A screaming banshee of a match at Vicarage Road in the promotion season followed by the least conspicuous win of our end-of-season charge... Nicky Wright doing well in both. Prior to that, a defeat in the death throes of the 1996-97 season in which Gareth bloody Whalley scored.
After a poor start, the Alex rallied to finish nineteenth, a poor season for Crewe still being immeasurably better than anything Swindon could offer. Ha ha.
That Crewe exist at all in the Premiership age is cause for some celebration, that they maintain their status at this relatively high level is truly magnificent. Can't see them setting the world on fire this season, but there are enough clubs in the division with weaker squads and less intelligent management to ensure that the Alex should survive once again, possibly with a little more to spare this time.
