Fantastic memories of a superb match in what was a great season to follow the Villa. I was there on the Holte with my Dad (HEITS) as well, perched on my little stool, barrier behind us halfway back up the Holte just to the left of the goal. A whole community around us that we got to know through going week in week out. The atmosphere was what made it for me as the football was blood and thunder with only flashes of quality. The Villa, Villa chant still makes the hairs on the back of my neck rise!
I was incredibly lucky to be part of a generation growing up on that incredible rise from Division 3 to glory in Rotterdam, and even luckier to be born into a claret and blue family!
Hopefully a few HEITS have spent the last few days discussing what a great game that was.

Yes, agree. What a decade from 1972 to 1982! I've seen it all, one thing missing though is seeing Villa lift the FA Cup. It could happen one year....

I posted on another thread, after Andy scored the second in front of the Holte, if you look at the clip, the first guy on the pitch wearing a crombie was my old school friend Stevie Haddon.
A couple of years ago, I can not remember the game, he had a Heart attack at the game, his daughter was with him and the paramedics ressucitated him.

   my eldest, 29, has carried the baton, & when I tell him what it was like in the early 70s & 80s I know he takes it in....I just want him to taste what I felt from 72-82, just imagine if the Interweb was around then....what a story.
