I’ll throw the 2002 FA Cup in there though. We probably should have beaten Arsenal at home before they tanked us in the replay. It would have been Boro in the Semi then Chelsea who we’d finished higher than in the table in the Final.

Yeah I think about that one.

Also went into the two FA Cup finals thinking we didn't have much chance - then again, it was just one game away.

For me the Chelsea semi final's the closest. A game we were right in, and win that and we're favourites for the final.

The 97 runner up place wasn't so far off either, though it felt a lot different to 96. But that's just a few stupid draws/defeats off.

I get so frustrated thinking about how none of the times we got to finals or semi finals were at our best (either KK or Bobby best).

Chelsea semi was so frustrating, felt we were the better team.

28 years ago today...note the ‘Ha’way’ on the hat.

When did people start getting precious about who could use Ho’way and who can use Ha’way then?

His brother is still Jack Wilshere too.

A joyful read, from a time where things had gone to s*** but not to eternal hell:
