Even then, Aldrige runs in the box, gets tackled, the lad got the ball but the fuckers got the penalty. Aldo said in the interview that the lad got the ball. Of course, Beasant in the Wimbledon goal saved it and the rest is history. Even in that game, the ref was looking for a chance to even it up.
It has never stopped. This is why, to beat the "so-called" big boys, you have to make sure... you have to hammer them. Two, three goals ahead and even the refs can't stop you.
The best bit was Vinnie Jones cleaning out Stevie McMahon in the first few minutes with a tackle that, these days, would get a 6-month ban! Mustard.

Aldo's a prick. A wanker of a man. When the semi-final against Forest was replayed after the Hillsborough disaster, he took great delight in ruffling the young Forest player's head after he scored an oggy for the first goal.
I was fortunate to be at a sportsman's dinner quite a few years later and spoke to Stuart Pearce and Tony Adams about this. Trust me, neither were big fans of Aldo, sound as a pound, or that football club!

I'm on one now 😀. I remember listening to radio commentary after Chelsea got past them in a European Cup Semi-Final and got to Chelsea's first ever European Cup Final and the Chelsea fans were dancing and celebrating away.
Aldo said on radio "I can't believe how disrespectful the Chelsea fans are being" or words to that effect. And they wonder why I have a mild dislike of them!

He has form for it. Did the same to Portugal keeper Victor Baia after an oggie playing for Ireland in 95.
Nowadays, a know-nothing rent-a-quote for anything to do with that horrible football club.

A great cup final, only beaten by 1984 and 1995.

Very few players deserve it more. Excellent stuff.

Thankfully... I was right! Now... 1987 final... Best final ever not to have the Blue Boys playing in!!

I remember thinking at the time that the other twat would have had a petition with 10,000 names on it demanding a replay.

The 1982 Final was shite too... even the replay!

Mr Smith, 53, said he intended to launch a private prosecution against the worker who named him and would appeal against the panel's decision.
"I'm going to fight this all the way. I'm going to take it further. It's disgraceful. Evidently they don't believe what I say."
Mr Smith claimed that the benefits office worker had bragged in the office about his success in getting the disability stopped.

I say this because in Stuart Pearce's autobiography he mentioned how Aldo did once, was criticised and apologised AND then did it again in another match!
Pearce said if he'd done it to him the second time he'd have flattened him right there and then!
