Not to be upstaged by my younger brother who in 1980 got a letter from Sheffield United I received this letter from the Football Association in 1985. I’d written to them complaining that Bramall Lane hadn’t been included in their application for the 1988 European Championships and they were good enough to reply giving reasons why.

Bramall Lane - Sheffield Utd
Just found this photo in amongst my albums. It was took from the Bramall Lane Upper Tier, now called the Jessica Ennis Stand and I was sat slap bang in line with the centre spot. A great vantage point though couldn’t say the same for the match. It was shit as is usually the case at Bramall Lane these days.
