    I remember going to town with my parents and seeing crowds of blokes outside radio rentals watching the results on the vidiprinter on final score

    I hope you did your civic duty and reported them as licence fee dodgers.

    I haven't been in there for years, soon as they changed it to a poncey irish themed pub we knocked it on the head. It was, up until then, a traditional working man's pub, proper spit and sawdust, a lovely pint and great characters in there. They changed it to Kitty Flynn's, I used to know Kitty when she was landlady of the Royal Oak in Roath, lovely lady, one in a million, nice touch by Brains to name a pub after her but they ruined the place by tarting it up.

    Never knew the original pub as I think it was shut down when I started drinking in town (early 90s). It’s not bad these days though and has become my usual Friday after work pub. All craft beer, cask ale and ciders mind so you’re fucked if you prefer lager.

    Used to do this when I was a teenager hanging about town after junior football. Would go to Living department store to call the scores up on teletext one of their TVs.

    The boy who worked in the Electrical department was a City fan and turned a blind eye to it.

    I remember the 82/83 season, I went Penarth - Oxford- Penarth for i think 80p. Paid for Penarth to Cardifff.40p Got to Oxford without paying. Got herded on to train at Oxford non-stop to Cardiff on what resembled a cattle train, and then had to pay Cardiff to Penarth.

    When we went to Leeds in 74 for the cup match, two lads got on the football special train using Number 6 cigarette coupons, they just flashed them quickly and were let through.

    3/4G in the stadium is an odd thing. Always slow as hell for Saturday 3pm match days but if the match is at a different time then it works fine.

    I reckon they reduce the capacity of the nearest mast at 3pm on a Saturday so that the local area doesn't get overloaded...

    I used to particularly enjoy telling (singing to) the referee that his paternal ancestry was in dispute. It's how I developed my perfect diction.

    Don't hear that one anymore,
    "where's yer father, where's yer father,
    where's yer father referee?
    haven't got one, never had one, you're a bastard referee".

    90's football was crazy. The bottom leagues were insane looking back. The pitches didn't help. The old adage of the lower down the leagues you went the longer the throw ins were was alive and well.
