A full list would be difficult to compile.

 

Would 'thirty-odd thousand football fans' satisfy your curiosity?

A Wednesday afternoon if I recall, we all arranged to have the afternoon off, met in the Buccaneer for a couple of pints in plastic glasses then got a bus to the game, boring possession football from Santos. Tommy Craig shadowing Pele towards the end to ensure he got the shirt.

Yep I was there, right on the front row of the corner between north and west stands. Only time I’ve been in there, my old man said it’s as close as you can get if he takes corner!

Think half the schoolkids in Sheffield, me included, bunked off school that day.

 

As torry said it was a poor game and Pele just seemed to stroll around. Remember their first goal was a clearance from our goalie which rebounded in off the ar5e of one of their players and Wednesday trying a corner routine which was probably the best move of the match but Joicey (I think) shot just wide.

I think Pele was carrying an injury.
