    I love the fact that some of us oldies probably can't remember what they did last Tuesday but can remember where they brought and how much they paid for a Pringle back in 1983. it is also the little things that come back in our minds ,probably because they have never gone away ,like Bluehaze and the Wigan result,I remember being at that newcastle game but I have no memories of losing to wigan next game but to Bluehaze I suspect it is like it happened yeterday. The result after the result for some strange reason I always remember is a game we played after the very infamous Palace cup game back in 75-76 ,2 nil down 2-2 to then lose 3-2 ,Kung fu kicks and 50,000 fans ,Jimmy hill on match of the day ,we all know the game .On the Monday at school my friends all asked were you there and I was like no ,missed it ,couldn't go etc but I am going this Wednesday ,hull city at home and they were like wow ! So some 4 days later after the Palace game off I head to London thinking this is going to be brilliant ,can't wait to see another King fu kick etc and to tell my school mates. The game was a 0 0 draw,absolute rubbish watched by 10,000 fans ,I still wonder to this day where the other 40,000 fans went to ?

    HI RIchard P I have never seen that footage ,so many thanks ! Went to the game ,never got in the away end but was down the side near the home end.My real memory was getting back to Guildford and facing an 8 mile walk home as there were no buses running so I set off to hitch hike it,thinking i am bound to get a lift! Many many freezing hours later I walked through the door a real grumpy sod ....the things we did for our club !

    Spot on Chi ,my youth in one sentence ,to be fair I would need to add a bit of music to the sentence but spot on ,the only sad thing to add is nothing has changed ,football ,CFC ,good music and a bad dress sense !

    RIP Ray Wilkins

    What a sad sad day I was at white hart lane when he first captained the team in the relegation battle against that lot,I was at the 2 2 game v Plymouth when he scored one of the best goals I have seen and I was gutted when we had to sell him .I think non CFC fans don't realise as a 18 year old how good he really was because he was that good.... RIP Ray and I'm thinking of you and your family at this very sad time

    Met him a few times ,the first as a 10 /11 year old .I was lost for words standing in front of the real life Ossie ,I can’t remember what I said and what he said. I do know though that he was a star in my eyes then and is still one now RIP
  9. On the subject of presents in hindsight the strangest one i got was a Chelsea tie ,it is a cracking tie but I have never been sure, as a 12 year old what I was supposed to wear it with and indeed wear it to !!

    I love every picture of Ossie as much now as I did as a nipper !
  11. Sorry Boyne I just noticed you actually mentioned Hollins ,I was being a bit thick there !
  12. John Hollins must have played late 60,s 70,s and early 80,s ..... That's me done

    Hi Ewell ,I don't know his name but wasn't he the 50 / 50 lottery ticket seller who you saw at the bottom of the steps having just entered the shed via the white wall entrance ? Or is time playing tricks with me !

    Kerry Dixon.

    Cheers RIchard P for the Man U away footage ,that was my first time at Old Trafford ,I think I have done over 60 different away grounds with CFC but to be honest that night at Old Trafford was the only real time I have ever come up the steps and into a ground for the first time and gone wow impressive ! Old Trafford mid week under lights ,packed Stratford end etc was something special to be fair. The fact we had 1000's up there was just typical of our superb support and to nick it with a last minute winner made it all the more special. The old shudder watching that footage was seeing Darren Wood running around like a headless chicken ,heh Ho he did his bit I guess ?!?!

    Kerry Dixon.

    Cheers Harrow's finest for the update – good read and glad you had a goodnight King Kerry is spot on , for the goal at Highbury alone I remember being at the Bridge for a Alex Stewart's testimonial or some sort of charity cricket game. The only parts of the ground open were the west stand lower and the east lower so we are all sitting there in the west lower ,one Sunday chatting about this that and nothing at all watching the cricket at the Bridge ( I missed the one in the 80’s when Botham played) when all of a sudden I spot Kerry in his full whites and cricket pads come up the tunnel and sit in the home dug out. I have no idea what came over me but all of a sudden I got up and went off without a word to my mates and proceeded to walk left across the west stand ,past the odd lazing steward in the MHL ,down the front of the east stand and I plonked by arse down in the dugout next to a rather surprised Kerry Dixon . Bless him he was a good as gold ,we had a chat, he signed my programme and I said cheers ,wished him all the best ,got up and made my way back to my mates The bloke is a Legend
