Just seen Stattos post - was thinking that even the day we celebrated going up from the Third we played an awful 0-0 with Carlisle - must have been so bad it felt like we lived through it twice!

Actually may have been that one as i remember promotion being part of it. Its a while ago so memory a bit vague.

.....and we were allowed to leave via Leppings Lane.

We used to stand on the Leppings Lane end in those days, generated some atmosphere from the narrower terrace.....

This was my first game as an 8 year old.  Sat in the Leppings Lane end as the South and Cantilever were full.

Assuming the stats are correct it just shows you how our crowds were a bit tricky to predict in the past. Take this from the season we came 5th in Division 1

38. Wed 16 Apr  ARSENAL................. 2-0     6     16,344   Carl Shutt, Mel Sterland

We got a bigger crowd against Shrewsbury when we were poo.

That is amazing!

 

I did notice however that we had a very good record at Hillsborough that season before that run of three games

Crowds in general were terrible that season.

 

22nd April 1986.  WBA v Owls 1-1 in front of 6,201.             10,259 for Leicester v Owls.
