Our lass was watching some recorded TV earlier today and she called me in for mention of Mansfield Town and Chesterfield.
The series c/o BBC, is called "The 80s with Dominic Sandbrook". Unfortunately it appears not to be on BBC iPlayer but I bet there are some out there with the nous to find it somewhere, somehow...
The episode in question is "Under Pressure"
(https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07p0f ... %20British.)
So what is the link to Mansfield? Well this site (https://subsaga.com/bbc/documentaries/h ... ssure.html) has the transcript but basically the host mentions 1984 and a game between Chesterfield and Mansfield.
I particularly like;
But the atmosphere that day was charged with tension.
Forget Liverpool and Everton or Rangers and Celtic,
even Real Madrid and Barcelona.
This was different.
The air was electric with bitterness and betrayal.
You see, Mansfield and Chesterfield were both mining towns.
