45 YEARS AGO TODAY! ***GROOND NUMBER 004 !

Updated 'high noon bells' Saturday 9th November 2013
HIGHBURY ***AZ IT LOOKED IN 1968

It iz 45 years ago tooday since aa forst saw The Toon play in London against The Arse @ their old Highbury groond and it waz aalso Remembrance Sunday week az well!
By pure coincidence aa will find meesel back in norf Landan this Remembrance Sunday when we play Sporz @ White Hart Lane.

Back in 1968 Harold Wilson waz Labour Prime minister, and Ted Heath hiz Tory opponent. The Beatles and The Rollin' Stones were in their heyday and it waz anly two bob to get into a futbaall match (10p! kids---20p adults!) and programmes were sixpence (less than 3p!)

Beer waz less than two bob a pint (although aa waz too young to drink back then!) and yoo could buy a packet of fish n chips for 'one and six'! (7p!)

Below iz mee archive match report from that day when aa travelled doon to 'the smoke' for the forst time by the supporters club bus for the princely sum of 25 shillings! <(mee finx!?) (£1:25p!)

"Aa memories!" <("quick!---pass mee zimmer frame!")
