  1. He put me in mind of Lance Corporal Jones from Dad's Army. Meant well but always out of step.
  2. Had to get up way too early on Boxing Day as it was, so not for me ta. Not sure why the fixture gods could not home come with a closer match in the first place like Reading or West Brom.
  3. RIP Gerry Sharpe and condolences to your family. Like many who have already posted, when I started watching City in 1967 Gerry was an established player. He glided past defenders and always scored his fair share. He reached double figures in each of his last three seasons. That terrible day against Middlesbrough is memorable for many reasons, none of them good. The outstanding memory I have of Gerry was a goal against Blackburn in March 1970. City won 4-0 that day and I stood at the front of the East End behind the goal. I think we must have been at least two up when Gerry scored because instead of just slotting home from close range he flicked the ball up and headed it in. I should say this is my memory of it, from a few feet away. Part of the mystique of that era is we don't have multiple camera angles to confirm or perhaps spoil our recollections. It is, as many have said very sad to read of Gerry's death.

    Seems so. Hope COD is angry and ready to take it out on Forest
  5. Very sad to hear this. I can only echo what others have said. Beezer was a lovely bloke, always good for a chat and a laugh as part of the City family. Rest in peace, Beezer. Condolences to his family and friends.
  6. Fair play. Maybe Brighton can pay us the extra £5m too.
  7. Exactly. Must be brimming with confidence surely.
  8. That run of games from February 12 looks pivotal from this distance …. Derby home, Leeds away, West Brom home, Huddersfield and Millwall away.
  9. I don't think there was. I do remember HTV following up the story the next day and Roger Malone tried to get Cash to do it again in broad daylight. Of course the wind had dropped by then and the whole stunt looked silly. I was also on the East End that night and can only echo what has already been said. I think there was a split second where we saw the bounce of the ball leave the keeper stranded and we thought this could go in . . . yessssss!
  10. I recorded it but they did not show the goal I'm afraid. Interesting to look back at that era all the same. You forget that all the pitches were mudheaps and how many fouls players could get away with before maybe getting a booking.
  11. Went to both games. I think Gillies scored at Southampton, my brother joked that it went in off his ear! The Norwich game was so frustrating - seen a few of those over the years. Saying that Norwich were very composed. I think it was Peter Morris who did not put a foot wrong. I hated him that day mind.
  12. I took a risk there I know Good point about the badge.
  13. Err . . . are we getting new ones if we have just renewed the same seat?!
