... racist chants before the match "Youre just a town full of P***s", constant pisstaking about the closure of the Rover factory during the game.

From 2-0 down to 3-2 was great fun.

The day was topped off by meeting Peter McParland after the game, he is my mums all time favourite player and he agreed to speak to her on the phone (i may have had a few beers and handed him the phone asking him to say hello to my mum) .. to this day she still thinks we were winding her up.

It may have been, or not been, the last away game of the season where it kicked off at Yates' with Villa in fancy dress. Could be wrong though.

Beating Southampton 3 2 when Delph scored the beauty was a great night out.
4 3 against the Stripeys
3 2 win Everton away
4 2 win over spurs
Any win against the shite

I think the game you're on about was the season before. Drew 1-1 and we were still going for a European place. The 3-2 was the next season.

I could look it up but it's more fun to speculate, but my memory is that it went 1-1, 2-2 then 2-3. I was at the 1-1 with my ex girlfriend. Hendrie scored I believe.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/eng_prem/4427547.stm  We were two nil down and went on to win 3-2.

The 1-1 the season before - our goal was an Angel penalty.
