  1. I consider myself privileged that i lived during the era of the jungle, was no better place in the ground especially to be especially victories over them.

  2. what a transformation all that needs done now is to do the main front stand in future looks a bit out of place now need the full stadium same height i know front part of it is listed but im sure it can be worked around make stadium bigger we got a massive following so be no problem filling the seats
