On This Day 14th February 1990

Postby Ibbyham » Wed Feb 14, 2018 1:17 am

Was a very painful match for me to remember, lost 6-0 to Oldham Athletic in League Cup Semi-Final at Boundary Park with plastic pitch that we couldn't cope at Valentine Day and Macari days was numbered.

That time I was only 15, in school, no girl-friend, just studying for my degree.

Liverpool won the last league championship in 1990, Nottingham Forest were regular top 8 and won the League Cup and Man Utd won the FA Cup, Fergie's first ever silverware courtesy of Lee Martin only goal in replay against Crystal Palace whom I was hoping to win. There were no f*cking billoinnaire taking overs clubs, 3 foreign players per teams, no over-spending, tickets were reasonable, Gazza making headline for himself and Stephen Hendry first winner out of 7 in The Crucible. The 4 league were in great shape and only Liverpool and Arsenal in regular top 4 side. Referee were good except Hackett whom I hated and never forgave him. Ceefax latest score were my favourite for how West Ham doing. How times has changed.

Plus all of you were young hammers, some refreshingly remember the good old Brooking era.

What about you all?

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

Well, Ibby, on this day in 1929, Al Capone got his boys to machine gun down 7 of his opposition. No roses or choccies for them suckers. :lol:
At least our defence only let them get 6. :lol:

I too was there. It showed how ridiculous plastic pitches were. They gave such an unfair advantage to teams used to playing on them. Ok we were shit but on a proper surface it would only have been 5.

You are describing another valentines day masacre. I think of all the cup defeats that goes down as one if the most dramatic when it comes to the final outcome, we went down fighting in the end but it wasn't enough only making up half the deficit. Yet another case of falling at the final hurdle in a cup that had more sparkle then than it has now.

A good person does things in silence, others strive to be seen as good so scream out their deeds.
