Yeah I remember in the 90s coverage started about 9am on the BBC and they'd show the whole build up, Interviews with managers, Team bus arriving, Highlights from each teams route to the final and all without McDonald's trying to make me buy a burger or Ray Winstone or Brian Blessed shouting at me to put a bet on. It was great.It was a real showpiece occasion back in the day , it’s disgraceful
I think it’s fair to say nobody outside of Coventry gave us much chance. When Allen’s goal went in I was convinced we were going to get hammered. Well, until Benno scored and then it felt like it was gonna be our day.From what I’m seeing, our players were there for a day out. The smiles from the players and Sillett and Curtis are nice to see. In the other camp, sour faced Pleat, serious Tottenham faces - like they absolutely can’t stand the fact we didn’t roll over and gave them a game.
Like the bunch of cunts you’d come up against at 5-a-side taking things way too seriously.
