My brother's just reminded me that we were there when we beat them at Utd 40 years ago. Wonderful. remember us leaping in the air, then looking around at a sea of ugly faces. Made it all worthwhile, though we left the ground cautiously...Anyone remember that match?
Think it was their first home defeat in over a season Joe as they had been undefeated the season before - `Old` Div 2
But at the time it wasn't considered to be a major shock. It was bloody fantastic though!
Been close a couple of times 2-1 with 9 mins to go - Sparkys 1st season ? And 1980 penned in behind the goal 2 up after 15 mins, Scary but great until bizarelly i think two future stoke managers scored Lou and Jordan ?
We had a lot of injuries, if I remember, so a lot of younger players - two young full backs - John lumsden? And a local full back from Audley who went to Crewe - cant remember his name for the mo' - bluto was one of the older players - I can still remember him loping forward and pointing to bomber sheldon where he wanted the cross to go - bomber delivered and bluto finished it off!! Were the shit on for the double at the time?
