Video of the Day: Birmingham City vs Ipswich Town, 1982

by | Jan 7, 2016

This morning’s video of the day continues our run for this week of half-forgotten FA Cup Third Round matches of the past, taking us all the way back to January 1982.

The commentary comes, in his last season as the Midlands’ voice of football, from Hugh Johns.
