  1. October 18th 1958 (had to look the date up) - Wednesday at home to Grimsby - I was 10 and didn’t have a dad around any longer and mum was too old to go to games so a neighbour took me - made a foolish statement before the game that I would support whoever won!! Luckily I didn’t have to make the trip to Blundell Park every week as the Wednesday won 6 - 0!! - and Grimsby had a centre half playing that day called Job who put through his own net twice for our first 2 goals - needless to say I became hooked from that day on and now I go with my lad and granddaughter all 3 of us season ticket holders - and even though I’m just about to enter my 70’s the thrill of setting foot into my beloved Hillsborough is still there just as it was 60 years ago - it never leaves you!

    Anyone up for this one?

    I’m afraid I’d struggle to ‘Walk 4 Wednesday’ never mind run(!!) but I’ve popped a bit in the collection tin for this very good cause
  3. The guy 5th from the left must be the keeper - he’s wearing a flat cap!!
  4. because Carlos said we would get in the playoffs and we would be in the Premiership next year - he wasn’t kidding us was he?

    Me too
  6. and what other employer would allow their star employee to have a 6 month fully paid sabbatical sitting by his swimming pool in Italy - are any of our medical staff checking on Forestierri’s fitness or is just the case of ‘give us a ring Fernando when you fancy a game!’
  7. I'm over 65 and have been a season ticket holder for 40 years plus and have never called for the manager to go as I strongly believe in consistency and minimal change - BUT I'm sorry it really is now time for a change!!

  9. I won't rest until the stripes return!!

    They won't need telling which team we support once they see the car - ribbons balloons scarves inflatables - you name it we've got it!!
  13. Will they have our game on the big screen - would hate them to miss it
