    There were a few great games/days out along the way tbf. The first couple/few seasons in the championship were enjoyable.

    “Stans” make anyone else cringe?

    I would believe anything was possible as after Clive Allen's goal I made a secret pact with the devil that if we won the cup he could do anything to the club. Apologies to future supporters.

    It's 1961 and we've just lost 2-1 at home to King's Lynn. If someone came up to you and forecast the future of the club, what would your reaction be?

    Let's just sum it up in a few words

    Jimmy Hill
    Division 3 champions
    George Hudson
    Sky Blue revolution
    Ronnie Rees
    Division 2 champions
    George Curtis
    Bayern Munich
    Cyrille Regis
    FA Cup winners
    35 years at the top level

    It's just life's ups and downs

    Kings Lynn was my first ever game. Jimmy Hill in the stands waiting to take over. What about if he saw us lose in the Cup to a non league team, and thought sod this I'll go elsewhere ? Glad he didn't.
