I worked there a lot in the 80s. Most of it looked like a location for a Sweeney car chase scene. Loved it. Like much of London, been reshaped into something unrecognisable. And chock full of C*nts.

Yep. Way too gentrified. Same as Peckham.

With all these places you only have to walk 50 to 100 yards off the gentrified high roads and you are in estates worse than the 70s. Not too bad in the day time but after it's dark at about 4.30 in the winter and many are unnerving to put it mildly.

Council estates in the 70s and 80s could be decent places to live. Some of the private housing then was shocking. Don't buy into the myth.

The under appreciation of Chris Armstrong. I learnt today he is one of the top six Premier League goalscorers for Tottenham. This, along with the fact that for a season or two he was a brilliant striker here, makes me wonder why he isn't talked more about on these boards (compared to say Ian Wright or AJ) or indeed more generally.

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 Even if you got one of the Palace badge, we change that every 20 years so it would eventually be out of date.

Oh I agree. I ought to know. Some were decent large estates where most were working and you had mixed communities with mixed incomes. St Pauls Cray, Mottimgham, Windsor Drive, Poverest and the Coppice were examples. There were others that were dodgy. I worked on some absolute shockers too in the late 70s. I've worked on some in recent years in inner London where after about 4.30 and when it's dark I've felt on edge, around Bermondsey St and the Elephant in particular. Maybe that's because I getting old and no longer a regular long distance runner.

Eh, I walk through places like that a fair bit at night (my girlfriend lives in New Cross), and I don’t think they’re that bad. For grimness I think parts of the North definitely trump anywhere in London, although like London I wouldn’t call them intimidating. Just run down.

Sure, there aren't many estates that I would have felt unsafe walking through in the 70s during the day. In fact I've worked on plenty in the day more recently and can't think of one I'd feel unsafe on in the daylight at the moment although there are tower blocks where you feel uneasy e.g be careful not to touch the lift buttons without gloves because the junkies put needles behind them. After dark in winter it is one thing to walk through the estates but another to spend time on with valuable work materials. As I said the Rockingham, Heygate, Aylesbury estates and around Bermondsey St come to mind.

It's also strange as most fans didn't even attend during half of Wright and Brights time. Crowds of 6 to 8000 before promomtion and even in cup games in 90-91.

Proper shit hole.
Bit like New Addington but with less fields.

That's one of the things that makes London so special though, I think it's pretty unique and it's like that all over the city, walk down one street and its all £1,000,000+ houses turn the corner and you're in a dodgy council estate. 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.

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.
