  1. Morton was a night match. The week before Brian Joicey scored a late one against Oxford for our first goal in ages. Brian Joicey had a testimonial also. He was at Barnsley though.
  2. Just checked. We played Burnley on 4th round day 1975 (lost 1-3). Morton was in April. Won 2-0. Still rare chances to see goals.
  3. The Morton one one was played on FA Cup 4th round day. We were out. Provided Owls fans with a rare chance of seeing some goals in that long barren period of early 1975. I learned recently that it was quite common to play friendlies that weekend. Our porcine neighbours played West Brom and others in the 70s.
  4. I believe that the spectacularly tall defender Frederick Nielsen - who played a handful of games under J** - is Danish.
  5. Im on with researching and writing a sequel of sorts to my first book 'Our Lowest Ebb?' at the minute. Going to focus on 84/5 and 85/6 as the team returned to D1. The comments here echo absolutely why I'm doing it, and the themes of the book. To illustrate it nicely here's Mike Lyons smacking one home Vs Chelsea in 1985. Just look at the Kop though
  6. Blimey. I wonder why I thought of the two Steves in starting this thread nine years ago! Recently, I have been reminded of their efforts in the excellent '91 book. They are both worth their footnote in Owls history I think
  7. I was lucky enough to interview him recently for my upcoming book on the Owls in the mid-80s. Great guy. Lots of interesting stories from that period. He was gutted not to play in the semi-final in 86 though.
  8. Sat near Pete McKee in the Grandstand a couple of times If Roy Hattersley is famous, I saw him at Notts County in 1991. Not a huge amount of famous people in nearly 40 years of watching!
  9. I've said it before, and I'll say it again... There's a ? in the title for a number of reasons
  10. Yes, you are right my mistake (as the original Tweeter). He returned on loan and then signed full time soon afterwards.
  11. Great stuff - thank you. It is certainly on Amazon's UK site - so I guess for Canada also. I'd happily send you one from here also - signed/dedicated if you like. Downside is it's a few quid in postage Cheers and UTO - John
  12. Steve Burtenshaw was involved in the linking of Middlewood Rovers to SWFC. This of course came to fruition later in the 70s/early 80s with Mel Sterland, Mark Smith and all. He was fined as a result of the investigations into the so-called 'bungs' scandal in the 90s. I spoke to lots of people in regards to my book 'Our Lowest Ebb?' (available at all good bookshops now!) - Steve Burtenshaw intitially agreed to meet, but pulled out. The reason being that he found it a bit upsetting and too depressing to think about. I didn't push it - as the guy's in his 80s now.
  13. There are definitely ways and means that wouldn't necessarily mean the club needed to refund people. How about: Free tickets for Cup Games One game a season in the executive area/restaurants Free/discounted merchandise Bring a friend for free once or twice each season? Just needs some thought putting into it.
  14. Not my picture that one, but I think it's Colin Harvey?
  15. I'm assuming there are flares here, given the size of the collars and ties.
  16. Maybe there should be another thread for 70s Owls in flares with musicians? Here's John Holsgrove with the Barron Knights.
  17. 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.
