  1. modern 'journalism' at its finest. Hide behind youtube and stir some s***. It brought the city together, made us very proud to be sheffielders and remembered the lads who paid the ultimate sacrifice. who plants the bedding plants and sweeps up from time to time is of little or no consequence. I dont see what youre trying to achieve by posting it to be honest.
  2. it was indeed, it served sam smiths bitter which always consistent. consistently bloody awful!
  3. I had hair and a waistline when I asked that question paul !!
  4. Never mind the fiesta, that alfa's a beauty
  5. God bless sheffield history......you may have to wait 10 years for a reply but you do get one!!
  6. I've read today in the star that Steve Baxendale the owner of rebels has sadly passed away. Thanks for the memories steve, RIP fella.
  7. Remember this one well. A dark depressing film but kind of sums up the hopeless feeling a lot of us had in the early eighties very well. If i'm not mistaken the line "It is not a good time to be young and hopeful" is from the book. That was written on the bus stop at campo lane for decades...always made me smile when I saw that...
  8. I was there that day. I was 22 at the time and did a lot of growing up that day..I worked on the turnstiles for nearly 15 years until I moved away. my ten penn'th...poor antiquated ground much like villa,everton,wolves,birmingham and many others of that era. Fatal mistakes made by people who should never ever have been in charge that day. Alcohol was a factor on the day and I wish people would not try to rewrite history and claim its not...many many people turned up after 2.30 and many the worse for wear...whilst this was not the main or only cause it was a contributing factor and it saddens me that people won't take their part of the blame. RIP to the 96...there for the grace of god go I and many others who watched football week in and week out in those days...it could have happened anywhere..
  9. Boy oh boy some sad sights there Also, I'm sat here thinking I must have a liver like an old boot from the number of times i've mumbled 'blimey..had a pint in there' and 'there as well' whilst reading this thread.... ;-)
  10. Thats one hell of a pub crawl girls and boys....! lol

  13. So where was michelles then?..that was heading in that direction
  14. Blimey colin...I used to go to the pig&whistle on a sunday for your rock night (fairly sure it was you anyroad ) and we'd nip in to the booth to request stuff whilst the record was playing. You'd always play Little Angels stuff for us and for me and my then girlfriend and the rest of the crew that was good enough for us. what a legend! Happy days indeed...thanks for the memory ;-)
  15. Bradfield left in 1983 still there and by all accounts has good reputation bloody long walk home mind you..bet thats still the case..! ;-)
  16. nothing at all racist in that comment..so stop trying to trip yourself up Its a simple fact..chinese folk cook chinese dishes better, indian folk cook indian dishes better and english folk make the best fish and chips
  17. I'm originally from oughtibridge so am familiar with the hague name. If it is Doug hague who owns it then he is a successful local business man who had a haulage/digger hire firm for many years. I'm aware from talking to my old man he has diversified into land and property over the recent years. I believe the plough in in low bradfield is also owned by him too. Good luck to the guy,and its not for me to critisize but it seems a damn shame to see it all go rack and ruin and surely it would be more lucrative to develop it..?
  18. wehay ! ..and we even finished beyond blackpool ...amazing lol :blink:
  19. oh thats a bit better news. Wonderful building it did seem to me quite odd that it was not going to be developed as something... look forward to seeing the photo's poppychristina
  20. I fear our luck may have run out this time.....but we live in hope :unsure:
  21. Blimey can't believe the marquis has gone, it was a wonderful imposing building but has been left to rack and ruin over the last few years. I can remember going to a mates 21st birthday do there...mind you that was 21 years ago.... :blink:
  22. what a day...what a team and now.....i'd just be happy to stay in the second division..... :(
  23. true...and played 63 scored 63 is something I doubt we'll see the likes of ever again..whichever team you support. RIP bigman
