I was there

Well, akshully I was in a pub in Bootham, York, when our boys beat Germany 50 years ago. And believe it or not there was a telly, very small, b & w but a telly nevertheless. A group of maybe 20 enthusiasts huddled round it and cheered for England.

Tonite, they meet again. In colour. Without Kenneth Wolstenholme (sp?). Not really a friendly. See you there.

    Not being a girly ball fan (although in 1966 soccer was a proper game) I was working at my student vacation job as a salesman in the local Halfords branch. Hardly anyone came in but we did tune the car radio demonstration module into the radio commentary.

    One of the darkest days for football. A goal given that didn’t cross the line then a pitch invasion before the final whistle. They should have been banned for 50 years.

    You’re all waiting for a smiley thing. You’re not getting one.
