History Indoors is an organisation run by researchers from the University of Essex providing free history talks to the general public during the lockdown on Zoom. Our next talk on Wednesday looks at whether the pre-Premier League 1970s and 80s was a golden era or not. Terracing and affordable ticket prices versus racism and hooliganism?
This might be interesting for U's fans to think back on the days of Layer Road. Do you remember the 70s and 80s fondly for football, or are things better today overall?
We filmed our roundtable discussion on the topic at the weekend. If you're not sick to death of podcast style football chat, you can watch three Ipswich fans, one Brighton/Col U (myself) fan and an Ebbsfleet United fan talk about nostalgia, safe standing and out-of-town stadiums. I talk about the U's and the Community Stadium a bit in it.
