    Hooliganism and Violence Maine Road 80's/early 90's

    Yep , i used to drink in the Kennilworth pub on Cheadle Road , as well as the British Legion on Turves Road , and i don't think i ever met a Stockport County fan in either ....... i watched a derby match in the Britsh Legion on one occasion and almost 200 City fans showed up, and 13 rags !

    Hooliganism and Violence Maine Road 80's/early 90's

    Yep , they would have been , on that stretch of road its quite open , not many places to escape to .... but in that incident there are also a fair number of United fans involved , and one of them is waving a big stick too ... yet the cops completely ignore them and go after the City fans.

    Hooliganism and Violence Maine Road 80's/early 90's

    Lol, i recall going to Stamford Bridge in the 70's when Asa Hartford scored the only goal of the game towards the end ..... we had just about made it back to the coaches near the gasworks , when were suddenly surrounded by a fuckin' scruffy bunch of irate Chelsea yobs, about 30 strong .... two...

    Yep, he was never one to show any respect to United , was Doyley .. the guy was tough character, had nerves of steel , and his grandson looks to have the same 'steely' character and gritty determination to be a top player.

    Hooliganism and Violence Maine Road 80's/early 90's

    Old Trafford wasn't a good place to be that day .... i was stood in the United Road Paddock (or the old cantilever stand, visible on the top photo) , you could sense that crowd trouble was brewing throughout in the second half , and when thousands of rags invaded the pitch from the Stretford End...

    Hooliganism and Violence Maine Road 80's/early 90's

    Yep , i was there .... that was a lively day! As you say we had a large following there and some couldn't resist climbing over the fence to confront the Derby fans on the pitch.

    Hooliganism and Violence Maine Road 80's/early 90's

    lol , yes i've tied a few up in knots myself .... i mentioned to one rag dipstick the other week, who was droning on about their attendances, that during their relegation campaign one of their home league matches only attracted a crowd of 28,000 ... but would he have it , would he fuck as like...

    Tinnitus help and advice

    A bit of advice from t'internet ..... Can you wear a hearing aid if you have tinnitus? Hearing aids allow wearers to hear sound they might be missing, which can effectively mask a lot of the tinnitus ringing. When you're able to hear everything going on around you the tinnitus doesn't sound...

    Music Association Game

    Yep, this great song is very much a classic , and it's the first time i've actually heard this version of it ..... it's pretty good , but not quite as good as the Four Tops version in my opinion .... Levi Stubbs voice was so powerful, the guy simply 'owned it'. It's just my personal preference...

    It must be Christmas

    Lol, yes, Biff Pilchard , i mean Cliff Richard, had the christmas chart topper sown up for so many years , didn't he? That was until Simon Cowell ruined his plans and started 'planting' his x-factor winners into the christmas number one slot! But personally i can't wait for Christmas , i l...

    Hooliganism and Violence Maine Road 80's/early 90's

    Yep. they were a real dodgy lot back then .... this cup game was played on a Sunday in the early 70's but there was a bad feeling even before the game, and our coach was bricked as soon as we entered Nottingham .... the Forest yobs broke out of the home sections and surrounded us in on one...

    Hooliganism and Violence Maine Road 80's/early 90's

    Yeah , they were previously ciculating leaflets in the kippax asking for 'recruits' who 'wouldn't run' .... rumour has it that they had a 'run in' with Millwall near London Bridge.

    Hooliganism and Violence Maine Road 80's/early 90's

    Yep, Cold Blow Lane was a daunting, even creepy, place to visit , and you never felt comfortable there , narrow streets, dodgy characters hanging around in groups, i remember them attacking a City coach before one game there and bricking its windows .... we walked to the ground from New Cross...
