English FA Cup Finalists 1980 - 1989
During the 1980s two new names were added to the FA Cup, Coventry and Wimbledon while Queen's Park Rangers, Watford and Brighton all made their first appearances. Three finals in succession required replays between 1981 and 1983. Four times the cup went to London and three times it finished on Merseyside. The decade ended with an emotional triumph for Liverpool only weeks after the Hillsborough disaster in which 96 fans were crushed to death.
