A Little Extra... for 5 years in the 90s did not miss a home or away game. Travelling on the supporters coach with Ossie and Paul and on the Bisto coach. First game was on the Kop and then South Paddock where I had a season ticket for a number of years. Now a days have to pick and choose the games. But one thing I still love to watch the Mighty Pool and wish I could go to alot more games.
