Go West

Recommended Posts

Go west....  -  lyrics to 80's classic "We close our eyes"

 

We close our eyes we never lose a game
Imagination never lets us take the blame
We close our eyes to see the final frame
We close our eyes to time slipping away

No show Wednesday girl waits with the wine
She knows just what to say
While no one listens
You can almost hear time slipping away

 

lol

Colin West was on the touchline in Hillsborough, as assistant manager to Keith Curle at Carlisle, a few weeks back

I remember a really poor miss from Colin at 0-0 in the infamous 0-5 third replay defeat to Everton...

Who remembers this chap? 

 

Is he playing for Leeds in that picture?

I think the hole to the kop concourse from the stands should be renamed in West's honour.

Has any footage of THAT penalty ever materialised?

 

Wasn't every home game available of VHS in those days? You know the ones with the overexcited, but crap commentator and the bad spelling on the graphics (Hirst as Hurst, etc.).

I think most wenesday fans were surprised when he stepped forward to take it.

You would normally expect groans when a penalty was missed but nearly everyone was laughing and the rest were amazed at what they had just seen. for those thet did not see it it went almost vertical from his boot and went at least 40 foot in The only danger to opposition was to theirgoalkeper who ricked his neck in watching ball. When the ball came down ref was not able to blow whistle for laughing it was that amazing.

I have never seen a worse attempt at a penalty

Interestingly best penalty I have ever seen taken for any team was by Kevin Pressman for us against Wolves.
