Notes

It is being argued by Graham Taylor that refereeing decision unfairly determined the result of the Cup final.I agree, but with regard to the referee whose dismissal of the Watford captain Rostron, cost him his place at Wembley,rather then John Hunting’s acceptance of Gray’s critical second goal.There is no comparison between this incident and Lofthouse, of Bolton Wanderers, barging Gregg, of Manchester United, in the back in the 1958 final.Watching the match, the TV, and then still pictures, I am convinced it was the uncertain Sherwood’s bad luck in a legitimate challenge.He was groping backwards above his head for Steven’s cross, which was never in his grasp, as Gray took off to attempt to head: the collision was legal.Whether Sherwood was Knocked, or the ball came off Gray’s head or shoulder, is debatable, yet I am convinced that Gray was attempting to play the ball within his rights.(THE TIMES MONDAY MAY 21 1984)
