Hi Steve

Heck Steve you are just a young whippersnapper. I actually remember that game. Of course this was way before Fergie.

In those days my dad used watch all United's games. This was before sports came to TV.    On a Saturday evening my brother and I sat and listened to the football results on the radio with my mother.She used to make our teas but she never started to cook my dad's tea until she heard how United had gone on. If they hadn't won she didn't cook it because he used to go in the pub if they lost. We never saw him until we got up on Sunday mornings.

Tough times in those days.

United play Chelsea this week - the Pundits have forecast a 1-1 draw.

That would be a good result for you.
