Going back, to a season just before then.... my mind wanders to 82, which ended up with the notorious Newport relegation game, when many (including some on here) got a free night's accommodation courtesy of Heddlu de Cymru.

The game which sticks was at Elm Park in Feb.... the crowd was 4,100 and there were 41 arrests.  It ended 1-1, it was Ken Beamish's only start...  John Trollope fielded a side where 8 players came through the youth system.  In the Reading XI were Kerry Dixon and Neil Webb, both of whom went on to play for Engand.

Yes, remember the police moaning on the news that they were still chucking town fans out of Newport on the following day.

Was at that Reading game. Beamish missed an open goal.
A Blackburn supporting mate said that he was known for missing sitters during his time there.

There should be a 1681 club reunion.  Smiley
Have to take off the 1 on the end as my dad is no longer with us, but his ashes are under the goal at the Town End so that will count I guess Smiley

I remember that game quite well, I was stood with Rob Hartley (200,000 consecutive Town games etc etc or something like that!) the whole game.

I was drinking in a social club when those Cobblers fans came in - lost me pint as well. Mind you, they got it back in spades when we went there under Macari.
Horrible set of fans them Cobblers, my mate Sid Sellars had a glass smashed in his face while playing pool when it kicked off in the clubhouse.

We do have a bit of history with Cobblers fans, the smashed up the CGH as well the season before at the end of the season game when they thrashed us 5-1, Bob Champion rode Aldaniti(I think) round the pitch before that match too.

Rob is a good lad, I have known him since I was about 16 and he was around 14.

That train window smash was caused by another train going past with a door open. If that had happened now Iíd have thought a bomb had gone off!

Like you, I used to go to nearly every game in those days, but I honestly canít remember much about any of them. I was generally well pissed up mind.

Only went to have a game of pool.
Met up with Sid this season simply walking through Town.
Carlisle and the Burnley specials were memorable.

I haven't seen Sid for about 15 years he still has the scar on his face from the bottle smash.

Loved the old BR specials, I remember going the ones to Wrexham, Carlisle, Burnley, Liverpool, Rovers, Shitty and Crystal Palace for the play off in 89 when it was delayed and we all missed almost all the first half but arriived just in time to see Ian Wright score the 2nd.

I can remember the specials to Liverpool, Blackpool, Wimbledon, Torquay, Slave Trade Central and Aldershot. They were always messy.

Weirdly I watched Danny Dyer's real Football Factories on Netflix yesterday and Cass Pennant was talking about those persil vouchers. Its how West Ham's 'ICF' firm came to fruition.
