Brilliant! I didn't dare look at the score until 5pm due to the nerves. But, the beer is flowing in SE London. Have a fantastic evening everyone. Looking forward to next season!!

Sonic's kettle. Went missing occasionally, but there when it was needed.

I think he posted before kick-off that he'd brewed up twice. We were two nil up after half an hour.

Say no more.

Thomason was magnificent
Absolutely. There was this one play, possibly the sequence of the day for me, about 75 minutes or so in which saw us stroke it about to each other absolutely gloriously. Sadly it culminated in a powder puff 'shot' by Dapo into their keeper's arms from the edge of the box. Anyway, the point I'm making is that this entire move was started by an utterly incredible tackle by Thomason just in front of left back. I'm not sure anyone picked up on it, but it truly was a moment of absolute perfection.
Who played the diagonal ball to Dapo for the third? Thomason or MJ? It was absolutely superb whoever it were.
For the third? Have you been drinking? :-)
Yes. But third goal someone played a long ball to Dapo before he picked Sarce out in the box...

Sky highlights doesn't quite catch it. We tried a few Hollywood's today. Santos played a few, William's was at it. Thomason too. Radar sometimes off for all of them but quite a few landed spot on.

I think the ball for the third was MJ...but ima few in now.
Just got lost in Twitter vids, obviously there were fans there. The players come out to celebrate with them, and Sharon (what a wonderful woman) hugging, kissing...Baps even shares his pizza with the fans!

feck me we’ve had some shit in the 10’s but this is the decade lads, the new 90’s. We’re Bolton Wanderers we are on our way back.

Don't know about a cat but the dog is doing the hokey cokey at the back door! If it sh*ts in the house tonight because of that cheese filling then I'm toast with Mrs Sonic! :shock:

It was definitely MJ, remember thinking at the time that it was a perfect pass. What a signing hes been that lad. Unsung hero. Or at least undersung.

Aye, I've just re-watched it and it's Williams who plays the long ball to Dapo.

Love it. Crazy, wonderful celebrations by the lads. A 4-1 win that could have been even more, but we got the performance we wanted and they did the job in style. Supporting the Whites has a had a few downers, but this season has been a revelation in fighting back when the chips were really down from the board to the ball boys... So proud to be a White... :pray: .

Aye. Probably for me Gilks, Santos, Baptiste and MJ are our best players this season. Obviously Doyle for goals and running. But the 4 mentioned have been so consistent during the run and the platform on which it’s all built. Our front 4 hasn’t always fired really but did today. But we had a base from January that basically turned our fortunes round.

I think his signing in Jan is one of the biggest turning points. The guys a fuxking magnet, ball just finds it’s way to him when we are defending. Plus he’s a hard man as well I think. Quiet unassuming hard man a bit like Chrissy Fairclough. From his first or second game he’s made that defensive mid role his and he never stops running as well.

Forgot I posted this last week during the doom and gloom;
Lost my connection then came back to this :cry: Ah well, we just need the 3 pts at Crawley next week then.
Knew I should have had a bet :wink:
