I didn't do the Wrexham special but we had many others back then, but more so in the 80s, Liverpool, Reading, Shitty, Rovers, Burnley, Carlisle, Crystal Palace, Newport and many others, great times without rose tinted specs at all, a better time all round IMO.

I find those who suggest everything is viewed back then as being "rose tinted specs" are those that weren't there or not old enough to understand or just  plain jealous.

It was, but all things Boardroom were a completely closed shop to fans. Those in charge were still skimming money from gate receipts and, no doubt, elsewhere as well.

Oh that was a given, even right up to the Macari days when programme sales were never reported fully, I have heard a few tales from ex players about half time draws and MotM pay outs from the sales.

Yet in those days we regularly had enough money to actually pay for transfer fees for players. So much more money sloshing around now but, seemingly, not enough for paying fees. All goes on wages I suppose.

It's what I expect from my life
It's like a wire
That holds me back down to the ground
Oh, I hear you say
That is the way of the world
No, hear what I say
I wanna do so much in my way

Same as JJ, great memories taking 8000 to Arsenal & Wolves the same season and the special trains were something never to witnessed again and a case of if you weren't around you've missed out
