  1. They were dark days but the right decision was made at the time and we ended up with a guy who at least knew how to run a football club. Just feel now that this is a long drawn out descent into oblivion.
  2. Watling Street - Dartford 1921 to 1992 and Maidstone United as a Football League venue 1988 to 1992.
  3. Been watching Treadstone; based on the Robert Ludlum Bourne novels. Almost impossible to follow but we'll see it through to the end. Not surprised it was cancelled after one series.
  4. Scraley Road - Heybridge Swifts. Another one I've been to back in the days when City and Heybridge were both in the Isthmian Premier.
  5. Rookery Hill - East Thurrock United. A neat little ground in Corringham, just south of Basildon, which I've been to a couple of times in supporting Chelmsford City.
  6. Peel Park - Accrington Stanley 1919 to 1962. The final picture is from their last ever game there.
  7. Love the way Paris Police 1900 has been filmed; has that very slight sepia tint to it which gives it a real period feel. And the scenery etc is absolutely superb.
  8. You can sense the excuse for the latest poor performance and result already.
  9. Just take a browse through that guys videos. Quite a few from late 50's/early 60's on there.
  10. Never seen the "butcher's apron" stripes on film before....
  11. I'd have Bob Bolder in goal....despite his occasional gaffes. And no place for Fred McIver? By the way, Jim McCalliog left in 1969 so he wouldn't be in a 70's line up anyway.
  12. The Everton game was the only one I could think of but I'm not sure it's correct. According to Keith Farnsworth's book Everton scored first but we quickly equalised only to be 1-5 down at the interval. We then pulled the four goals back in the second half despite having a player sent off.
  13. New Writtle Street - Chelmsford City 1939 to 1997. More nostalgia corner for me. Moving to Chelmsford in 1985 I immediately started watching City games and this was their home at the time. The black and white pic shows it as it was back then with covered terracing, affectionately known as The Barn, down one side of the pitch and the small cover over the Wolseley end goal that was absolutely electric for Monday night matches as the roof was so low. The Barn was partially destroyed in the infamous storm in October 1987 and had to be removed entirely leading to the second pic which shows the bare patch of land where it had been on the right. The pic also shows the initial work that was done in turning the ground round by 90 degrees and using the land between it and the cricket ground for a hotel complex which never materialised. And the third pic shows the view from the Wolseley end towards the main stand with the end itself shown in the fourth. Some great memories!
