The 1973 FA Cup Final Saw…

The 1973 FA Cup Final Saw…

My love for facts, stats and trivia lead me to try something different here on Vital Blackburn. On this occasion govtpros gave you a Trivia question to try and answer.

The question asked:
"What was used in the 1973 FA Cup Final and never used again?"

The answer was of course an Orange Ball, probably most famously used in this country for England's finest hour, our 1966 4-2 World Cup Final victory over West Germany at Wembley!

Congratulations to MikeyGamst who was the first to correctly get this.

Do you have any trivia questions you would like to put to everyone? If so contact me via e-mail at this address blackburn@vitalfootball.co.uk and I`ll get Vital Football Members pondering over your teaser…

No worries dude, fair enough. Wasn't really expecting much of a turnout, so wasn't overly disappointed. It at least gave me the chance to head out for a few jars a little earlier than planed, so every cloud... ... lol :)
