Very tired today, didn’t sleep well, even with all the tempur products I feel like a car crash victim.
I’ve put a pic in my profile of the Bristol Rovers Logo. Being brought up on the east side of the city, they were the first football team I saw. I think it may have been Rovers Vs Tranmere Rovers sometime in 1971.
I saw them play Manchester United in 72 (i think) in the FA Cup, and most of the greats were still playing, Charlton, Law, Stepney, Best, Kid etc etc…… I’m not sure if Nobby was playing but i’d like to think he was. I didnt actually see that much of the game, there were 28000 (? memory may be incorrect) crammed into the old Eastville Stadium, which was probably several 1000 over capacity. Rovers lost 2-1.
The stadium has now been demolished and is the home of IKEA these days.
Well at least its Blue and not Red…
I hardly ever go to see them these days, too cold sitting in the seats, and that was a sunny day in March.
