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.
