Elwiss every week ITV have been running the whole Big Match programme (complete with London Weekend intro which just had to be followed by the Big Match theme :D ) from the corresponding weekend 30 years ago 78/79 season. So watch out for our promotion run in in a few weeks with the Notts County and Orient games. :)

Re the Chelsea v Liverpool game, Ray Wilkins being interviewed with massive loads of hair lol! And Ron Harris still kicking players up the arse even in his late playing days.

yeah I saw that , Peter Borota, David Stride, Harry Hutton, Chopper Harris was just a thug in reality, although they played quite well to draw with Liverpool, Walker and Butch Wilkins were class, Langley was shite which wasn't really a surprise, TBM was far superior to MOTD in every way, I used to watch on Sunday lunchtimes and us kids would go for a huge kick about after sometimes 15/a side

I have known a woman out here in Spain for a long time, called Dawn, she owns a nice restaurant, a Palace 'follower' who grew up 30 years ago in Pollards Hill.

Maybe you've done her. :D

Both of sadness and joy. Sadness that you could see the man beginning to lose it, and joy that he still had that sparkle, and said such nice things about his time at Palace.

Now that is what I call a coat!

I just have ,such great memories .Reminds me of what a great player PT was,and Mal as a coach and a show man.I Remember him being interviewed on one of the sport shows at the time,late on in Grandstand after our win at Walton & Hersham.He was asked about the fedora and said it was a Cup hat ,how nearly right he was.Also and I may be wrong but I think Johhny Byrne may have played for England when we were Div 111.

Looking at the coat I wonder where Mal parked his Sopwith Camel?

jookbeard 12-03-2009 12:46 PM

on soon at 12, we've got Spurs with Ardiles and Wolves, highlight of the daytime TV

gold76 12-03-2009 02:49 PM

Lacy & Jones were playing for Tottenham, Peter Taylor came off the bench.
Sir Stevie was playing for United, or should I say wankers!

Can you give me a nudge when we get to those weeks please? My DVD from James stopped working about a year ago, so it'd be great if I could record it and have it again.

People were dissapointed in Taylor as a manager purely because he was such an exciting player, but a very negative manager.
