Traveled all the way for this game from Ramstein, Germany and then went back the next day.  A lot happier I can tell you.

A number of players were on top of their game that day.

Micky Walsh was a fabulous player for us, when fit.

It keeps freezing and jumping for me, anyone else got the same problem, or is just me?

Not for me - is it your Interweb connection? Or perhaps the "Premiere" feature YouTube uses? If the latter it may be worth trying it again tomorrow when it will be a "normal" clip to view as per normal.

There are the odd flickers and things which are due to the age of the VHS but I did have some testers take a look at the clip and it worked OK for them too.

Sorry you are having problems.

Seems to have settled down now....

I never did see the penalty kick. Turned my back until I heard the roar. I'll try and be brave and watch it this time...

My eldest daughter is watching down in Hereford. She says she can't believe it was 19 years ago. She was 9 at the time

Another really enjoyable game on a lockdown evening. We battered them from the moment they scored and thoroughly deserved to win. Great match to watch - keep 'em coming, Rob!

Thanks for doing this again.  Much appreciated and brought back loads of memories of the pubs before where the fans were singing and just enjoying it.  Then the atmosphere in the ground during and after the game.  That was a great game of attacking football.

Thanks. I will try. I've got a lot of Vale videos but I think I'm down to about another half a dozen full matches. The next one may be a lesser known one...

Thanks, Rob.

The Vale lads played really well that day and thoroughly deserved to win the game.

We ran the show for most of the 90 minutes and it would have been daylight robbery if we hadn't won the match.

Brentford have a fabulous team now but back then were a physical, long ball outfit. But with so many tall players they are bound to have a chance or two.

More wonderful memories. I do like that stadium.
