I was reading a sentence about Germany Euro 1996 and the following comment appeared:
Das waren noch Zeiten
and I wanted to break this sentence down.
I first broke it down into simple parts:
Das waren Zeiten
which I think means:
Those were the times
and tried to understand the function of noch by deduction.
Noch I know can have some implication of yet, still and an additional thing but I struggled to work out how noch can be used in the past in this instance.
I know that
Ich war noch ein Kind
can be used to describe
I was still a child
but how does noch function here with Zeiten?
