  1. They played some kids at Palace,Carradous who went to Villa,Donachie who at the time was a rising prospect and the CF was Glennon not sure if there were any others
  2. Burnley are saying theyl need a cash injection by august,dunno how much sky will pay for closed door football if it comes to that,after all they hold the cards.
  3. It was just a few yards up from the turnstiles as you entered either end,in between the railings,I bought a rattle from there one season,it flew out of my hand a few games later when Wednesday scored against Spurs,hit a bloke a few rows down right under his lughole,luckily the bloke saw the funny side,for him as well as my old fella was a proper hard bugger.It was one of the multi coloured small ones that were popular at that time,wooden all the same so it must have hurt
  4. People said the same about Rhodes,the rotation footballs really done him no favours,he looks a shadow of the player he was,hes lost that edge and instinct,will he ever rediscover it? Its anyones guess. Its sad to see.
  5. I can recall when it was a little wooden shed with windows,situated between the north stand and leppings lane,you could buy from the window at either side,mostly badges and stickers,scarfs and bobble hats match day programme or a pennant,back in the day before football got all commercialised with shirts every season and sponsors logos allover your pasty.
  6. The scrubbers giving it the big un before the BDM,all that racket about "top of the league" and watching them leaving the exits in the north stand,they were all on the back row as well and had to walk past us all on their way home to choke on their turkey. What a chrimbo that was
  7. nearly,bottom line is two jeff johnsons and two hugh dowds,just hes got a tash and a perm in the 2nd Really hope some of you lot arent drivers,your eyesight n memory is shocking
  8. Leeds players,coaching staff and senior managers have already taken a wage deferal.why are ours dragging their feet?
  9. Pete Eustace at Leeds in the replayed FA Cup 3rd round game,he was phenominal,his finest game for us without a shadow. Les Cocker walked straight over to him at the end of the match and shook his hand and then did the same with the other Owls players that night,he made it look like the matrix,he won headers tackles never wasted a pass,he was the best player on the park that night,every move came through him
  10. Hunt was a far better player than Palmer will ever be,which is why Palmer couldnt keep him out of the side,but Buxton was a better crosser
  11. Not a pop at KH as such but the glut of footballers in general that have taken to social media to preach to people about isolation,Jack Grealish has gone out to prove the perfect example by visiting an all night party allegedly,footballers arent the brightest and not always the best role models,they just kick a ball about on saturday. The people that are pivotal in getting the country through this are amongst the lowest waged in society,supermarket staff on mostly minimum wage,delivery drivers,binmen,support workers,carers many of whom will go home to one bed flats and maisonettes.Not to mention all the nurses,emergency services & hospital support staff. To be honest bud,Id sooner they stuck the message out their at the end of their shift,to show what its REALLY like,they dont get the choice to isolate,they HAVE to work.rather than some jumped up millionaire talking from his indoor heated pool or gym,with a garden big enough to stick his own football pitch in.like Ive been seeing. But hey big up to Grealish for sticking the message out there!!!!
  12. Multi millionaire with every privallage on the planet asks peope to respect self isolation respect dude,or not depends on your mood dude
  13. Easy this,Birmingham City in Jan,1969,FA cup 4th round,their supporters that day just roared them on,leppings lane and some parts of both the south and north stand were rammed with Brummies,I can honestly say in ALL my years going to Hillsborough,I have NEVER seen support like that,when they sang "Walk On" at 1-2 to them,it was a sea of blue and white and it was DEAFENING,there wasnt an inch of that end that didnt hold up a blue and white scarf,even the NW corner as its now known,its stuck with me all these years from being a kid,they were an absolute credit to a very good side,over 52,000 that day in the ground
  14. If the season isnt finished by the end of May surely its an unfinished season and will be classed as such, so void. The prospects for the following season starting on time dont look good,restrictions could last well past summer. The most important thing is that as a nation,we all pull in the same direction and wipe this thing off the planet,and turn our support to those who are trying their best to fight it. The recriminations will come at the inquest,which will be VERY interesting,but untill then,lets stay safe and heed the advice
  15. Definately whole hearted Il give him that! Guess I cant hide the fact I never liked him,that never changed from his 1st to last game,he was clumsy and awkward and had a 50p shaped head,like Sam Ellis,god knows what our scouts saw in him,there was some real talent about at that time,our scouts must have been on dope. He moved to cardiff and got something like 16 goals in 20 games,2 against us FFS and a hatrick at blackpool or somewhere,then reverted back to 6 for the season,the 40 odd grand we got for him was daylight robbery,about our one good bit of business for about 8 years. Him and Steve Downes were shocking buys,wed have been far better off buying Greenhoff off leeds and Macdonald at fulham,saved a good few quid and got some hungry young talent in
  16. Not watched it,but is this the game where Warboys shot and it only just stayed in the ground it didnt get any better after, he went around 16 games without bothering a keeper,way out of his depth in the upper leagues
  17. If only....rumour was we were offered him for 5M in Chansiris first season,lets not dwell on what might have been eh.......
  18. Close but no cigar. it was 1968,you got the rest spot on
  19. Quite liked Bolder personally,we played swindon one night and he must have made 15 saves,some of them were real quality stops,we won 2-1,we should have been 4 down by halftime they were allover us,his reflex saves were stunning
  20. Woohoo lets spunk another 50 mill on some more garbage
  21. I cant see football bieng played untill next year,this virus is a real game changer and will have far reaching consequences for years to come on social structures world wide
  22. Were its gone wrong for me was in the transfer window,2 strikers and a winger? Our need is in defence and CM,especially when most games we have one up front,weve now got 7 strikers yet weve been shipping goals,we needed an experienced keeper,big commanding CB,and a strong CM,which Iorfa could possibly be if theres cover at CB,in which case we could have brought in a FB. Our recruitment is so bad its beyond belief
  23. Nay need to worry boys,Carlos wants us all to play for him in bloody portugal next window,even Jordan,all together now "Were in the money the futures sunny"
  24. Dont agree with Ashurst,he started the climb back up the table and begun to sow the seeds of positivity,got us upto 8th in his first full season,bought some decent players,Tynan,Paul Bradshaw,Jeff Johnson,Leman,Rushbury,Richard Walden and gave a debut to chris turner
