  1. Apologies Alan Hodgkinson was not the previous record holder, but he was Springett’s understudy in the 1962 World Cup
  2. I think one of the spin offs of having SB, apart from his coaching qualities will be his knowledge of the English game. He will have a clear understanding of the value of players unlike previous advisors who may even have benefited from paying over the odds
  3. Could be back to Portugal. SB has a house alongside Vila Sol golf course
  4. Has to be Ron Springett, a hero of mine as I grew up. In his time he was the most capped goalkeeper for England, having taken that record from Alan Hodgkinson, who played for the Blades. Part of the 1966 World Cup squad.
  5. Having given some thought following yesterday’s game, I think there are few you would say we must keep. I would however put Reach in that category. It is important to put down a marker about the ambition we have and selling players with reputations gives a negative impression. Consequently I would not sell Westwood, Hutchinson, Bannan, Reach Lees, or Fletcher. Any if the rest can go if the price is right
  6. Easy to change and becomes acceptable You are our Steve Bruce, our only Steve Bruce etc
  7. I have recently posted that I think one way of tying in more people would be to have a half season ticket based on games attended rather than time. Many supporters as evidenced in replies here cannot attend every game for many varied reasons. While this is a novel way forward it would commit more fans to the club, which seems to be one of their objectives
  8. Some fantastic players from the past mentioned in this article
  9. Remember David Sunley’s. Disappeared very quickly
  10. Great deal if consistency in the comments underlines a fine team performance. Interesting to see Hutchinson pushing further forward and definitely MOM. Left side if the field looked much more compact and gives the other defenders more confidence. Also feel an interesting difference since Bruce cane is the talking between the players which clearly demonstrates a different attitude.
  11. You should try them pastels de nata mate they are something else.
  12. Only managed to get 4/1 but still think of it as an investment rather than a bet.
  13. The thought I had about part timers season tickets would cover this. Why not have a half season ticket that is match constrained not time constrained. Modern technology should easily be able to manage this
  14. I know occasional attenders are not always looked in here with affection, but there are many reasons why some of us only attend a certain number of times a season. In theses circumstances a season ticket is totally impractical. Perhaps consideration should be given to a part time season ticket, which allows entry to a certain number of games and through which the individual makes a commitment to the club
  15. Both full backs did OK today. But his many times they had the ball and couldn’t attack the space down the line. It seems they prefer to cross from half way inside the opposition half instead of getting to the by line
  16. One of JLs strengths when he came was said to be a disciplinarian. Well I think he has now shown who is boss and more power to his elbow
  17. I was there and will forever remember the leap from Peter Swan when he ran onto the pitch..
  18. Ive no idea why but I'm sure it was later than 1965. I would think more likely 68/69
  19. Springett Nillson. Pearson. Walker. Worthington Waddle. Palmer. Craig. Curran . Hirst. Fantham Subs. Hodge. Sterland. Sheridan. DiCanio. Bannister
  20. IT was Sheffield's Human League, but I think Phil Oakey is a Unitedite
