Thought i'd put this on a separate thread.

I must say that the story by Toronto Exciled (s**t in the plastic cup lobbed over the fence) is a peach and maybe i'm sick but i break out in fits of laughter every time i read it.

The last game at burnley had a few funny moments:

The half hearted pitch invasion led by a dwarf in a fake burberry cap laugh.gif

The lad in the corner of the Bob Lord stand who was baiting the Rovers fans and riot police for most of the match finally got his comeuppance when he was hit full on in the head by a coin thrown from the Rovers section, even the police started to laugh. Not that i condone this sort of behaviour but he wasn't even watching the match but stood on the fence shouting and swearing in our general direction.

A poster on this site who got on the coach rather gingerly and we thought he'd been attacked. It emerged he'd decided to take a souvenir home, a seat from the ground to commemorate the win. It was destined for his living room wall along with his match tickets.

I remember the lad walking into the lamp post. How the coach full of us laughed!

Another funny moment was Ronnie Jepson walking back towards the tunnel after warming up. He tried to do a "look at how cool I am" spit and managed to gob all down his tracksuit. Class.

a certain manager wearing tights...

also, who can forget Andy "the padiham poacher" Payton walking off dejected, and getting abused by the travelling fans.

The look on his face, he couldnt take it, and made that pathetic "up yours" gesture!

The padiham drunk.

Sam you can do better than that surely.

You weren't stood on the steps of the cricket club for the game at yours in the manx cup 1987 were you? Trying in vein to throw something at the Rovers fans only to lose your footing and fall down the steps laugh.gif

Go on it was you wasn't it?

Remember that SG194? though SL was going to p*** himself laugh.gif

Just looking at the inbreds whilst driving to Turf Moor through Burnley last time. I swear it could have been a scene from One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

The Burnley slapper right up against the fence to no mans land circa early 70's (could have been 1977). Flashing her tiny ones. She thought she was being cool. Not a pretty sight.

Fifteen of us walking down Brunshaw Road prior to a Lancs/Manx Cup game 20 odd years ago. Thirty or so of the famous Suicide Squad coming up Brunshaw Road. Other than us and them the place was deserted. They crossed over and scurried off away towards Eastern Avenue. Not a troublemaker, although some of our lot could look after themselves, but we all found it highly amusing.

I remember a manx cup/friendly game a while ago (Steve Livingstone era) at the turd. As the cram-packed service train pulled into one of the 1st stations in Burnley, a lone fat skinheaded Bumley fan with union jack was stood on the road above the station making rude gestures towards the packed train. Just as the train set off again, a dozen or so Rovers fans slipped past the police on the train & legged it from the platform towards the road.

As the train pulled away from the station, it was travelling at roughly the same speed of the now legging it for his life dingle. All the travelling supporters were watching & cheering/goading as fatty`s lead over the chasing Rovers slipped away. Suddenly Fatty seemed to stumble in one of those comedy type falls that takes about 7 steps & dissapeared below a low wasteheight wall.

Everyone cheered! biggrin.gif

..................................................................................................................

Another classic from the same game.

Before & after the manx cup/friendly game the local plod 'walked' the Rovers fans from the train for what seemed like miles.

On the way back to the station a car full of inbreds sped past shouting abuse & spitting in our direction & generallly being quite nasty (I seem to remember this being on a dual carriageway or something)

...about 30seconds later as the walking rovers fans rounded the long corner, someone spotted the 'inbred car' at the back of a rather large traffic queue. Suddenly these 'nasty & hard' people were being very quiet & trying not to be noticed. The car got a right good kicking & almost tipped-over before the local plod regained control of the situation & moved us all on.

...................................................................................................................

N.B.....although funny, i do not condone violence in any way...especially against people less fortunate than ourselves.

Could have been the same escort to burnley barracks after the game walking down past the college and the pub on the corner was full of knuckle draggers goading the Blackburn escort walking past. Police moved the escort on as a minor altercation took place after someone in the pub tried to throw a bucket of 'beer' out of the top window, at least i think it was beer biggrin.gif

At the back of the escort where i was stood, the inside of the bin, which may still stand outside the very pub was despatched through the window much to the horror on the landlord who was remonstrating to the police and it was pointed out it was his own fault for allowing the bucket of p**s to be thrown from his top window.

The train had a rather bad odour on the way home but the first carriage was surprisingly empty apart from a selected few laugh.gif

CLB,

I wonder if the same slapper had returned to t'turf in 88 as a local 'lady' was hoisted aloft on the longside only to be arrested for offending the away support with her tattooed breasts!

A few minutes later a lad was hoisted aloft with no shirt on and balaclava to avoid detection as he aimed a piece of concrete into the rovers section. Wonder why the lad that returned it never went to the same extremes.

Happy days.

You'd forget him telling everyone EXACTLY what he thought of Burnley, very loudly and finally, with the aid of several paper knapkins, learning all the words to No Nay Never.

Probably the same one GAV - in Burnley she'd be a highly respected member of the Womens Institute! biggrin.gif

I remember trying to get in the Rovers half of the longside in late '82. The gates head been shut and the police were directing Rovers fans round to the Beehole End. There must have been hundreds of Rovers trying to get in and there were bottles and rocks flying back and forth as we did. Needless to say, fights were breaking out all over the Beehole and me and my mates decided to take a low profile near the front. Within minutes a perimiter gate had been opened by some other Rovers fans and dozens of us spilled onto the touchline from where we were escorted right round the pitch and squeezed somehow into the longside. The highlight of this was the opportunity to verbally abuse the Burnley bench from point blank range, an opportunity which was siezed upon by many! I also remember an old codger, must have been in his 80's, going absolutely mental at us as we passed him in the Bob Lord stand.

Then there was the "swapping of bricks" ceremony which took place at the back of the longside at half time.

Walking back through Burnley was a bit hectic after!

remember peter nob'ead noble of bumley scum ?

recall watching from the riverside when someone launched a pice of stone at him, smashed him right on his bald patch.

to hide his embarrasment he simply rubbed his head but refused to look at the Rovers fans.

being in a van driving along belvedere road (I think) when about 4 bumley fans tried running after us to do the windows, the look on their little faces when the rear doors opened and 23 lads jumped out made me smile for weeks laugh.gif

That would be the famous "Burnley @#/?, Burnley @#/?" song he had.

I've got that and also the bananas song on Video somewhere.

P.s Nice Pic of the Dingledome.. Glad the photographer had a fast car for a getaway wink.gif

Sort of on the hooligan level but remember I was young.

Tranny van t'turf. I think 21 of us packed in it, met at a mates flat at 8:00am. Nothing but Blue and White heading through Accy. Went to the ribble bus stop across from "the old house at home" pub, a clarrot hang out. Stopped Burnley fans getting on the bus, several of them ran into the pub only to come running back out when they saw it was full of Rovers fans that was funny.

Best part, leaving the game in the plain white tranny van, 3 up front driver and 2 passengers. We got made by a handful of clarrots, maybe 5 or 6 they started in foot pursuit yelling and screaming. Paul the driver casually turned into a parking lot behind a camping store, the clarrots duly followed intent on mayhem.

The three lads upfront go out and started offering it, the clarrots kept coming. Just as the clarrot got close enough our lads opened the back doors to the van and we started to pile out.

the look on them Burnley fans faces as they realised they had just been had was supreme, it was like they was on ice skates as they tried to about face and high tail it. We laughed all the way home, I've never seen eyes get so big, it really was classic.

The scariest visit to the Turf was the same day, got home from the match and Mum had fixed me a mixed grill before she went off for a few bevvy's herself, stuck it under the grill to keep it warm. Well, duly drunk I passed out, awoke to a house full of smoke and me mother screaming bloody murder, mixed grill was black and shrivelled clarrots were nowt compared to the wrath I caught that evening. Skuleked out for a few refreshers, things were still going off in bits and spats. Good day twas really good, shame about the mixed grill though I was famished.

On a more positive note, I always used to enjoy the banter between Rovers fans and Steve Kindon. One match at Ewood (i forget the year) when he had scored to put them 1-0 up, in response to the usual chant of "Kindon's wife is on the game again" he took great delight in making a 1-0 sign, pointing to himself and miming side-footing it in. A few minutes later after one of his usual dribbles into touch, an empty half whiskey bottle sailed in a high, graceful arc from the Riverside and missed his head by a fraction of an inch. A very respectable looking guy in a sheepskin coat was hoiked onto the cinder track by the police, and we all applauded him as he was frogmarched past.

Its interesting that 25-30yrs on you get a banning order for doing relatively nothing apart from hanging around in a group who may or may not cause trouble if the situation arose.

I'm in no way glorifying this incident and the driver got jailed but what about the lad from Accy who saw a burnley fan walking down the road and decided to run him down, his crime? wearing a burnley shirt.

Talk about losing touch with reality.

Not a derby game but cast your minds back to pre Jack days.

B******* 0 Hull City 1 (A Payton)

Early 60.s ---- fan climbs over the wall from the Darwen end and has a go at the Burnley goalkeeper Adam Blacklaw. Adam puts him on the seat of his pants picks him up and flings him back into the crowd.

You really are so funny Zak - I split my sides laughing at that one. Did Payton actually score against Rovers in an East Lancs Derby? Perhaps you could compare his record against that of Simon Garner.? biggrin.gif
