Has anyone got the O'Brien picture where he's the only one who has realised he's scored his free kick against the mackems and is wheeling away in celebration? I don't even think the ball is in the net yet and he knows it's going in anyway.

That Gazza one on the fence is quality.

 

Wasn't the one above it (from the Leazes) in colour originally? I remember it being in one of the football stadiums books circa 1990/1. Even though the ground was open at both ends I always loved that image of it. It didn't in reality, but from that angle I thought it made the stadium look quite impressive/modern/continental, compared to all the pitched rooves and roof trusses everywhere else. The fact the picture was bathed in sunlight helped an all like.

Re the Gazza one: see the guy at the back with his arm up? That's me.

 

Re the one from the east side of the Leazes: Probably a pic taken as part of the investigation into the petrol bomb, and where, exactly, it landed ;)

GOING DOWN AT ROKER, SUNDERLAND, ENGLAND, 1992 (Cat #: 1039)

We, an island race, obsessed with our football, huddling shoulder to shoulder in all weathers, including a fine autumn day . . . and suddenly the ball is whipped in and no one is yet celebrating save for he who has kicked it and the man up the floodlight pylon who has an even better view for as long as he hangs on.

Class pics ;) Bring back memories. See just where this pic is showing I was stood looking from this angle, for Gazza's last appearance at SJP for us against West Ham. The ball went in the benches and some bloke kicked it back on to the pitch but as he kicked it his slip on shoe which were all the fashion went flying on to the pitch too. It landed a foot away from Gazza who picked it up, smelled it, and fell down as if he was consumed by the fumes :D was a priceless Gazza moment. Right in front of the corner almost.

The bloke who's shoe it was would get an all-ground ban now.

I think it was part of a double mate, that one being the 'other' one in the set-which confirms my memory because that one's in colour. The one from the Leazes always looked the better of the two images, mainly because you couldn't see the Leazes which was obviously nowt more than a wall.

 

The ones of the old West stand in the snow are quality as a comparison like. Only a few years earlier but look like they belong to a different era.

 

Some brilliant photos in this thread. ;)

I love these threads. That Derby picture is the best, Peacock scoring from Franzie's cross, how we got sweet revenge that day. That Spurs vid too, everyone I've spoken to that was there that day said it could've been another Hillsborough and just look at the fans behind the goal it really could've been.
