Important Anniversary.

Recommended Posts

Funny how the football results become a diary of your life.

Exactly 49 years ago this evening I watched Match of the Day for the first time. 20 November 1971 - Arsenal 5 Wolves 1 and West Ham 0 Man City 2.

I couldn't sleep and my dad let me get out bed and watch it with him. I didn't realise at the time that I could stay in bed, go back to sleep and watch the games on Youtube 49 years later. (Sorry for the spoilers above if anyone wants to do so - the Wolves game is a cracking game, played in a blizzard).

 

Earlier in the day we'd been at Ayresome Park watching Boro beat Orient 1-0.

My Dad took me to that Orient game, from memory it wasn't a classic but by that stage the Boro virus had already taken hold!
