The Wizard of Notts Recommends: Blast from the Past: Meadow Lane on the 28th April 1973

Films for 1973 include The Exorcist, Enter the Dragon and The Wicker Man. Dark Side of the Moon, Goats Head Soup and Quadrophenia were amongst the great albums released that year. in Britain, conflict between Ted Heath and the miner caused nationwide power cuts and the first gravediggers strike meant that bodies remained unburied at the side of the road. And in the US, Vietnam raged and Tricky Dicky was secretly listening in on the Democrats in a famous hotel in Miami. More importantly, Notts won 4-1 against Tranmere. The Wizard is in this photo somewhere. Note the fashions, the haircuts and the state of the pitch. None of the players ate pasta or food with green bits
