Who played here.

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

Been there (Elland Road) many times John although the first time must have been quite a few years after that picture was taken. That said I’m pretty sure the main stand hadn’t changed much in 1975 when I watched Town draw 1-1 in an FA Cup QF replay on a Tuesday Night where Town were denied a win by Duncan McKenzie scoring a 90th minute equaliser.

Even better was two weeks later when Town played Leeds United twice in the space of three days at Filbert Street Leicester, first game drawing 0-0 before winning 3-2 on a Thursday night when 17yr old John Wark made his debut. Luckily I was working in Leicester at the time and was able to go to both games thanks to Towns Charlie Woods who got me tickets for both matches.

I can remember those games as if it were last week.....although I can’t remember what I was doing last week!

Only joking, I was playing golf in Biarritz, that was easy to remember.

Correct Andy, that's another Goldfish.
my wife ( Leeds fan ) went to all those cup ties, remember getting talked into driving her there for a Leeds v Spartak Moscow in the Champions League. late 90s, not one of my favourite grounds.

It looks like Filbert Street, Leicester City to me.

I’ve been there many time not only to watch Ipswich but to watch a City too, the stadium was there for the first six of my 20 years living in Leicestershire so I guess I have an unfair advantage.

I think you’ll find that’s the easy ones done for me now John....

Elland Road, - I lived in Leeds for 4 years.

Highbury - We had a Company Box at Highbury behind the goal which I used many times.

Filbert Street - I worked for one of the Clubs Sponsors so went there many times too.

I think the next ones will be more challenging although the 70’s and 80’s were the years when I visited the most grounds.

It’s actually in better condition than half of NZ’s rugby grounds just out of interest. :wink:
