  1. What a manager, looking back at the balance and playing style of that team still makes me smile today. Many games sound out the one I always remember was Yeovil at home. That night it felt like confirmation that we were serious.
  2. I can see Gilly sneaking into that one next to Billy. Lenny up front, many more familiar faces. It was one of the strangest days following Town, all those years avoiding disaster and then it smacks you in the face. Was in mourning for weeks.
  3. Oooh sorry, I missed it. Worth a play each week I think.
  4. It's funny, when I was thinking of reserves two players came to mind. Colin Blain, because he always put in a good shift and looked like he would be something. Then Jimmy Mcilraith who clearly didn't appreciate being put in the reserves and cloned about at every opportunity.
  5. I think might have been Hull not Grimsby? I think the ref was Mike Peck, who lived next door to my auntie in Kendal. He said the atmosphere was very uncomfortable and quite scary.
  6. I used to sit in there during reserve games only. I used love watching the reserves, might have a hundred or so there but it was the original ITK crowd. Great Times. I bet Shaymus used to go.
  7. I think sound is so typical of the era, great chorus
  8. When DJ comes back let's all pretend we have merged with Burnley, who are moving to the Shay, and will be playing in the top flight. Wild is being kept on as manager over dyche
  9. Shant gets my vote as one of my locals as a youth but always preferred the Ivy House. I loved the fledgling spoons as 20 something living on London in the early 90's but that was before the days roll ups dominating the doorway and steak nights!
  10. I used to go to watch live bands when it bacame hangovers
  11. I am sure you are not baldy baldy
  12. There was one on windy Bank, John Noakes went there as part of a blue Peter feature
  13. I remember my first introduction to Buddy Holly was through a tribute act at Crosskeys club, shortly after it re opened as I'll Ingworth RLFC. Was my local at the time
  14. So in amongst my love of everything from Dean Martin to Melodic Death Metal from Gothenburg his crappy song never goes away. I don't know why
  15. Chadders looks a bit younger in that crowd shot!
  16. I am sure somebody will have had this one but we are in a loop at the minute
  17. My favourite track from this band, not one of the well known ones
  18. Tram shed of course and liked mention of Good Mood. Anybody got a list of bands who played there?
  19. Ring o bells, was dead if it wasn't for the ghosts.
  20. Yes, I worked there some 30 odd years ago. Rugger buggers came in at about 10pm, already very stewed and usually with a chicken leg up their arse as a bet. I felt humbled.
  21. Nobody mentioned the Westgate, always felt shut even when it was open.
