54 years ago today, well done lads.more our dad’s time than ours how lucky were they.
speak for yourself, I remember it well.
…me too, I watched every second and it was absolutely brilliant, I may have only been eleven but I remember it all so clearly. That’s a sign of getting old. 😂
I was old enough to go to the pub and celebrate, in fact my dad got drunk.
My 14th birthday!! What a day for a boy of that age. I’ve never had a better present … not even close.
my memory is brilliant Ironawe but cant really remember much of the game that day, fair play to you its memories that count and am envious of you on that one, my birthday as well JustIron, happy birthday for yesterday,
I went to Hillsborough to watch Argentina play Switzerland and West Germany play Uruguay, paid on the gate to watch Argentina and bought a ticket that same night to watch Germany, and didn’t have to queue.
Didn’t you get pissed with ya dad mick? Happy days I am sure for you Mick.
I can’t remember but doubt it, I can only remember getting drunk once and I said never again, I used to like a beer but knew my limitations.
Mrs LesGeo was in Luneburg watching with a German family.
The only match my wife and I have ever watched together on TV. After 56 years of married life, football remains a bone of contention between us; but we have both survived.
