  1. Only one draw. Vernon will be pleased

  2. I once saw Leicester beat West Ham 5-4 – What a game that was. I love that last but one picture, it could have come straight from my dad’s scrap book!

    • I think if you love a team, you never forget a match like that. I was at the Baseball Ground to watch Derby draw 4-4 with Bobby Charlton, George Best, Denis Law and co, and I will never forget it!

      • For many seasons (1995-2000)ish I used to go to the Baseball Ground and sit in the cheap seats at one of the corner flags. It was below pitch level and freezing cold.

  3. Most of these look like Rugby scores! I thought they might be record defeats, but then I saw one draw. You have me stumped John!

  4. Makes me wish I followed the game more closely.

    • I think it’s just what you are brought up to like. I quite often watch American Football when it comes on our TV screens, and I love the skill and athleticism of all the players, But I don’t really mind who wins….and that’s not a real fan!!

      • I know what you mean. I always need someone to root for. I’ve always admired the stamina of your football players, but it was never on tv steady enough for me to follow any particular team.

  5. Hmmmm …. Seeing I really no next to nothing about your type of football, I have no idea what seems different about the scores. LOL ❤
