I've got a very similar picture as my mouse mat. I'm looking at it now.

My match looks like it was probably in the Division One season of 1970/71 as the crowd is massive. Away team are in all white, so possibly Leeds ? Taken from virtually the same spot, but definitely a different game. If I can find the link, or attach a picture I will.

Cant remember where I got in online, but it definitely wasn't the club shop as it was during the boycott

That was my first Blackpool side, apart from one game in our relegation year of 66/67. Just missed promotion on goal average (0.21 of a goal). I can still name them all. My Mum & Dad got me the new socks with the two tangerine rings. I was so proud I rushed over to Fishers Field with my football just to show them off.
Fantastic squad that 1966 and who didn’t go on Fishers Field to play footy who lived around there, happy days indeed!👍

Not directly BFC but leading on from the Anglo Italian win. Was checking out the crazy structure in the Bologona stadium - you can see it behind a few team photos etc and found a couple of pics relating to the stadium’s original Fascist connections.

The new Littoriale stadium was inaugurated by Mussolini who survived an assassination attempt in Bologna later that day.

The statue was later pulled down (maybe cause there were rumours of plans to throw it through the club shop window) and dragged through the streets. The ground was also later renamed because of it's Fascist links.

Hi. Is this from an agency or free to use? Looking for photos like this for the book. Thanks - Roy
