The first time is always the sweetest, as Osgood and co. triumphed over treble chasing Leeds United after the two teams had battled it out for over 240 minutes of absorbing football.

After a convincing run, which saw the Blues brush aside the challenges of Birmingham, Burnley, Crystal Palace, QPR and Watford, amassing an impressive 21 goals in 6 games, Dave Sexton's side went into the final full of confidence that Leeds would be added to their list.

On a sand-covered Wembley pitch, both sides produced a game oozing with bright attacking football, yet it was two defensive errors that opened the scoring. Jack Charlton headed Leeds in front, when the ball bounced awkwardly to evade a goal-line clearance, but Peter Houseman duly took advantage of the conditions when his long range attempt slipped past Sprake in the Leeds goal before the interval.

Leeds looked to have sealed the victory when Mick Jones drilled in an 84th minute goal. But not to be denied, the ever resilient Blues fought back to equalise with only minutes remaining when Ian Hutchinson stole in with a fine equalising header. Extra time failed to find a winner, and to Old Trafford they went.

In a physical encounter, Leeds once again took the lead midway through the first half via the boot of Jones. The game ebbed and flowed, and the Blues had to wait until the 78th minute before they were back on level terms, when Peter Osgood rose to head home. The game once again entered extra time, but David Webb upset the pattern of the final, much to the delight of all Blues, when he forced the ball over the line from an Ian Hutchinson long throw. It was the first time Chelsea had been in the lead - and that's how it remained!

Chelsea's first FA Cup triumph!

Now you can relive it over again in this specially produced programme featuring extended highlights of the first match and the full 120 minutes of the Old Trafford replay.

Important Information on PAL Region 0 DVD compatibility.
PAL Region 0 is now the most popular format sold by Green Umbrella. It ignores the original Region Coding designed for DVDs. If you own a multi-region DVD player (i.e. one which will play any Region of DVD) AND a television which can receive the PAL signal then this DVD will function correctly.

To the best of our knowledge (although we accept no responsibility for the accuracy of this information, and would thoroughly recommend that if you are in any doubt you consult your electrical retailer for advice before making a purchase) this PAL Region 0 DVD is designed to function in the following PAL TV countries:

Abu Dhabi, Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Angola, Argentina, Ascension Island, Australia, Austria, Azores, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bosnia Herzegovina, Botswana, Brunei, Cameroon, Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Cayman Islands, China (Peoples Republic), Christmas Island, Cook Island, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dubai, Easter Island, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Falkland Islands, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Gambia, Gaza & West Bank, Germany, Ghana, Gibraltar, Greece, Greenland, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Holland, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lesotho, Liberia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macao, Macedonia, Madeira, Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Malta, Montenegro, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norfolk Island, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Sardinia, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Slovenia, Solomon Islands, Somalia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Swaziland, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Tanzania, Thailand, Tonga, Tristian Da Cunah, Turkey, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, UNITED KINGDOM, Vanuatu, Vatican City State, Yemen, Yugoslavia, Zambia, Zanzibar, and Zimbabwe.

NB. This DVD will NOT work in NTSC TV regions (such as United States & Canada) unless your DVD player can play Region 0 DVD's (ie it is multi-region) AND your TV can receive the PAL signal. If you are in any doubt please consult your electrical retailer before making a purchase.

However, although we offer no guarantees, some of our customers in USA and Canada have successfully played these DVD's on their PC (not TV) equipment. Again, if you are in any doubt please consult your electrical retailer before making a purchase.
