Happy days. The first real cup final I remember. I was 9 in 83 so don't remember it as well. Staying up for the replay above and watching it was brilliant.

Back then Cup Final Day was a full day. Watching the interviews in the hotels in the morning, then the coaches would set off and the helicopters would film them en route. Interviews with the fans, celeb fans (who didn't seem such cockwombles back in the day) and other little featurettes.

Then there was the match itself. Protestations about the Moran sending off, worries about extra time being 10 v 11, that goal from Norman, then my Nan hoping Kevin got a medal because he's worked so hard for us all year. She was right; not a month seemed to go by without reports of him nearly swallowing his tongue!

Ah, nostalgia's not what it used to be.

Brian Moore probably the best tv football commentator there has been.

Thumbs up

Louis Edwards and Matt Busby sat having a drink in the old executive suite ....so I wandered over asked if they had any spares (I know, )......told them I'd come all the way down from Cumbria and couldn't get one.......not the 10 miles id really come

LE gets out his fat wallet and takes out a ticket ...hands it over.....

Face value.....fair play to the bloke

Wouldn't go that far, but he was decent.
