1982 FA Cup Semi Final: QPR v West Brom – Video

Since this weekend features the semi-finals of the FA Cup, I thought it’d be interesting to take a trip down memory lane to see what a FA Cup semi-final from 1982 was like featuring two teams that in today’s age would seem like unlikely participants at this stage in the tournament.

Queens Park Rangers played West Bromwich Albion in the 1981-82 semi-final. The match was played at Arsenal’s Highbury Stadium on a beautiful spring day.

As usual, there are several interesting observations that can be drawn from this broadcast from the opening by Jimmy Hill of Match Of The Day and to the match itself.

Please share your observations of what you found interesting from the match and the broadcast in the comments section below.
