    Was there not some doubt that the game wouldn’t even go ahead because of fog?

    England

    Martin Tyler is nauseating about everything. He’s past it as a commentator. He actually doesn’t commentate at all, just mumbles away about anything other than the match.
  3. On this performance I don’t think I have ever seen a more clueless Rovers team than this in my 60 years of following them. TM seems just as clueless as the players.

    What a fabulous night that was, and I can remember it like it was yesterday. Sadly realising what has happened since those heady days, in reality it’s more like a lifetime. Nothing can rob us of the memories though.

    Football Magazines

    Sorry it’s blurred. It’s March 1965, agree on Fed Else and Mick McGrath. What I couldn’t work out was which ground it is. Facia of stand is either Sunderland, Everton or Spurs. The attacking forward has red socks which would lead me to think Sunderland, but facia is the wrong colour.

    Absolutely the best football annual ever published. My favourite football magazine was undoubtedly Charles Buchans Football Monthly. Maybe it’s an age thing

    Here here Bazza. Too many clever dicks these days among so called commentators constantly churning out statistics rather than actually commenting on the game. Tyler being one of the worst. Oh for the likes of Brian Moore or Kenneth Wolstenhome.

    Tommy Docherty on Lorenzo Amoruso ” Somebody compared him to Billy McNeil, but I don’t remember Billy being crap.”

    Another classic from Big Ron ”Well Clive, It’s all about the two M’s. Movement and positioning.”

    I must be losing it because I had it in mind that Speedie climbed up the fence at the Darwen end after his hat trick goal against Newcastle, but not in the clip. What a player Speedie was.

    Premier League Stuff

    Not regarding PL and EFL they didn’t. It was down to individual players.

    “Black Lives Matter” on the shirts,and of course they do. But remember when the poppy wasn’t allowed on England shirts, and some PL and EFL players chose not to wear a poppy on their club shirts. The poppy stands for the memory of lost servicemen and women of all colours and creeds. Just a thought.

    Rovers in Netflix football series

    Another example of historical manipulation. Brockhall first opened in 1907 as an institution for inebriated women, so didn’t exist when the period of the film is set.
  18. This is soo difficult when you consider the players from the UK and Ireland who have played for the club. We were truly blessed with a very high standard over the years. I can’t argue with Shearer or Bellamy in the line up but I’ve always had a soft spot for David Speedie because of how he got us through to the play offs and how he got us that penalty. Also as far as strikers go, even Tyrone hasn’t mentioned Andy McEvoy.
  19. I would definitely have Mike England in the team and also Keith Newton was a better full back than any that have been mentioned
  20. Tyrone may remember better than I do but I seem to think that Bill Eckersley’s testimonial, many stars of his era turned out including Tom Finney, but Stan Mathews didn’t because he requested a fee to play. It is also in the back of my mind that Eckersley’s partner at full back in the England team was Alf Ramsey.
  21. Can Rovers report Williams to Trading Standards and get their money back?
  22. If this team were playing outside my front window I’d be drawing the curtains. I hate Paul Cook but I wish TM would give our lot a team talk like Cooks at HT.
