    Glad to see I was wrong and the American fans do follow the thread. My apologies.

    My gosh those take me back. All of those ads are far superior to what passes for programmes on tv now. I like the way they didn't bother writing any new tunes either, just recycled their hits... smart lads ;)

    Dissapointing how many there are not wearing the previously mandatory flat cap. Wartime rationing kicking in I suppose...

    Not remember exactly, but I've seen footage. I heard he used to pull the crossbar down when free kicks were going just over.

    I never watched him at the scum.

    I remember him taking them crosses down with one hand. Totally unique.
    I just looked on youtube but couldn't find anything.

    Green goalkeeping shirts, love them and my association to them is Jennings. I know all keepers wore them then, it's just he was our green shirted man.

    I do, before I graduated to the shelf I used to stand behind the goal we were kicking at, and change at half time, maybe 11/12. I saw him pull down a few crosses one handed standing behind Paxton. Can't remember him doing it at Park Lane though. Saw him make some amazing saves too.
    Unfortunately I never saw him play for long maybe a season worth of games because along with Neil and young he went to Woolwich. (I also think Daines played quite a few games too that season.)
    The next year was when I started going away too, and got right into it

    Agreed and the home nation international goalkeepers should wear yellow

    How did we ever concede a goal with him between the sticks during the '70s?

    Presumably most of them were at home. Preparing their hard working menfolk a delicious meal for when they staggered in from the pub (as is only right and proper). After a defeat of course, most sensible women took themselves off to their mother's for the rest of the weekend.

    Women and football simply don't mix - as I'm sure you'll agree.
