  • Thanks for thé info. Would've missed that.

    I can remember the 1970's cup finals, but I don't remember Wigan winning in 2013.
  • Watching Palace Vs Man Utd. David Madden on bench, was one of the most talented all-round midfielders I've seen for us.  Bows excepted. Pass, tackle, dribble he had it all. Retired I think at 28. Sad.

    Just watched that - very enjoyable. Still brings a tingle down the spine even now. I remember not really being that bothered who won at the time, but I jumped off my sofa when the second went in.

    Given what was at stake and who was playing I just don't think you can ever have a more dramatic finish to a normal season than that.

    Coppell (manager) said he wanted to take the cup back to Croydon!

    Ditto. 31 years on and I still felt nervous watching that and elated with the winner, even though I don't like Arsenal and wasn't bothered who won.
  • I still find it remarkable that this was so soon after Hillsborough (about 6 weeks) and the focus was on the title (and the double) with little reference. I don't know if they were different times (it doesn't seem so long ago) but I can't see that the world would return to relative " normality" so quickly nowadays?

    Yes. I feel quite sure that if covid19 had hit back then, we wouldn't be pussyfooting around so much.

    And do you think more or less people would have died?

    More. 

    But they'd be fewer going out of business, getting overweight, getting depressed, and generally leading less fulfilling lives.

  • There would certainly be - they'd be dead. How much more of an unfulfilling life can you get than that - dying.
  • I give up.

    Less.

    More NHS resources, Thatcher in charge, less obese people & less old people around as they would have been dead already.

    The one big problem with the NHS system today is that we keep wanting to keep people alive. If it carries on the way it has been then in another 30 years time people will be living to 120 & having heart transplants at 100.

    The human species is not designed to live forever.

    Thatcher in charge...her slogan for 79 election was "1 million unemployed,  Labour isn't working " Two years later the figure had more than doubled.  People were less obese in two years because of that. Tebbit suggested people should find a job by getting on a bike. I had to get on a plane !

    It is only 150 years ago that in some cities the average life expectancy was 35 years.

    Thatcher helped cover up Hillsborough if I remember correctly  so that wasn't a golden era either.

    Why do PMs lie and cover up and take us for fools with every generation?
