Thinking about Saturdays game against Bristol City.

BIGE Should appreciate this, amongst others.

A good few years ago, when I was a callow youth, I went to college in Bristol, or Brizzle as the locals call it. Being away from my beloved Leeds, and in those days the only live football on TV was the FA Cup Final, I was deprived of football. So, I used to watch Bristol City one week then Rovers the next.

One day City announced that they were going to play a testimonial game for John Atyeo, (too long to explain who he was, so Google him) and to my delight the opponents would be LEEDS UNITED! Imagine my delight.

Of course I went in all my Leeds regalia (actually it was a scarf) . I think I was the only Leeds supporter there. I still have the program and wondered how much it would now be worth after so long, so looked on eBay. Β£0.79! Seventy nine pence! It was going to cost over 7 quid just to post it to someone.

Anyway, Leeds duly turned up and the attendance was 17,425. Before the game Jackie Charlton and Norman Hunter ran round the pitch with the Jules Rimet Trophy, which England had won earlier that year, yes, this was all in 1966.

The Leeds team that day was,
1.Sprake, 2.Reaney 3.Bell 4.Greenhoff 5.Charlton 6.Hunter 7.O'Grady 8.Lorimer 9.Madeley. 10. Giles. 11.Johanneson. Subs. Harvey, Lumsden, Cooper (Liam's Dad
πŸ˜‰) Bates, Storrie and Eddie Gray.

Needless to say we won 4-2. Similar score on Saturday would be good, but better without the 2 conceded.

PS. Do Bristol City sponsor Emma?

Just wondering.

Wonderful memory Tewit! What a lineup and the World Cup as well!

Today in his press conference he talked a lot about the importance of fans and how much time he has for the real fans and how important they are. He said that most parts of the game have become commercialized and it has had a negative effect. The only part of the game less effected is the true fan. He described it really well as the fan behind the goal who screams to support the team even though they can’t see everything!

I think he was talking about you Tewit!

At college in 1966? You are experienced and mature eh? (old git) πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ˜‰.

He is like a fine wine Al atleastvhis eye sight is fine emma got a mention again I see great memories from that previous game the only one that sticks in my mind was the Wednesday afternoon cup defeat in 74.

Oi, watch it!

As BIGE, myself, and I suspect several others on here know, we are just like fine mature wines.

Better with age. πŸ˜„ 🍷!

AL, hope you and everybody on here last long enough to get there. Then you can bore all the "youngsters" about how good things were in "your time".

Just hope those good times are just round the corner. With Marcelo with us I know they will be.

Then again Emma, Emmma, Emmmma, EMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMA

'twas only meant in jest sir, I'm no spring chicken myself, more the fine wine type, I reckon you're probably about 7-8 years older than me πŸ™ƒπŸ™‚πŸ™ƒ.

07 Mar 2019 19:23:30
I know AL. Suspected you were from the fine wine era!

Enjoy your posts, keep them coming. Think there are a lot more closet "fine wine types" out there.

Spytacus, at your age, good you’re still able to use your tablet! Tewit is more abacus and slide rule!

Spanish. I very nearly posted that I didn't come on here to be insulted.

But knew somebody would only reply "Where do you normally go? "

Boom, boom!

I'm here all week.

08 Mar 2019 13:37:08
Spanish. Shows my age tablets = pills.

08 Mar 2019 19:36:16
Spytacus. your right about tablets = pills

Got a few more "fine wine" words and what they meant.

Mobile = having a car, being able to get about.

Gay = happy, carefree, jovial.

Bad = not good.

Pin and chip = used to join things together and fried spud slices

Tweet = noise a bird makes

Spam = what you put in your sandwiches.

That's enough. I'm off to make a Spam sandwich now. 🀀🀀🀀
