Just been watching this for no reason - not very original I know but worth 5 minutes of anyone's time.  David Lee and McGinlay absolutely top drawer.  And I hadnt noticed the Redknapp x-rated foul on Lee near the end, could have injured him badly and looked like he meant it.

 

Could watch it every day. Lee's finest hour.

Only 4 years after Paul Hanley's videos too.

Still raises the hairs on the back of the neck. Fuck me - even off those highlights can you imagine what VAR would have done to ruin the entire night?

first tie is always worth a watch as well for how much we batter them in the first half

I thought we'd blown our chance by not seeing them off in the original tie, but without letting them back in at home, we'd never have had "that night".

When we drew at home, I didn’t think about the chance blown , but the chance to see my team play at Anfield was the kicker. To hear the roar of the Kop and to quieten that roar. Beltin!

Me too.  In those days, occasionally one of the big sides might get held to a draw but then give their lower league opponents a proper shoeing in the replay.

I went into Anfield that night hoping we'd at least score and not disgrace ourselves.  I'd not even sat down before I was tumbling over a couple rows after leaping up when SJMs header went in!

Great to see that again.  I hadn't realised how much we gave them their 2 goals - McGinlay putting Rosenthal through, Seagraves finishing it off for him, then a back pass to gift them the equaliser.  Thank God we let them back in or Anfield never happens.  If ever one game gave a club a peg up from doldrums to big time that was it.  Dave Higson getting interviews with the big names after the game too, classic stuff.

Oh, for that forward line now! And ye, Cuntknapps foul on Lee could have been a leg breaker! I couldnt remember that at the time either, prob because we were 2-0 up and didnt give a shit!

being pedantic, Winstanley

I love how on the equaliser Dave Higson is about to say someting he shouldn't, presumably "you scaley bastards", then stops himself and says "you lucky lot" instead

a true pro

My mate who is a Huddersfield fan - loved that bit of commentary from Dave.  Almost as legendary as “they think it’s all over........“

Well spotted, that trusty Winny right peg!   Seagraves was the guilty party for the equaliser with that wierd back pass.

Nothing against either centre back, but a bit out of depth at that level, and we had Stubbs on the bench (and McAteer?).  Its like we didn't even play our strongest team!

Can't find details of who was on the bench but recall that 17 year old Fowler (yet to make his debut) was on the bench for them in the replay

The 2-2 draw substitutes McAteer and Stubbs and for the replay it was Stubbs and Reeves .

For the scousers in the 2-2 it was Paul Stewart and Ronny Rosenthal , and the replay was Robbie Fowler and Don Hutchinson.

Sadly when Stubbs and McAteer did play and Seagraves and Winstanley were missing we got knocked out by Derby.

first game was amazing and i thought we'd blown it. Gutted that living in London the time I couldn't get up to the midweek replay, but it was on the day of my leaving do and after a day on the sesh we ended up back in the staff club, and I didn't know the score - so I've still got photos of me celebrating, absolutely battered beyond redemption, in front of the club's tv watching the highlights. Big regret not being there (Arsenal in the Cup made up for it even though that involved getting there and back from Southampton that night) but at least I've got the photos of me soiling myself in joy, albeit from highlights.

Good info.  I might be imagining it but I thought Lydiate played too?  I went to Derby and we weren't at the races it felt like we'd just used up all our cup energy in the previous rounds, it was our 6th cup game, to Derby's 3rd.  In hindsight, a good game to lose, we played 7 league games in March and won 6 and still only went up by 1 point.  I don't see that happening with a big quarter final to play too.  That season was up there as one of our best ever surely.

Yep Lydiate did play sadly  , in fairness I was loads more gutted the following season after Oldham . 

Promotion was definitely the ultimate goal that season and beating Liverpool was the topping on the cake and anything thereafter was a bonus. But for me that season is definitely up there with my favourites.

I was in full length plaster due to breaking my leg playing footie.

Ex-missus drove me up from Reading to both games.  Back seat of a fiesta was not comfy.

Margaret from the ticket office was an angel.  Parking at Burnden and seats on the subs bench for the first game and freebies for Anfield.

Thanks to the ex (except when she asked Joh Barnes if he was the bloke from the Lucozade ad) and the lovely Margaret!  Anyone remember her?

For the "big Big boys" there was no such thing as squad rotation or resting players back then. I remember coming home after that match and being well pissed off that we didn't win. I was not a nice person to be around for days after that match. Happy days!
