Just how close to full time did Hopkin score his winner?? Sheffield must
have been DEVASTATED!

Clearly you have never been to Sheffield, large parts of it look pretty
devastated already :-)

Palace fans will sympathise with Sheffield United supporters. Last
year we reached the Final, after finishing third in Division One, and
we were beaten by a fluke mis-hit in injury time at the end of Extra
Time.

It did feel terrible - but perhaps Sheffield can do next year what
Palace did this and come right back. I just hope Palace can emulate
Leicester and survive next Season (a cup would be nice). It won't be
easy.
