Let's put Mark Mansfield and Paddy Powell in the Museum

Let's have a campaign to get Mark Mansfield and Paddy Powell into the new Football Museum in Manchester

The BBC want to hear from supporters nominating their favorite football related piece of radio commentary. I'm sure Mark and Paddy's commentary on the penalty shoot out at the 98 play off final deserves a place in this hall of fame.

After Sasa's save Mark could barely speak and tried to hand over to Paddy who was just as speechless.

I'm sure there's a web link to the commentary somewhere but can't find it. Also, which radio station carried this broadcast? I think it may have been R.T.M.

Look at the BBC Website for details

"It has been 85 years since the BBC's Teddy Wakelam described the first football match to be broadcast live on the radio, as Arsenal entertained Sheffield United in a league match at Highbury in 1927.
In the time that has passed since, there have been thousands of BBC football commentaries transmitted, from the amateur game in Cumbria to the biggest of international nights at Wembley.

The BBC and the National Football Museum want to commemorate these great football commentaries and we need your input.
Remember when goalkeeper Jimmy Glass scored in the last minute to save Carlisle United's Football League status, and when struggling Northampton knocked Liverpool out of the League Cup?
Further back, there was Manchester United lifting the European Cup against Benfica, and Stanley Matthews conjuring up a famous FA Cup win for Blackpool against Bolton.

Which spectacular wins, cup runs, promotions, super survivals, glorious goals or bumbling bloopers are etched on your memory? Which local or national commentator has provided a soundtrack to your club's top moment?
We will celebrate the most unforgettable radio football commentaries in a live show on 28 May at 2000 BST and the National Football Museum will provide a permanent home for the chosen clips when it opens the doors of its new home in Manchester on 6 July.
Please give us your suggestion below and tell us the name of the radio station you heard the commentary on (if possible) and the club you support.
A selection of your comments will be used during the live broadcast. You can also share your memories at #bbcsportsday "
