colin, yes you have made your views very clear n what was quite an intresting read. No i had never heard that story before but it sounds like typical shankly, i would love to here anymore stories you have to tell and no i could never see rafa doing that. The oldest red i have in my life is my brother (32) but as my dad has never been into football neither of us ever went to a game when we were younger. My first game was when i was 14 or 15, we beat portsmouth 3-0 in the houllier era and i won £14 on owen scoring first in the 2nd half...it was a good night out (the match was on a wednesday). My sisters boyfriend (who is from lym) took me to that game and he said that even when he was yonger (he's early 30's) he could get on the bus and go to anfield and pay at the gate so i think it must be a relativelty modern thing (15 - 20 years) that the prices have become so extortionate that the avergae working class man can no longer afford to go to the game.
As i said colin, i would love to here any stories you or any other older reds have as i am always looking to learn more and more about our esteemed club.
