Having watched football for a long time, things have undoubtedly improved for the better, but there are some things (gone for ever) which I miss....................

Small boys sitting on the wall at matches
Paying at the turnstiles
Not having to buy tickets in advance
Not having to listen on the phone for details about the forth coming Millwall match
Paying the same admission price as that for a pint
Friday Night games
Being in the spread after the Friday night match and decide what match to go to on the Saturday
Leaving home still not knowing what match I would go to
Standing on a huge terraces which now that are all seated seem so small
Turning up at virtually any match without a ticket but knowing you would get in if you got their early enough
Watching two live matches in a day
Waiting for the Saturday night Classified sports paper with all the results tables etc
Waiting up North for their equivalent papers Green Un. Pink Un
That first pint studying the classified

I'm sure their are lots more
