Arsenal played a midweek game to inaugurate the upgraded floodlights in 1964(can’t image a top flight team bothering these days)..Man City came down for Steve Neville’s Testimonial in 1990 or 91.We've played all these teams in friendlies, I think. (Certainly Arsenal in the 60s and Man City in the 90s). It's competitive fixtures that we've not had with them.
Yes I think Alan Ball brought Man City to SJP in mid-90s too. Part of the Buster Phillips deal?Arsenal played a midweek game to inaugurate the upgraded floodlights in 1964(can’t image a top flight team bothering these days)..Man City came down for Steve Neville’s Testimonial in 1990 or 91.
Yeah, you're right with Fleetwood and FGR in the league (though we've definitely lost to the latter in the Conference). I thought perhaps Boston Utd., but I think they beat us 0-2 at home in our relegation season. I can't think of any other FL teams though.We're certainly unbeaten against FGR in the Football League (and FA Cup). Think they must have beaten us in the Conf.
Maybe Fleetwood too
And Billy Wright put out the same eleven that had played the previous weekend. I remember Frank McClintock, Mel Charles, and Tony Burns (later Argyle) in goal. Wright switched on the christmas lights.We played Arsenal in an inauguration game for the new, old, old, old floodlights around 1963/64!
