For a club like ours, there’s always going to be momentous points in history but whilst some are good, others are not as sweet.
Today, then, marks the anniversary of a moment that falls into the latter bracket with it being 15 years today when we reached the UEFA Cup final.
Obviously, there have been better moments in our history where we have been victorious but, equally, this is still a day that clearly holds some good memories associated with it.
Let’s take a look at what some of our fans have been saying, then, as they reflect on that day back in 2003:

Worst day of my life. Still can’t bring myself to watch the whole game. Hate Porto hate that ref. Ball was going out for a goal kick rab, why didn’t you just leave it. And maloney, why didnt you let Larsson take that free kick. Arrgh. Only 1 team winning until bobo got sent off

This was the first glimpse of the mourinio way to win some of the faking & diving was embarrassing.

A day I’ll never forget & a match we should have won! Still an amazing sight being in Seville!

Of course, it was a negative day in the end but there’s still plenty to be happy about and reflect on in a positive way.
It was certainly a tough time as a match for us but also a period of great football and away days and so we can still look back on it all fondly I feel.
