I've got a Football Focus piece on Leicester v Palace with Des Lynham in flares up there, when Kember gets knocked out and the last minute equaliser with Palace fans going mental in the corner, and the goals at Sunderland. Both on shitty film that they used to use in those days when a game wasn't televised 'properly'. Are they on the DVD? I will have to find time to dig stuff out boxes and somehow post clips up. I know a lot of my earlier stuff went missing when I moved to Spain, very upsetting.

Re the comb-over slapheads, they always used to look about 50 to me, but I suppose they were just the same age as the baldies we see now, but growing their hair long and pulling it over the top aged them by 20 years.

With the comb-overs, did they think no one would notice? And did they think those four precious strands of thin hair scraped precariously across their spam would withstand 90 minutes on muddy pitches, in pissing conditions, with balls that weighed four stone and against opponents who wanted to rip your fvcking head off?

I wonder if it didn't affect Bobby Charlton's game as it goes. Was he too worried about his hair to really give it his all? After all, he only got 106 England caps - what a waste of talent

I did love brian moores commentry, especially when one shot went wide, "oh that was inches wide" yes Brain approx 100 inches!
I'll let him off as he probably had that bloody Stanchion in the way.

Newcastle were even worse then than they are today; 3 down at half time to Brighton? :eek: Looking at the bottom of the table it's fascinating to see who was relegated that season - Blackburn, Millwall and Sheffield Utd.

What a terrible theme tune to "The Kick Off Game"!

Have there ever been as many away fans at games as at that weekend?

A good mate of mine from up North reckons that Brighton's support for the 78/79 match was the biggest from a Southern side at St James's at that time. Not that I should really be giving them any credit I suppose. . .

Chobham Eagle 07-05-2009 10:56 PM

I wasn't at the Orient game as I was up in Durham at university, but I assume that at one point the Palace fans who were there thought we were up - until Sunderland scored that late goal?

Surprised to see yet another of our disappointing 80's signings, David Giles, playing for Wrexham in that match. I knew he'd played for Cardiff before we signed him from Swansea too so he obviously wasn't keen on venturing too far from Wales. Amazingly he won 12 Welsh caps too apparently, including a starring role and a goal in England's infamous 4-1 defeat at The Racecourse Ground in 1980.

But he turned out to be just like Alex Dyer. Looked excellent whenever he played against us and scored a beauty meaning that I was delighted when I heard that we'd signed him. Inevitably, he turned out to be utterly mediocre.

Scored a decent goal at Watford for us though.

Exactly what I thought when I watched that, I too thought of Alex Dyer. They both ran us ragged whenever they played us (Keegan haired Giles skipping past Burridge for the cup winner for Swansea at Cardiff) but were both no better than Paul 'Cheesy' Mortimer when they came to us.

Great game on tonight! Forest v Southampton League Cup Final, March 1979 at Wembley :eek:

The pitch was a mess, swept up snow on the sidelines, names from the past making me feel so old :(

Great game though which Forest won 3-2 after being 1-0 down.

Intersting to see how much Cloughie looked like Nigel Clough does now :D

Chocky 10-08-2009 12:15 PM

Why did they put that on again? It was on a few months ago during the corresponding weekend when it was played in March 30 years ago.

Billy Rhino 14-05-2012 11:26 PM

I've watched this a couple of times recently and both times Luton were playing with this striker called Trevor Aylott, who looked quite a handy player. I do worry sometimes about the affects of alcohol on the brain.
