  1. We're twinned with some nice places, Porto is fantastic. I did the Bordeaux and Hanover exchanges while at school in the early 80s. Still in contact and welcomed the daughter of my German exchange to our house last year, which was nice. I saw Bordeaux beat Nantes in about 83/4 with Alain Giresse, Tigana and Battiston playing for Bordeaux. Both Hanover and Bordeaux stadiums were quite interesting at the time. Bordeaux was an oval with a vaulted roof all the way around with fans sat on the banked cycle track around the pitch. Hanover was located next to a huge lake, the Maschsee. The floodlights looked like 4 enormous angled steel girders that seemed to defy gravity.
  2. What a truly terrible year this is. Thanks for fixing my dads knee, thanks for caring and thanks for the memories. RIP Buster.
  3. I was watching the highlights of the 1979 FA Cup final on ITV today. Man United v Arsenal. Other than it being a good game, a few things stood out. Man United had two ex City managers in their team Liam Brady could go past people like they weren't there The marching band was massive and there was two of them Neither Gary Bailey or Pat Jennings were wearing gloves The last one surprised me as I thought gloves were in by 1979. I can't really remember when gloves became the norm, were they banned from some competitions?
  4. He's the eldest of 2 brothers!
  5. My best mans grandfather was Vic Lambden.
  6. I remember seeing their open top bus ride the year before in 1989. It stopped outside the Highwayman Pub. I stood there in my City shirt and gave them a nice reverse handed wave. This was after they'd LOST in the play offs. Idiots.
  7. Yes we could. I remember a rumour spreading around the crowd (on the touchline) on the final day against Walsall, that they were losing. Alas, not the case.
  8. Can't argue with Rovers being more up for it, and that was the disappointing bit. Strange feeling though as the following night I watched us get promoted, via Ceefax!
  9. I think they still exist, just about. They we're expelled. If the season finishes early, they'll still be expelled. I hope they find a way back though.
  10. Yes, I was there. I have nothing to say about it that would be fit for broadcast!
  11. It thought you were going to say "I don't really know!"
  12. It feels a bit like using parachute payments to bolster a championship squad rather than pay wages for higher earners that have been sold anyway. It's wrong, but then so much in football is wrong and hopefully this whole episode will it help reset itself. I agree, if you haven't got the cash to pay wages, how can you have the cash to buy players (without hiding behind separate budgets nonsense). However, if a club has cashflow problems, I think they should be free to sell to another that hasn't taken cashflow measures. BigTone -Why is it always Mavis? We used to have a Gloria play for us you know.
  13. Old Bullshitians I would have thought.
  14. Haven't seen this on here, but Crystal Palace are laying claim to be the oldest professional football club. Apparently a Crystal Palace football club was formed in 1861 - pre Notts County. The original teams pitch was used for football and cricket. To save the cricket pitch, they took a 20 year "holiday" from football in 1875 and played just cricket instead. The Crystal Palace Stadium (old FA Cup final venue, not Selhurst Park) opened in 1895 and a Crystal Palace football team "resumed" playing football there. Palace are claiming that the original footballers just carried on playing cricket instead and they are therefore the oldest professional team. I can't see it myself as they weren't a football club for 20 years. Then again, if land used as a tip less than 20 years previous can be called a village green, then I guess anything goes, if you put the right spin on it.
