  1. To be honest, I thought the Geordies made as much noise as we did that day.
  2. Def wasn't the Leeds game in Aug 72. We got on the dog track for most of the game, there were loads more on it than what that pic shows. Also the clothes worn were from the 60's, & Old Bills uniforms as well. Not a pair of Braces, Doc Martens or turned up Levis in sight!
  3. That was in April 75, most of us got locked out. Had we all got in, the events on the pitch would have been a lot different from what actually happened. Fast forward to Aug 78, we filled the Park Lane end, which supposedly held 10,000.
  4. Yep, like many ex players loved his booze. Was a Taxi driver in Southend for a few years. He was a winger.
  5. It was the EUFA 2 legged Final in 74, when they got battered in Holland. Remember reading Bill Nicholson went onto the pitch at some stage, pleading with them to behave. Following evening or one after, recall watching local BBC News around 6.30pm & reporters were at Liverpool St when a load got off the train from Harwich. Everyone of them looked like they'd been in the ring with Mike Tyson.
  6. You got your wish this afternoon, after yet again they 'bottled' it at Burnley!.
  7. It was also rumoured his 'hampton' was like a Widerbeest's, & he could put 3 of the old tankard pint beer glasses ( empty! ) on it. Sigh, wish I do one!!.
  8. Too right chi blue, We will be leaving Leigh on Sea at mid-day, get to Baker St via Jubilee line from West Ham for 1.30pm. Now i'm ( ahem ) in my 'mature' years, ( soon be 62 ) prefer the luxury of the bar at The Sherlock Holmes hotel, about a mins walk from The Globe. Not crushed like sardines & drinking out of plastic glasses, with nice leather chairs to sit on ( snob! ). Onto Wembley to probably lose my voice (!) singing throughout, and enjoy the day yet again. ( Probably be warm enough to dig out one of my Harringtons, a bonus for the time of year ). Doubt i'll get home till gone 10pm, but what the hell eh?. Age is but a number??
  9. Bloke bottom left has got a hooter like the child catcher , in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!
  10. Only thing to be optimistic about & what is going to happen, is that it will be a mild day for the time of year instead of freezing cold. That's a bonus as means hopefully i'll be having less pee's!.
  11. Although not expecting us to win, like you it wouldn't surprise me if somehow we did. Probably the 1st Cup Final we've played at 'new' Wembley, when literally the whole country expects us to get tonked big time?. 'Stranger things have happened'.... Wigan beating City in 2013 cup final, 4 years ago Bradford coming back from 2 down to put 4 past us. Think i'll stop there.
  12. Me too. I wear a CFC pin badge on 1 lapel, & the prostrate cancer one on the other one.
  13. Funny how we get stuck in our ways. My youngest ( 33 ) & me going as well, a lot depends on the Weather. For me probably be Nike or NB trainers ( thick soles, keep my old feet warm! ), pair of Levi's, La Coste jumper ( over a thermal long sleeved t-shirt ) & prob a 3/4 length leather coat, as reckon once the evening sets in, will be too cold for wearing one of my Harringtons!. As for my son, what do 33 year olds know about fashion!!!!. ( I'm nearly 62, still got 2 pairs of Royal Brogues! ).
