#2963400 First game you attended?

Posted by alan30058 on 22 July 2014 - 09:54 AM

My first game ever was as a young lad of 10 and the game was Feathersone Rovers at home in the cup 2nd round

( February 1961)
Donning my new Wires scarf and armed with a massive wooden rattle( ex Air Raid Warden's) I was ready for my indoctrination.Just as I was setting off my Dad shouted to me "Don't forget to look out for the number 2 winger Bevan he's the best player that has ever played for us" wow that was some statement and I couldn't wait to see this super hero !
Well here I was at Wilderspool and the atmosphere was electric as Wire entered the arena to the roar of a packed crowd.

Then shock horror I realised Bevan wasn't playing but instead some old man who was bald with no teeth ,thin as a rake and swathed in more bandages than an Egyptian mummy was on the wing instead.!
Oh well not to worry I watched the game and was still captivated for life with my beloved Wire.
Even though we lost 13-10.
I got home and told my Dad all about the game and how we probably got beat because Bevan never played and I then described this old man who had taken his place.
Suddenly I felt a clip around my ear as Dad told me that WAS Brian Bevan !!!
Happy days happy memories.

People are quick to knock the Challenge Cup but it still means a lot for smaller clubs to be able to test themselves. Seems like the fans had a great day out too.



Well at least most of em  :drag:

#2825344 PremierSports coverage so far- Thoughts

Posted by alan30058 on 03 November 2013 - 01:41 AM

The commentary tonight and last night is a welcome change from hearing someone bellowing cliches into the mike all the way through the match. I am not mentioning any names!

I have now watched all the games so far played and have had absolutely no problem.

My only complaint is that I am being spoilt by the sensible and informed style of commentary and now dread having to return next season to the Eddie Waring style showmanship of Eddie & Stevo  icon_redface.gif

Both the BBC & Premier commentaries are a welcome breath of fresh air. I think We've had enough of the Sky hype commentary these days ... where everything seems to be controversial and every referee decision is questioned.


Well done Premier(and beeb) !
