I'd like to re-live the Everton matches as I was too young to really appreciate them at the time and also the Sheff Utd replay coz I missed it..yeah that's right...got to all the other crappy games that year but missed that one. Although I did get to the away 2-2 and remember Bramhall Lane as a PROPER football ground.

Ah the Everton away game ... happy memories:

Going to the kiosk to buy 40 cigs (yes you could do that in a ground then) for 20p a packet, giving the bloke a pound and getting 2 x 50p's as change instead of a 50 and a 10. I said I thought I'd been given the wrong change and was told "Don't get smart just coz you're f**king winning!"

Peter Eales giving Latchford the "kiss of life" full-on snog after one of his theatrical dives for a pen!

Taking my old Dad in his last year with his bad leg and him kicking his tea down the neck of the Evertonian in front when we scored (we were in the steeply-sloped stand where the person in front's head was level with your knees). THAT was absolutely p**s funny!  Grin
