We're off,,, the clocks have gone foward so we're all supposed to feel more 'summery'. But where did you go on this day?
I am intrigued as to how the Golden goal ticket would generate a prize of £100, which as you say was a very large amount of money.1974
Football League Division Two
Bristol City 0-1 Fulham
Scorer: Alan Mullery
We could still have been relegated at this point in the season but my major disappointment was that my mate had bought the 0-0 golden goal ticket. The hundred pound prize was a massive amount of money to a couple of schoolboys but we initially decided that we preferred a City win and tried to forget about it. But as time ticked down and the goals failed to come, we started to change our minds only for our monetary dreams to be shattered with less than ten minutes to go.
Since then I don't open my golden goal ticket until the first goal has been scored!
There were ticket sellers all around the ground so a lot of tickets would have been sold. It was a big thing in those days. I can clearly remember the value of the prize, but not the price of the tickets.I am intrigued as to how the Golden goal ticket would generate a prize of £100, which as you say was a very large amount of money.
Surely the tickets would only have cost 5 or 10p each? Were it the latter, then 91 tickets sold would generate £9.10.....were the club really paying out 11 times the income raised?
I was also at this game. I spent my first 18 years living within walking distance of Wembley Stadium but this was the first time I had been there for a football match. I had occasionally been taken there for other events, most excruciatingly a Silver Jubilee event in 1977 where the Queen rode about on the pitch inspecting marching bands.1983.
