    One of my favourite characters from the 70's


    I fell in love with football as I was later to fall in love with women,. Suddenly, uncritically giving no thought to the pain it could bring. - Nick Hornby

    Indeed he did.

    He also lost a couple of fingers whilst fixing a lawn mower, I think that happened when he was playing at Southampton.

    In 1933, and with the change in government in Germany, the the ground is renamed the Adolf Hitler Kampfbahn:



    Of course, this name was discontinued after WWII, and the Stadium was briefly named the Century Stadium, until 1949, when it was renamed the Neckarstadion.

    Here is an aerial shot of the Neckarstadion in 1974:



    The open end to the right side of the photo above is the famed Cannstatter Kurve, where the most passionate supporters gather.

    Another rename came in 1993, when the stadium was renamed the Gottlieb Daimler Stadion, after the local Motor-industry pioneer. After 2008, another major refurbishment was started, including putting a roof around the whole ground using a revolutionary type of fabric.

    Here it is, under construction:



    In 2008, it was then renamed the Mercedes-Benz Arena, and it remains so today:



    Another refurbishment is planned before the Euro 2024 championship, which will be hosted by Germany.

    The Cannstatter Kurve though, still remains the heart of the ground:

    Where Ireland (including Hughton) beat England at Euroo '88

    For years when I ran out onto a football pitch bouncing a ball I would have the star soccer theme tune ringing in my ears. That tune, Hugh John’s voice, proper crowd noises that’s all you need.

    Along the theme of this thread, do Littlewood's still do the pools?

    Iconic game to have been at though for the van Basten hat trick. Watched that back fairly recently. The whole tournament is on Daily Motion. England hit the woodwork twice, cracking match.

    First international tournament I remember watching. Loved that Dutch team. Thought Gullit was a football god. Gullit, Rijkaard, van Basten, Koeman and I think the greatest ever football kit.
