#OnThisDay 50 years ago - sounds familar? :-). The Wednesday Way.

 

Jim McCalliog "The club keeps talking about success but it never seems to come.  We are just not getting anywhere and I want to be in a side that is going to win something.  I feel like I am playing in a vaccuum".

 

But for a few seasons in the early 1990s we've had half a century of this  but still #WAWAW

Hang on, did he go to Southampton? I'll drive him to the station then.

He went to Wolves and Man Utd before making his way to Southampton.

I don't recall him being skipper ….megson was still a regular at that time  and he was always the captain.

You've got to remember those guys weren't on the megabucks that todays players earn, dude. They couldn't play for a couple of years then retire set up for life on what they earned. Quite a lot of players back then would end up in menial jobs after they retired from football and a few of them would even end up signing on the dole.

I have much more respect for the players of that era than I do for today's players. They were much more a part of the community and so, so many of them were loyal to the club they played for.

Neither can some of todays millionaire players. Lots of them spend their fortunes on, bookies, booze, fast women, and lavish holidays, then squander the rest.

That was a really miserable summer  the start of a dreadful decade that followed .  Some great players just vanished into thin air and got replaced by mediocrity.  Seen it a couple of times since then as well.

 

This summer feels just the opposite.

problem the club has 'highlighted' by player, player to be 'disciplined' for it, way to go...

I wonder why shortly after I was watching division 2 football?

and as I remember the chant of the day was 'TAYLOR OUT, TAYLOR OUT, TAYLOR OUT', I had to ask my mate who this taylor bloke was who everybody wanted out? as the cushions went on yet again.

Yeah that was the beginning of the end as far as us ever doing anything under Eric Taylor...we had a World Cup ground but wouldn't spend money in making the team fit for it

Summer of 69,the start of the slide.Thered been unrest all season long,Marshalls tactics had proved deeply unpopular among the players.

I loved McCalliog,as most of us did,but watching him score the winner late in that wolves game in august 69,was like a dagger in the nutz,still hurts after all these years,my first real taste of what being an Owl fan would be like LOL

I fell out with him when he was interviewed after '66 and sounded disappointed we had beaten Chelsea

I feel like someone has stolen my wedding speech. But I dont think anyone would ever call Grandad's caravan at Bridlington South Beach lavish. Lavatorial perhaps.
