Gerrin' There!

Phew, what a cup final that was! It's left me with my finger-nails ripped to tatters, a fine old hangover thudding away in my bonce and has probably taken a couple of years off my life.

BBC highlights here...

West Ham 2-0 up at half time, Liverpool get back to 2-2. Then WHU score a freak goal which looks as if it's going to win it for them but with a minute left Gerrard fires a screamer into the bottom left corner of the net. The players drag themselves through half an hour of extra time and it goes to nerve-wracking penalties...and Pepé Reina the young Spanish goalkeeper who made a couple of very untypical botches in the game saves three penalties and wins us the cup!

I need a HypoHoliday after that!

Congrats on the Pool winning. My brother is a West Ham fan and was gutted. By all accounts it was a cracker of a game! :)

Thanks a lot! It was an incredibly nerve-wracking game...would have been unbearable if not for copious amounts of bevy!

My commiserations to your brother... ;-)
