Back in the day when the only live soccer match on TV was The FA Cup Final, everyone looked forward to it with great anticipation. It was viewed as a national event and of great significance.
It was the first and only opportunity for children to watch soccer at the top level and it was not unusual for them to ignore family loyalty and local allegiance and commit to a lifetime devotion to one or other of the participating clubs. One often encounters this explanation today.
It's very different today with a daily diet of live soccer from all over the world on our screens and laptops, many clubs treat the competition with undisguised contempt and an irritable intrusion in the season.
Think yourself lucky Beefy that Leeds did not lose that final, or you might have committed yourself to a life of unmitigated shame and embarrasment following their opponents.
