    Smacks of ‘football started in 1992’ mentality but maybe had we finished runners up in say the 80’s it may get more considered whereas that was a longgggg time ago

    I know football didn't start in '92 but I think we know what he meant.

    We all moan about those clubs living in the past and pulling in a league position from 1929 is really stretching past glories <laugh>

    I mean, I’ve been a fan all my life (28 years old) and didn’t know anything about the 28/29 season so I can excuse him...

    Good job this forum wasn't running in the season where we had the big freeze! As I remember, we kept playing our home matches due to that inflatable cover over the pitch and I think we had quite a lead at the top of the table by the time other teams got going, but gradually our lead slipped away and we had a poor finish. Another 'nearly' season.

    That was a few years after the big freeze of 1963. Did Weller's missus ever find out where the tights came from?
