- Unsatisfactory Euro Result: 8th April, 1981

I’m continuing my slow and unsteady slowing down of that fabulous batch of early 80s shows that surfaced over on JP Everyday a while back. This time it’s the 8th April, 1981 show. The name of the file had thus far led me to believe that this might have been from May, but a bit of checking based on results for the 1981 European Cup semi final show that this is definitely from April. Peel bemoans the poor Euro result near the start of the program, referring to the 0-0 home draw with Bayern in the first leg of the semi final. The reds did go on, however, to draw 1-1 in the away leg and then trounce Real Madrid 1-0 in the final. I feel a youtube moment coming on…
