Cardiff City beat Leicester - we're in the Championship play-off final!

Man, this was an incredible game.

I watched in the Brixton Hootenanny and it was a mighty strange place to watch such a vital match.

The Fulham game was on the other screen right next to us (with, I’ll have to admit, a rather larger crowd), and there were people playing pool in front of the screen showing the Cardiff game.

Providing the musical accompaniment -at some considerable volume – was about 15 African drummers on the stage behind us, while I find myself in amongst a small nest of Leicester fans. Well, only one true Leicester fan and he was a lovely bloke.

The game was hideously, horribly, painfully close but Cardiff triumphed and I got very drunk. Mark Kennedy was an absolute gent.

And the drums kept on playing.

  1. Iechyd da Mike. Rich of singular Leicester fan in the pub fame here. Whas a joy to meet you too captain, if not a little ruined in the end by your unapologetic celebrations. Even tho Chopra was talking sense when he questioned what the hell Kormorgant was playing at, adding that he had no sympathy for the fans is a tad rich for my palate. He’ll never walk the streets of Leicester alone. Admittedly, few do after dark. Staying with the Kermorgant debacle, this pretty much puts the icing on things http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iad3gV-9C1U

    Pfft.
