Im not old enough to remember that but I remember going to wembley against Arsenal 3 times at 9 year old and never winning once.

But Steven Morrow broke his arm riding on a donkey

Will bring back memories for many.

 

Highlights to me how the FA Cup has been ruined, there was no need whatsoever to change anything about it.

 

 

Totally agree

 

4 replays suits everyone!

IIRC was driving down to Leicester in thick fog, with a risk of the game being called off.  Exciting cup ties though, great spirit from the lads.

143,916 fans went to the games, so it suited them.

Went to 4, missed Highbury.

 

Same here. Never happen again.

 

Arsenal had everyone of their 'star' players play in every game. Magical days but reflects just how much football has changed.

I was at uni in London at the time.

 

Home for Christmas for Hillsborough.

 

Back in the smoke for Highbury.

 

Hitchhiked to Leicester for the last three.

 

Arrived late and didn't get in to the last one.

 

Got lifts back with Arsenal fans for two of them.

Arsenal had some real top players then and we just would not lay down for them and made them fight for everything, great quote from Arsenal Manager 'Sheffield Wednesday showed their spirit and attitude' bit of that would be nice nowadays.

Though Steve Ellis's photo from the Kop of the snow clearing has me leaning on a shovel looking like I'm doing sod all !! lol

This lot would refuse to play and demand two weeks in the Maldives to recover at the shock.
