My memory might be patchy but I started going in 1975 and it was played then but I don't remember it being played for years and years around the mid 80s well into the 2000's. So did we ditch it first time around anyway and did anyone complain. Ditching it second time around would be easier surely. Anyone know how many seasons it has been played in our history and dates?
I complained, they ditched for a rubbish Elton John song which was then replaced by a succession of horrendous tunes. When the ground was redeveloped I managed to find a copy of On the Ball and Alan started playing it again - hard to believe that is almost 20 years ago now.
I believe it was played not long after the 66 World Cup through to about 1985, then back again in 2000. I am not sure if it was ever played between 1985-2000.
