fabulous stuff, thanks for directing me to that site.

 

The Holte End was in black and white when I first started supporting the Villa as a nipper.

Who do you reckon would win, Baker or Gabby?

Tremendous stuff. I was watching the spurs clip thinking- who won this game, and then  it dawned on me it was a 1961 FA Cup match- which of course Spurs went on to win and claim the double-being the first to do so since the Villa in 1897. Silly me!

How lovely was the 1957 cup parade and how good would it be if it ever happened again?!
