  1. I was at the Man City game, Jan 1974, along with 41,000 others and yes Duncan McKenzie was brilliant! We beat Pompey 1-0 in next round-only 38,000 for that one, then it was Newcastle away. What memories
  2. Was your brother the first one to have a box at Forest???
  3. Queen-Now I'm Here "down in the dungeons with Peters and Lee" turns out to be "down in the dungeons just peaches and me"!!. I thought that was quite a bad dungeon to be in .
  4. "And now to the Nottingham Forest manager starting his 10th year in charge....." "So, that's another major competition won by this classy England football team"
  5. Someone mentioned British Bulldog-Our version was everyone bar one would line up on one side of the playground and the 'one' had to stop people running across to the other side. Obviously, at first only one person would get caught so then it was 2 versus the rest. Eventually you would have 10 or 15 trying to stop the last few crossing from side to side. Bit like rugby but on concrete! Don't suppose it's played much now coz by time you've put on your protective helmet, knee and elbow pads, done a risk assessment and found 5 adults to supervise playtime would be over!!
  6. Oh, is that all the tax I'm paying this month!
  7. Excellent, a huge motorway hold up-I was ready for a rest Mmm, the train is late-gives me more time to relax on this comfortable bench
  8. Aaah, the press-at least you can rely on them to only print the truth.
  9. "Politicians, there's a group of people you can look up to"
  10. "I hope we get some decent rain this year"
  11. Talking of fun, isn't the world a better place now we have lots of health and safety regs
  12. I don't know why we don't bring back the Poll Tax, it worked so well last time!
  13. 1-Piers Morgan, he's someone to be admired. 2-Oh no, pay day again.
  14. Although this idea for a topic is stolen from another magazine I thought the good folk on Nottstalgia would come up with some crackers . To get the ball rolling I thought something from Alex Ferguson "The opposition played really well and the ref/linesmen were excellent-however we were poor". Closer to home, person selling house to potential buyer "Oh no that's far too much money, let me drop the asking price a bit".
  15. Thanks for the link, yes that's the place-bar downstairs and 60ft 'lounge' upstairs. I also remember the very posh toilet !!
  16. Does anyone remember this place, think it was in Hockley. We would go to the Salutation, Flying Horse, then Frodos. They didn't sell beer just wine, cider and my choice-Pernod!! We would finish at the Sal, I can still hear 'Benny and the Jets' and 'bluebird' blasting out, then off up to Mount St bus station to get the last bus home-11.10 weekdays or 11.45 Saturdays!!
  17. When a group of us were lighting up cigarettes it was always considered bad luck to accept 'third light'. Allegedly originated during the First World War when a sniper would see the first light, aim on the second and fire on the third.
