I remember that Leeds match like it was yesterday. I was in Portmeirion with the family, and all day I was preoccupied with the result because, if Leeds won, we were right back in it.

Listening to the updates in the car on the way back was nerve wracking and I shudder to think what would have happened if Leeds had actually won, as we only took one point from the next 15 available if I remember rightly – with a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge.

God, what an awful season that was!

What did you make of Portmeirion Tamhas? It's about £15 per person just to get in there these days. I spent 20 minutes in there and decided I'd seen enough. Quaint though.

Review: 'Good day out for the elderly'

I remember that Leeds match too. We were battered from about 25 minutes until 90 and somehow hung on for a draw. Rooney's last goal in an Everton shirt too.

You're right about it being more for an elderly crowd. As a 15 year old I must admit I found it rather boring.

I was not a "white cider" teenager by any stretch, but I'd much rather have been shooting zombies at the arcade or playing five a side than walking round a mock Italian village, but I'm sure I'd have enjoyed it a damn sight more without the spectre of relegation at the forefront of my mind.

Haven't been since so I hope they've made it a tad more interesting over the past 10 years, maybe some impromtu duelling between Tybalt and Romeo in the gift shop every half hour? That would be a start.
