  1. Writing up a section on the ground itself. Heard fans refer to the the "cheesecake" and "crow's nest" sections fo S6. Am I correct in assuming these were what we now call the NW Corner (Wycombe's home) and the uncovered Kop Corner (Tango's home)?
  2. Yes I guess most weeks might be pushing it - but the fans weren't averse to having a go - a few cushion throwing incidents a nd previous chairman Sir Andrew Stephen going to game via taxi as fed up of having his car scratched just two examples. Agree on the wider points about SB. Two ex players I've interviewed really rated him. So he had something. I think I'll need to acknowledge the counter argument, but accept that he basically failed when I finish writing this bit up.
  3. Which brings me back to where I started. It's 45 years ago now, so there can be a bit of objective distance. Maybe it's time to re-evaluate SB (even if only a little!)
  4. Yes, Bert McGee and Matt Sheppard swapped roles, McGee became chairman, Sheppard as vice-chairman.
  5. Only Middlesbrough, Hull, Luton and L***s I haven't been to. So will aim for a couple of them.
  6. Writing up my memorabilia section as I type - well getting a little distracted :) Anyhow, I would love to see a season ticket or two from 73-74, 74-75 or 75-76. Would anyone have one that they could take a picture of?
  7. Not necessarily disagreeing with the point, but I believe SB went before the 4-1 as that was one of Jim Macnearney's two games as caretaker manager I think.
  8. Gerry Young. It was his birthday when they sacked him and SB.
  9. Was told that there was 'sack the board' chants when he went. Though that happened most weeks I guess :) Good coach, good bloke, failed as manager I think will be the argument.
  10. Bit small, but there's the eldest on the pitch. He scored as well :) Family Fun Day last year. He has a ST on the grandstand with me. Couldn't be prouder.
  11. Not my picture, but I'm wondering if it's time to rethink Steve Burtenshaw? A couple of the ex players I've spoken to recently for my book on the period rated his coaching and enthusiasm. Set up Middlewood Rovers. And I'm told (some) fans protested about his sacking. Has anyone got any other arguments in favour? I know there are lots against :)
  12. I organised the West Mids Owls one this year. I asked whether we'd get it back. The club said that I'd probably be better getting a small one as they can't guaran tee it's return. So perhaps learned the lesson!
  13. Barging in on this thread I know. But I'm in the middle of writing a book on this period. Pop over to the thread I've linked to if anyone wants to contribute a few thoughts.
