Relax, only trying the help those who might want to watch it...FFS I normally do but I'm on a feckin mobile and not able to do links off a phone.
If you see my post on Alan Wiggins map thread recently you will see just that. Then you could be of help instead of sniping. Get a life.
Because I / people can't give a link you don't want anyone to post. Jeez.
I'm not making that 8comment every post I make just to satisfy people like you.
If it was a light hearted comment by you please say so but knowing your posts I doubt it.
If you give us a link and an indication of how far into the show the scene was we'll have a crack at it.Watching 'Tina & Bobby' a few weeks ago, there was a modern covered terrace with the words 'Oxford City FC' on a sign on the roof fascia. It was only there for a few seconds, but does anyone know which ground was used? You would have thought that the lazy producers could have found an older ground somewhere.
Apologies for not providing a link, but the scene appears about halfway through the episode in question. I only watched that particular episode simply because the TV guide mentioned that it was the one in which Moore managed Oxford City. I was well aware that the programme was going to be utter rubbish, and I stopped watching immediately after the Oxford City bit. Thanks for mentioning that it was filmed in the north-west, and I am trying to think of modern non-league grounds in that area which might have been used for the scene. I have already ruled out Curzon Ashton because the terracing opposite the main stand is clearly different from that seen in the programme. I wonder if the producers bothered consulting Oxford City at all?A quick Google tell you that the show was filmed in the Manchester / Warrington area but I couldn't find a mention about the football scenes in particular.
And that of course reminds me that I had actually seen the series after all and identified it at the time as Heywood Road. If anyone could finds some marbles in the Leigh area then I would be happy to claim them. No idea where Headingley fits in to it then from the link I posted earlier in the thread.
Remember watching the series when it was first on a few years ago and Heywood Road also masqueraded as Watford's Vicarage Road when Bobby went to see Elton John about the managers job for which he lost out to Graham Taylor. Also remember a railed off pitch in front of a tower block being used for training scenes. Does anybody know where this is? Possibly used by a Manchester League or Cheshire League club.And that of course reminds me that I had actually seen the series after all and identified it at the time as Heywood Road.

I've known Colin virtually all my life, we went to school together both juniors and seniors. When we left school I used to see him at Oxford City as well as Speedway and Ice Hockey and in numerous pubs and clubs. He's been living in the Canaries for quite a few years now. He writes for various English papers and Websites out there."I was more impressed by his role in Tina And Bobby, and not just because Corrie cutie Michelle Keegan plays Tina. Lorne MacFadyen (ex Grantchester) plays the great man and filming for the football action has taken place at Leeds Rhinos Headingley Stadium."
Taken from HERE, no idea how reputable it is but no reason to doubt it.
He was a St Johnstone supporterWatching 'Tina & Bobby' a few weeks ago, there was a modern covered terrace with the words 'Oxford City FC' on a sign on the roof fascia.

Another factual drama 'Des' which was on TV last night, did not feature any football grounds but it did show Nilsen wearing a blue and white football scarf when he arrived home to be arrested. The implication was that he was a QPR or Chelsea fan, despite the fact that there is no evidence of him having any interest in football. The screenwriter must have been an Arsenal fan, or maybe someone who hates football and wanted to convey the impression that in the early 80's, only gay murderers followed the game. Another likely factual error was been the absence of snow, which is visible in archive TV footage (there was a brief but very cold spell at the time) All the same, the programme was of interest to me because my family was living barely ten minutes walk from Nilsen's home at the time.
