I remember flying over the top of them with Chelsea Headhunters in hot pursuit

(Edited that was the game Ray Wilkins ripped us to pieces)

I remember steam from the Lyndhurst breeze block bogs in the winter.

I used to stand in the Mayflower when I was a lad I'm pretty sure the railings went right around the ground. Used to get passed down the front if we weren't there early.

What happened to the regular roof dwellers. There was always a few on the roof in big games.

I seem to remember someone falling through the roof? Did I dream it 'twas years ago.

My dad who didn't like football took me to every home game. Good memories

Ha ha It’s Me, well half of me anyway bottom right half in shot, not sure what game it was but it must have been about 1967/8 with a school friend David Murray.
Happy days when you could walk around the terraces on all four sides of the ground.

He was alive enough last year to talk to the local press.
