    In 1993 I saw Vitesse Arnhem play PSV at NEC Nijmegen's ground. It was the last home game of the season for Vitesse and their pitch had already been dug-up in preparation of relaying a new surface for the next season. We only found out about this switch when we turned up at the stadium a couple of days before to buy tickets as we would have gone to the wrong ground on the day !

    It is not unusual in the Czech Republic for clubs to play at other stadiums. This year Pardubice have to play in Prague at Bohemians Dolicek stadium ( 120km away ) as their ground has been deemed to be unfit for top flight football. The irony is that Bohemians had to play at Slavia's Eden stadium in 2010/11 as Dolicek was supposedly not suitable, but was allowed the following season after an appeal. Both Sparta and Slavia have played a season at the Strahov stadium when their own stadiums were being rebuilt, whilst Slavia had to play their European ties in the late 1990s/early 2000s in Strahov as the old Eden didn't meet UEFA requirements.

    Viktoria Zizkov are having to play at the Prosek stadium this season as their quaint ground has been declared not suitable for second level Czech football.

      Howell would soon be an MP again, being elected for Birmingham Small Heath on 23 March 1961, with two long spells as Minister for Sport (with temporary responsibilities during the second spell as Minister for Drought, Minister for Floods, and Minister for Snow).

        Even though I love to root around stationery shops I'm surprised to find Platignum still make pens. I wonder if getting one from your parents is still seen as a milestone in your life?

          Used to be Parker in our family, though don't know if that is a step up or down.

            I think I had an Osmiroid when I was at school. Though my current fountain pen is a Parker.

              I got a lovely Cross pen from my family for my 30th (and a watch off my mum and dad for my 21st).

                Hope that’s worked. A ground record at the time which I hadn’t realised so must be in the top few Anfield attendances

                  Division 3 North had a Cup?* Four clubs exceeding 100 goals is extraordinary.
