Re: Come on England.

Mainly our own nerves and 52 years of barren hopes Leon. A lot of people don't understand that our best ever team was the 1970 lads who lost to West Germany when Banksy couldn't play and Alf subbed Bobby Charlton at half time. That was such a good team and the only one Brazil were genuinely worried...

Re: Name the players ?

It's the above 13 plus Sprake, Cocker and then Jordan in all probability, he'd been here since 70 whereas I'm not sure Frank had even arrived yet plus he would have been 17 The only other possibility is Nigel Davey is in the somewhere. Reserve left back who'd been at Leeds a while and was cover aft...

So that rules out Terry Cooper as he broke his leg in April 1972
There’s 14 players plus Revie and Cocker . Sprake certainly travelled down as part of the squad for the cup final so I think it’s probably him bending down .

Re: Name the players ?

Great photos . I did a bit of research into the first picture and apparently it was taken in Sunny Hill Park , Hendon , on 5th May 1972 , the day before the cup final .

Phil Hay is reporting that there will be a rethink based on the feedback today . Doesn’t sound like it’s going ahead in its current guise .

Re: The things you detest about Christmas

As a retired retailer , my two pet hates were being the last person out of the shop on Xmas Eve ( anything between 8 and 9pm ) . Or being key holder over Xmas . I’ve spent many an Xmas Day in store sorting out alarm problems , freezers and fridges breaking down etc .

Grew up watching Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads . Loved it . Funny and occasionally very moving . Read on the news that James Bolam and Rodney Bewes fell out 40 years ago and haven’t spoken since . How sad .
