February 24th 2007 – Fulham away
Despite leading the table throughout the 2006-2007 season, I still couldn’t quite believe we were going to win the league. The cockiness I’d become accustomed to because of the 90’s was long gone and I was just waiting for us to screw up.
When we travelled to Craven Cottage a week after being forced to an FA Cup replay against Reading, thanks to a 1-1 draw at home, it looked as though this might be the moment it all started to unravel.
Fulham took an early lead before Ryan Giggs equalised in the first half. Time was running out, we were in desperate need of a goal, but it was hard to see where it was going to come from. A win here put us nine points clear at the top and with just a few months remaining, it would put us in a great position.
Two minutes left to go and Ronaldo picked up the ball.
