  1. Michael Oliver needs renaming Michael Oviller
  2. Don't think anyone mentioned 2-6 Birmingham yet. Kenny Burns and co destroyed us on an ice rink. December 1976.
  3. Just read the whole of this thread thinking 'no Kember or Frank Large?' and Yorksfox beat me to it ?
  4. Joe Mercer What a lovely man! Included Wortho and Weller for England. Said Weller played like a Brazilian. Then along came Revie!
  5. Detailed my first City game a few minutes ago, but first game anywhere was like yours also at City Ground: Forest v Sheffield Wednesday, 02 March 1963. Wednesday won 3-0 I'm pleased to say. Went with my Wednesday supporting friend. I think the infamous Peter Swan and Bronco Layne played. (Later convicted in betting and match fixing scandal and sent to prison.)

(Dad was from Thurmaston and had been sent to Notts as a Bevin Boy during the war so it was natural to follow LCFC rather than Forest like most others in my class at school.) Mike Stringfellow had come from same mining town as me - and I had his hymn book one year at Grammar school.You had to list your name on the inside cover and kept the book for the year. Dad parked the Ford Pop on Filbert Street and we headed for the nearest turnstiles and I seem to remember queuing for about an hour and a half or more before they opened and ending up standing at Filbert Street end with all the Spurs supporters! Nice one dad! You could do that in those days of course. Stood more or less behind the goal and couldn't believe my hero Gordon Banks was just yards away. Remember Jimmy Greaves scoring just in front of us, and the look of delight on his face. What an array of talent for my first experience of Filbo. Happy memories!
