30 Years Ago Tonight - Coventry (A) League Cup Quarter Final


Recommended Posts

I remember that thanks to our cup exploits for most of that season we'd actually beaten more top flight opponents than the pigs had when they were playing them every week. Should we beat Everton tomorrow (not expecting much to be honest) we can match them in that regard again. :biggrin:

Always find it amazing how footage from only 30 years ago looks so old 

 

It’s like the click of a finger and things started to look modern with HD etc

We ended up in a boozer with loads of Wednesday fans, there was a live band on and they ended up playing Singing The Blues.

Fantastic

We played superbly that night and should have won with ease. I always remember after the game a Coventry fan came bounding over towards us looking quite menacing only to tell us we were the best team they had played that season and to go on and win it. Oh for those days again

I was there. Brilliant night. It was bloody freezing ( it was Jan mind) I can remember some miserable fool complaining that “I haven’t paid to see your arms waving all match” 

I politely suggested he move.

Was in the home end. I think I remember Hirsty bossing Terry Butcher. Could that be right?

 

I was in the home end as well, stood behind the goal. You’re right, Horst bossed everyone that night, was magnificent

Peake probably. Butcher was manager

Butcher did play that evening. I believe it was his last appearance playing for Coventry it was also David Speedies last appearance for Coventry prior to moving to Liverpool.

Great night , the league cup then meant so much more than it does now , hence why it felt like something really special to get to the semi final.

Remember thousands of us being there and at the time we were a very good side.
