Re: What Premier/Football League Grounds have you played at?

Turf Moor in the late sixties with the Junior Clarets. We weren't allowed to use the proper goals and had to play across the width of the pitch.

Fairly predictable. Didn’t think Liverpool were much. Phillips their best player says it all. We just look exhausted
Exhausted? What absolute nonsense. There was no drop-off at all as the game progressed. Even at 3-0 we were still pushing for a goal.
