Yes, those were the days, could walk round and change ends. There used to be another turnstile inside the stain where you could pay extra to access the John St wing terrace. I used to work opposite the players entrance on John St and i'm afraid to admit we'd speak to the players when we saw them. I was stood outside the company's John St entrance waiting for my mate to pick me up to go the watch Wednesday at Wolves when Jimmy Sirrell the blunts manager came out of the players entrance. I shouted across to him "ey, Jimmy, we got a spare seat in the car why don't you come with us toneet tha might learn summit" Well, he walks across the road and looks into the workshop where one of the old hands was grinding away and he says, "you need to take more notice of that bloke with the grinder and you might learn summit", funny as f--- really, i'll never forget that.
Needless to say, we won that night, cup game I think and headlines next day in the mail (i think) was "Jolly Roger", think Wylde scored 2 goals but may be wrong. Yep, sorry for drifting off topic.
