Yes, 1967 to 1998 the longest season on record To be honest I have no memory of that match (too young) and my database is sparse of information on WBA team and scorers but if your Mum's boyfriend would like to write up a review match report we would be glad to have it.luthien wrote:I hope this isn't a sore subject for anyone (mentioning no names ), but my mum's boyfriend, who's a West Brom fan, told me to ask about this. Apparently, in the [pen]1967-98 season[/pen], sometime around March or April, United we playing West Brom at the Hawthorns and were 6-1 down with about 15 minutes to go. It finished 6-3, but United, he says, could have won, as they hint the woodwork plenty of times, and Denis Law smacked the ball over the bar from 2 yards out. He says that everyone who saw it agrees it was the worst miss they ever saw, apparently the whole ground was in hysterics, even the players of both sides! and you mention it to Denis Law these days, he just smiles and laughs. He says it was the second best game United and West Brom ever played.
Just wondered what the view from United fans around at that time was?
