Memories of the good ole days.

Really nice photo's le god cuervo thank's,I used to love standing next to the away fan's when they was given that corner bit between stratton bank and the southside,those were the day's when it was propper football ground's,anyone remember the old den on cold blow lane,the away fan's was situated in that corner with the flood light pylon.I really miss those kind of days.

You just can't beat the old style ground's unlike today's souless stadiums.

Yep. That end of Shrivvy was where it was at. Me, Arriba and all the other lads we used to go with were there every week steaming around. I remember when my season ticket used to cost a mere 60

I only remember Hoddle playing, I stewarded the game that day and remember it was a great crowd of nearly 14,000 paying homage to the great servant Kevin "Jimmy Saville" Morris. He was a top bloke, met him many many times, a real character.
