Couldn't attend enough games to warrant a season ticket and the only other way to get in, in those days, was to queue on the day.

I can remember joining a queue adjacent to the car park at 10.30 in the morning. A long wait but lots of good banter and we could watch the players arriving for the match. More important was that 9 times out of 10 we saw a decent match with some excellent football. Happy days!

Can remember trying to be one of the first in the north bank so I could stand on that extra big concrete step nearer to the back of the stand.

The players still gave a shit though Eggy, as they probably relied on their England bonuses for a decent lifestyle.

Bit hard when you're earning 150k a week already to give a monkeys I suppose.

Sorry I thought the thread was Match OF THE Day. As you were!

Most of the matches were whoever were playing Liverpool or Manchester United. They spent an awful lot of time focussing on the all standing Kop. You could see then the avalanches of people in that terrace as tossers pushed their way in from the back. I'll bet they wouldn't glorify them now after what happened at the Heysel and Hillsborough.

Re: Match day in the late 60's and 70's
Eggy you're forgetting that in the 70s only 16 nations were in the WC Finals competition. It's now 32 so it's no surprise that England qualifies these days.

Were they still selling Wagon Wheels when Graham Taylor was picking Carlton Palmer, Andy Sinton & Keith Curle?

Re: Match day in the late 60's and 70's
Grump how about the 70's when we made it to only one of three world cups?

England being shit is nothing to do with modern football we've been shot dor decades

Re: Match day in the late 60's and 70's
Only have to watch England to see how shit modern football has become!

And football was dead the second they stopped selling Wagon Wheels over UP.

I hear that when they first started selling peanuts your great granddad was still hanging around the Memorial Ground moaning about the move and how modern football was shit.
