The suppliers, were they called Memhets?

Really !!!  Warnock assuming the position , Joicey with a banana, only one possible outcome.

I've always thought Colin was a top bloke.  Would have probably got us into Prem.  Never understood the hatred for him.

Anyway, back on topic.

Ron Springett was a painter and decorator when he found time. Warnock was/is a chiropodist, and versed in greengrocery too I've just discovered.

Didn't Johnny Quinn and Gerry Young own a sports shop on Middlewood Road?

Bronco Layne had a cafe opposite Hillsborough Park.

The book 'the Wednesday Boys' tells you just about everything you need to know about our players on and off the pitch.

Absolutely amazing book, research wise. A true encyclopedia.  Well worth getting for Xmas if still in print.  If not, Amazon.

Bronco was landlord of The Crown pub on Brightside Lane just under the defunct railway bridge at the Meadowhell end of Forgemasters.
