    27 Jan marks the 50th anniversary of my first match - a 3rd round FA Cup tie v Sheffield Utd (not sure why it was so late that year, postponements, probably).
    With such a huge gap between home fixtures, I’m really not sure whether to regard tomorrow or the Chelsea game on 5 Feb as the appropriate fixture, though I’m inclined towards the former, especially given the significance regarding GT.
    Anyone else on here got something big coming up? (Try to resist the temptation, RC...)

    Ah yes, the Jimmo Lawton knee over the bar from virtually on the goal line - a physical impossibility, but he managed it. Bonser sold Tony Currie to Sheffield Utd and bought Lawton from Darlington via Swindon.
    Those on here that think Gray is "poor" should have seen Jimmo...

    Seem to recall that in late 60s/ early 70s you could change ends at half time?

    Luther, I’m a year behind.

    But I don’t have a clue which match/when was my debut.

    Old man was PNE but they weren’t in the division that year.

    It was always them, Swindon & Boscombe in my day.

    9th April it'll be 30 years for me. First game we beat Oxford 3-0.
