    Keeping football programmes


    0 Not allowed!
    Does anyone else have stashes of football programmes that they have no intention of ever looking at but just can't bring themselves to throw away?

    I have moved house several times and each time look at them and just about decide not to throw them. But have just moved again and am sorting through stuff and there they are again. Shall I just chuck them now and be done with it.

    Most are in the 80's, 90's and 2000's. No one will want them. I'm never going to look at them. Or am I?

    Maybe when I'm retired I'll have nothing better to do?!

      Its probably one of those things that if you did ever throw them out, you would sometime later regret the decision.

      The sitting down and looking at each season when you are retired sounds a great idea, as no doubt many memories would come flooding back.

      If you are not short of storage space I would keep them.

      I have all my programmes and wouldn't part with them.

      I have loads and intend to keep them all. Moved recently and went through them remembering the scores, line ups and the day out was quite nice.

      Surprised that I only had to look up a couple of the results as the programme brought most of them back to me. I love keeping them and will never stop

      I kept mine until we played Walsall 7-0 in the late seventies. That one got sogging wet and the collection had one missing.

      Brighton = blue

      I binned most of mine recently only keeping the ones that mean something. My first ever game. Last at Goldstone. First at Amex. Play - off v Millwall for example. And the ones that have been signed.

      Similar. We've had some building work done recently and I needed to have a good clear out. I went through all mine and extracted those that had special memories or perhaps a bit rarer Albion opponents etc.

      I put the rest on Freecycle and a young chap aged 9 or 10 asked for them, via his dad. His face was a picture when he saw them.

      i have a whole bin bag under the bed full of programmes.

      when I used to go on the junior seagulls coach to gillingham, we were given one free and I kept every one...I also have quite a few Goldstone ones, withdean ones and only 1 or two from amex.

      i also have loads of away games ones and quite a few huddersfield programmes and special Cup ones etc.

      One day i will probably bin them or give them to charity shop as I never look at them anymore!

      Sacred objects. I'm sure they will be in the skip some day, just not in my life time.

      Very sacred objects. I could never throw one away.
