'If It's Football, It's Vital'

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…

Sorry couldnt make it yeaterday mate... it was quiet all day up until 5!!! then it went mental till 9!!!!
MikeyGamst
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 :)
Hughes Da Man
definitely.... I managed to get out about 9 so there were a few cheeky corona's in play by half nine.... did anyone see the Morecambe v Exter game?? was v entertaining??? good centre back names for Morecambe as well... Bentley and Blackburn.
MikeyGamst
I didn't see the game, I genuinely meant to watch it but for whatever reason forgot! I heard it was highly entertaining as you say mate, ahh good old Bentley and Blackburn, don't get much better than that do they :)
