The 80s


Cobra

Recommended Posts

What do Dees remember about the 80s? I'm thinking about stuff that doesn't exist nowadays.

I remember the old clock at the DC Keays end. I remember buying fanzines at the top of the Hulltoon. I remember walking up the old steps. I remember being thrust against the crush barriers in the Derry when Dundee scored and seeing f**k all.

Bringing yer UB40 to the game, being able to buy vintage programmes beneath the main stand , the ABC board to check half time scores that were located in the match day programme, waiting In the queue for a pie at the back of the provie whist still able to watch the game and the smell of the urinals as you entered the provie rd /sandeman street turnstiles .

Classy.😄 What was your strategy if you needed a number two? 

I think it was something of a similar routine Barfly. But you got someone else tae hud & streech it...In case ye dribbled on yir breeks:chaplin:

In those days; less inhibitions and more of a "togetherness"  No social distancing then ... But most did wear Facemasks as a precaution :ph34r:

Gloves, Wellies (hats even) were Optional. But those of us with a bit foresight & of a more cautious nature and less forthcoming wore all 3 :excited:

Maybe I was ahead of my time Gedee. I was social distancing long before the term came into common use. You never knew when 'Helmut Schoen' would make a surprise appearance in your vicinity. Twenty metres was the recommended safe distance due to the unpredictable nature of the 'flash floods' that invariably followed.😄

Guid Stuff Barfly ... In these serious times, in both the Health & Fitba front, I think we are awe in need o a wee laugh) :lol2:

And to think the modern fans & supporters complain aboot the lack of "facilities" in today's toilet. In my younger days,

the place tae dae a pee for everyone wis ahent the Stand. On Big Match days. It wis like the swirling watters o' the Isla

or the Dichty in Full Spate. But as I said in them days, there was a sense of camaraderie between those who wore the 

Dark Blue. Many a time when travelling ahent the stand at half time (change ends) you could barely get passed when

The Peein' Mob were in full flow ... It was a case o' a hot cup o' tea in one hand, a hot peh in the ither hand. And then yir

mate if he'd a free hand took a firm grip o "yir thingy" while ye munched awa. Aye we made a lot o new freends then:chaplin:
