    It's really because of this isn't it.

    You frightened the life out of them that day. The players couldn’t handle Ninian Park , and Leeds fans were also very sheepish that day.

    All I heard off a fellow Leeds fan was that you were on your toes in that car park after . Most of you went yellow.

    On its day NP could be an intimidating ground and was particularly raucous for that game as we were in Div 3 and Leeds were top of the Premier League. Rio Ferdinand later said "I don't mind returning to Elland road with Man Utd. You seem to forget I've played at Ninian Park"!!

    Completely different now mind.

    Off the pitch you were very notorious around that era too.

    Moss isn't coming up tomorrow @Villa Rocker r as he doesn't want scattering on Elland Road but twelve hundred farmers.

    Ninian Park was one of the first away games my Dad took me to when I was young, **** knows why. I remember being stood in a pen outside afterwards and our fans were lobbing all sorts over the walls of it and a couple of minutes later it all started coming back, bottles of piss, coins, stones, everything.

    Much preferred it to your new ground though, terrible experience that is. Not sure why I still do it every year especially given the KO times.

    I have absolutely no idea who your mate is perhaps a scarfer getting on a supporters club coach but what I do know we had a good 400 lads who got escorted back and not once did Cardiff fancy it in actual fact when all them scruffy ****ers ran towards our end and stopped by that invisible fence they were offered it come through that side gate but no takers.I can go back further with Cardiff if you want rock remember mid 80s didn’t take many because going Cardiff was like going Shrewsbury non event the only time they stood was bouncing up and down behind OB in their pink and yellow Pringle’s they looked like a fruit salad on whizz.

    These 'In The Know' stories always go the same way don't they.

    Ninian Park was great on its day, some fantastic memories but other times it was dreary and empty. It was a completely different experience which I do miss compared to the sanitised atmosphere today. But that applies to most grounds too.

    I liked Ninian Park. Real old skool. A certain FA cup match springs to mind when it got extremely lively. Old enough to remember a lot of the old grounds. Upton Park being the most intimidating closely followed by the Old Den. This at a time when the terrace culture was at its peak. Special mention to Roker Park which was the loudest English stadium I'd visited.

    I was doing bird with a Leeds lad when this particular game was played. Good times .

    Got my dates wrong. Was inside when the documentary on the soul crew came out on bbc was it?
