28 Years Ago Today

  1. Remember that game. I couldn't believe we threw it away and the 50 Bournemouth fans in the (old) Platt Lane went mental.

    Always seemed to be an eventful day out at Notts. County for some reason. I think certain well known City fans popped in the dressing room amongst all the chaos for a chat with the lads about their under performance, that day.

    Then there was the FA Cup game a few years later, where we again took over the ground, had about 90% possession and still managed to lose one nil.

    And of course the sombre night in the League Cup down there, the same night as the twin towers came a cropper.

    After that FA Cup game I remember seeing Mark Ward rushing through the carpark already changed only about 20mins after the final whistle.

    Must've had something urgent to attend to.

    I was there that day, 28 years where has that gone, most chaotic day following City away ever, every loony in Manchester that day must have been there.
    Talking to a Notts fan years ago on holiday he was there that day with his Mrs and said she was petrified and left at half time to wait for him in the pub by the canal but when she got there that was full of pissed up City as well so she went home !!

    Got to the ground at ten to three. There were thousands queuing at our end, it was pay at the gate and loads didn't get in till about 3.30. Me and my mate went down to their end, 3 people in the queue, so in we went. We then hopped the fence and walked down to our end. We were nicely placed for the ko. Ah! The days of cash turnstiles!<br /><br />-- Mon May 06, 2013 4:55 pm --<br /><br />Got to the ground at ten to three.

    Remember being outside a pub having a few bevvies in Chesterfield. Think it was with Dukinfield supporters club, waving at the thousands of City fans going past in coaches and cars. Mad day fences coming down and bedlam everywhere. Never seen us take over an away ground to that extent. A copper waded into the crowd behind the nets at one point twatting people with a big stick he had. Big mistake, some big grisly laid him out and a bit of a running battle with the Police cordon ensued. Shite result but made the Charlton game all the sweeter, Simmo was unplayable that day.
