@chairboyscentral There wasn't really the same focus by fans on kit design and colours in those days, similarly, replica shirts weren't generally on sale to supporters. Basically, for most people, it was just what the team played in. Wasn't until ar…
Can't see Bayo and MO'N in the same dressing room - seem to remember Bayo expressing some negative opinions about Martin at his book evening in the Vere.
Really? What sort of things…
A bit further afield for me for Epping Town v Hampton Town in the Anagram Trophy.
That sounds like a bit of a phantom game to me, nowt I can do about it though.
Wasn't Pigpen the organist in the Grateful Dead?
Noticed Barry Fry about to get into his big Posh car and trying to exit the main car park around 5.30 - surveyed the scene down Hillbottom Road and shook his head in frustrated bemusement - then stood around and posed for a couple of photos.
Someone's already mentioned this on a different thread, but it may be that some floating supporters are picking and choosing games month by month, so it's either Posh or Sunderland for this month. Still quite poor though, considering everything.
Have to say I have been championing the status of GA as best ever manager, for a couple of years now. How much longer we have to wait, before this is agreed by the majority, only time will te…
Was pretty solid in League 2 promotion season, 2010-11, but badly lacking at the higher level the following year. I remember a few games, Brentford away I think, and Fleetwood away in the Cup, when he was very poor.
@Wendoverman To be honest, I only go over there for friendlies or Tinpot Trophy games, and they're no yardstick of the liveliness or otherwise of the crowd, but I suppose the Beechdean has g…

A lot of revisionist history going on here. As previously mentioned Dunne was sold, not 'eased out'. Paris played a key role in the first half of the Wembley season before he too was sold to a Championship club.
No need to s…
@Steve_Peart Yes, that looks like the Posh game. First season at AP, total capacity 6000.
Main Stand 1267 (as now), Woodland Terrace 1733, both end terraces 1500. So terrace capacity not much more than now. However it was massively hiked up from a…
@Steve_Peart I seem to remember that the Sunderland figure was revised to 8725, confirmed by the club a few days after the game. Apparently there had been a 'human error' in the counting. Came to light in @railwaysteve 's 'guess the attendance' thre…
