1932: Another big game in the 1930s; in the FA Cup 4th Round, Arsenal 4 Argyle 2. The Pilgrims had beaten Manchester United in the previous round, and had achieved their best ever victory seven days earlier, an 8-1 thrashing of Millwall, witnessed by Arsenal's famous manager, Herbert Chapman. With the team doing well in tier 2, nearly 10,000 excited fans made the pilgrimage on five excursion trains and dozens of coaches in the hope of a major upset. It was the golden age in Arsenal's history; almost all their team were internationals. There's a fascinating newspaper report in GoS's "Memorable Matches" (... more on GoS).

1974: League Cup semi-final (1st leg) - Argyle 1 Manchester City 1. After magnificent wins at Burnley, QPR and Birmingham (all top-flight clubs), Argyle found themselves one step from a cup final for only the second time in their history. This was the 1970s, a time of industrial strife, and the mid-week tie was moved to an afternoon kick-off because of the power crisis. To everyone's surprise, over 30,000 found their way to Home Park rather than their workplace.
