Remember the 74 Semi so well. Got split from the main body of Liverpool supporters after the match and about 8 of us had to make our way from the theatre of screams to victoria station.
Mancs appeared from every nook and cranny. We stuck together and ran from old trafford like th fuckin clappers all the way to victoria station.

 got my arse kicked that day, front tooth knocked out and black eye.somewhere between victoria bus station and train station. strangely enough by city fans, think they were at home that day

Funny that about the false teeth - same thing happened to my old fella but he never found them.  he was behind me as I was a kid and sat on a crash barrier -  teeth lost when we scored - can't remember who against.

My first game 1978 vs Ipswich - seven years old and in the paddock for first season.  Does anyone remember the bloke who had a small seat with a couple of G clamps on it and his lad would sit on the barrier in this dead comfy seat instead of getting dead legs like all the other kids?

My old fella started in the Div 2 days and he can remember changing ends at half time to from Anfield Road to The Kop.   Stu

As a kid, weren't the square crash barriers just so much better?

Where are all the auld arses?
Riddle me ree... what was that great big noise we used to start in the kop? Not the goalie barracking thing. It wasn't for any reason whatsoever. We just made that big long Ohhhhhh noise until it rattled round the ground. Went on for ages unless something happened. And then I think we got a pised off even if the lads scored a goal cos it ruined our noise.
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhh.

It was held for ages, usually when we had a corner, and sounded incredible.

I used to love to see the reaction of the opposition keepers when it started getting going.
I remember some foreign keeper saying he went cold when he heard it and didn't know what to do.

It wouldn't work now though. There'd have to be a 6 week debate on here about who was allowed to do it. Which fan organisation/section of the Kop/could or couldn't start it/how long it lasted etc

My Grandad worked at Lairds and he made me a pole with folding steps. Work of art it was but I never took it. Remember seeing lads with seats off swings hooked over the wall and milk/beer crates. Cant get in now if the lid is missing off your water bottle, imagine trying to get in with a seat attached to a couple of grappling hooks.

My Dad has some good stories from days of yore. Think my favourite was him and his mates getting legged in Southampton, they ran to a boozer that was run by a scouser, with the pub surrounded by Southampton lads the landlord wanders upstairs to fetch a shotgun that he then goes out and waves in their direction. Off they scattered.

Coventry in a league cup game that finished 2-2 mid – late 70`s remember the night midweekk game they must have brought thousands and all mostly by coach cos pinehurst was full of them.A lot of them had sheepskin coats on at the time and these where to be a prised posession.I remember there fans trying to hide under the coaches and liverpool fans throwing bricks underneath to get them out and also the cry of “I want his sheepy”
 I was also at leeds away whent they set that bus on fire and remember coming out of the ground seperated from my mates and I think every leeds fan came round to try and do us in and the police who where escorting us telling us if we didn’t behave they would let the animals at us(Leeds fans).
Used to hitchike to Bolton as well remember there police wearing white macs as it had been snowing and us going up to them asking if they where selling ice cream.Snow ball fight as well  plus one of the lads pinched some birds arse and she turned round and ragged me hair everywhere to the delight of the travelling away end plus bunking train home and getting thrown off at Wigan with about 20 others and the police escorting us out of wigan as quick as possible before we got up to naughties

Remember first time in Anny rd mid 70`s when there was no segregation and you could buy a cup of tea from a booth at the bottom of the steps kremlyn side and a West ham fan getting thrown from the side  stairs skinhead with hammers shaved into his headand lads waiting at bottom to kick him
Does any one remember

“Theres a wooly over there
Over there
And hes wearing brown air wear
Brown air wear
With a three star jumper half way up his back
Hes a f****ng Wooly back
Wooly back”

What was the other one

Ten past nine is stabbing time
Doo daa
Doo daa

HA! Good un. But it was brillaint that noise wasn't it. I loved it. Don't think you'd be able to hear it for all the moaning coming from the centenary now though.

I knew a Manc, who was fanatical Liverpool fan. He lived in Moss Side.
We played City at Anfield and he got a coach from Manchester to the game.
The soft get used to wear a City scarf until he got away from the coach; then put a Red one on.
Then he'd  swap them over again after the match so he could get back on the coach.

So he get's battered in Arkles Lane before the game because he didn't realise he was in the middle of their lads and he's just put his Red scarf on!

After the game he swaps it for his City scarf and get's whacked again in Priory Road!

Bright lads these Mancs.

I was working in London with a few Mancs. they were actually sound lads - Jake, Macca, Newbie. I went to their first game in the old first divison after they got relegated. I think it was Leyton Orient. Can't remember only went with them cos I was drunk. I got tugged a few times for the LiverBird on me arm, but the lads I was with saved me skin.
But after the game, I got rat arsed and started singing YNWA in an alehouse full of them. Me own mate, Macca, chinned me to stop me from getting a proper hiding. I don't blame the lad. I was a twat. And he stopped me getting a proper tonking.

I go back to the old second division days - used to travel by train to all the away games without paying a penny, wouldn't get away with it nowadays though!  I actually met Bill Shankly on the train coming back from Leyton Orient in 1961/62 when we got promoted with them, but that's another story!!
I was at some of the greatest games we had in the 60s - Arsenal 5-0 when we won the old First division, Milan 3-1 the same year, the 1965 Cup Final - all great memories and all with stories attached.

Didn't the "soccer special" stop at York, then return back to Lime Street?   


this particular special from lime street went to the small railway station in newcastle the name of which escapes me in my old age.


google is a wonderful thing, it was manors station

Didn't them Lawrensons go from Everton Valley?
I dunno, but 1966 Cup Winners Cup Final at Hampden is etched in my brain -   on some shitty coach - could have been Lawrenson.  Skived off school for the day. Took us 12+ hours to get up there and it must have been 36 to get back.   And still we fuckin lost!

Alan_F and yorkykopite , you both in Leeds? 



I remember me aul fella telling me that he blagged a ticket for the european cup final in Paris off a local radio presenter - and half hitch hiked and half got the train there with his mates.

And guess what,  He's a blue!  Says he used to go Anfield one week and Goodison the next.

I was born in Huddersfield (a couple of years after Shanks left 8)). Think AlanF was North London, though I remember him saying he was at the Liverpool-Leeds match in 74 (?) when Heighway scored the winner. I was too. Anyone else remember the Kop singing the Shankly 'Amazing Grace' anthem that day? In later years that song got sung too quick (sound familiar?), but at that match it was perfect. It's probably still the greatest single song I've heard in a footy stadium.

I think it was 75. The gates were locked by 2pm. Highway scored a few minutes from the end and Anfield went mad.

Leeds 73. It was 60p to get in the cowshed, stupid money in those days. Liverpool got beat 1-0 Mick Jones scored in the first half.

Don Revie was being presented with a manager of the month award before the game and Liverpool fans sang for Shanks prior to the presentation to the point that despite numerous requests over the tannoy to be quiet it took the great man himself to come out to the cowshed and ask for quiet so Revie could get his award.

What a rivalry that was.
