NEW QUIZ, Name the match

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

I think the answer is:

Hereford United 2-1 Newcastle United (aet)

5 February 1972

FA Cup 3rd Round Replay.

The two managers initials don’t fit though ?

Colin Addison Hereford & Joe Harvey Newcastle United

Although listed as a friendly this was probably instrumental in creating a major tournament.
The two managers ….. & J.K shake hands and take their seats in the dug out
The two captains exchange pennants and toss the coin for kick off.
It was a cold wet winters evening the match kicked of in front of over 55,000 fans,
The first half saw the away team take an 2-0 lead in the first 15 mins.
Half Time 0-2

Insufficient info for me John, will need to take another look later.
It’s probably post late 50’s early 60’s which is when floodlights were installed.
Not many clubs would attract 50k plus crowds.
The only manager I can think of with initials JK is Joe Kinnear who at that time wasn’t even playing let alone managing.
Probably need Clue 2.

your working out was brilliant Andy,

CLUE.2.


it was a very iconic match in the history of football.
the 2nd half kicked of under the lights which had been installed earlier.
in the 49th minute the home side pulled one back from the penalty spot, this remained the score until within just two minutes the home side scored two more goals via the centre forward W..S...to make it 3-2.
Result 3-2.

forty years later they staged this match again after the death of the manager of one of the sides,

this should help solve the match
CLUE 3.

Both teams had won their respected leagues that season,
Rumours were the staff and apprentices were sent out to water the pitch at half time
to stop the away sides fluent passing. Which included an apprentice called Ron Atkinson
After the win the home side were declared "champions of the world"
The away side included 7 players (including One of the world greats going by the name of F.P. ). who only the year before the country had made history,
