    We took a firm into the Ninian pub in recent years and Cardiff were respectful and stood off. There was a thread about it on Annis Abrahams forum saying it was the old Forest 1980’s firm (which it was although lower numbers). Annis wasn’t too happy that we were showed respect.

    I attended the game at Crewe in 2005-we needed to win but only managed a 1-1 draw after sitting back on a 1-0
    lead(a Megson special performance!).
    As I walked away from the stadium,I knew we were destined for a spell in the 3rd Division.
    Sad times.

    Went there once, under David Pl*tt. Tony Vaughan got sent off for stamping on the Crewe keeper, who made a meal of it. We lost 1-0. Odd ground, one very big stand, three very little stands.

    For some strange reason I remember Trevor Ford played for Cardiff round about that time. A bit of a fan of his during my young days when we all wanted to be a centre forward.

    Reading your posts on here Bryn, it is obvious that we had quite a different approach to going to football matches during our younger days!

    I have to say, your approach sounds a bit more interesting than mine.

    A few grounds like that, with one great big stand. Walsall, Leeds and Newcastle come to mind immediately. Almost as if they started a building programme and ran out of time, money or just enthusiasm.

    I remember Crewe away very early in the season, it was scorching hot. Might even have been pre-season. Think we won but remember thinking the ground was very oddly proportioned, as mentioned above.

    Crewe itself was a bit of a shithole I thought.

He only got a colour tv when the shop wouldn't let him have another black and white telly.

    Yes,Crewe itself is hardly Las Vegas.
    However,it's got a great real ale pub-from memory I think it's called The Borough Arms.

    That’s something of an understatement.

    I think I’d sooner visit Chernobyl than Crewe.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    After a bit of research, I've found out why Goodison Park had those D shaped terraces behind the goal. They were put there in 1963, and removed in the early 70s.

    Any guesses why they were put there?

    NO cheating.

    There used to be a good pub next to the railway station.

    My parents rented our first colour tv from Radio Rentals (Derby) back in the summer of '73.
