Villa 1 Barca 0 85 mins.

 

Incredible game.Seem to remember Mark Walters played incredibly well in extra time helping us to win.
He was a very talented player not sure if he fulfilled his potential.

I can't ever recall a noisier cup final!!

Fun fact for everyone, the lad with the 'Hello Mom' sign at 1:36 is @lapal_fan's brother. His dad is the good looking chap stood next to the man in the green and black muller shirt.

I were 3 year old when this game was played but if it's one game I wished I could of seen because of the rivalry, Heart, passion and determination by both sides to win in that day, it would be Villa V Birmingham City 1983.

Game looked brutal and I am trying to find a full recorded game to it..

I went to that, as a teenager. I don't remember the penalty miss by Noel Blake, just the amount of rain and the goal and people absolutely crammed at the rear of the Hole because the front was exposed to the weather. I had a notion Frank Worthington got sent off, which isn't on the video - maybe that was the year before, or after?

That brings back some memories. I remember being in The Old Contemptibles, that night with my mates and seeing Noel Blake with his girlfriend (who I knew). I had a quick chat and I think he had got the mistaken impression that I might be a Nose. On the way out, I grinned and said "Unlucky today Noel, loved you penalty by the way." From the look on his face, it seemed that I might have hit a bit of a raw nerve, so we didn't hang about on our way to the next pub! :D.

Love the people in the crowd doing that little pre celebration when it looks like the balls going in but they're not entirely sure then the bigger jump when it definitely goes in.  We've all been there.
