I have to confess, I don't think I've been to any of those games in the 70's, 80's or 90's. Looking at the results I don't regret that.

Yes some pretty dire results in the last 50 years. Only one for me, Palace at home in those dark days with Vegetable & Fckwick.

Opps, my memory is slipping. Actually Jim was manager. He was of course about to be replaced by Fckwick.

Oxford and Reading away and not one home game!! NO win for 55 years - glad we are not playing today.
