Great day out. Had the whole end terrace and seats. Was a great atmosphere and must have had 10,000 there no problem. That official attendance is laughable, the shelf was packed and no building work had started.

Remember that one, shed was rammed and me and mate climbed into the bit which was closed by the floodlight pylon next to East stand, he ripped his Lois cords climbing fence and we were moved out by old bill back into shed, no bloody room, so ended up missing 2nd half, remember being in forecourt when Speedie scored!! 35 years!!!!

Surprised there was no tv coverage of our home game v Liverpool,

Thought either bbc or itv would have had that game in their highlights programme.

Wasn’t there a spell of industrial action with the tv company’s around that time. Nothing to do with the Ken Bates issue he had for a time with BBC & ITV

You could be right. Had forgotten about that.

Then came the 'TV domestic football black out' for a fair part of the following 1985/86 season !

Completely unthinkable today, that !!
