The Grand Final was in progress.

The SFS was tense, 1-0 down to the Victory from a 1st half Berisha goal.

The faithful stood, sang and waited in anticipation.

The Rhyan Grant equaliser probably saw the loudest every roar the SFS had ever seen.

The rest is history.

Penalty kicks in full, from where I was sitting.

What a night, will live long in all the fans’ memories.

On a clear night you can sometimes see the ball Valeri kicked into the bar, in orbit around the moon

Jubal’s Forza Sydney FC video is probably my most watched YouTube video ever.

Honestly I don’t think I genuinely enjoyed a moment of that day (mostly anxiety, dead and then relief) until Bar Cleveland post-game, which is a memory I’ll treasure forever.

Looking back it really couldn’t have been more perfect.

Just to play devil’s advocate… as fun as it was to again do them in the harshest way possible, I’d have preferred a proper victory where we score more real goals.

But I digress.

Nah, I like that they had a sniff - in the game and the shootout - and fell short.

In the words of the man who slotted the winning penalty, “Unbelievable”.
