I went to that game and went another time to Wembley the same year, to watch the first FA Vase final between my local team, Hoddesdon beat the Surrey wankers Epsom and Ewell 2-1 :-)






19075 was a good year sport wise

Re: 1975 FA Cup
I was six and my dad took me to Plaistow station to see the coach come past with the players sitting on top happy days indeed.
Saw some footage of the match the other day on you tube and there's a clip as the players are lining up and as bobby moore looks across at the west ham team you just see him mouth the words " alright bonzo " to billy bonds and I don't know why but it brought a lump to my throat

Remember watching our fans running on the pitch and trying to jump some partitions walls to do likewise walls and failing.

Also recall a large banner/ flag just behind me in claret & blue
with West ham 3 Dads Army 0 written on it .

Re: 1975 FA Cup
I was 6 but I do remember my old man making a fucking huge montage and stuck it in the kitchen window, so even during the day we had to have the lights on to see, and then a have a memory of him running up and down the back garden screaming his head off when the goals went in. And then he took me to the final in 1980, he's been gone for 8 years now and would be his birthday on Sunday, but the memories never fade.

I remember a street party down Chesley Gardens East Ham right after the 75 cup final.....

Happy days.

Re: 1975 FA Cup
My two regrets were not being there for both 75 and 80 cup parades, after going to both finals.

I seem to remember "It's a Cup Final Knockout" with Stuart Hall being on and I'm sure someone asked Jim to Fix it for them to meet the team. Such innocent days!!!!!

Re: 1975 FA Cup
I was 5 and its my first memory of anything to do with football.
Can't remember the game, don't think I even watched it, but I do remember my old man buying me and my brother loads of sweets to keep us quiet while he watched the match on the telly.
