First on the coach for a sunny start to the journey.
In-coach breakfast. Haven’t had steak pie in ages. And don’t worry, I cleaned up the mess afterwards.
On the road to Wembley. Note how, the closer we got to the capital, the wetter it became. Strange, it’s normally the other way around.
3.30pm – 105 minutes to kickoff
Finally there! Shield your eyes from the Wigan-esque drizzle and take in the sights.
A sea of Wigan coaches. That’s only a third of the car park.
So this is what it looks like on the inside. Unnervingly red, but impressive nonetheless. Over an hour to kickoff yet…
Fenners off Soccer AM announces the lineups. Al Habsi back in the team!
Great, the Latics lads made it down in one piece. Well, most of them anyway.
Wigan’s Wembley warmup.
Almost kick-off time. I know because there are comically large flags where the players ought to be.
Ready to kick off now. Let’s get it on!
Courtesy the FA. My cinematography isn’t that good.
Millwall 0-2 Wigan.
Victorious, Roberto thanks his adoring supporters.
When do we get to do it all again? Oh, that’s right, in just under a month’s time. Woohoo!
