Non drying paint and smashed glasses convering the top of garden walls - The bane of all troublesome youth in the 70s and 80s.

Re: Remember Ibrox? Please leave slowly
Was really a need for a sign next to it saying
Don't look up to read this sign

I always understood the Ibrox disaster was due to people trying to get back onto the terraces after a late Rangers equaliser but apparently everyone was moving in the same direction i.e. Out of the stadium. and someone slipped.

Anyone know what happened to the 'Join the Junior Hammers' banner that was paraded around before ko every home game?

Re: Remember Ibrox? Please leave slowly
There was definitely one in the away end in the south bank. You could see it from the seats in the bottom of the west upper.

Cholo: non drying paint. definately had it in the Southbank. Got my green Harrington covered in silver paint, must've been 1971/72.

They should have 'Remember Upton Park? You've Been Shafted' signs above the stairs at the cess pit

Re: Remember Ibrox? Please leave slowly
I remember it well as it always struck me that one day there would a terrible accident on the North Bank with supporters falling down the stairs cos they were looking up to read the sign ...

Re: Remember Ibrox? Please leave slowly
Yes I remember this on the North Bank. Along with the signs warning of non-drying paint on the roof supports to discourage climbing.

cholo ~

Unless it was added later than my time, there was never any non-drying paint on the rafters to deter climbers in the North Bank

I remember on one occasion, we were at home to Chelsea. It really appeared at one point that Chelsea had actually "taken" the North bank with blue & white scarves waving everywhere

As it turned out, a lot of our mob had mugged off a bunch of chelsea fans on the way to the ground & used their scarves to lure the rest into the North Bank

By 3 o'clock there were lots of Chelsea scarves hanging from the rafters. Some were there for ages afterwards!

As it turned out it had been

The sign was definitely the north bank.

Re: Remember Ibrox? Please leave slowly
Takes me back. Can anyone confirm that the rafters at the back of the north bank had non-dying paint to deter would be climbers? I was told this but was always sceptical.

Re: Remember Ibrox? Please leave slowly
It was in the North Bank

Re: Remember Ibrox? Please leave slowly
It was definitely in the North - I never stood in the South and I remember it well (I assumed the 'x' was silent and had no idea what it meant!).

hammer205 ~

I nearly always went in the North Bank & unless my memory is playing tricks I'm sure it was there

I did go in the South Bank once or twice, usually if I arrived late (including the notorious South Bank 75 vs manu & wouldn't have been too much bothered about looking at signs that day!)

Re: Remember Ibrox? Please leave slowly
Thought this sign was in the old south bank that was replaced by Bobby Moore stand

Don't recall one in the North bank the seller states

Are you admitting that is actually yours?

The floor covering I mean.

Re: Remember Ibrox? Please leave slowly
Well, it seemed like a tunnel - you know where I mean.

Re: Remember Ibrox? Please leave slowly
When I was a nipper, at most games my feet never touched the ground going under the tunnel from the North Bank terrace to the concourse. A huge thrill then - scary as fuck now.

Si you ain't selling up are you mate ?

Yes, thought long and hard but decided it needed a new home

Re: Remember Ibrox? Please leave slowly
Out of all the games I went to I stood in the North Bank more than anywhere else
As a kid getting out of the ground especially when we played the big games(London derbys,Liverpool,Man Utd)) was I suppose some would say scary by today's standards.
There were always big lumps that looked out for the kids.That was all part of the day out.
