    One wonderful moment was Dave Webb’s last minute winner against Stoke City, the Loft went barmy.

    It was none to pleasant walking down South Africa Road after the game.
    And Stoke city had Allan Hudson as their midield general back in those days, I think. He was a great player.

    Ok. And the season after I think I saw Don Givens play for Neuchatel Chamax in Switzerland, They played in European tournaments I believe.. As you ofcourse mentioned Stan Bowles,he went on to play for Nottingham Forest and that move basically spelled the end of an erea for us. I guess the squad were too thin, but I have never really understood why we couldnt keep the momentum somewhat going..

    A correction to my earlier post, I saw us lose at Norwich as well, I guess the trauma of the day made me forget it.

    With regards to support it difficult to say, I was in the corner with thousands of us packed into some shitty wired pen, it was very hot on the day, when we scored it was bedlam and you couldnt tell if there Rangers elsewhere in the ground, but I would be very surprised if there weren’t.

    I would say a minimum of 5,000 and possibly a couple of thousand others dotted around Carrow Rd in the seats.

    I remember coming out at the final wistle and their scummy fans taking the pi ss, that lasted for about a minute.

    The best away support we’ve ever had that I know of, was either Villa Park in 68 when we got promoted or that cup game at Selhurst Park against Wimbledon, both in excess of 15,000.
    We were in the wrong end about 5 of our group and about 6 others they took us out of their end marched around the pitch to the other end it was like a caged pen as someone has stated when Dave Thomas equalised it went into mayhem, but sadly the dream faded on that fateful day, I think the whole history of our club could've changed on that day had we won the league, being a better footballing side, than Liverpool, we may have even gone on to win the European cup? as Liverpool did, our team was definitely good enough, which I feel in turn would've changed our history dramatically

    Yes they were like a Dutch team.
    The players were all comfortable in their atyle of play and the forward 3 were mobile quick and had the skill to deliver.

    Dave58, you are correct that we will not see the like again in the modern game.
