  1. I dont think you'll regret it. The book is based on s tremendous amount of research. It is very thorough and full of interesting life stories. If at times a little depressing with what black players faced not too long ago.
  2. This one I think. I stIll find it stunning what he said and did.

  5. The Owls' Twitter feed has announced the passing of Len Ashurst. The man who, along with Tony Toms, began the rebuilding of the club and it's slow road back to the top. My thoughts are with all who knew him.
  6. Fair play, I'll have a look. I travel up from Tamworth for many home games - usually cheaper to split at Derby. I'll give the websites a go. The App saved me and my two lads about £14 last weekend though.
  7. The Trainline App does split ticketing. I don't think the website does now (though it used to). The app is easy to use though and saves the need to print or collect physical tickets. I agree also on using a Railcard if possible. I have a family one, well worth the £30 cost
  8. RIP Tony Toms. He could not have been more helpful to me in writing my book on the 70s. He had nothing but praise for his time at SWFC. A thoroughly good bloke who must have been terrifying at his peak.
  9. Graham Coughlan was coming out of the main reception bit as I was coming out of the Doncaster game. I wondered why. Now I know!
  10. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Strutt Brian Strutt from Malta played a couple of games in the late 70s, so before Ante Mirocevic. I know nothing else much about Strutt. Could be a naval thing being born there perhaps?
  11. Found him with the great help of @RevOwl. Happy if you want to cut off any more replies, or leave it open for memories of Stevie?
  12. Another thing I'd love to speak to Stevie about - there was a mid-80s version he recorded I think!
