WHO Poll
Q: 2022 Summer Transfer Window - How many 1st team players will we sign before August 6th
a. None as Sullivan will wait until the last week before he gets his scattergun out the cupboard
b. A couple of freebies paraded as superstars, usual hype to follow
c. I'm more optimistic as surely they know we need to strengthen, 3-4 with decent money spent.
d. Who gives a toss as we have a great squad already, I've already ordered the new replica kit, socks and all and can't wait to wear it at our first game, down the pub of course, I bleed claret & blue

apparently a shit/unhappy year?


fucking brilliant for me- got me a suzuki AP50 ( red) found a couple of pubs where we could drink at 28P a pint; two or three birds on the go and made my transition from piunk music to the likes of Evelyn Champagne King - shame; Sylvestre- Might Real and getting into nightclubs where birds smelt nice as opposed to spat at you in punk clubs...

and I had three holidays in bournemouth

fucking superb year for me

We played Millwall in a league game for the first time in years. Beat them 3-0, a very lively day on both sides of the river.

Darkness on the Edge of Town was released.

The year of AC/DC releasing Powerage and If you want blood.

Best studio and best live album in the same year? Doesn't get better than that!

I started school that year so can't remember too much.

It seems despite the state of the country at the time people were able to thoroughly enjoy themselves!

1978. I shot ONJ at The Intercontinental on Park Lane. She was stunning. Got drunk in the free bar afterwards with a couple of other photographers I knew. Nicked a life size cardboard cut out of ONJ, got it stuck in the revolving doors of the hotel, doorman helped us get it free then we drove off down Park Lane with ONJ sticking out of the sunroof of my mates VW beetle.

Great year for music and was the summer after I started at secondary school and Grease was the hit film of the year... There were a lot of girls emulating ONJ with very tight trousers!!!

Bought my first record Roxanne by the Police and outlandos d'amour my first lp...

Got into the mod scene in 78 and still into it now so a pretty special year for me.

Re: 1978
Was a brilliant year for me, I was born in the December.

Mind you, I wasn’t due to be born until Feb 1979 - so maybe it wasn’t so great at first

First time I've thought about it for years, but I'm glad to see the hotel is still there - https://www.britanniahotels.com/hotels/the-norbreck-castle-hotel

Re: 1978
I was six. Mum, Dad and me went on holiday to Blackpool, staying at the Norbreck Castle Hotel. Also Ron (one of Dad's fellow cabbie mates) and his bird Flo came along (she later dumped him when he refused to leave his Mum behind - he eventually fell out with the taxi trade and after his old lady passed away he became a bit fat shut-in that was eventually found very dead in an armchair after the neighbours called the police).

Can't say I remember all that much but there's a photo of me in the Pleasure Beach wearing a black Harrington and a Hulk mask.
