    Well I am 64 in June and most of the guys I mentioned a few posts ago were all older than me. So most will be late 60s and early 70s now.
    As you say,handy lads back in the day. I would suggest that age has slowed them down a bit though.It gets to us all eventually.

    Our little crew used to hire minibuses and vans from Salford Van Hire. We always had to make sure that they were unsign written ones though.
    Imagine driving through Birmingham, Bristol,Liverpool or Newcastle with SALFORD VAN HIRE all over the side of the van.
    The windows would have lasted about 2 minutes as we got near the ground.
    Might have got away with it in Leeds as SVH have a branch there.
     
  3. same as ...or Mitchells van Hire. No seats in the back.....full of loons

    Rember that, WH were at the North Stand end of the Main Stand. After the game the cops had them all boxed in a side street off Kippax Street. I've never seen a large crew then or since in the Main Stand

    Yes Mitchells were on the other side of Bury New Road from SVH iirc. I used them to hire a van when I first moved house in 1980.
    We always tried to hire a minibus but if they had none to hire then a van had to make do.
    We went to Bristol City in 1977, starting off at midnight from Piccadilly Gardens. All pissed up lying all over the back of the van.
    Then a few weeks later going to Derby County (when Big Joe made them paint the penalty spot) in the back of a Luton van.
    Hanging out of the back with the shutter up,throwing empty cans and apple cores at the rags waiting at bus stops in Hazel Grove,New Mills and Whaley Bridge etc. A fucking laugh a minute to be honest,my best days of being a City fan.
    And we nearly won the league that year as well.
