'Time machine' time: Can't Post or Reply Privately

Please answer this quickly, without giving it too much thought....

If you could go to one football event, & one non-sporting one in a 'time machine' where would you go/

Mine would be the 1932 Amateur Cup Final at Upton Park-Dulwich Hamlet 7, Marine 1.

&

The fall of the Berlin Wall.

Over to you folks, should kill a few moments of 'Friday at work' waiting for the weekend boredom! ;-)

The football match I would go to would be Manchester United v. City in 1973-4 (Denis Law's finest moment).
The non-sporting event would be a sale of Van Gogh's painting in his lifetime. I would buy one for a few francs, then sell for several million pounds in the modern age!

A goalless draw Sly .... Manchester United v Exeter, FAC, 2005

As for the non-sporting event, I think I'd very much have liked being in on the Gunpowder Plot, 1605. Pity it wasn't successful, because it was a very laudable aim, well worth repeating today ...... Tongue

But they weren't trying to get rid of the Monarchy, they wanted to replace Protestant James I (VI to us) with a Catholic monarch (James' catholic daughter Elizabeth was favourite but Philip of Spain's daughter Isabella was also considered) to brig us all back under papal doctrine. Note it was only girls who could be easily manipulated who were considered and that may say more about their own aspirations towards the throne through marriage than it does about their hatred towards James himself.

A little correction to above, James I's (VI to us) daughter Elizabeth wasn't catholic but being only nine yr old at the time she would've been raised in the catholic faith on her succession to the throne had the plot succeeded.

Not done my research here but, anyway...

you have the Shrovetide 'football' in Ashbourne, a wonder round Derby Museum before the bankers - well if not closed closed it down reduced free enjoyment for the great unwashed masses such as myself - informed me it was widespread to have these games.
Being a Derby lad there was one from 2 parishes around the cathedral in Derby - this is where the facts if indeed they are (wife from Oxford laughs when I say its a Cathedral - not even a church according to 'er ) but King someone banned it from - I think certain places? anyway knowing the place it would be good to see it done again
ps I'm the son of 2 lapsed catholics but I don't know if that relative - speaking as an agnostic

"dulwich hamlet's challenge cup win in 1999 2-1 v uxbridge at charlton athletic"

Hmm...might second that myself, even though I was 'nominally' there!

In our then First Team manager Dave Garland's pub at opening time, which was 11 o'clock back then, in Chancery Lane. Then, as more of us arrived, we headed to Westminster pier at about three, for a boozy riverboat ride to Greenwich, much to the bemusement of the tourists on board! Then in a boozer at Greenwich, think it was the Cutty Sark, finally cabs to The Valley, & heading into their bar before kick off...for some reason a lot of the evening is a bit hazy! ;-)

Historical event - Fall of the Berlin Wall (see 'Kennedy' moments thread)

Sport - Nautico v Gremio...Batalha dos Aflitos 2005

I wouldn't actually want to be at the game but in Porto Alegre...I was in the UK and I remember phoning a mate over there when I was couldn't find any score on the internet...he was catatonic...just couldn't speak after the tension and emotion...finally got the result from my wife's mother an hour or so later...

I'd sell my house, my wife and all of my belongings to have been there that day!

Football: 1977 European Cup Final Liverpool vs Borussia Mönchengladbach. Our first title and in the days before the big money tarnished the game.

Other Sport: There are so many track and field moments I'd love to have seen. The Coe/Ovett clashes in the 1980/84 Olympics would have been pretty special.



Last Game

SPFL Premiership

Hamilton Academical 0-0 Partick Thistle
