No I was at the game and seem to remember Mark sh*tting himself which in all truth was fair enough 

Yes I assume you were just jesting.

My Dad stopped going for about 10 years after the Villa riot in '78 eventhough it had always been his life since the war. Seems that many others did during the 80's.

Hooliganism certainly played it’s part in lower attendances, but you also have to take into account the economic hardship of the seventies and eighties ( 3m unemployed at one point) and the fact that the ‘modern’ man chose to pursue other options on a Saturday afternoon such as shopping

I was at the game where Hazell was sent off. I can't remember if it was for us, or against us. However, I do remember the Kop singing "Brown man in the bath" to the tune of Boney M's "Brown girl in the ring", and Bob turning round and applauding and smiling. Not especially PC, I guess, but a comical moment which he seemed to appreciate nevertheless.

Hi, Just in case anyone is still interested in a question I raised a few months ago, i have finally found the answer myself.

Bob Hazell WAS sent off in the 72nd minute in the Leicester City v Norwich City match on 17 November 1984.

I have attached a match report from a Sunday newspaper with the information.

Many thanks to all who replied to my original post (especially Collymore who was spot on).

Oh yes, just shows what a completely different time it was. 9k for a top flight game whereas now I'd expect us to get at least 15k if we were halfway in League One. 

A lot of it was down to the threat of hooliganism hanging over the game at the time : and then a season later the further reduced top flight attendances across the board were down to the universal fear/disgust stay away factor re Heysel disaster in May 1985 re Juventus v Liverpool European Cup final - the then Champions League Final to our younger readers! It seems rather unimaginable that happening now really in such a prestigious competition!

Can anyone help me with a piece of information regarding Bob Hazell.

Was he sent off against Norwich City at Filbert Street on 17 November 1984 ?

If so does anybody know what minute he was sent off in ?

Sent off on 72 minutes mate.
