  1. Most hated opposition

    West Ham, because of the grief they gave us in the early 70's, both at The Bridge on occasions & Upton Park. Also having to travel back by train to Leigh on Sea, when en route they always had gangs roaming the platform at Barking & Mile End, looking on the Tube & Train for fans of other clubs.

    That worked well, if memory serves me correct there were over 300 arrests that day. Probably didn't help that the Club gave Tottenham the whole of The North End Road terraces, and they had around 10,000 there on the day?.

    R.I.P Peter, taken from us far to soon. Remember the FA Cup game at Orient, when we lost 3-2. If memory serves me right, there was a pitch invasion & DH remonstrated with him about his performance?.

    That pic looks like he had a 'decent one' to match his name!

    Arsenal under Johnny Hoys leadership, in my opinion had their best days between 1969-73. It wasn't until 75-76 onwards, when both us and Tottenham went into the North Bank with numbers, and took it on more than one occasion. West Ham were the first London team to have a mob in both ends, their South Bank one being the haunt of the 'Mile End' men. I'd say West Ham because they were more consistent over the years, no doubt. Lets be honest, in the 70's no-one really looked forward to going to Upton park?. Only time I saw us having a good go at their North Bank was in 71, a good mob from Stockwell, which has been documented on here before. And as the years progressed, they caused more battles in The Shed, than Arsenal did?.

    First time I saw our fans wearing the white Butcher coats in numbers, was at Tottenham in the League cup semi 2nd Leg in Jan 72.

    Slightly off topic, but after the game did the Police keep our fans in for several minutes until the queues to Wembley park eased?. Or just let us leave, and wander up to the station unaided?.

    Jenas still hasn't got over us beating them in the F.A. Cup Semi Final. Remember after he started rowing with Shearer in the studio, and looked like he was gonna cry!.

    Was in the West Stand for that match, watched Pat Nevin collect the ball in our half, then went on a run, must have dribbled past 6 players before scoring one of the best individual goals I've seen at The Bridge.

    Irish S*** I recall?.

    Anyone know what the away clubs allocation will be when playing Spurs at Wembley?. Would presume around 7-8,000, allowing for however they segregate it?. Also be interesting if any local pubs are designated for 'away' fans there.

    Remember we rented a decent sized colour TV in 1980, for £12 per month. Brought a Beta ( doh! ) Video in 82/83 for £285!.
