The Lower League Thread

Recommended Posts

chavy, I thought I'd help keep the lower league thread on the first page with a mention of Tranmere Rovers (the first proper club I ever watched way back in about 1955) can't really claim any greatness for them, but I always keep an affectionate eye on them from a distance. I see once again they are currently 2nd (In Division 1) but it's early days and no doubt will slip down afew notches as the season progresses.

Hey Ken, Coincidently I met another Tranmere supporter a few weeks ago whilst in Kanchanaburi. This guy was a tube driver in London ! but was a true die hard Tranmere fan through & through.

1955 Ken :D wow... I bet Prenton Park was a sight to behold in those days eh?? :o

You better believe it.

Dad never took me again, in fact he only went under suffurance, my Mum made him as it was my 8th birthday and I was football/sports mad.

Next birthday Mum took me to watch the Toffees play Sheff Wd at Goodison Pk. not a fan of either but like a good game and became a Man Utd fan first off watching a cup final between Aston Villa And Man.U., only for our keeper (Ray Wood I think) got his jaw broken - then I was deeply affected by Munich aircrash - then totally pissed off the following cup final when Nat Lofthouse (Bolton Wanderers) barged our keeper over the line - all was fair in those days.

:D:D I tell you what Ken, I bet Nat Lofthouse & co wouldn't know what to do now days if they were playing, I remember watching old footage of games where it seemed to be open season on goalies....made me shudder just watching it.

First game I ever went to was Notts County V Cambridge !! My uncle took me down & I think the experience of the dullest 90 minutes in memory forced me accross the river to support the incredible journey of following Forest through the heady days of Brian Clough to todays sorry state. :D

I took a break during the disasterous reign of David Platt & followed non league & lower league clubs. That was probably the best thing I did to see how the game is at the other end of the scale.

I was lucky to have had a Mum who was a good sport and a Grandad ( her dad) who took me to watch Hitchen, with an up bringing like that one is happy just to watch a good game. Even now if I see the kids on the beach here having a kick about I'm right in there roaring encouragement. It's a great game after all.

1 - 1 with Huddersfield lastnight, a bit down heated we didn't get the 3 points but better than a poke in the eye I suppose.

Get used to it. It's all pretty harmless fun in here and lot of banter. A few sometimes dip in and take offence, but this is the best forum in TV. :D

Ken, quite a few of us on this forum know each other or know quite a bit about each other. Do you want to introduce yourself. Like, i'm intrigued how a guy from Sweden ended up supporting Ipswich :o
