  1. I was there.
    I also have the programme (back in England in at my brother’s house).
    It’s boxed with all my other programmes and kept out of daylight so it doesn’t yellow.
    Discoloured (and folded, torn) programmes are worth far less than a one in mint condition.

    maybe a dodgy scan?…

    Good lineup by the way. For games when we could afford to attack more freely, arguably our best. Though your namesake replacing Charlie against sterner opposition was fine with me.
