These are exciting times to be a Luton Town fan with a Championship play-off place up for grabs.
Our destiny is in our own hands, and we all know that if the Hatters can clinch a play-off place anything could happen.
Promotion, to the Premier League, could see the Hatters benefit from a massive financial boost.
But whilst the euphoria grips us all, perhaps we should sit back and reflect on how far we’ve come.
It wasn’t that long ago that we bade farewell to non-league football, after spending years trying desperately to escape its clutches.
Our movement, through the leagues, has been spectacular at times but also based on solid foundations.
I’m under no illusions that if we do get promoted, life in the Premier League would be a hard struggle, survival would be the sole target.
But it sure would be fun, mixing it with English football’s big guns.
In football, you sometimes can’t plot your future, it’s a game with its own quarks and charm.
Viewing social media, it does raise a chuckle to see posts like the one below:

I think I’d rather cross swords with that lot from down the road than pass them going in opposite directions.
But while, down the road, a possible Wembley final beckons, we should never forget the path we’ve trodden
Still all to play for. 3 home games to come. An incredible season regardless. Odds-on for highest finish in 30 years, with playoffs a bonus. We’re still progressing every single year. Our time will come. Perhaps this year, maybe next. Our rise will continue, so enjoy the journey!

I couldn’t have put it better myself.
