Terry Gibson: How the Crazy Gang won the FA Cup

HELLO Big Interview listeners! Well, you’ve been very patient, so here it is: Part Two of my Big Interview with Terry Gibson.

And, I promise, it is well worth the wait. If you remember, at the end of Part One we left Terry after he had cut short an unfulfilling spell at Manchester United and signed for Wimbledon. We’ll pick up the story there, as Terry takes you inside that club and introduces you to the Crazy Gang.

The chances are you’ll have heard of them, but Terry takes us beyond the headlines and describes a group of rival factions who shared a dressing room. I found that fascinating but there was a happy ending, with Wimbledon going on to lift the 1988 FA Cup. Terry talks brilliantly about that cup run and the final against Liverpool.

I enjoy speaking to Terry and consider him a friend, but that’s not why I wanted him on the show. He also has a shrewd, brilliantly analytical football mind – just listen to how he takes clubs in England to task over their reliance on financial might instead of effective scouting.

This was fun to record and, I’m sure, will be entertaining to listen to. My conversation with Terry is free, with this month’s Big Interview with Roberto Di Matteo available exclusively at patreon.com/grahamhunter.
