That was the first time I ever visited Cambridge, took the train from Liverpool St along with about another 100 Town fans, there were loads of Town fans there that day, almost half of the 3,150 crowd. We totally outplayed them but could only scramble a draw in the end. They had Tom Finney playing for them that day, yes not that one, but I bet Reg saw the original Tom Finney play Smiley

I remember the Preston Plumber... along with Sir Stanley... Nat Lofthouse, Lion of Vienna, and I'd put Jimmy Armfield in that company. As a kid these were role models, not only great players, but great sportsmen. In a Town context Maurice Owen was cut from the same cloth, and I always had time for Gentleman John Atyeo, despite the City connection.

I like the way Preston have an image of Tom in their seating....

A similar thing for Sir Don would be excellent if Swindon ever redevelop any of the stands.

Having a read up pre game on the Cambridge forum, they seem very confident of at least not losing against us with several saying they will easily beat us.

Quote
First game I'll be able to get to since Swindon away. As far as I'm concerned we just wiped the floor with this lot 2-0 at theirs, without even needing to start a recognised striker. Home advantage bound to double it, so 4-0 to the mighty U's.

Feeling a 4-0 win and Swindon going off crying even more than they did in the Hoddle days.

Would those commentas about Hoddle be from the same fans that sung "we want football" towards John Beck when we absolutely thrashed them there 3-0 in the FA cup in 92 when Beck had them playing football antithesis.

1992 when the mullet was king.

Was at that cup game.
Calderwood scored when concussed.
Not the first time he had suffered a knock out for the cause either.

I see as well that Cambridge have 2 forwards out for the rest of the season this week in Alex Jones and George Maris and Jabo Ibehre only returning to training this week so could be doubtful too.

Especially when they are actually on a pretty shit run too. You have to wonder where such optimism comes from especially when they are playing a team in equal 9th place in the league who havent lost in 6 matches and only 2 defeats in 1 games.

Bit of a contrast with the weather from last time.
One of the coldest away days to people walking around in shorts.
The amount of wobbling cellulite on display is not good though.

Going to be a long sweaty walk back to the station.
