When I first used to go down to NP, my dad would point out the "policeman" who was the mentally disabled chap with a plastic helmet. "Watch out, because he'll arrest you".

There was also a bloke, amazing lamb chops, would park his bike under the floodlight at the Canton End/Grandstand. Scruffy but, apparently, quite well off. Rumours were that he paid for Phil Brignull.

I remember him well. Looked like Seth Armstrong.

What about the big fat scruffy Santa Claus lookalike? Always had food stains on his clothes and crumbs in his huge untidy beard.

Wasn’t the lad with the plastic coppers helmet a soul crew type?

Lad with the helmet was picked up by the police from a "home" (trying hard to be PC here) before everygame and they looked after him. Except, hopefully someone knows this story, when there was a fight on Sloper Road and the poor lad was trying to arrest people.

He's still supporting the City. I was so bored during lockdown I went to the behind closed doors game vs Exeter. He stood by me for most of the game and a tidy enough chap who loves the club.

Used to be loads of myths about him when I was a kid.

Yeah, and I think there were some nasty rumours too. I thought he had passed on to be honest, so I am chuffed to hear he is still around.

There used to be a guy who looked the spit of Uncle Monty from Withnail and I. Used to call him Pie in the Sky as his lookielikey was in a programme of that name at the same time.

I thought he was ancient about 20 years ago! If I'm guessing I'd say he's in his 70s now

Pretty certain he was a resident of Ely Hospital
Edit: unless I'm thinking of another guy who was ancient back in the 70s

The bloke with a tash who sold the matchday programme on Sloper Road. Told my Grampi he liked his jacket every game for 3 season without fail. A black Campri ski jacket it was with illuminous green writing. My Grampi bought a new jacket and put his old one which was still in good nick in a plastic bag which it barely fitted in and took it in to give to him. Bloke wasn't there, must have been ill. My Grampi had to carry this Tesco bag with his jacket in around all night. Fucking fuming. Lol.

We used to sit by this old bloke "Ivor". He probably wasn't that old, just looked it. Always miserable, but a really nice bloke. Haven't seen him for years.

I'm going to go out on a limb here... but are you sure that the bloke we've been calling "big hand man" all this time isn't in fact "small head man"?
What about big jaw man in the same picture :shrug2:

“Skin the kunt” bloke. That’s all he said, even if we conceded and were running back to the halfway line with the ball to kick off he would still say it. He must’ve had Tourette’s.
People must remember him?
