I am an optimist by nature so I am hoping that my OP title will prove to be true.
At the risk of being misty-eyed about Spangles in the 1970s, I have a memory of something football-related from that time that I’d like you to help me with.
Many football grounds at that time displayed letters on or near the big scoreboard. They would be AA BB CC and so on. There was some significance to this in relation to half time scores, I think. A code in the programme so that you can work out what the score is…? I get the concept (I think) but – why? I know it’s interesting to know but why did some grounds do it and others not? Did it have something to do with the pools?
