#OnThisDay in 1981

Recommended Posts

We were truly on our way back.

Proper shirt and a bit more quality - even if one of Bannisters legs was shorter than the other...

Didnt stop him getting 20 goals a season for the next 3 years.

Proper kit :wub:

Didn't 'Purdie' get 22 goals for each of the 3 seasons?

Amazing consistency.

 

I was heartbroken when he left us for QPR.

QPR ffs! We had just been promoted and I'll i could think about against Forest was Banno not being in the team, i was only a nipper.

 

Mind you, that Varadi goal soon made me forget!

Purdies were for lasses - lads had "Wedges"  ;-)

Thought it was that one of his legs was LONGER than the other, oh well...

 

Pretty sure I went to this, but thought it ended 1-1, unless I'm thinking of season before.

 

Curran/Bannister in same side.

I will echo what Pulsar said..i was gutted when Bannister left, could never understand it , i think at the time it was intimated that he wasn`t keen on Wilko,s "style"

Was a shame he left - was convinced he would be just as lethal in the first division...

And we never had a striker like Banno till Hirsty came in.

And we never had a midfielder like Meggo till Carlton came in.

And we’ve never had anyone in either position since then to touch them

That's what i had but Banno's was definitely a 'Purdie' Mr Dunsby Sir because his brother, Charlie Williamson :ph34r: had the same.

Yep, remember reading that and QPR did play some nice football on their greengrocer 'slide tackle burns' astro turf.

He was, only with Her Majesty's Rangers.

Banno. Best finisher I ever saw for the Owls. Back then we were told that his missus wanted to go to London but saw a “QPR legends” interview not long back when he said he was happy at Wednesday and Wilko just sold him.....
