Can I please change my answer to number 6

We both enjoy a footie bet, usually we take at least one opposing team in a bet without knowing ...leads to silence when one or the other scores though.

Loving the answers and footie ones are certainly reminding me of some great times.

Will try answer my own questions to keep this going :-

1. What is your most memorable Leeds Utd match?
Young boy at the FA cup final in 1972, will never forget that day.

2. Tell us about any funny or strange incident that has happened to you at a match.
As a young person that hadn't been driving long I decided to take the car to an away match at Forest.
Stopped at a Pub outside Nottingham for lunch and when setting off the brakes seized, had just got onto a roundabout.
In a panic I jacked it up only for the Jack to snap while car was in the air.
Was causing major tailbacks so decided to try drive the car off the jack, so threw the broken parts in the boot and as I closed it realised that's where the keys were. :oops:
A local came over and was a great help removing the back seat to get to the keys.
Eventually got it back on the Pub carpark to find was an issue with the Clutch. The helpful bloke said he worked at the local garage and we could book it in which I agreed to (swapped phone numbers, home not mobiles back then).
Left the car with him and actually hitched a lift into Nottingham on a Milk Float just arriving in time for kick off.
Got a lift back after match on a coach with the York Branch on as new most of the lads on it.
Had to Hitch Hike to Nottingham a few days later to pick up the car and pay for the repairs.

Moral of the Story - Don't buy a Austin Allegro.
