The game, on May 5, 1973, saw the red and white army take over London after a long journey from the North.
You travelled by train, coach and car to fly your flag for the lads - and it was well worth the trip.

While Don Revie’s Leeds were expected to walk all over Bob Stokoe’s side, but it was a strike from Ian Porterfield that saved the day, and sealed the match in the club’s history.
And who could forget keeper Jimmy Montgomery’s legendary double save, which was almost as important as the winning goal.
Surely, it was one of the most exciting times to be a Sunderland fan.
Flick through our picture gallery above to relive the momentous day - and see if you can spot yourself in the crowd.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for our look-back at the team’s return home. They arrived back in Sunderland as heroes.
