A-list A-frames - Torquay United

Shame to read of the problems at Torquay United in the new WSC.

Four years after the club lost its their Football League status, it must be hard for Gulls fans to remember better days.

But who could forget the late-80's League Cup tussle versus Tottenham and the totally brilliant Plainmoor A-frames?

Or the Play-Off penalty shoot-out at Wembley in 1991?

Three things to note -

1 - Torquay's 2nd penalty (about 4:00) gets jammed behind the Wembley stanchion; fantastic!

2 - Blackpool's fifth penalty (about 7:30) is maybe the worst penalty you'll ever see.

3 - The old Wembley stanchions. Still beautiful after all these years...
