Gay Meadow, Shrewsbury. If you could look over the wall at the other side of the pitch you may see a bloke on the river  in a big floating basket trying to catch footballs. 

A coracle

See if this was a Carry On film:

Peter Butterworth: "they used to get the balls back using on of them little boats"

Sid James: "That's coracles..."

PB: "no, it's true..."

Barbara Windsor saunters past.

SJ: "I'd paddle out to retrieve those two bouncing beauties....yak, yak, yak...."

Iirc, the other semi was spurs v wolves.

Out of all of those teams Ipswich were by far the better team at the time, can't remember the other 3 being owt special at the time.

Crush at Leppings Lane Spurs v Wolves match. No lessons learned.

2 league titles in 100 years, 7 league titles in 12 years

I meant there seems to be a misconception that city had a poor support and no history till the oil money came in.

Obviously the oil money has bought success and a shit load of 'fans' with it. But they were hardly Bournemouth.
