I used to go on croftys coach all the time in the early nineties. Good good times!!!!! Diamond travel coach.

Went to the 93 FA cup final and the bugger broke down on the M1. 52 Wednesday fans hitching lifts from the hard shoulder. Cars were pulling over from the fast lane in droves to pick us all up.

Last i heard he was running a bar in Tenerife between Los Christianos and Americas.

Been over a couple times on holiday in the last few years and have made a point of going to his bar both times but its always been closed so i aint got a clue whether he`s still over there or not.

Was it Crofty's coach that got the back window put through whilst we stopped off in that village coming back from Derby after the FA Cup QF 3-3 draw, it was flipping freezing coming up M1 :ph34r:

Crofty is still in Tenerife and came over towards the end of last season. As far as I know he is selling sports shirts to anyone who will buy one and is making a very good living.Still a big critic of the owls but a Wednesdayite thro and thro.

Croftys coming over for the derby match if anyones interested. He should be found somewhere near Hillsborough Corner before and after the game.

Seen Crofty in Hillsborough Club (Bradfield Road) before derby game He's over for 11 days to fit in as many Owls games as he can. He's finished his book and is trying to get it published.He recons he's got a good chance.Should make a good read.

Hello mate,

I went to The Corner Shop in Hillsborough before Christmas and asked for the book and he said to me 'I only have this one copy I was sent'.

He let me buy his one and only used copy for the cover price which I was happy to pay as I'd had my mate go round looking for you on the Kop at half time for both matches you said you were over but he couldn't find you :angry:

Are you now saying The Corner Shop has a supply?
