Staffy was a programme seller , turnstile operator , 50-50 tickets etc. Got paid for them all.
Infact he’s been on the Iron payroll in some form since the 60s.
Told he always got free bus travel and free away match ticket.
First time he does not get free travel and ticket he does not go.
Call him a top fan !
The over 400 fans who had to pay for travel and tickets yesterday are top fans not someone who stops going once his freebies are stopped.
Remember Staffy just didn’t sit on the bus discussing whatever whilst it reached the away venue. He checked for no alcohol on board before leaving ( the law, not his law and meant all fans on that bus could see the game and not miss it due to a moron, probably one of Awaywego’s mates ). He ran raffles, dispensed drinks and snacks, informed fans about drop off and pick up procedure on the day, dispensed rubbish bags for litter and retrieved them for disposal before the bus went back to its depot, informed fans about next games, old programme sales etc etc.
The rest of us just did what all fans do, discussed the game and life in general, met and got to know like minded folk, stared out the window waiting to arrive or spent endless time on their phones whilst Staffy ran the bus for their benefit. So maybe he did get a free ticket, I don’t know or care because John Staff deserved that at the very least and I wish some folk would be a little more gracious about a really nice bloke who’s heart was in the right place and really loved his football club. Nice one Staffy, well done mate 👏👏👏
