Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
I should add that I was brought up in the sixties watching Bury at Gigg Lane, only occasionally being treated to a big match at Old Trafford, Ewood Park or Turf Moor. I'm right with you on hairy-arse footie. It can be the best of the lot. Best match I ever saw was Bury vs Rotherham. It cost me a tanner to get in and I saw Alf Barlow and Len Fairclough out of Coronation Street there.
Mind you, google Burnley vs Sheffield Wed, FA Cup, on March 7 1961. I was there. It changed my life...
