1986  a steady 7-1  win over QPR 

 

My dad   "its not always like that, I better tell you " 

 

I still think he was kidding and it really 'will be like that ' soon 🙄

I could be wrong, but didn't think the Cantilever was built in 1963?

Thought it was built just prior to World Cup in 66.

Still the North Stand but not "The Cant" back then

 

 

 

Apologies to Redowl it was built in 60/61

Was it the Leppings Lane that was done just prior to 66?

October 1971, my first week at the Uni (so not a Sheffield lad borne and bred, I just adopted the place).  Tickets in the North Stand were one of the freebies up for grabs to the 'freshers', we beat Fulham 4-0 but can't remember who scored.

 

Where I came from had a team in the Northern Premier League and I used to follow them, biggest game I ever saw was against Barrow in the 1st round proper of the FA cup, that's what I was used to. The size, sound and atmosphere of Hillsborough absolutely blew me away; the hook went in then and I've been on it ever since, wherever in the world I happened to be.

What a game and season to start, all down hill from there pal. 

And nearly got crushed in the away end as well. Thankfully no one was hurt. Fantastic result to start off with 2-0.

1991 v QPR

 

Won 4-1 Carlton Palmer hat trick and John Sheridan scored the other, been a bit down hill in the last 30 years!

I'd say the moment that Trevor Francis was sacked and David Pleat came in, that's when things really went downhill from here, and we really never recovered from that point.
