    I was at that match with my father, I was 15 years old . We travelled up from the midlands with friends and we didnt have tickets.
    We purchased 4 resticted view tickets from a guy outside the ground for next to nothing and what a buy that turned out to be. The only restriction was one corner flag that we saw through perspex glass.
    We played fanatastic, probably the best I have ever seen the baggies play.
    Cunningham was out of this world and Regis, Bomber and Robson ran United ragged. The match had everything including fantastic goals (Cantello scored the goal of the season at that game).
    I’ll never forget that match for as long as I live.
