Hi Sunny.

The Villa programme didn't include the FL review after 1969, as I recall, when Villa went to a 'magazine-style' programme.

I realise this may not help!

31:27 Brian Moore... "There it is, Martin Chivers. Spurs are ahead, and they really don't deserve to be"
I think Brian Moore  was a Spurs fan, fair play to the great commentator.

He made up for it in 1982!

Great to watch that....my first ever visit to Wembley as a young 16 year old, great day, great performance, tragic result.

A springboard to greater things...if only for fans undoubtedly.

That's how old I was on the day, with similar feelings to boot!

If only Andy had hit the  bloody ball harder and gave Perryman no chance to get back .I think most people were expecting the foul to be given but Andy failed to play to the whistle and only kind of half hit his shot

That's exactly what happened, with all the Spurs players seemingly frozen, waiting for the whistle to blow.

Except for that bastard Perryman, of course!

Perryman lived up the road from us for a while, but I was still too sore to talk about this. Never known support like the Villa fans at Wembley that day, absolutely awesome. Was totally gutted though and cried all the way home on the Football special from Wembley Central.U was only 10 in my defence.

Yes, the support was superb, and there were a few tears at this end as well.

Decades later, I heard Perryman being interviewed on the radio, just before he was retiring as Director of Football at Exeter, and he came across as a good bloke.

Wow.  50 years ago today!  I'm feeling all emotional again, just as I did a couple of months ago when it was the 50th anniversary of wining the semi-final.

My first visit to Wembley, fantastic occasion, Villa fans were unbelievable. We were playing a very good Spurs team, which included Jennings, Knowles, Mullery, Gilzean, Perryman, Chivers and Peters, they ended up 3rd in the league. Remember the late great Spurs boss Bill Nicholson praising us highly, although I don't think he went as far as to say we were the better team, which we were for the first 78 mins.

Two days after I was born. I had a ticket obviously, but they wouldn’t let me out of Marston Green hospital. Red tape.

Some great footage out there on youtube
My favourite kit
listen as spurs go up for the cup, Wembley resounds to, Villa, Villa, Villa
Really a milestone on our way back, respect from the media and acknowledgement of the latent/actual/ potential support we had
