So, January 26th we took a break from PL football, and turned our attention back to OUR trophy, with the 2nd leg of our League/Milk/Worthingtons’/Carling/Asda/Tesco/Cadburys’/Capital One Cup.

We were 1-0 up from the 1st leg, at the Britannia Stadium, thanks to a 37th minute Jordan Ibe goal, and hopes were high, for us completing the job, and booking a February trip to Wembley (and a potential all-Merseyside final, what with the Bluenoses leading Man Sh*tty in their semi). But, as we all know too well, we don’t like things the easy way, do we?

Anyhoo, here are the pix!!

As we all know, due to travel restraints, I'm never able to stay for all of extra-time (or penalties!!), so this is were this tour comes to an end, for me.

One last parting shot, as I head for my train.

But, anyway, it was pretty much all over, by the time I got back to Lime St. I boarded the train just in time to hear the last penalties (thanks to a few supporters, in the same boat as me).

Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be an all- Merseyside final, as the Toffees fluffed their lines, and ended up losing out to New Money Sh*tty.

Ah well. At least we were going (and so was I!!!).

Anyhoo, until I post the next tour (PL v Sunderland), YNWA. Always. J4T96-GBNF.x
