Two years ago to the day Leicester City were relegated to English football's third tier.
Memories of the minority group of Stoke cretins who ran to our end of the pitch to goad at the final whistle pitch invasion rather than embrace their own side's promotion to the Premiership remain, but we may just meet again sooner rather than later.
After a torrid five years dropping from the Premier League to League One there seemed to be little light at the end of a seemingly endless tunnel. That was until that man Nigel Pearson showed up.
Two years after that disastrous day at the Britannia we sit in eager anticipation at the prospect of a Championship play-off semi-final first leg in just five days time. Quite some turnaround most would agree, and one that lends itself incredibly to the work of our manager in that two years.
In his time at Filbert Way Pearson has crafted the squad his own way, youth playing a substantial role in his flight to success over the past two seasons.
What was a depleted and expired first team squad when he took the reigns is now a fresh and exciting lineup ready to conquer most in the Championship, a sign which bodes well for City as they look to take their form into difficult matches against Cardiff City.
And there is certainly nobody you would rather have in charge going into the play-offs.
Unlike his predecessor Holloway, Pearson has never been one to feel comfortable in the media, his aversion often quite clear at times. But whilst the spotlight is not on him the pressure is off the players, and for us fans this is absolutely fine by us.
He is by no means perfect like any other manager out there, but what Pearson has done in his time so far is nothing short of spectacular whatevere the outcome of this season.
The sooner contract talks are opened at the end of the season the better.
Now, being potentially just three matches away from the Premier League seems extremely surreal. But you'd better believe it...
