  1. Cheap shot by BBC , let them stick to leeds " with a small l "
  2. One thing is for sure the next time I see the Owls I feel it will be a completely different team /management set up whether that includes Gary Monk only DC knows.
  3. Correct SP, certainly don't happen these days. Swanny never got a goal for us, but stopped his share.
  4. That day for West Ham, Noel Dwyer was stand in goalkeeper for Scotland international Laurie Leslie. Owls scorers were Fantham 2, Finney, 2 Wilkinson, Craig , Ellis. The result as SP says knocked West Ham off top spot into third while the Owls moved up to second behind Spurs. Good times.
  5. The players which I selected I had seen them play many times and imo worthy of a place in the line up. There is no doubt if I had seen Dooley, Hagan and Jefferies they would have been considered for selection. Not easy being a manager is it.
  6. My team would look like this having all represented their country but not for our local clubs at the time. In a 2-3-5 formation Ron Springett Mel Sterland Graham Shaw Des Walker Peter Swan Emlyn Hughes John Sheridan Tony Currie Jimmy Johnstone David Hirst Chris Waddle
  7. Ron Springett signed in March 1958 , my first game was 7 th April and i am certain Mike Pinner played in goal losing 2-1 against Burnley . so it would have been one of Ron,s first games versus the blades.
  8. Hi Runningman , i can remember the score going up on the leppings lane scoreboard when Billy Russell got the hattrick, and all the talk about the blades playing in Blackpool colours.. Y ou really jogged my memory there.
  9. I can relate to a few of them good times.
  10. I looked at that myself Padders , only time i remember playing more that twice in a cuptie is against the Arsenal
  11. I think the game you are thinking of is in 1988 drew 1-1 at Goodison Park and lost the replay 0-5 someone called Lineker scored four, still don,t like him.
  12. Keep those memories coming red or blue we all have a football story to tell. Best game, best/favourite player who has played for you , best player you have seen, biggest crowd you been in, first derby game you saw. Get those memories out here and let us all enjoy the moment. I could fill the hard drive if i got going.
  13. I remember it very well. That morning every paper was tipping a Man U v Chelsea Final, they got it wrong. IF memory serves me well the other semi was played at Burnden Park. State of the pitch would be questionable today.
  14. Sorry Padders, searched Pathe News and You tube and nothing relevant. Take a look at this for old times.
  15. Just for you Runningman. I wasn,t refering to the team that played Man U .Kieth Ellis hatrick, Finney 2 and Fantham 2 that night as you know.
