Can any of our players actually write?

 

Those scribbles are unintelligible!

 

I can't make out many of these, the numbers on the shirt do help mind!

I'm in the middle of writing and researching a book about the Owls darkest times 73-76 (there's a thread about it in the history section). Published next year by the same people who did Carlton Palmer and Lee Bullen's books - Vertical Editions.

 

Anyhow, one chapter will be on memorabilia - so if anyone has anything they've kept from those dark times that they'd like to see in print give me a shout.

 

I'd love to see a season ticket from back then - not sure there are any left!

Sorry if wrong section.

 

I found these during a clear out. Be interested to know if there’s many knocking around/value.

Lovely plates but I'm more interested in the Mark One carrier bags, talk about blasts from the past.

@long eared owl I'd guess somewhere between 1965 and 1972. The owl is wearing the solid blue kit.

 

Got to be after '65.  Ozzie wasn't born until '66 or '67.  I wish I'd kept my old programmes.

Im annoyed that when i went to Luxembourg and looked for the Spora ground - it "didnt exist" ... turns out theyd gone bust/rebranded and the stadium was just round the corner from the hotel.

Funny thing being, there's a degree of fondness for it all. Think Tommy Craig,  Mick Prendergast, Willie Henderson.

 

4-4 vs Man United,  last day escapes,  proper away days, standing at both ends of the ground, the Ozzie Owl Club. .. I could go on :)

 

So, not a natural happy read given the club's position - but deserves to be well remembered I think  

 

Buy the book next year and judget for yourself though :)

No wasnt having a go. Started going in 72 when I was 3 with my dad. Seem to remember spending most of my time running around on the empty terraces at Lepp end (must have allowed home fans then) no fences. In fairness football was all new to be at that age so positive is that I didn't realise we were that bad. 

Do remember some decrepid away grounds old Walsall seems to stick in my mind for some reason. Mick Prendergast was my first idol.
