As has been pointed out, it wasn't Manyew that did that 

 

They were blackmailed by the FA into pulling out to bolster the fatuous (and failed) bid for the World Cup in the mistaken belief Septic Bladder would look favourably upon us 

I didn't know that. So the suits at the FA did the dirty on their own competition. Why am I not surprised?

At least it will put that old Scunthorpe chestnut to bed. 

It was a good honest giant killing by Scunthorpe in front of 38,000 when the FA cup meant something and no question of fielding a weakened team. Kevin Keegan was in the Scunthorpe side.

The Owls were in the old first division then (1970) but not for long as they were relegated that season. The Iron's got knocked out in the next round by Swindon.
