Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Maybe they did, Mike, but my grandad would never have afforded a seat. We can never know, sadly. This getting older malarkey is a bit of a bugger...

Despite the proximity, I only ever went to Old Trafford the once, to see Burnley getting slaughtered 6-0 on a mudbath. Because of family bias, I went mostly to Gigg Lane, occasionally to Turf Moor and Ewood and rarely anywhere else. Good times, though, and a damn sight more affordable than today...
