Charlie George's rifling long-range winner against Liverpool in extra time of the 1971 Double-clinching FA Cup final. Made all the better by the fact that I was standing on the terraces at Wembley with my Dad, who had played in the Amateur Cup Final himself for Barnet in his prime, wearing a truly "remarkable" red and white gingham smock made specially for the occasion. That's me in the smock, not Dad.

When Dad died many years later, we piped in the commentary of that goal to the congregation in the crematorium. It seemed fitting.
