Saturday 9 April 1988

Today was FA Cup Semi Finals Day as well as Grand National Day.

As was usual (and still is) I backed a horse that managed to get round in one piece (yay!) but did not trouble the places (boo!).

In semi-final news, at Hillsborough, Liverpool defeated Nottingham Forest by two John Aldridge goals to one of the Nigel Clough variety.  Meanwhile, down at White Hart Lane, ‘plucky’ Wimbledon came from behind to see off Luton Town, with goals from John Fashanu (penalty) and Dennis Wise answering Mick Harford’s opener.

The final on 14 May was going to be the mother of all clashes of styles.
