  1. Makes me wonder why it took until 2018 to gave Harry an OBE.
  2. Yes I recall that programme (wish I still had it). Those days Man Utd used to print both team line ups for home games on the front page with a drawing of a man in a suit and trilby shaking hands with a player above the names. As you stated. the United line up was left blank as they didn't know who would be starting. The FA. gave them special permission to play two players signed only a few hours before even tho' it was after transfer deadline -no windows then, just a couple of days - I think they were Stan Crowther (Aston Villa) and Ernie Taylor (Blackpool). Makes me wonder how it took till 2018 to give Harry an OBE.
  3. I thought that name was one of the Great Train robbers until I read it properly ,thank you Padders
  4. Man Utd's goalie that night was a lad who was third choice (name I forgot), I think David Gaskell was reserve but he too perhaps injured. I recall Harry Catterick wrting a letter -it was in the Star- to the young goalie to cheer him up. Also: is Bobby Charlton the last one living from the players that survived the crash ?
  5. Wasn't there a company at Handsworth that produced a similar thing ?
  6. Good article and I have a feeling your last sentence may be prophetic. To sum up the Owls over the last few seasons is that 'Every silver lining has a cloud'.
  7. If this week is a winter break for Premier League clubs, how come there are four PL games this weekend ?
  8. Where were the labs and the cricket field situated ?
  9. Yes, Geoff Stringfellow worked. At ESC Brightside after leaving Burngreave school, his dad Jim worked there also.
  10. Talking about attendances and a bit away from Sheffield, I read (on BBC website) that the attendance at the West Ham-Brighton game on Saturday was over 59,000 ! Can that be right for two teams swirling around the relegation drain ?
  11. In the 1960s there was a bus that ran down Charles Street perhaps en-route to the Midland station. Would that have been the No:60 re routed? If so, how did it get to Charles Street from Glossop Road?
  12. Also, I think it was once illegal to wash a car in the street on a Sunday, wonder if that still applies.
  13. Perhaps a better idea would be, let the banks run the railway and the railway run the banks but which would fail first ?
  14. Yes Padders, the way results are going, the Lions to win two nowt with the goals coming in the 87th and 94th minutes.
  15. I was reading on another site that it was illegal in Sheffield to sell greeting cards -from newsagents etc- on Sundays in the 1950s/60s, anyone heard of that ?
  16. The last time the Owls played Man City in a cup competition was at the Etihad, don't want to remind myself of the score that night.
  17. I went to school (All Saints) with the younger Duffield sister, Janice, their mother was the cashier at the Coliseum pictures on Spital Hill.
  18. What was the bus route that came down Glossop Road via Division Street and the terminus was in Barkers Pool, turned around the Goodwin fountain and went back again (to where) ?
  19. How were the trains vandalized, spray paint (graffiti) or mechanically ?
  20. Were British Telecom In Sheffield in 1962, rather than the GPO (phones etc) ?
  21. After today's performance Jim, the new manager may be coming sooner than we think and that appointment (of whoever) is not going to change things at OT very quickly. Just curious, where in Sheffield is Maguire from, as in lived when a school kid ?
