Nice story Ivy. As you say, a fantastic partnership with John Richards and a great servant to the club. A pity about his association with the Bhattis but he wont be forgotten in a hurry.

Saw him play a few times and he was one of those players who could get you out of your seat, always gave his best and physically tormented opposition defenders.

Nice article Ivy. The bit about being carried around Molineux as a nipper by the Doog reminded me of the scenes after he scored in the legendary 5-1 win over Arsenal in 1971. Here at about 18 mins in.

The clip also has a neat little interview with the Doog at the end.

What a great memory for us all Risca, form the days of huge sideburns muddy pitches, defenders being allowed to pass back to their goallie, only one substitute per team, teams getting used to the newly introduced offside rules, and the efficient and and superbly extrovert referee Roger Kirkpatrick. A great performance by one of our best ever teams in my view.

Very much my era as a young fan, Chesh. Pretty much my favourite team, with all the names matching my subbuteo squad :-)

It still boggles the mind a bit how the fans were so close and integrated, especially the kids.

Great stuff about the pitches, sideburns and Roger Kirkpatrick!
