Yeah those double deckers that the travel club organised were awful. The look on everyones face when they trundled down Roker Baths road was a look of disbeliefIt was awful. I was 16 and remember the cheerleader girls and we were all singing get your tits out for the lads at them . Bus broke down at donny on the way back. Wasn't a nice bus either it was a normal passenger double decker and we were on the back seats on the lower lever then ones without a footrest. Was soooooo uncomfortable .
Yes, that’s what I heard. Most of the Swindon fans on the day knew they weren’t going up. Players on both sides must have been messed up. I’ve always been convinced that we knew before the semi at the Mags and that’s why they were so motivated for that game and then so “unbothered” against Swindon.Didn't Bob Murray say he knew the outcome of the whole thing before the game? Must have been a crazy time to be alive.
Twats trick that mind. Our lot hoyed a lad out on the M62 for a laugh once but a bairn ffs ?Best journey home ever. About 6 of us in the back of a transit (mad looking back at that but wasn't a big deal at the time), I was only 10, fell asleep in the car park at Wembley stadium, woke up in the Tyne tunnel.
