May I say I thoroughly enjoyed those pictures as well. Great memories, and anything Fellows Park related twangs my heart strings. 77/78 was the first year I really started going regularly, been to a few games in the immediately previous white and red era. I’d forgotten how unique that kit was with the floppy white collar, outsized cuffs, and the red and green stripes down the shorts. The later shiny adidas version was much simpler. That was a good team 77/78, probably one of those that if the play-offs had existed might have got promoted. I think Mick Bates had won the league with Leeds and scored in a European final. Likewise, Henry Newton had a league winners medal from his time at Derby Roger Hynd had played in a European final for Rangers, Alun Evans was the first ever £100,000 teenage transfer. Some real signings there, but we fell just short and then it turned to cack with relegation the following season. Typical!
Also, I don’t remember the pitch being in such a state for the Leicester game, unless it literally went like that during the game. The obligatory ticket qualifier (or Ken Wheldon moneyspinner) was a night match match v Tranmere I think, and that was played in the snow without any pitch problems.
