No mention of college today, just the fact that I went to the match at Gay Meadow, Shrewsbury Town versus West Bromwich. Suffice to say that WBA won by the solitary goal and it was an awful game, a game in which Shrewsbury ‘didn’t look like scoring.’ It’s a fact that I went to many of Shrewsbury’s games around this time as they fought to avoid relegation from the second division. It’s equally true that I did this at the expense of my A levels – I seemed to forget that my mates with whom I went were actually working men by now, whereas I was still a student and I really needed to be at it with my books. Oh well. In the first division, Liverpool scored an oxymoronical goalless draw at home to West Ham. Nearest challengers Nottingham Forest and Manchester United both won, thus cutting Liverpool’s lead at the top of the league to just 15 points with 15 games left.
