Thread: Decades under your belt

    Decades under your belt

    I saw my first Cardiff City game in the 1970ís. In the next week I will be watching them in the 2020ís. My sixth different decade following the Bluebirds. And I bet there are many more of you with more decades on the clock than I have.

    Seven for me, but there are a few who are at eight and I wouldn't be surprised if there were some nines.

    Earliest memory is 1959 away at the Cabbage Patch (the vetch, for our younger viewers )

    If I was going before, I’ve no memory of it

    Dec 68 for me, so my 7th decade.

    I'm (only) 60 but this is my 8th decade of life which seems bizarre

    How refreshing to read a post referring to decades without the word new.

    As the last year of the 202nd decade commences, I too first saw City v Preston North End in I think 1971
    I know we won at home I think 5-2.

    My name was announced over the loudspeakers in the Granstand.

    A decade is ten years the new decade starts next year. 🙄

    1959 for me too. Home to Liverpool. That’s 8 decades. How did that happen

    1st game Oct 70, a 4-1 win over Blackburn - "Toshack is a reject" was the chant of the day, as it was the first game after he left.

    Re: Decades under your belt

    My first game was City V Real Madrid in 1971, hooked ever since so 6 decades for me.

    And me. First game 75/76. Hereford at home. Hooked.
    Never counted the decades before - saying 6 makes me feel old!

    You are the exact opposite of all those who said they'd never go again after he was sold.

    Re: Decades under your belt

    My dad took me to a game in the early 60s, spurs at home. We were in the old first division. My lasting memory was the crowd, like sardines all squashed together. The city won. I then started following them in my own right in 1969.

    Re: Decades under your belt

    1968 for me , last two games of the season, both 0-0. Then the first game of 68/69 lost 0-4 at home to Palace! What was I thinking of?

    Re: Decades under your belt

    It seems a few on here first saw the City play in 1968 (myself included); would that have been the European Cup Winners Semi-final against Hamburg I wonder?

    Re: Decades under your belt

    First game I think must have been 70/71 season after the Mexico World Cup ! That was the season Toshack was sold to Liverpool as I remember being on the Canton Stand for 5-1 win against Hull, Toshack scored a hat trick and was his last home game ??
    I thought I had seen Fred Davies in goal as well BUT if that is correct then that would have been 69/70 as I think Frank Parsons and Jim Eadie were goalkeepers in 70/71 season just before Bill Irwin joined ?

    It could be I always thought I saw Davies as goalkeeper because I had the programmes that my dad used to buy me.
