Cardiff City 1
Man City 0
It's really a little sad when you look back on your life and find yourself placing a football match in your Top Ten experiences, but this match (and the subsequent celebrations) may well have earned such a place in my heart.
Somehow Cardiff had progressed to the fourth round in the FA Cup, and Premier League Manchester City were drawn against us at Ninian Park.
A 20,000 strong crowd packed into the ground to watch Cardiff turn in an incredible performance which, according to a report in The Independent, "would have troubled Manchester's other team".
City's dominance came to fruition when Nathan Blake arced in a beautiful 63rd minute goal in the top right hand corner of the net setting Ninian Park alight.
I'd already announced before the game that on the unlikely prospect of Cardiff winning, I would take an acid tab at full time, resulting in my journey back to London taking on something of a surreal air.
The celebrations continued in Brixon, where I vaguely recall spending the night in a squat techno rave, dancing deliriously to an 'Eddie, Eddie May' repetitive beat.
