Remembering the good old days and what we got up to.
Playing subbueto on the dining room table was entertaining!

It was new and fun at the time and I used to get my teams from Terry Warner Sports!

Goalkeeper always went to ground to early. I preferred striker.

The simple things like you could have a face to face conversation. These days people are glued to their smartphones.

Exactly that, it's quite rare now to pass a young person in the street who isn't looking at their left or right hand!

For balance, it might be worth running a parallel thread on what wasn't so great about the 70s.

A year in the hole had taken its toll
When I took a good look at me
And what a surprise
The scope of my eyes could only see black
And I remember someone who was taking them two by two
And lately I'd become the one who'd have laughed at you too!

The 70s was ace, but then again I was under 10 years old.

I understand that there were strikes, power cuts and stuff like that.

Yes you're right the 70's has stikes and power cuts, petrol queuing and Swindon had to play Pompey in a cup game midweek in the winter at 2pm as they wouldn't allowed to have the floodlights on

Hose pipe bans, abysmal road surfaces, Yorkshire Ripper, problems in the Middle East, aeroplane hijackings, rubbish England football team and failing to qualify for World Cups, flares, platform shoes, long hair - The list is endless!
