48 years ago today was the first time i ever watched a colour TV when my dad and i were invited next door to watch the 197 FA Cup final replay. What a night. Never tell me the FA Cup means nothing.

[^] I was 12 years old, and had bet about 3 weeks dinner money with kids at school on us winning, The Osgood header to make it 1-1 still remains my favourite Chelsea goal. Apparently most of the pubs near the Bridge stayed open till the fans got back from Old Trafford and the party continued.

I was eight but so much of both games are still clear in my mind that I wish I could remember recent things with half the clarity I remember those days. In fact I can remember the scores from every game of that run and the 70/71 ECWC run but would not be able to remember much of our more recent runs.

Yeah I can’t even remember which games I’ve attended this season
