Recommended Posts



Posted this in the dressing room a few days ago - found these while doing some tidying up. From the early/mid 80s.

Some Wednesday greats there 

And a Gonk 

 

 

 

 

And Peter Grummitt ...

WTF:

 

 

 

Was Peter Grummitt really no good?  I always thought of him as a decent keeper, but I was too young to be a reliable judge.  He did play in the 1st division for Forest and us, but only went on to Brighton afterwards.  I remember he came 2nd once in Save of the Season on Sportsnight With Coleman - a reaction save from a close range header at home to QPR.  

 

It's good to see Johnny Sissons there - he was great in his short time with us.  I remember the roar from the cantilever as he shot down the left wing.  Peter Rodrigues was excellent too.  Jimmy Mullen was capable enough, and we all loved Prendo.  That just leaves Steve Downes; I don't like to criticise people on the internet, but he was never one of our greats!

Yes ....

In my opinion 

But Torry Owl rated him I think so best not use my opinion as an accurate Barometer ?

All I remember is letting ball go between his legs many many times ..

Thankfully for him Match of the day didn't have an award for that 

He would have cleaned the board ...

One man's muck is another man's gold though Alfie ....

Funnily enough I remember Grummitt flying across the goal a few times to tip the ball around the post. I may have dreamt it...

Didn't dream an away trip to Blackpool though c.1971, when Sissons belted the ball towards goal from about 30 yards and smacked defender Peter Suddaby right in the kisser, putting him on his back. Great moment.
