Sorry, but I've always found it impossible to look at this photo without laughing at Rodney Fern's hair style, Shilton's dubious tash - (which he should have donated to Malcolm Manley for the full Peter Wyngarde effect) and Steve Whitworth who looks a bit like Damien Lewis here.

At the risk of appearing to be a bit of a plastic I don't recognise the player at the left of the front row (in front of M stringfellow) - is that Bobby Kellard?

I would say so.

Remember a fan hurling loud abuse at Carlin all the way through a match. Willie clearly able to hear him, did not react at all. 

Carlin then scored and carried the ball back and threw it at the bloke in the crowd. Hilarious.Fans roared in delight. Probably get a yellow now, but I think even the ref laughed.

We were all much more human back then. Or at least allowed to be.

No...Manley, far right of the picture. Partridge is between Stringy and Fern. 

Yes, I knew. Probably haven't expressed myself very well. Remember Malcolm Manley well. Decent player who was very unlucky. RIP Malcolm.

Remember that 1970/71 season well, had some great away days, particularly last match of the season to Fratton Park on the Football Special. City went last seventeen games undefeated that year (10 wins / seven draws). Good all round team, although Ali Brown and his goal machine and John Farrington were my favourites. 

 

Fantastic times for a 19 year old football crazy fan. Matches were always a cheap day out with low cost train / coach fares and stocking up with cans of Sainsbury’s pale ale (guaranteed to make you sick) before you caught the coach outside the Secular Hall on Humberstone Gate.
