How did we lose that?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Going through some old stuff and came across this programme. The shivers are still running down my spine 44 years later! 

This is a topic for only people who were alive when Job was a lad, but how on earth did we lose the tie and ultimately our first "silverware"? 

Please put away any sharp implements now!

For me it has to be Good Friday (not) 1979 when we were 3 nil up at Wigan with less than 20 minutes to go.  Final score,  Wigan 5 Port Vale 3  Shocker!

OF, those days I used to have to work on Good Fridays so skipped work to go to the game. 

At 3-0 up I thought that the rollicking I was going to get at work was well worth it. 

After 90 mins, I wasn't so sure. Threatened with sack etc etc Thanks again Vale!!

I remember Vale being 4 nil up against Hereford think by half time a Mick Cullerton hat trick and never made the next round emoji51.png

More recently, QPR.

Remember that one well. Tommy McLaren's Boots and me were waiting for the team to emerge after the match so we could tell Dennis Butler (manager) to resign. We apologised to him a couple of weeks later but he was OK about it; really nice guy, too nice to be a football manager.

Remember it well...thank you Jermaine Holwyn.

A horrible moment that.

After that game I would happily have ordered a hit on him but, as the years have gone by, there's absolutely no excuse for what we did as a whole team after that went in.

Completely and utterly capitulated to a man.

For those who want to watch some quality action, I recommend the first 45 mins of the below.

For those of you of a sadomasochist tendency you can watch the entire 90 mins...

This is one of the "full match" videos I ran on the site last summer, there's some more on the OVF YouTube channel -

Was it Greavsie who said at HT it was like watching Real Madrid? Then the ref missed the 5th goal. Still have nightmares.

I remember being in the bycars for this game and the people we always sat behind, turned to me and my dad at half time, wide-eyed and completely confused at being 4-0 up 45 minutes in.

And then it all went wrong.
