    What about an album with various songs from say Aug 1983 until May 1984 and lets call it :'Now that's what I call That Season !'

    April 19, 1902 FA Cup, Final, at Crystal Palace, Sheffield United – Southampton 1-1 Can you image the amount of penalties we'd get today if the old 1891-1902 pitch marking shown above and rulings would take place ! Players would very probably be going down when receiving the 'minimum of contact' all the width of the pitch inside that line across the pitch Just thought this was a better picture of a pitch markings back then. Before the penalty area markings and rulings came into being. Before we were formed !

    No, it's not just you mate, I even hear music from 1983 and 84 and think oh I remember that it's from that season !

    Compare the pitch markings for 1919 to that just 18 years earlier ! The penalty kick was introduced in 1891 but the penalty spot did not arrive until 1902. The penalty line which ran parallel but twelve yards away from the goal line. This can be seen clearly on the picture below and the penalty kick could be taken anywhere along the line. Picture 1901 FA Cup Final Tottenham Hotspur v Sheffield United Source: Internet: http://commons.wikimedia.org/ 'With the introduction of rules, the features of the football pitch as we know it slowly began to appear. The kick-off required a centre spot; keeping players ten yards from the ball at kick-off, brought the centre circle. It is interesting to note that when the penalty came in 1891, it was not taken from a spot but anywhere along a 12-yard line before 1902. The 1902 decision to award penalties for fouls committed in an area 18 yards from the goal line and 44 yards wide, created both the penalty box and penalty spot. Another box 'goal area', commonly called the 'six-yard-box', six yards long and 20 wide, replaced a semi circle in the goalmouth. However it was not for another 35 years that the final piece of the jigsaw, the 'D' shape at the edge of the penalty area,' Just in case anyone is interested !

    That's a very good picture . Cheers for posting Notice no D's on edge of the penalty box. They came into being in 1937.

    Barnsley 0-0 Chelsea Saturday, 10th December 1983 at 3pm I'll be surprised if anyone remembers much, if anything about this game to be honest ! They were managed by Norman Hunter. 10,300 saw it. We're still 2nd in Div 2. Next up is Grimsby at the Bridge on Sat 17th Dec 83.
