1905 FA CUP FINAL (Aston Villa-Newcastle): Picture postcard of Crystal palace (where the match was played) sent on the day of the match from London to Newcastle by a Newcastle fan with text “The Great Game is over & worse luck United are down – I’m afraid they were fairly beaten too – no doubt Villas previous Cup contests helped them a lot today – they seemed to have all the needful “dash” & that first goal decided the game – Lawrence was nervous – Appleyard too slow – but its not fair to pull them to pieces they played like Lions – but with less of the usual deadly finish to their shots”, fine and very rare
