I wanted to be there but unfortunately that was the day I got married.............for the first time! Was asking all the time what was the score but it wasn't so easy in those days. Honestly couldn't believe it when I found out we'd lost 5-1. A really rotten day for me!!!!!

Cross got at least 3, possibly 4. Think it was Stewart ? (first name escapes me) who kicked Bobby C around.

Was there sat on the barrier at the front of the Pontoon, right next to the kid that Billy Bonds gave a shovel-like handful of money that had been chucked on the pitch when West Ham were defending our end.

I was there too.  They were excellent and physical too.  We were a good side that season but they made us look ordinary that day.

I was at the game and remember taking the bus to Blundell Park and there were some West Ham fans also on the bus.

They were talking amongst themselves saying how clean and tidy it was in this area which I was chuffed at.

The game itself I can't remember much about (wasn't it raining hence the bus - funnily enough I can remember the League Cup quarter final in 1965 much better which I swear is the best game I have ever seen at BP.
