Remember where you were during all those landmark events in history? Churchill’s funeral, JFK’s assassination, the Twin Towers…… well I know exactly where I was forty years ago tonight. When the old order crumbled and the young guns set out on their irresistible road to glory…..
I was stood in the Trent End at the City Ground, Nottingham, sweating – like most of the 40,000+ souls around me – on whether that single Gary Birtles goal would be good enough to get us past the dogged Scousers over two legs of this first round European Cup tie. Would our European adventure be over without us even leaving these shores?
Then up popped Colin Barrett and the rest, as they say, is history.
