4 for me. Starting with the Newport match in '79. They used to give us sone tough matches. The 3-0 cup win in '88 before we lost the Q/F & that cup dream was over. Super Paul Walsh in '93 v's the Leicester scum & finally, oh my God that long ago, '99, seems like yesterday, with my best mate Dave, to that great comeback 3-3 with Swindon. These memories just make feel really old (43) & see where my life has gone!!!

Five for me back to 65. Interestingly the 1974 game with Wednesday was on a Wednesday afternoon!! Because of the three day week so it was time off work to see that one, remember game being not worth it - not had a weekday afternoon kick off since.

Chix will have sent at least two birthday cards today with Kemp and Marinello celebrating.
