1969 scottish cup final- Attendance: 132,000 and plenty of room!

Celticvs Leeds utd- attendance 136,505 bit tighter! ๐Ÿบ ๐Ÿฅณ
I was at both games and they would be in my top ten best games at Hampden. Went to the Leeds match with my mate. Gary Sprake, the Leeds keeper pulled the ball back as it was going over the line, no goal given. I got skelped on the head with a bottle thrown from behind me and my long thick hair at the time saved me from damage. Other fans were helping me by given me a hankies and clearing broken glass from my hair and right shoulder and checking for cuts, 4mins later, my mate says, did you hear that someone's been hit. "Yip", it was me". You couldn't keep your eyes off that game . it became a record for the biggest attendance at a European match. (I wish I still had that hair).HH

Stood behind Huns keeper that day and had a great view of the ball skelping the net 3 times in the first half. The Huns blamed Alex Ferguson for not marking Big Billy at the first goal and duly got rid of him.HH
You were in the same place as me Saul.

Fergie losing Big Billy for the goal, might not have helped his career but I'm sure there was another reason he was drummed out of ibrox, something to do with his good lady .๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

I'm watching this game on YouTube now.

Hmm, there's something not quite right about the starting 11... can't quite put my finger on it. It's like seeing Anakin Skywalker play up front for us ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
