I have no memory of 11 - Durrell? Can anyone remind me? I have found a Wikipedia entry that says he only played 8 games for us, so I think that must explain it.

Thanks for that, my first ever away game, I was 11.

All I remember is it being incredibly windy & Rovers being shit, some things never change.

Left winger, got him on a free from West Ham.

Whitehead’s emergence meant he never got a look in, really.

Great footage. Noticeably less pace and skill in the game compared to what we've become used to in the modern day. 

I like how Roger Malone refers to 'young Bater'. Presumably he didn't feel he could get away with 'young Master Bater', but we knew what he meant 😆

(just kidding chaps,  nothing but respect for my elders!)

Seriously, you don't know what you missed Fordy.

What an atmosphere, what a comeback, what a memorable day even 45 years later.

Biting wind in our faces on an open terrace, getting soaked, watching a thoroughly committed City team battle their way back to absolutely smash Rovers on their own 'ground' (even better after they thought they'd won at half time)

Just brilliant, the memory of such fantastic days following City in our youth is what drives many of us to still turn up all these years later to watch the far duller fare of today.

Oh, and what a goal that was by Trevor Tainton!

All achieved without Gerry Gow in the line up as well - presumably injured, but not sure RM mentioned his absence.
