Watched it wi mi dad at home on black and white TV.

As a Wolves fan and watching some great tussles between both clubs in that same season, I was firmly backing Utd.
And why not? United had a fine team and had worked hard for it.

Was a great night, and mi dad, who used to watch them when he was working in Manchester, was duly made up.

What a contrast to Saturday night's Champion's Cup debacle.

But footy was different then: it was miles better.

Great player though.

Any idea?

I have perused more than once but cant find anything apertaining to the game jarvo.

You would have thought a channel would have found a slot for a tribute .

Posted by: jarvo (28203)  Report abuse
Being the first English team to win it, I would have thought so.
