Top night and watching them all lift the cup again was the icing on the cake!

Took my Dad along and we had a great evening.

Despite being too young to have seen us lift the Cup, or to have even seen any of the 1980 squad play I personally had a fantastic night. This morning however, my main emotion is jealousy...jealous of the majority of the audience that got to experience that amazing day. Hope I get to in my life time. Only wish the squad could have been there too...you could be heroes today and heroes still in 40 years! COYI

May 10th 1980 remember that day so well like it was just yesterday, I had only been supporting the hammers for two years so to experience a cup run all the way to final as a 9 year old was unreal. Even to this day it was the most nervous I had ever been for a game, I don't think I moved off the sofa all day I couldn't wait for the game to start but in those days the cup final day build up on TV started about 9am in the morning. I do feel sorry for our fans who never got the chance to experience a day like that but hopefully under MP that day will arrive sometime soon!!!!!!

I do hope that that is just a very bad photo as they all look very, very old and first impressions were that the front row were all in wheelchairs ! :cry:

Can only add to the above, a top night with all the guys on form. I hope Frank Lampard is ok.

Bloody brilliant night, they really seem like they all get on really well still, just can't imagine the current crop of modern day footballer doing this sort of thing 30 odd years later!

Hats off to Tony Gale, he really is good at these nights, and translating for Tonka was top class :lol:

Only down side was only Paul Allen, Phil Parkes and David Cross stayed behind doing some autographs, bit disappointed for my old man as he had his cup final programme and was hoping to get a few more autographs in there!

Top top night though, would recommend these to anyone if the future, regardless of age as the stories are just fantastic

One thing that made me laugh was watching the security man ,who was looking after the FA cup,****ting his self as the players passed the cup around,
The sad thing about it was not being allowed to put claret & blue ribbons on it ,because of Emirates sponsorship ribbons had to be on instead

I am not sure if this will be the last of these shows but I am pleased to hear that everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and on behalf of the organisers I would like to thank you all for coming along last night and all the previous years as well.
