A 2nd City derby that’s still recalled from Oct 1983
Some reckless challenges & Noel Blake dropping a nut on Steve Macmohn on the final whistle in retribution for a reckless tackle on Paul Broadbent earlier(he was out for 6 months)
After the game the Blues players piled into the Villa dressing room for a huge scrap.
Birmingham players were known as ‘The Wild Bunch’ they made the Crazy Gang at Wimbledon look like ***** cats in comparison.

Interesting story of Jimmy Greaves & Rally Driving before the 1970 World Cup in Mexico.

Jimmy's story of breaking in to the British consulate to see Bobby Moore when he was under house arrest is also quite amusing.

A brown leather ball.I wonder when the ball went to white as the norm ?
I can remember the orange ball for games in snowy conditions in the 1970s.

I remember this game.There was a pitch invasion after the penalty that put Forest 3-1 up.
A huge row about it on the Monday.The rearranged game was at Goodison Park iirc.

One of the great World Cup games.

Edit..Perhaps not..Link broken !

It was Rossi’s hatrick in the 3-2 win against Brazil in 1982.
