All Fool's Day and no home game between 1972 and 2002. Me I was at three between 67 and 72.

nothing on this day again for me!

I went to the Burnely game; magnificent atmosphere and we were on our way! The Fulham game was great and I got home to watch the usual vindictive, spitefull Chris Coleman post match interview about how his team were the better side and played the better football. Strangely I don't think he's worked since he left "the cottagers"; and they mostly are.
russellm
Yes, just the Burnley game for me. Remember listening to the Fulham match on the radio & sreaming as we continued our great escape.

russ, coleman went to work in spain for a while but is now the manager of coventry.
pompeyrug
Rug - Coleman had a few months at Real Sociedad too after a recommendation from John Toshack - welshman who had also managed the Spanish club.
eastneydave
thats the one, i could not think off the top of my head what the spanish side was...
