Bit of an uplifting thread

Don't really want to think of the state of the club at the moment, far too depressing and I'm sure many of you feel the same way at times.

So with that in mind, what was the moment where you fell in love with the club, be it a match, a certain player, a certain moment in a game, something that happened on the terraces...well you get the idea

First time I ever went. Stood in the Scoreboard as a little kid listening to some pissed up old codger (Old Tommy) singing Little White Bull (very badly). The smell of the breweries mixing with the fag smoke and the general mayhem that two hours in the Scoreboard brought.

The thing is - we were worse then - far worse. We used to pray that we would one day be in the top flight.

My first game

A boring 0-0 but i was enthralled. The par boiled burger and bovril. The noise of the fans and the sheer size of st james park.

Most of all though i remember the shock of hearing my dad swear for the very first time. Something about that fucking useless lot. What goes around..,

I made him leave the pub (the darnell) at 12.30 to get to the next home game when the gates opened with my little cut off of carpet to sit on the concrete crush barrier.

Happy days
