  1. I'm assuming there are flares here, given the size of the collars and ties.
  2. Maybe there should be another thread for 70s Owls in flares with musicians? Here's John Holsgrove with the Barron Knights.
  3. The fantastic club open day at Easter 2018 (I think). All free, we saw everywhere and my lad got to play on the pitch. It was brilliant.
  4. Great picture. One reason I put a ? in the title of my book about the period 'Our Lowest Ebb?' is that although the club hit the lowest league position (to date) - there was behind the scenes by that stage a plan. Bert McGee as chairman was beginning to sort the finances. Len Ashurst and Tony Toms were beginning to make the team more of a fighting unit. It did of course take Big Jack and another year or two for it all to come good afterwards. There's also a good amount of nostalgia/fondness for the time from (some) of the fans who stuck it out.
  5. I believe this to be Colin West's goal. I think I was there, certainly have the programme. I can't remember a thing about it though. Looks a cracking header
  6. Picture from 1973 featured in a 1985 programme.
  7. . I've been reading through interviews and programmes from the time recently. Another thing also stood out - what an impressive figure Howard Wilkinson was. Would love someone even now with his clarity of thought, modern ideas and desire to succeed.
  8. Wednesday's first black player according to the book I read recently 'Football's Black Pioneers' telling the story of the first black player(s) at each league club. I remember Tony Cunningham winning the penalty against Palace in 84 that sealed promotion. He went down quite easily for that one for such a strong bloke!
  9. He didn't quite tell me that, but putting 2+2 together, that's what I got from it. I didn't put it in the write up, but he did tell me that Len Ashurst came to see him when he was boss at Stockport which AT thought was a bit strange given how it ended at SWFC.
  10. https://ourlowestebb.blogspot.com/2020/11/aninterview-with-allan-thompson.html I was lucky enough to be put in touch with Allan Thompson late last year. He had lots of interesting thoughts, including memories of that Mansfield game. Written up on the link.
  11. Lots of rearranged games as that season drew to a close. This one was because of the FA Cup semi being held at S6 on the original date for the game.
