Agree about the fans, that day was when I developed a soft spot for Sunderland. 

I enjoyed the result too  Very Happy

I went by coach.
Coming back we stopped at some motorway service station as there was no bogs on the buses back then.
Everyone was drunk & I got on the wrong coach. Ended up at a strangers house in Doxford Park.
Kind of the fella to take me in. His wife even cooked me a breakfast in the morning & the bloke drove me to the bus station.

Sounded like a bitter sweet weekend.  The Milk Cup of human kindness runneth over.   Embarassed

Mind if Clive Walker had not missed one of the few penalties he ever did we may have had extra time.  It had been a non-event of a game summed up by an own goal and missed penalty but at least your name on a cup means something.

I was at that game - my first visit to Wembley and enjoyed every minute of it despite losing. Both sets of supporters showed what football is really about.

He just dumped me on the bed in the spare room.
When I woke up next morning I didn't have a f*cking clue where I was.
First & only time I've been to Doxy & I've never seen that fella since but I will always be grateful to him.

Aye maybe.
But put it this way, if if weren't for him I'd probably spent the night in a police cell.
I was late back to Catterick anyway & got docked a weeks wages.

They were throwing coins at us.
I got hit by a ground down 50p bit, just above my right eye.
Had to be stitched up & I've still got the scar.
Getting back to the coach was like running the gauntlet.
