Unless, of course, you are talking about me and my father. We've done father and son things over the years, including playing cricket together for a few, cherished seasons. But, before last Saturday's FA Cup tie with Southend Manor, the entirety of our shared footballing experiences was the 1979 Trophy final! I am certain I have written of this before on this blog, but cannot for the life of me remember when. And as I'm in no particular mood to wade through the near 500 posts which make up this blog, I'll quickly run through the particulars of this solitary, less-than-cherished father and son footballing memory.

I think he enjoyed the experience, albeit probably more the pre and post match bits. Doubtful whether he enjoyed it enough to attend another game in the next 32 years, but you never know!
