Only listened to the Ken Furphy one so far. Loved it.

It really captures the revivalism of those times. Tony Field, Kit Napier and Johnny Price...wonderful memories!. Gutted, when Furphy went to Sheffield and kept coming back for our players. One of my mates compared the fans in those days to the disciples after the crucifixion. He was never one for understatement!

I remember a very sarcastic letter in the LET, saying how we might as well change our name to Sheffield Utd Reserves.

But-not unlike that darkest of days at at Selhurst Park, you can never know what joys are around the corner...with Gordon Lee...
