Well, I must say, as interviews go, I like this one very much.
Obviously I was, like most of you I am sure, not thinking about having a drink on Saturday (I sometimes fib a little). But, hold your horses, the gaffer has now given us clear instructions to have a few pints – so a few pints we must have!
As you can hear, Steve talks of what a great occassion the play-off final is. I’m sure he’s had great days with Birmingham City and Hull City and enjoyed the atmopshere their fans generated. Saturday though, he’ll hear something completely different. The wall-to-wall noise us lot make is beyond comparison. I remember my old man saying, whilst watching us all at Wembley v Arsenal, that the commentators said they couldn’t hear themselves think for the noise us Villans were generating.
Bruce says it is a fantastic sporting occassion, hoping it will be our day and then to our instructions.
*Drink a few beers.
*Shout loud, until you can’t speak anymore.
*See if you can get us over the line.
I think I can remember that. Just need to check with the Fulham fans for advice on the weather now and I am sure we’ll all be sorted.
It’s going to be epic.
