I remember catching the eye of the guy beside me who had his little girl with him, about 2 minutes from the end of normal time. He saw me looking at my young fella and the two of us just knew what each other was thinking. It was what am I going to tell this young lad to console him after the excitement of coming to what he thought was going to be the best day of his life. He was thinking the same with his young girl.
He just said to me 'It's too late now'.
I just agreed 'Even if they get one now, they're out of time.'
The two of us were resigned to this, but when Dzeko pulled one back we both said 'there's still time, one more attack'. The buzz was there in the crowd again.
I was on the first row of the Family stand just to the left of the goal looking out. It's the worst view of any match I've been at, but when I saw Aguero come through that crowd of players, it's like everything went into slow motion. We were all up on our feet willing him to shoot, he took one touch past the defender and bang.
Kids were being thrown in the air, Everybody hugging complete strangers and Sergio wheeled around past our seat taking his shirt off along the way before being drowned in his fellow team mates on the side line.......absolute magic......I'll never experience anything like it again and neither will my boy, unless......we get a ticket for a Champs League Final where we do the same again.(Don't know of my heart would take it.)
