Impressive les, in comparison I have managed a paltry 18 of those you have listed,can't think of any others off the top of my head. It shows you just how many clubs have moved on.

Surprised the dell or ninian park didn't make it onto the list les. Very impressive all the same



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

We haven't played Southampton since the late 70's Woz and I wasn't going away regularly by then and we haven't played Cardiff since the mid 80's. I can remember the last season we played them though when we won 4-2 there and beat them 6-3 at home. I had started to go to away games by then but for some reason I never went to Cardiff.

The one that I did miss which I regret is that I never managed to see Town at was Maine Road,

See what you mean les. Went to ninian a few times while at uni. Proper old school ground. Rough area though!!

Yeah, it is. For some reason I was thinking that Wycombe had moved to another new ground.
