My 18th birthday that day and yes big 50 today. Couldn’t believe what we were seeing. Big gangs of lads in town after. Walked into a City boys pub near Victoria by mistake thank god then Bolton got off a train at Victoria and kicked off after playing Wolves. Got on the train back to Radcliffe and full of blues and me and my mate filled the carriage up with our rum and black currant puke. What a day.iconic day, iconic kit. 1, 2, 123, 1234, 5-1!!!!
Jesus what happened to those 32 years, I was a young man of 24 stood on the Kippax with Colin and Tino, what a fucking day.
when Hughes scored everyone was shitting their pants this was another Bournemouth fuck up but Oldfield and Hinchcliffe sealed the deal with half an hour to go.
Yeah. Wasn't the rumour at the time that O'Neill got those tickets directly from someone in a senior admin role at City.I went to away game on a coach from Stockport the week before. I can't remember who it was against but someone mentioned Brentford in an earlier post. There was a few days holidays to use up from work so I booked time off for the match.
Anyway a lad on our coach said there would be trouble, he'd heard the Rags had got hold of 200 seats, not sure where from. So I wasn't surprised when it kicked off.
