Was this the same game where we were 2:0 up, they got it back to 2:2 and Shelton's was the late winner??

No mate. We won 1 0 with a late winner.

A real ' Jack in the Box ' type Midfield Player who got crucial goals at the right moment..A True pro compared to some of the absolute dross that we have in the present squad.:tango:

Yup. We went there about a month later (November) and lost 1-0, I think.

 

I remember their song:

 

He's only a poor little cockney.

His clothes are all tattered and torn.

He came for a fight.

So we set him alight.

And now he don't come anymore.

My memory says it was a tyre company near Barnsley, but I wouldn't bet any body parts on it.

Sorry, no idea now and probably very few people had any idea then. Maybe a company dreamt up by Bert McGee to get around financial restrictions?

 

Trivia fact about that photo - both the Liverpool players ,whose faces you can see, later signed for Wednesday,

Loved Shelts... I remember him talking in an interview  about his unusually long arms ...like a flippin gibbon.

If he was around now there would be a love fest thread about him every week.

When he crossed the white line he gave everything for Wednesday,

Here you go enjoy the memories

 

 

 

Love the commentary..." Sheffield Wednesday score from a set piece...that they've rehearsed countless times this season...and practice has made perfect."

 

The throw in from Sterland was touched by 3 Newcastle players before Megson headed it over to Shelton. Tactical genius from Wilkinson to involve the Newcastle players in our set piece rehearsals.

Tough call...but Shelton is 62 and retired in 1998 so probably Bannan

Shelts was a great signing and fantastic player for us.

 

Not many players could have worked so well in Sgt Wilko's 5-2-3 formation which took other teams by surprise.

 

The work that Shelts and Megson got through in midfield was outstanding.

This. They were immense and Shelts never backed off anything. In the promotion season, we must have played about 55 matches and they hardly missed a game between them. And today players get arsey if they have to play 3 games in a week.

We played 53 games that season in all competitions. Lyons started every game, Megson all except 1 and Shelton missed 4.
