Great pictures, Nunkin. I recall reading these articles at the time (1971).

Cheers and its great to contribute a little bit to the thread.
It must have been a very emotional and proud day to be a Villa fan.
Standing toe to toe with Spurs must have  been a special experience.

It was! We played really well.

All you could hear as Spurs went up to get the cup, were the Villa fans, who were brilliant all game.

posted on this thread before
The size and passion of our support was recognised  around now, record Div 3 attendance's, the Man Utd Semis.
The nerve tingling sounds at Wembley of, Villa, Villa, Villa  as spurs went up to lift the cup.
This was the bedrock of the 70,s years
