I'm pretty sure I was there with crowds well below 6000 plenty of times back in the mid-80s.

There were.
I remember it well.

Yes, I tend to like Islington for example because if you walk down a side street you never quite know what will be there. Old school market, battle cruiser, gastro pub, tough estate, juice bar, millionaires row, US tech company etc. A few seasons ago I walked after the game (the one where Puncheon skied the penalty) from White Hart Lane to London Bridge Station. In two hours I felt like I'd seen the world.


I find it a problem tho that it costs so much for a gaff but I may feel unsafe when popping to the shops.

Most cities in the world are not like that in my experience but I think it really helps to make London what it is, still one of the best cities in the world IMHO.

Very true. Far less segregated than other Cities. Especially compared to Paris, which is obviously often regarded as one of London’s ‘best city in the world’ rivals.

I distinctly remember standing on a near empty Holmesdale in the pissing rain watching us lose to Grimbsy, 2-0 I think in front of 4000 something.

There was also a match where it was raining so hard that Uncle Ron had an announcement broadcast inviting all those getting soaked on the open terraces to move under cover in the AW. And 4000 looked really sparse in a stadium with a 52,000 capacity at that time.

Or as they were otherwise known as - the good old days.

I think I preferred them, but maybe it was just about being young.

Reminded me of Woolworth's selling singles under a label called Embassy I think. Top 20 hits but by cover artists. You Really Got Me was a shambles. :)

I'd have those days back in a heatbeat though.
Wouldn't you?

Also, tattoos. It is a bit like wearing the same T-shirt every day for the rest of your life. Even if you got one of the Palace badge, we change that every 20 years so it would eventually be out of date.

which is when people can tell how long you have supported your club for

Yes and no. It always makes me shudder a bit that a few alternative steps would have found me living an entirely different older life. So look back on it fondly, but wouldn't want to risk f*cking up what I have now.

Why Talksport thinks Mr Jordan is an expert on football finance, despite losing £50m.

Obviously they know he isn't, just as they know Durham is a massive twat. He's there because he can sound plausible by spouting just the kind of trollingbshite that will make wanker fans phone them up and try and score off him.

This is why it is called TalkShite.

Yep - average was around 6,000 for the first couple of Coppell seasons, but some individual games were below that. The occasional 10,000 attendance felt like a big gate.

I’m sensing a gap in the market, I might become the 48th:rolleyes: how does monkeypower sound?

Your energy company is pretty much just the company you choose to send you the bill.

Everyone uses the same infrastructure. I guess they just bulk buy the energy they need from a generation company to serve the number of customers they have and then choose what to charge you.

Yeah! I was going to edit my post, I was thinking it was a midweek night game and possibly 3-0.

Anyway I thought you disapproved of this thread? ;)

stevek 16-09-2019 01:08 PM

3-0 in front of 5,052.
