  1. Long time ago, Royal on cliffe, remember going in as a kid with my old man, proper man's pub. Then he moved to Crown (Bronco Layne) and sometimes Big Gun in twicker, even used to drink in there with some of his mates pre match who'd come from Shirecliffe which always confused me.
  2. Got ones from about 1980 to about 96 just about went to every game, moved abroad after then. Also got some older ones mainly from 60s and 70s and some 30s.
  3. Or these, probably worth more in today's money
  4. These players would be handy, just found this program in my pile of old stuff. Good Times.
  5. A few times, once that was memorable was in 97 at Southampton, Hirst scored to equalise for Southampton (what's it all about our ex players always scoring against us) and I stood up and applauded. Quite a few people seemed a tadge annoyed by me, ironically enough Palmer then put us 2-1 down (see happens again) but all ended up well with Di Canio scoring the winner for us with about 5 minutes left. I'd drank a lot of Strongbow smooth that day, a cider that sadly dissaperared never to be seen again a few months later.
  6. Never did well against Oldham, away was always dodgy as well.
  7. Don't need all the badges in the world to be a manager, don't really need to be that knowledgeable about football. What you need to be able to do is manage people and know w where your own weaknesses are and employ people who have their strengths where your weaknesses are. I always thing Sir Clive Woodward was one of the best managers in any sport and he worked along similar lines, even when he was at Southampton FC for a short time but he butted heads with big characters such as Redknapp where they couldn't all see this style of management.
  8. Had a few epically drunk nights in there, used to work at the bottom of Sheffield road, finish work on afternoons and straight in there on a Friday night, back in work Saturday morning for 6 for some overtime finish at 12 and taxi straight to pub before game, doubt if I'd manage that now though.
  9. That's normal reporting in ze fatherland, doesn't read as bad in German as the English translation does, not saying it reads good but nothing that is worry about.
  10. Watched six or so years of German lower leagues and his attitude towards the fans and the club is typical of the players who played there but his ability on the pitch is so much more. This video was when VFL Osnabruck won promotion in 07 to the German second tier, best atmosphere I'd been at for many a year and am epic day where all the team ended up down town with the fans later that night.
  11. Bournemouth, Southampton or Pompey away, purely to make it easy to get to for me.
  12. Trevor Francis he was somewhat of an impact sub for us.
  13. Kept us in the cup with his concussed performance, realistically should have been taken off.
