    I only stayed about 20 minutes after final whistle last night as my boy hadn't eaten since early morning & needed food - being coeliac he couldn't get anything at the ground.We'd been at a family do the night before and only had a few hours kip all weekend; we left Devon at 0800, drove home to Eastbourne to drop wifey off and raced back to the Amex.
    Got home, ordered a take away curry and lobbed a couple of beers and a large brandy down to celebrate. Fell asleep in the chair just after 9.

      I stayed for about an hour afterwards but had to head back up to london eventually. Really wanted to stay until the end of the Hudds game but couldn't make it work. Seeing all of the videos of the late night shenannigans is making me very jealous.

      Funny how people were saying that the pitch would be cleared in 10 minutes , what time did the last person leave the pitch do we think?

      Not sure what would be a good estimate of the number left in the ground for the celebrations from 7.00pm onwards...? Perhaps around 3K...?

      Hung around for a fair bit but, annoyingly, left just before Derby equalised. Can safely say I didn't think I'd be celebrating the moment we mathematically clinched it on a train carriage as it pulled back into Brighton.

      Stayed in WSU for about 5 or 10 minutes at the end, then wandered round to the East. Went into the stand to watch a few players prove they can't sing then went back to my local for the 2nd half of Derby Huddersfield. Very odd day for me celebrating promotion stone cold sober as I'm on antibiotics right now so couldn't drink

      I had to get home for the kids as their Mum was working, I was back home by 6:30pm and managed to catch the last 30 seconds of the Huddersfield game before leaping around the front room with my 6 and 5 year olds.

      Think we eventually sloped off the pitch about 7.30 after TB did his final speech (or it might have been CH - can't even remember which way round they were !)

      The girlfriend told me that her sister would find my attendance at the Amex yesterday to be unforgivably sinful. The girlfriend fainted in the cinema a couple of days prior and is more than halfway through the full production of a first Meade Jr. Girlfriend Meade, though, understood entirely that I could nowhere else but at our hallowed home, so there I went, a hobble to the pitch to cheer and shake to follow, a quick pint on the jubilant concourse, and home to her to find her conscious. All in all, it went well. Although I would love to have been able to see the night through singing through the streets, and probably yacking on someone's porch.
