    A bit of nostalgia for those who were there, the first step in our rise to the Premiership.

    Anyone recognise themselves as a young un ?

    Mark Lawn with his family.

    How many forecast the correct score 2 - 0, a few saying saying Des Hamilton and Mark Stallard.

    Remember the day well. Never seen that many City fans in one place.

    Recall the services at Leicester were closed as that many fans had stopped off. Queuing back onto the motorway IIRC?

    Notts County brought about 5,000 fans as IIRC they had been to wembley a fair few times in the years before and I guess the novelty wasn't there like it was for us.

    Des sort of miskicked the first as he fell and Stallard volleyed the second home right in front of 35,000 city fans, who went mental.

    Wembley Stadium was a bit of a shithole though. We were sat on wooden bench seats

    Brilliant day out.
    Took my dad and best mate with me. Everyone we spoke to predicted a 2-0
    I bought my tickets over the phone on 17 May while Mrs BP was in labour with my daughter.

    Totally dominated the day in every way - got slaughtered in Covent Garden after the game, my bro and I got in a lot of trouble for peeing in large plant pots outside a plush restaurant! (at least they weren't in it ;))

    Took my late dad (a city fan since just after the war) and 2 mates, earliest train from Leeds on Wembley way by 11 .30 then to a pub called the pantiles in Neasden which was full to the rafters with city fans. Sat in the Olympic gallery at Wembley can still visualise my old fella when des scored priceless memories
