    OK, had a bit of a sort out last week & came across things I'd not seen for years.
    One of which was my 1985 Milk Cup final ticket stub. I notice the price was the princely sum of £5.

    Any of you older guys that were there at Wembley in '73 remember the price?

    When I started going to games circa '78, we were getting in the u16's gate for £1.20.
    By the time I was 16 it was £1.60 in. We always managed to get served in the Gluepot Bar in the Roker Hotel.
    Pint of Strongarm 49p & 20 Gold Mark 99p. Those blue Mini vans with the white backs on them, serving hotdogs at 30p a time.

    Was in the Roker the other week with a mate to watch the QPR game & was disappointed to find that the Gluepot is now an Italian restaurant.
    Happy, (& not so happy), days.

    When I was at Wembley in '85, there was beer on sale during the whole game at £1 a pint at which we were all disgusted, lol.

    It really is shameful how expensive football is nowadays. Granted, I was not around at the cheaper times and I have no idea of ticket prices in the 90's as I never bought them <laugh> however it seems to have been far more affordable.

    attended the old firm game at ibrox on the day of the tragerty ,with my uncle geodie as a treat ,as my father and us returned to glasgow for the new year.
    i can remember that he got me a pie which i think was about a bob (shilling)we didnt know about the deaths until we got back to drumchapple.
    also remember nearly every one had a bottle in there pockets.

    went to the last home internatinal eng v n irerland still got the scarf ,programme and ticket stub, cant be bothered to go upstairs and find out the prices i paid.
    dont know why i got the scarf because i support scotland £3 i think.


    i also had two fa cup final tickets for man utd v newcastle which i sold to two norwegian guys before the game in a pub for £600.
    these guys had already seen man utd win the uro cup ,the league and this was the treble game, they didnt bat an eyelid at the price, in fact the wad of ash he produced from his pocket could have bought my house, happy days

    In 1973 a SAFC programme was 10p ! the Final programme cost 15p and a ticket for the final was £1. The 1937 F A cup final cost 5/- and the programme cost 6d.
