Lots of Blues fans have been looking back fondly to one of the more happy days in the club’s recent memory.

Remember these days? When we were near the top of the table rather than having to languish near the bottom?

Well for those of you who might be too young to remember, there was a time when the Blues were actually a pretty decent team, both in this division and with the occasional stint in the Premier League, and there is arguably no better way to reach it, and also no worse way to not reach it, than to go through the playoffs. It’s why people love to define it as ‘the agony and the ecstasy’.

And there was no greater ecstasy for Blues fans than the day we sealed promotion to the Premier League back in 2002 in that penalty shootout against Norwich City, with Darren Carter getting scoring the winning goal.

How many penalties did Lee Camp save in the league this past season?

And with no football on for the time being, the club decided to post a flashback to that memorable day in Cardiff, and it gave fans plenty to talk about.

Lord what I’d give to have those days back again.
