I think I'm going soft as I ended up feeling sorry for them this time. From experience, finally getting relegated when you've known you're going down virtually all season is easy to deal with. Losing a playoff final is a kick in the bollocks. I only watched the first episode and the last two, though.

I really felt for them at the end and you could see how devastated their fans were.

Losing at Wembley is cruel, but losing there twice in a season is gut wrenching.

I enjoyed the programme and I felt sorry for them too. Apparently they’ve lost all of their last 7 games at Wembley.

It reminded me of last May before our final as our train pulled in at Wembley Stadium station en route to Marylebone. Hundreds of excited Villa fans were disembarking whilst a couple of Sunderland fans were boarding the train. They looked absolutely broken and I felt sorry for them then too.

Strange, that.

We were staying in Watford the night before the play-off final. In came a couple of Mackems -and we couldn't tell from their demeanour/body language whether they'd won or lost.
