Thought I would start a thread which with luck wont descend into posters attacking each other  or name calling .

Have you ever been caught on camera and seen on TV while in the process of following /supporting Town

Mine was as a 11yr old back in 1976 with a freshly broken arm I was a ball boy (who then sat on a bench near the dug out and was just required to go retrieve balls if they was hit over the stands and out the ground ).....Town was playing Crystal Palace at home and it was televised on the Sunday highlights program and  a number of times as play was around the center of the pitch you could see in the back ground a very fresh faced ball boy waving his arm about in plaster ......if I remember correctly Town lost the match 1-2 with palace scoring in the 1st and 90th minute and town scoring in the 45th minute

Different sport.
My wife and I spent a few days with friends in Leeds, to coincide with the test match.
My friend and I had front row seats.
We were watching the highlights at night, when a boundary ball came our way. Right in front of the picture was my friend with an empty seat next to him.
With that my wife said 'where were you'.
If she had thought first before balling me out, she would have realised, I was getting the beers in.

FYI Ilkley.

Was that the arm I broke for you

IIRC Peter Taylor scored both Palace goals

The Game at Palace a couple of years ago, apparently my mate and I were featured heavily in the TV coverage as we were on the front row.

I used to be in St John, so was regularly seen around the perimeter or carrying someone off

Also a few years ago my wife and I were seen on Mastermind semi finals sat behind John Humphreys

When I was a little boy
I asked my daddy what would i be
would I be United, would i be Leeds
Here's what he said to me

Oh Grimsby Grimsby
Whatever will be will be
You'll follow then faithfully
Oh Grimsby Grimsby

Yes in 1992 (I think) when Town were at Plymouth, we won 2.1, I was in the Royal Navy at the time (based in Plymouth) and the highlights were on the local tv station later, it zoomed in on the mariners fans and there I was haha


Grimsby and proud!

Back in our Division One days we played Luton at home on TV. I used to sit in the Main Stand right behind the old directors box and at the end.

Mike Newell was Luton manager and stood next to me. The camera zoomed in on him and I was live on Sky Sports.

That's a coincidence. I was on TV in that very same game.  I was 11 at the time too and was caught on camera with my best mate waving like mad at the camera as Crystal Palace took a corner at The Pontoon End. Been on TV quite a few times in the crowd over the years at various games on highlights and live games.

Yeah, I was at that game too. drunk it down with rain most of the game and the 100 or so Town fans were doing the conga around the away end signing "Singing In The Rain". I think that was the game when Super Clive scored his first ever goal for us and there was a rare goal for Mark Lever that night. Happy days.

My wife and I was behind the goal away to Sheffield Wednesday in the 80's.

When we got home and watched the highlights on TV  we could see ourselves several times .
