Even more photos of 80s matches that are a bit rubbish…

Another dip into the 1980s crappy snappy world of pre-digital photography…

Join us once more on the bench outside Boots and share our disappoinment… aww.

The City Ground, Nottingham Forest. Somewhere behind that big red fence, other people’s heads and copper’s helmet,… is the goal.

Hillsborough, Sheffield Wednesday. A gloomy shot of Leicester defending a corner against Wednesday, the flash only succeeding in lighting up the back of someone’s head… and a dividing fence that was to play a big part in football history.

Carrow Road, Norwich City. Many thanks to Nick Richards who sent us this snap of the Canaries v Manchester United from March 1988. The rather pedestrian nature of the ‘action’, and lots of backs of heads edge this into rubbish territory. Well done Nick.

Portman Road, Ipswich Town. A dark night in Suffolk just about sees Leicester on the attack against Ipswich. This time my flash illuminates a vandalised pillar and someone’s bald spot.

The Hawthorns, West Bromwich Albion. A grim looking day out in the Black County, where one stand appears to have closed down due to lack of interest. What might have been a reasonable study of the ground is ruined by Old Big Head…

Your photos of 80s matches that are a bit rubbish…

Come on, we know you have them, send them in to: garysilke@sky.com 

If you do actually have some rubbish 80s photos of the match then you should probably buy the retro-footy-grumble-fest ‘Got, Not Got’… runner-up in this year’s Footy Book of the Year, and this Xmas’s must-have stocking filler. Available from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here
