    Players who never quite made it

    George Best got 37 caps if memory serves. An attempt was made to get him fit for the 1982 World Cup in Spain. I think George went to Boro to try to regain his fitness but couldn't make it. He was around 37 years old. My favourite ever winger Noel played in that tournament instead of Best so it wasn't all bad.
  2. Who is this xyz character? Chinese? Who is his agent? Never heard of him but he sounds perfect for us.

    THE BATTLE FOR PROMOTION....WON.

    I remember that the game was shown on 'The Big Match' the following day. Neil Ramsbottom was our keeper if I recall correctly. My only memory of the game is that he was nearly beaten from the centre circle from the kick off. Also, my brother was seen on the telly in the Riverside. I can't find a copy of the game online anywhere, would love to see it again.

    Mowbray won't start Bell this weekend. Williams was player of last season and an ever present this year. Mowbray isn't that ruthless. However, if Bell does have pace then he needs bringing in sooner rather than later. We have been too slow and static all season and Mowbray' s recent signings show that he identifies this as a problem that needs rectifying. Williams is just a bog standard full back and Bell could make a huge difference if he can live up to his promise.

    A lot of Danny Graham' s finishes are strongly reminiscent of Garner. From up in the stands, Graham sometimes resembles the great man at a glance with the number 10 on his back. If Graham was lighter footed and quicker he would be a spot on comparison.

    His third goal that day was up there with the great goals on Ewood in my lifetime; a deft flick into space completely took two defenders out, an incredibly quick ten yard dash beat a third defender to the ball and a deadly accurate right footer saw the ball hit the inside of the post and into the net. He was lethal that season.

    I wish you well with this quest. To the best of my recollection games were not routinely filmed until circa '88/'89 season. Until then we had to rely on the BBC / ITV, therefore there may only be footage of perhaps three or four games per season during Garner' s first decade playing for us - '78-'88. Of course he didn't necessarily score in those filmed games although I always thought he turned it on a little for the cameras This lack of footage is a great pity. His five against Derby and his four against Sunderland (?) weren't recorded to the best of my knowledge. I certainly haven't seen them since. So many of his wonderful finishes sadly only exist in the memory bank. I don't remember a Garner hat trick against Burnley although he generally scored when we played them, including two penalties in one game if I recall correctly. YouTube has a number of his goals, perhaps thirty or so. His great goal against Liverpool in the FA cup '83 was recorded but I haven't seen it on YouTube. The Elton Welsby fronted 'Kick Off' magazine show in the late 80's showed all his goals, which would amount to forty or so in his final four seasons between '88-'92. I would wager about another thirty or forty across the rest of his career at Rovers were filmed so probably close to eighty goals in total have existed on video at one time or another. It can be fruitful searching YouTube for other clubs. For example, a Garner goal away at Swindon in '84 in the FA cup is on there. I went to that game so it was nice to see it again recently. If anyone has footage on video of Rovers matches that aren't on YouTube I am happy to convert them and publish it for all of us to enjoy. I live locally but have limited time so only really want to commit to videos from the '70's/'80's.

    RIP Cyrille Regis

    I seem to remember he paired with Garner at the end of their careers- probably at Wycombe. In their prime, that combination of differing styles would have worked beautifully. R.I.P
