[Albion] Anyone Else A Tad Emotional Today ?

In the field
I cried when the final whistle blew, as much for those friends and family no longer with us - especially my grandfather who died aged 100 in 2017. He was the person who introduced me to the Albion and he’d first been to watch the club in the 1920s. He lived long enough to see us promoted to the Premier League and his funeral was on the day of our 3-0 away with at the London Stadium in October 2017. He’d have LOVED today. We often travelled together in Europe and he’d often say, ‘imagine if we could come here for an Albion game, that would be quite something, wouldn’t I?’ - well, grandpa, we’re doing it and I’m bringing you with me, even if it is just in my heart.

Yes, just before final whistle and as the players did the lap with families. My lad, probably more into the Albion than me, said he wasn’t moved that way :lolol: . I’m a softie.

Not the first time, when we beat Leicester Sept 21, I cried. For some reason it seemed a landmark moment against a club that’d been annoyingly resilient against us over the PL, plus at that time they were big spenders compared to us.

Started supporting the Albion in Div 3. At the time, the Premier League was no where in my thoughts. Even after a couple of promotions, it still seemed a million miles away.

To now finish finish as the 6th best team in England and qualifying for Europe is unbelievable, when I think back to where I started.

I do seem to have similar emotions and reminders of memories to when we got promoted to the PL.

No, but just deliriously happy.

Amazing to celebrate it with friends that we’ve met since the Amex move…..

Can’t describe how I feel, just overjoyed
