Very similar memories to yours Chipper, but would add the soaking at Maine Road in the second Liverpool replay. Me and a couple of mates went down to Wembley on the official coaches but ended up drinking all night with some Everton lads in a pub somewhere near the old Arsenal ground. The gaffer let us stay the night and we then caught the early train to New St from Euston. All a bit of a blur really but we all stayed in touch for some years until things like getting married or going abroad got in the way. Ah such happy times supporting this club.

Ah yes, Maine Road! What a night. Again, there with Mom and Dad. We’d been to Anfield for the first replay then up to Manchester for the second.

I was young but I remember the excitement of it all, singing “We Shall Not Be Moved” and eating chips in the pouring rain after the game.

The fabulous all white kit, Kenny Stephens disallowed goal (would’ve made it 3-1), John Kaye with his head bandaged. And of course goals from Chipper and the King.

Great days.
Born Baggie. Die disheartened.
