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.

I see health & safety was big back then? :lol:
Go to the football and climb the floodlights.

It was quite the norm in the 60’s Marko, like you my first thoughts were Ibrox, there were loads of pics of Rangers fans viewing the game from the floodlights.

Wild guess from me, Ninian Park Cardiff.

That last picture I find really fascinating for some reason, just the layout of the street, the placement of the houses etc.

Never see something like that where I come from.

I think the latest is Elm Park Reading pre Madejski days.

Giveaway Huntley and Palmer Biscuits advertising on the roof, when I was younger Reading were nicknamed The Biscuitmen and only changed this to The Royals when I was probably mid 20’s or later.
