I can only find the 2nd leg held at the Home of Football. Sorry.

Not sure why anyone would be interested in watching us losing 1-0 TBH ! There is nothing on the EUFA website either footage-wise but there is a partial match report.

I think the only picture I have ever seen from the first leg is of Dennis Mortimer shaking hands and exchanging pennants with their captain at the kick off. I have never seen any video footage. The second leg was one of my most memorable Villa Park games. What an atmosphere, stoked up by Barcelona's 'tactics'. They made Wimbledon at their worst look like choirboys.

That's why I was asking, not because I want to see a video of us losing but because I don't think I've ever seen any footage of the first leg. Only 40,000 at the Nou Camp I think

Read me

I read that when it was published a couple of years ago and loved it. I forwarded to a couple of non-Villa supporting mates because of the quality of writing and they also thought it was superb.

Re the away leg, I have never seen any footage nor met anybody who went. I have read various accounts of people who went there in 1978 but never from anybody who attended this game.
