MILE END STADIUM 96

In the summer of ’96 the nation was buzzing as the England football team reached Euro 96 semi finals amid Brit Pop band fever. At the top of the charts were Blur and Oasis who were to battle it out on the pitch in front of 6,000 fans.  Photos of lead singers Damon Albarn and Liam Gallagher were published in every tabloid and broadsheet in the country along with blanket TV coverage. Robbie Williams made his debut as guest of Pulp as pitch invasions and more streakers ensured the Soccer Six notoriety scaled new heights.
