I took the future Mrs Ciderjon to this one, her only Football League outing. Whilst she is still a staunch rugby union supporter we tried a few other sporting treats. Non League football (sat on terracing and did her knitting), Amateur Rugby League ( went to sit in van after ten minutes, well it was freezing fog). She did stay the course at Loftus Road though, but the experiment was never repeated.
One of her major complaints concerned the lack of direct play in the penalty area, 'too much nebbishing about'. I explained they were seeking to thread the ball through to a better placed team mate, to be told 'well they're not are they'. No reply to that really, as two toothless attacks proved her point.
What baffles me though, is why we chose that game! I have no idea why we were even in London nor any recollection of what we did before or after the game. It was a second revisit (73/81) so not a new ground. I'd even seen this fixture before and previously seen games on grass, then plastic and now grass again. Not even a required change of surface revisit. A mystery.
