You can see a very young me with my Dad and brother in the following matchday programme in the background to an action shot of Steele's goal.

That's the one, my lad was 8 at the time and loved it, I enjoyed the game but the state of the ground shocked me (hadn't been for 12 years). Lucky for us a certain wealthy gentleman stepped up not long after.I would have been there but had to look it up (getting old...). September 1990.
Went 1-0 down, were still losing 1-0 after 35 minutes. 3-1 up at half time!
I was always jealous of those in the John ireland - my dad used to send me to the front of the south bank to stand near/on the fence; you’d never think of doing that with a 7/8 year old now .I started going in 1988. The ground was atrocious looking back but:
a) I didn't know any better
b) Even on TV, loads of the other grounds (even in the top flight) didn't look a whole lot better, not that there were that many live televised games. Old Wembley looked like a palace but we all know it was a shithole that stank of piss
The first four years of my football attendance were sat in a stand that was 30-40 yards from the pitch, surreal when you think about it but meh, helps when you've got a bloke knocking in 30+ goals on his own every season.
That was excellent, some goals I had forgotten.
A very strange way to do a season review video (loved dear old Mark Kendall though). Illustrates pretty nicely what an absolute kip we played in...
