    They must have given quite a few schools a batch of 20, my kids school is very multi cultural but they, other parents haven’t got a clue about Cardiff city. Hardly anyone went to get them from the school office after the email went out to all parents, I got the first two at lunch, the wife got 4 more after school and no one else went for them until we told a few. It’s a good idea though.

    👍😂😂😂 They were great days, younger fans, which is their loss unfortunately, have no clue what Ninian Park was really like. Those late 60s/early 70s days on the old Grangetown End were something else. Bouncing up & down on those wooden sleepers, seems like it was in another lifetime now. The newer ‘concrete’ Grange End was a pale imitation really, I hope I don’t seem like an old fogey looking back with rose tinted glasses but if you were there you’d know, believe me you’d know.

    Caerphilly is a football town with loads of City fans and a huge amount of youngsters starting to take an interest.

    Our bus used to have just my lad and his mate as under 18s on away games, now 2 thirds of the bus are teenagers.

    They don’t half make a noise too 👍

    I’m so pleased we are having a big crowd tomorrow and we’ll done to the club for doing stuff like this.

    I agree with that completely. Lessens the risk of them being Man Utd fans in the future. Good idea.

    start half way up the Grange end, city score and surprise surprise you find yourself down the front. Free ride mind you as feet never touched the ground.

    I don't understand all this nostalgia for Ninian Park. The place was a dump unfit for human habitation. And this is from a person who has been supporting the side since 1958 with more than 20 years as a season ticket holder. I am afraid that many are looking through rose tinted glasses.

    I'd say its because Ninian Park had its own personality, whereas the CCS has very little. In fact, football stadiums built since the 90s are basically the same.

    A big positive the CCS has over Ninian Park though is that we don't have to stand in piss.

    Or you'd start close to the fence separating the Bob Bank, and find yourself somewhere near the exit once a cracking goal hand been scored at the Grange End

    Yep - went on that ride in the Real Madrid game...

    It was the noise that was able to be generated from the timber and the cladding at the bback of the stands that I remember most.

    The sheer amount of crap under that grandstand was frightening though, especially in the light of what happened at Bradford...

    Not sure if all tickets have now been put up for sale, it looked like it a few days ago, but there’s less than 300 left now online

    The old Grange was big too. I think NP had a capacity of over 50,000 in the late 70s. I can remember the away fans being in the enclosures under the grandstand.

    I’m with you on Ninian Park ‘eventually’ being a dump & we did need to move but we’re on about 30+ years ago here. It was of its time, every ground was more or less the same at the time, it was all we knew. So, no, us lot looking back to our 60s/early 70s days aren’t looking through rose tinted glasses, we looking back at the reality of football at that time. The ones who look back on the 90s/early 2000s at Ninian Park with fondness, now that’s another matter. Us lot, you included, who look back in the Jones, Swindin, Scoular days at the ground have every right to be nostalgic 👍

    It’s great that you take the time and effort to run transport to Away games.

    The 70's at Ninian Park were incredible,like previously mentioned walking under Grange end stand was mad,full of litter .But the atmosphere was always fantastic,even if we had to take our lives in our hands entering sloper road and being surrounded by hostile away fans!!

    Looks like only about 80 in Upper Ninian, 150 in Middle Tier and a handful in the Grandstand left

    Spot on SP. The Ninian of the 70s holds the nostalgia for me. The ground started to be a dump when the old grange end was being taken down.

    I don't think the nostalgia is about the ground itself, rather the "atmosphere" we had as youngsters in that wonderful huge wooden floored Grange. Where friendships were made which endured until the rebrand.


    If someone has no nostalgia about their youthful days, then it must have led a pretty boring youth.
