Editorial comments: Early evening? Exact time unknown. See the Daily Mail, 8 May 1978: "Poor Mrs Thatcher. After looking very much at home at Wembley and being delighted that the Blues won, her afternoon ended in tatters. After the Cup Final she was asked on Radio 2 who she considered Man of the Match. Without hesitation she replied: "The Ipswich number 10, Trevor Whymark". Erring officials had forgotten to point out to her that although Whymark was in the programme, injury had kept him out of the team. But the actual number 10, David Geddis, did play a blinder".
