  1. Great choices. I remember with Brady that I kept hearing what a talent he was but thought it was over hyped. We only seen highlights of other teams back then and from what I saw he seemed no better than the likes of Alan Hudson, Hoddle, Brooking or a host of other creative or attacking midfielders in the top flight. But in that 3-1 defeat at home to Arsenal he was absolutely superb. Better than any player I seen during those four years of top flight football. Totally ran the show. Head and shoulders above anyone else on the pitch that day. On my return home I pondered on what the Sunday
  2. Whdn I was 16 I bought one that kept shouting out "more" each time a vital thrust was made. Had to wait until my parents were out to avoid embarrassment. Fortunately, Xmas Eve morning they set off very early so I got to work. But when my parents returned later they were dumbfounded. They said that the milkman had left 143 pints on our doorstep!!
  3. Actually, since I ditched BTSport a couple of years back in favour of Sky with the red button I have since discovered that they're on Hennes IX now. Poor old Hennes VIII all those wives draining him must have contributed to his early demise.
  4. Before Hitchens there was a Stoke defender called Neil Franklin, I think, who played in the Columbian League for more dosh in the early fifties. He was also an Englan international and was subsequently banned iirc.
  5. I have a few Koln shirts. They're my choice for a German team. Plus they play in red and white and have their mascot, Hennes the goat on their badge which also incorporates Cologne Cathedral. Rather like our old robin badge with the Suspension Bridge. Hennes attends every home game and stays on the touchline. He's currently Hennes VIII.
  6. I didn't want to give too much away.
  7. I recall that Coppell, while giving his excuses why he wasn't taking up the job immediately, endeavoured to pacify any criticism by stating that he was watching the DVDs of all City's matches home and away that season. Each further update before he took up residence in the manager's office at BS3, brought a progress report on his viewing of these DVDs. "I've now watched 29 of them." He got to about 37 when they went on a preseason tour and he took up the reigns and was hoping to see all 46 by the season's commencement plus the extra cup matches (I think these were thrown in as a freebie
  8. If it happens with ten minutes to go in the match and half the Dolman stand cut outs quickly vacate the arena, it will definitely add to the realism.
  9. I was going to watch the 1970 Final, my first, as a seven and a half year old. But ended up trying to find a four leaf clover in my back garden. My mum had told me that they were extremely rare and would be really valuable or provide luck for me if I found one. I remember watching England v Brazil in 1970 WC, as well as England v Czechoslovakia where a clever Allan Clarke penalty brought England the win. I remember being thrilled by the Brazilians. As a seven year old I knew I was watching something special. I don't recall watching England's exit at all, but did see the final. Later that
  10. This is my nomination for Post of the Week.
  11. I think you are right, I have a recollection of this picture being on this forum 3 or 4 years ago and the General consensus was that it was the match to which you refer.
  12. Actually, upon closer inspection it could be the City v Liverpool preseason friendlyAugust 1985. Changed my mind as some of clothing sported by the spectators seems post 1970s and I cannot detect diamonds on the City sleeves, and the covered end has a red roof.Was black during our time in the top flight.
