    Well, it’s obviously going to be Brighton and Hove Albion.

    What a great post. You have stirred some good memories for me there. Being only 26, I don’t remember the big shocks of the 70’s, but I can vividly remember Sutton/Coventry, Woking/WBA and Wrexham/Arsenal.

    Being a Sunderland fan, we are at Preston, so that wouldnt be a shock either eay. We suffered our own humiliation in 1949 (I think!) against Yeovil (non-leauge), and we were one of the best teams in the country with Shackleton etc playing for us. But nothing fills me with some unbrideled joy as watching Radford scoring against Newcastle for Hereford (1972) for the 100th time on Football Focus at this time of year…. he hee…

    I seem to recall the great “Cheltenham Robins” (nether reaches of Doc Martins league at the time, I think) beat Watford, or maybe it was a draw, either way, good effort from the little team…

    Some great memories there – thank you! One little error – I was at the Burnley Wimbledon game the shot that was parried by the Burnley keeper was by Ian Cooke – was Stevenson the Burnley keeper?

    Other than that – great stuff!
