Topic: 1st goal at ER or your place if your other persuasion.

14 year old . Older liverpool fans running a coach October 73 . Mixed bus , 40 Liverpool and 4 Leeds. Me and a mate from school who said he supported Leeds, so talked him into coming. Came to Everton away with me same season and probably never seen Leeds live since.
Didn’t have a scarf, weren’t available in Wrexham in them days , saying that don’t see em now either. So straight in old club shop to purchase one. Latter that season got it nicked at Wolves FA cup. Into Gelderd end , atmosphere was electric.
Corner at the scratching shed and Mick Jones scores 1-0 win . I was hooked.

To stand aside is to take sides.

Really can't remember. My first game was as a 3 year old in 72 and we won. Still blows my mind I saw Leeds in 72.

Same as harvest  first game I was four or five also in 1972. I do remember Mick Jones was my favourite player so maybe he scored.

Paul Madeley, 1966, against ManU at Elland Road. We won 3-1. I was nine years old. Had football based anxiety ever since. hmm
