Ah the good old days. When you could leave your leave your bike outside and it would still be there when the match finished. All kindly coppers had to do was to stand round in groups idly chatting.
No one ever got mugged. No one one ever got burgled. No one ever got assaulted. No one ever got stabbed. In fact crime is a product of the 21st century (or so some people would have you believe :| ).

That Maine Road picture could have been taken when we went up there early 80s it still looked the same, without the scarves women.
