Never in doubt... ish..

You know, people have text me since the game with all sorts of remarks and messages of congratulations etc, but a few people have said "why did they leave it so long before scoring?"..

For those that don't know, Gillingham won the play off final 1-0 with a goal in the 90th minute to gain promotion to League One, just a season after being relegated.
On refelction of these comments, is there actually any better time to score? True, they could have scored in the first minute and made our lives a whole lot easier for the 90 minutes that followed, but i wouldn't have changed it for the world.

When we arrived home we downloaded all our photo's from the day. The shot above has to be the favourite despite the fact that i've now thoroughly abused the panoramic image maker feature in windows live gallery...

It was a great way to win and having been to 3 Gills play off finals now, i'm beginning to think, it's the only way to win. 3 finals, 3 last minute goals. League One here we come!

  1. Well done to you. It is a great feeling winning a play-off final. We did it (Birmingham City) in 2002 in a penalty shoot-out. Fantastic feeling after 16 years out of the top flight. Two automatic promotions since then and it doesn't feel anything like it.

    One way or another you could be playing Newcastle so you can visit there then.
