Re: August 1973, Leicester home
I know the feeling Ian...
my favourite Everton game before coming to Canada with my family in the 70's was Everton Against Swindon Town in the FA Cup when we went behind late in the Replay and came back and won it....I remember the Dave Jones winner late on....I have been to years of Toronto Maple Leaf and Blue Jays games over the years and have never felt the same as a night game at Goodison.....Goodison is the Wrigley Field of english Football
My eldest brother took me for my 7th birthday - the greatest single gift I have ever been given.
Night game and we had top balcony seats. The moment of walking out of the concourse to the sheer cliff face of the seats and the green grass below is still vivid all these years later.
I think we drew but it didn't matter. My heart had been lost and the love affair began.
