I hope you meet someone your height, so you can see eye to eye with someone as small as you!
Yep - did the whole lot.
See you in the morning down by the jetty.
All here as well (apart from the Lego stand).

Once in the North West corner, every game after in the North, why would you have wanted to go anywhere else !!?? As a teenager anyway
That must be quite an old pic.
I went to my first game in 1962 and that isn't the West Stand that I saw then!
I've watched from every vantage point on all four sides at one time or another ... except the Lego Stand.
Before it was erected I frequently stood on the terrace where the Lego stand was eventually placed, yet once the stand was built I never had the desire to sit down in the same area.
How odd is that?
I also had the dubious pleasure of playing on the Goldstone pitch two or three times.
I played for Brighton Schoolboys, and in those days the team were allowed to play at the Goldstone for important cup matches.
You couldn't see it from the terracing, but the pitch had quite a slope on it towards the North East corner, and you certainly knew about it as a 14 and 15 year old kid playing on it.
Balls were much heavier in those days and when schoolboys took corners from the NE corner they frequently didn't even get as far as the penalty area!
Sadly, my overriding memory is of breaking my wrist at the Goldstone playing against South London Boys.
We lost that game 3-1 from memory, and were due to play them in a return match at Selhurst Park a couple of weeks later, but I couldn't play as I was still in plaster.
I was gutted, I really wanted to play at Selhurst.
That was in the days before we grew to hate each other of course!
A fine is a tax for doing wrong.
A tax is a fine for doing well.
I never sat in the West Stand - main or lego - wasn't that posh!
I started life with my Dad on the benches at the back of the South Stand and then graduated to the terrace behind that goal. After it burnt down and was rebuilt as an all-seater I moved to either side of the tunnel on the terrace in front of the West Stand - generally the back of the north side of it. Occasionally I went in the North Stand or on the East Terrace. I've a vague recollection of standing in the north east corner on one occasion but I can't imagine why unless the away fans had been moved elsewhere for some reason.

No mention of the West Stand Extension? That was the only one I didn't make it to.
