Anyone remember that fella copying the Lino one game over the Bob bank think it was a midweek, everyone was just watching him :hehe:
I remember someone doing this and it really getting to the lino. There was one guy completely committed to it but quite a few started to do it over a small distance. I think it was a weekend game but it was decades a gonand could have happened on multiple occasions.

Remember this guy. Always steaming and causing aggro first half then sleeping it off second half.

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.

He lives near me and I still see him regularly. I also get the impression he's a wealthy, scruffy, eccentric type. Still cycles around. Must be in his 70s at least and fit as a butchers dog.

Stanty just phoned up to complain about this. Not a clue what he said. Something about gingers apparently.

There's also the rotund, ruddy guy that looked like Hagar The Horrible albeit with grey beard, tache and hair.

Bit of a handful at away games. Used to see him on his off days up the Fox and Hounds in Whitchurch.

Not forgetting Jock - a seemingly 7 foot bohemoth in a kilt no matter what the weather was doing.

Only used to see him at away games, funnily enough.

I am sure it was a plastic police helmet by the 80s
It was plastic for all games, other than Man utd at home 1974, which is where the above pic is from. He should have ahd it on against Spurs at home FA Cup 1977 too, as he got caught up in it a bit. :hehe:

He was known as Happy Harry to a lot of us, real name was Trevor and he was from Ely hospital. Part of the furniture at NP back in the day.

The bloke with muttln chopsand the bike you're talking about is John Reynolds. He has a house on Wedtern Avenue that was left to him. I used to watch City training in the school holidays in about the 1890's and his hair 'style'was the same then - big sideboards in school. I've know him for years and he was s ball boy for Inter Cardiff in his late 50's - I don't think he pays to get in anywhere. Amused me when visiting teams would arrive at the Ninian gates and some would be saying Hello Nohn as they got off the bus.
When I was with a Welsh Premier/League team, if we wanted to tap a llayer up, John would somehow get their phone number!
