Hi Dave.

It was certainly 1964 and I think in the month of March.

Don't ask me why but I remember wearing a West Ham tie.

I was at the front just to the side of the goal where we scored the second half goals, so i got completely saturated, so much so that my tie shrunk and I could not loosen it.

I spent the four hour journey home nearly strangled, so it was a great relief to get home and get the scissors to cut it off.

But what a game, one that I will always remember, including that bloody tie!

As I have a holiday home in Chloraks near Paphos, we frequently visit, so it is lovely to hear from a Hammer in Cyprus.
