Down memory lane. Down on the station at midnight

Barnsley away sep 23rd 1986.
An away day to Barnsley on a cold autumn night for a league cup 2nd rd tie would,nt appeal to your average fan but when you aint missed a game for 2years football starts to become an obsession.
So its on the dog and round a few faces up for a trip up North, Barnsley is 35 miles sth of Leeds deep in pit and cloth cap country where the local lingo is something like goin downt chippie for mushy peas and curry sauce and aye up its ferrets downt trousers time our lad.
Well i managed to persuade 2 of my east london yid mates to meet me at St Pancras and after a few Lagers it was on to the Sheffield bound inter city express for more lager and a game of cards. I arranged to meet Neil a top geezer id met in Sheffield a few years back and a big Spurs fan, he also followed his local team Sheff utd and was well in with the BBC (Blades Business crew)so he was well up to date with Northern Football which was handy as we’d expect a hostile reception at the ground.
Two years previous the North was in the grip of the Miners strike a bitter and bloody struggle and many London old bill were drafted in to add manpower to their struggling yorkshire counterparts, the London old bill were accused of milking the overtime and giving out vicious unprovoked beatings as well as shagging many of the local Northern slappers, comparisons were made to vikings who had raped and pilleged their way through the country long before.
So Cockneys were enemy no 1 to many Northeners and on arrival at Barnsley we expected a welcoming commitee, the grey slate landscape was even bleaker under the grey leaden sky and as we queued up for the seats a few verbals were exchanged, inside the verbals became more heated and i slapped some mouthy git who was giving it the biggun only to be warned off by some copper about spending the night in Barnsley nick.
The Bank behind the goal with Tottenham fans was pretty full about 1,500 had travelled up and were in full voice ,myself and about 50 others were in the seats next to the Barnsley boys and took great delight in goading them as we raced into a 3-1 lead with Graham Roberts, Clive Allen and Chris Waddle scoring the goals, Barnsley pulled 1 back at the end but we had a 3-2 lead to take back to the lane for the 2nd leg. This was the first time id heard the You ate all the pies song as it was directed at some sad fat miner stuffing his face with pastry.
So an escort back to the Station for the Train boys to catch a connection to Sheffield, so far so good. At the Station the first train left leaving about 30 of us left to wait for the next one . The old bill left and Barnsley started to gather outside the station, this was their main boys and they started to gather in very large numbers, i’d say only 10 of us would have stood and fought and as Barnsley started to pour in to the platform and across the tracks things started coming on top , Neil told us to get on our toes if we didnt want a serious beating so it was down the Slope to the railway sidings , Neil managed to get on to a wall and swing a few kicks before legging it onto some wasteland, me and my mate Mark dived under an old carraige and watched as dozens of pairs of legs sprinted past shouting Cockneys must die, eventually we ventured back out on to the sidings and made our way back up to the platform where the old bill had given chase to the Barnsley firm, some Spurs fans who had been caught had taken a right kicking but one Black geezer was left untouched maybe they thought he was a local who’d just come out of the mines.
On the shuttle train to Sheffield we had to laugh at our escape, Neil left us at Sheffield laughing and this story is relived time andtime again when we
meet up for a drink.
To top the night off we’d missed the last express train to London and to wait till Midnight for the Mail train which would take 7hrs instead of 3 , a seating compartment was added for our comfort thankfully. Two birds had also got on and me and Mark thought our luck was in for 7hrs of shagging but the bitches got off at Chesterfield and it was back to St Pancras for 7.30 am and off home for a quick shower and into work, what a dedicated lot us Football fans are,.
Tottenham won the second leg 5-3 and an 8-5 aggregate win, Clive Allen scored 49 goals that season something we hope Robbie Keane can repeat.
Come on you Spurs

Anywhere near Denleymore ?
You could have got Eric Olthwaite to bore the Barnsley crew into staying away by talking about the “interesting” rainfall statistics or about the merits of his Spear and Jackson no.4 shovel ?
