The best game I ever saw

The best football match I ever went to was over twenty years ago.

It was Norwich away.

Norwich is a long way.

There were about 2000 of us, maybe 20000 of them.

I don’t remember much about the game, apart from the Forest fans chanted the same chant, repeatedly, for the entirety of the second half. Then, at around 85 minutes, Steve Stone bundles the ball into the back of the net.

We did the long drive back home, stopping only for a McDonalds.

But what made it great was Stoney was interviewed on the radio the next day. And he said, and I’ll never forget it, “we were starting to lose faith but the fans kept singing so that kept us going”.

Take action: What do you do to take control of situations that are out of your control?
