    I am absolutely delighted to get my hands on this FA Cup match from The Big Match in 1973, and pleased to be able to share it with you. I had no idea video footage of it existed until about a week ago. It was Jimmy Hill's first game as commentator, apparently.

    Incredible atmosphere in the second half as each team tries to kick lumps out of each other!

    Would be interesting to kknow which NSC'ers were at this match.

    (I hope the text on the screen throughout doesn't interfere with your watching too much).

    Yeap I was there in the North Stand, I remember Eddie Sperritt having a big lump on his face after Chopper Harris wacked him and Harris said after the game that he did not touch him. Hated Chelsea since that day

    I was there and I hope George Ley never pays for the club again after that.
    So, many, many thanks and see you soon, because itís not a goodbye, I know I will come back, I have to.

    That match, in case anyone needs reminding, was game 11 in a run of 13 consecutive defeats!

    Yes, we were bottom of League 2, they were a good league 1 team with many stars.

    Hard fought & bad tempered game on & off the pitch.
    40 years of watching the Albion makes me an official Boring Old Git.
