A weight-loss sub-thread of The Long Green Ribbon Thread.
That's a sad day for me birkmyre. I was only 16 and my friends had got me a ticket for the game. My parents said No, even though their dads would have been going too and kept an eye out for me. I watched the game on TV and as they lifted the trophy my Dad said I could have gone if I'd pushed him hard enough
Vixx: Opps, sorry ! We were in tunnel end.
It was agreat experience for me going to Wembley My dad and grandfather (and lots of uncles) had been at the old Wembley, usually watching England v Scotland games. My grandfather went from mid 1920s to mid 1960s excluding WW2 obviously.
I've been on the new Wembley Stadium tour, but would have loved to go to the old Wembley because of the history of the place. I stay at the Premier Inn there when I travel to London
I felt I was on hallowed territory visiting Wembley that day.I'd heard so many stories of the' Wembley weekend' trips
I'll bet they were legendary
The only time I've been to Wembley for a game was the 1986 FA Cup final against Everton. We had just won the League and we won the game 3-1. It was great travelling down together, even after the game, we had a lot of good banter (I was still too young to drink). I was up in the gods with my mates and it was amazing.
I was at the Wembley Premier Inn in February when the Carling Cup Final was being played. (Remember lfc ) and the atmosphere was electric!
Vixx; Sure were and my old grandfather loved going down 'memory lane' telling me them.
It's a shame the Home Nations fixtures had to be stopped
True. I went to Home Inernational games at Hampden from 1976-87 but I think it'd run its course to be honest.
They started saving for the next Wembley weekend 2 years away almost as soon as they'd come back London.
LOL - and why not? I love going up to Scotland! I can see why people might like to make the trip south too!
Good luck RLTW with the GSR today.
Morning all. Hope the GSR went well RTLW.
Hope everyone had a good weekend. I went walking with a few friends as there was no hockey match on Saturday. It was a beautiful day and the views of the welsh hills were amazing. Also enjoyed walking through all the leaves on the ground.
Enjoyed the football yesterday but not all the controvasy afterwards - it depresses me a bit. Nothing like that ever happens in hockey or rugby, people have mutual respect for each other and the officials. Bring in the sin bin.
how did that gsr go I wonder, I did that last year, loved it
Agreed DD - football is getting more notorious for the off-field stuff than the football
I was thinking I might consider GSR for next year, but there are so many marathons on in October.... :S
GSR went well thanks. Very chilly but dry. Had lots of walkie bits in the second half but was pleased to discover I had managed a PB by just under a minute Really thought I should have managed to keep going better than that but never mind. Still a PB. Just need to crack the 10Kpb and I'll have the full set
Go for it RLTW!
Doing one on Nov 25th and another on 9th Dec. Looking forward to giving it a bash.
Just in for a nosey.
nice one rltw!
