For those who fancy watching Peter Enckelman's second worst career moment, feel free to watch this round up for 10 years of Wemberley finals by the BBC:

Not sure how everyone felt on the day but main emotion was frustration. Really felt that the game was there for the taking but Dave Jones didn't really commit the team to it. Pompey were poor and we just didn't exert any pressure on them and if we had, we could so easily have snatched it. Even in those days most knew that Ramsey was some talent and yet Jonesy left him on the bench and then he barely got any service when he did make it on. It just felt like a half-hearted effort.

Unlike after the Carling Cup Final where I did think City gave everything and a really good account of themselves (and even led on penalties), I was just left thinking of what could have and should have been.

Much like Slade and many, many other managers, Jones never liked young players. Ramsey on the bench was criminal
