cheers for that,my old head, talking about age 72 next week. probley one of those games i was 3 parts gone !! great player to wacth though.He did score twice v us for Oxford in 1983/84 when they were promoted. Never played for us v Oxford. (at least not a League or Cup game)
That was Reading, had a few set toos with the locals.Was it Oxford or Swindon where a 'wall fan got run over by a couple of black lads and it all kicked off in a shopping centre after the match? About 30 minutes later about 40 of us had about 200 of them on top of us throwing them metal poles, that used to hold rope up in road works, like spears.
I was never the type that looked for trouble but following 'wall over the years their was always times you would get caught up in it.
It was always a good day out. Except the day when that twat joey beachamp ran the length of the pitch to fire one in from 20+ years to put us 3-0 down just after half time. I am as nicked that day. Spent the night. 1990 I thinki always liked going to oxford years ago , in their end and the meet by the crossroads v them. one of the best matchs is when we had george lawrence,playing for us and they couldnt catch him,a great player. i was nicked there once and put in hospital all in one day,the pubswere good and the birds were blinding
