Cambridge v Cardiff City Commentary 1999

On 28th december 1999, Cardiff City travelled to Cambridge United for an important league match . Standing amongst the City fans on the terrace, I happened to be making a commentary of the game for a website. It turned out to be one of the most memorable matches in years, as City were left with 8 men on the hour after referee David Elleray showed three red cards.

As time went on, the crowd became more and more frenzied. Despite some Motson-clichees and a large dose of hyperbole, these recordings give a good flavour of that amazing day.

There are two mp3 files. the first contains the 3rd sending off, and the final 10 minutes of frantic defending. Download Highlights MP3 (Right-click, save target as..)

The second MP3 clip features the whole last half hour of the game as it builds to its climax.
