    Just had to say thanks for starting my Friday morning off with a trip into the past. I watched the first two videos with my morning coffee and I will catch up with the others later today. In 1971 I was 18 and never missed a Tottenham home game, so I was almost certainly in the crowd for the mud bath game against Leeds. Standing on packed terraces for a couple of hours, sometimes soaking wet and freezing cold was the only way to spend Saturday afternoons. I’ve been living in the US for over 20 years now and I’d almost forgotten what those days were like, but this helped me remember!

      Andy, I definitely remember those cold and wet Saturday afternoons and evenings too. For me it was in the early 80s, but I remember coming home and my clothes being sopping wet, and peeling off my socks in front of the fire and my mum supplying a cup of tea to warm me up.
