    Agree with the sentiments expressed in the article by Dan Williams regarding our 7-1 rout of the
    Terriers. Barney' s goal was Excocet like and will stay in the mind forever.
    One of the funniest things I ever heard involved the same opponents. We had lost the first leg of the play
    off semi to Town 0-1 and travelled to the Galpharm with our confidence at a pretty low ebb. Town we're confident of going to Cardiff to contest the final to the point there was an advert for a local taxi firm on a billboard. It read " Can't get to Cardiff then phone" and it gave the firms number shown on the back of
    Huddersfield Town shirts hung on pegs in the dressing room. On the way out of the ground having won 3-2 on aggregate, a wag from Barnsley phoned the taxi firm and recorded the call. One of my mates at work played it back to me the next day. It went some thing like " Can I order a taxi to Cardiff love" Reply " we don't go to Cardiff." Barnsley fan " You don't go to Cardiff?" Cue for a chorus from a coach load of ecstatic Reds fans on the bus " We're all going to Cardiff, we're all going to Cardiff la la la la etc". Love to hear that recording again.
    Absolute quality.

    Thanks for that Indie. Brilliant to hear it again. Can still picture Peter Jacksons face on the
    touchline when Nards smashed the ball in their net. Like a bulldog chewing a wasp.
    The abuse our fans got as our coaches snaked onto Leeds Road was a bit scary, but the fun
    me and my fellow Reds had had work winding up the " Townies" the next day was brilliant.
    When one of us passed their offices, we were singing " we're all going to Cardiff, we're all going to
    Cardiff la la la la." Absolute quality.
