  1. Solihull away please. Five minutes from my house that
  2. A little glimpse of Wee Willie 6 mins 30 seconds into this in the lead up to a Roy Coyle goal vs Chelsea in the Cup.
  3. I spoke to him today - he has agreed to an interview for my upcoming book on the Owls 73-76. A thoroughly good man. Inspirational what he has achieved in memory of his daughter. I'm going to donate a few quid as a thank you as well. He said his spell at Hillsborough was a 'special time' and loved how the fans took to him.
  4. https://www.swfc.co.uk/news/2019/november/hendersons-relish/
  5. The official supporters club died a bit of a death when the club took merchandising and travel 'in house' in the late 70s/early 80s. It was still going strong in the mid 70s though. Here's their 'Personality Girl' of the year (1974 I think) as announced at the annual SC dinner dance. Lots more in my upcoming book on the dark days :)
  6. Imre Varadi in a 1-1 draw against Shrewsbury in 1983. Faintly disappointing game, but season got a lot better!
  7. Draft of this is all finished now. A couple more interviews to follow up and then editing and proofreading. Should mean that it's out in late spring/early summer next year. It's already listed on Amazon though - which I must admit got me a little excited :) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Our-Lowest-Ebb-2020-Wednesdays/dp/1908847174/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=john+dyson+our+lowest+ebb&qid=1573682918&sr=8-1
  8. I went to a play off final a while ago where they announced Southend's striker as 'Big Bad' Barry Corr. I don't remember him being either of those things for the Owls.
  9. Bernard Shaw certainly wasn't happy.
  10. Made him captain, offered him a new contract - and then released him at the end of the 75/76 season. This extra-ordinary article might explain why.
  11. Here's Allan/Alan (take your pick - the club programme calls him by both names in the 1970s). He's with a goal-scoring superstar here. Someone who's name would strike fear into the heart of defenders far and wide. Someone who's goalscoring feats are legendary..... And some Brazilian fella as well :)
  12. I just loved the picture. She may well have been playing at the Fiesta Club and calling in on a friend :) Picture from early 1974.
  13. Fair play. I agree then. Get him in the England squad :)
  14. I think that article is stunning by today's standards. He lays into the players by name (Fox and Shaw) and indirectly - accusing others of not giving 100% and others of stinking of booze. Incredible really. Not sure if the Star would run a 2019 equivalent?!
