Welcome to the final update of the 04/05 season. If you’ve been following us on twitter, you’ll know this is going to be quite Darlington-centric. It’s been a fantastic end to the season and I’m looking forward to telling you about it. So, without further ado…
As ever we start the finale with the pointless cup.

A great win over Everton and that sees us into the FA Cup final. To see the live text of the final, click here. Otherwise, the result is below…
The semi finals saw us go up against Parma – unbelievable scenes when this happened in the second leg
Milan in the final then. Again, we covered this in depth in a live text here – otherwise it’s below
Manchester United were left flying the flag for England in Europe’s elite competition
As we’re in the form of our lives, we have an outside chance of getting into the 2nd Champions League spot. Going into the last game of the season, Man Utd have sewn up the title but 2nd is still up for grabs.
Phew. Here’s how it all looked in the end
It’s a very bad year for Yorkshire, with Barnsley, Hull and Huddersfield taking the drop. Le Tissier guided Arsenal to the Division one title, whilst Portsmouth won the playoffs. Beaten League Cup finalists Bristol City complete the promoted trio.
Time for some managerial changes
I actually forgot I even had this guy
Anyway, there are no further noteworthy retirements and that brings the curtain down on the 04/05 season. The 05/06 season will culminate with the World Cup in England – will Feethams host a game? Probably not, but still, we’ll see you there!
