TSV Pennant Three report

In 2016, after 46 years of membership, a referendum resulted in 51.9% voting in favour of leaving the European Union which was scheduled to take place at the end of March 2019. Back in January 1973 Great Britain entered the Common Market to a fanfare of celebrations which included a football match.  

 

Hosted at Wembley Stadium, the Common Market’s newest members (Great Britain, Ireland and Denmark) faced the existing six member countries (Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands and West Germany) in game billed as “The Three v The Six”.

Bobby Moore's Wembley Appearances ...

by Roger Hillier

Bobby’s most memorable Wembley captaincies include:

 

•  1964 FA Cup Final

•  1965’s European Cup Winners’ Cup Final

•  1966 World Cup final

•  1973 England v Italy (Bobby’s final England game)

With the BREXIT deadline now put on hold, it's a timely reminder of a special international appearance by Bobby Moore. During his West Ham United career, Wembley Stadium must have seemed like his second home as he played 43 England internationals and 2 West Ham United matches at the home of English football.  

 

Post West Ham he also featured in Fulham’s 1975 FA Cup final eleven against his former teammates. But Moore also stepped out onto the Wembley turf a 47th time. This often forgotten game was the 1973 Common Market match held to celebrate Great Britain joining the European Economic Community.

THE THREE

THE SIX

It is unlikely that, if and when BREXIT finally arrives it will be celebrated with another international match to mark Great Britain's exit. So no “The One v The Twenty Seven”.

 

In the January 1973 international game Bobby Moore wore the number six shirt for 'The Three'. Despite Moore being England’s captain at the time, surprisingly he didn’t captain the side. Manager Alf Ramsey passed this honour to Bobby Charlton whose England international career had ended three years earlier.

 

In a game that was widely reported at the time, 'The Three' won 2-0. The Daily Telegraph’s match report described Moore’s performance as “Moore calmly marshalling the Three defence in his World Cup winning style”.

Bobby Moore’s Wembley Appearances

The first of Bobby Moore’s 47 Wembley appearances was in November 1962 when he stepped out for his eighth England international, England versus Wales. And ended 13 years later as a member of Fulham’s 1975 FA Cup final side.

 

To summarise, the 47 matches cover:

Wembley Captaincy

In 39 of his 47 Wembley matches, Bobby Moore captained the side. This includes 37 times for the England national side and the two West Ham United matches (1964 FA Cup and 1965 European Cup Winners’ Cup finals).

 

His first Wembley captaincy was against Preston North End in the 1964 FA Cup final. And four days later on May 6, Bobby returned to Wembley to lead the England side for the first time at the Twin Towers. In the friendly against Uruguay, Moore's West Ham United and England teammate Johnny Byrne scored both goals to secure a 2-1 win for the Three Lions.

Another memorable moment for the West Ham and England captain will be his final England match.  

 

After manager, Alf Ramsey, had dropped Bobby for the friendly against Austria (September 1973) and the World Cup qualifier draw to Poland (October 1973), Bobby was recalled for a record setting 108th England international appearance in the home defeat to Italy on November 14, 1973.

 

The Italian game was Bobby’s 90th international as England’s captain, equalling Billy Wright’s record.

West Ham United win the World Cup Final. A hat-trick by Hammers' Geoff Hurst and another from teammate Martin Peters gives the Three Lions victory at Wembley.  

Four months after the Italy international Bobby Moore left the Hammers to join Second Division Fulham on March 14, 1974. In the twilight of his playing career, no one would have anticipated a return to Wembley.

 

But this is what happened as Fulham surpassed expectations to reach 1975’s FA Cup final.  Unfortunately for Bobby there was no icing on the cake, as his final Wembley appearance as a professional player ended with West Ham beating Fulham 2-0.
