Just in case one of the mods thinks it's not really related to the attendance at Doncaster.

1947 was a very good year

The year I started at the local Abbey Grammar School after passing my 11 plus examination. 1947, joining my two elder brothers. :)

The year my sister passed her 11 plus. I had to wait until I was 11, 4 years later. 1951 was the year of the Festival of Britain and a general election returning Winston Churchill to power.
Posh were in the Midland league but it wasn't especially cold.
Posh won six games in a row (still a record, I think)

I suppose starting that conversation was my fault, it was meant as a prediction and a throw away line, much the same as when people have put things like 745 kick off etc
When you are dead, you don't know you're dead.
It's difficult only for the others.
It's the same when you are stupid

It's always your fault. And what's special about the year 745?
Nice car though.

That's very much like one of our previous cars except that ours was a Jaguar and that's a Bentley. I remember all of the exhaust pipes.
By the way in the year 745 Daniel, bishop of Winchester, Ingwald, bishop of London and Wilfrid, bishop of York all died (according to Wikipedia). Sounds a bit suspicious to me.

In 1955 they said The fast food restaurant is convenient for a quick
meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

Also in 1955
