In 1966 I was a young lad working in a Bank in Wigmore St. London W1.

On the day of the match, the Bank closed at 12.00 and I made my way to Baker Street Station for my journey back to Stanmore (Bakerloo Line)

I remember passing through Wembley Park Station at about 1O'clock I was amazed that so few spectators were on the train and also on the platform. I would estimate no more than 20 people.

Knowing the total crowd was in excess of 100,000 I have always found it surprising that so few people were around, just 2 hours before the start of the match.

I can't imagine it being like that if the match was being held today
