Ian RoyalScutterbucketz I'm in two minds. Out of the 3 playoff finals we've been involved in, this seems the one we have the best shout in. And the fact that it's 22 years to the day since the Bolton game is making it a touch more important in my own head. 14 year old me, who was gutted for months after that final, wants this win more than anything.
So, I don't think I've allowed myself to think of a loss. That's nothing to do with the quality of our opponents, but more because we have to fukking win a Playoff final one day.
Who has the worst play off record, in terms of overall and finals? Is it us already?
I think Preston have lost three out of four finals, so unless anyone has bettered that, we're currently joint worst in the final? With 5 failures overall.
Sheffield United - 3 semi final defeats, 4 final defeats.
Along with us, the only club to have lost a final at the Old Wembley, Millenium Stadium and New Wembley.
