Sounds like a similar story to Wrexham that Phil.

When I was in the RAF one of my good mates and next door neighbour was a County fan.He'd go mental if you called them Nottingham County...

Another good Gordon Banks story regarding his one and only appearance in the League of Ireland :

In the photo at the base of the article, does anyone know who is the guy in the middle separating Giles and Dunphy ?

Not sure but i remember watching Dunphy playing for Millwall  a cultured footballer stood out in that club, Keith Weller also played for Millwall at this time.

I remember Keith Weller playing on the left wing for Chelsea in the 60's - speedy and useful he was too. Cannot remember what he looked like though. So no doubt you will have gathered I don't know who the fella in the middle is.
There is nothing wrong with striving to win, so long as you don't set the prize above the game. There can be no dishonour in defeat nor any conceit in victory. What matters above all is that the team plays in the right spirit, with skill, courage, fair play,no favour and the result accepted without bitterness. Sir Matt Busby CBE KCSG 1909-1994

He was the only player I can remember playing in white tights on a freezing day, when he was with Leicester. John Barnes, of course, played in black ones. Whatever happened to that habit..?

Thanks guys. Didn't have a clue who it was when I first viewed the photo but Ray Treacy is correct .

Giles, Dunphy and Treacy all played for Shamrock Rovers in the League of Ireland in the late 70's after their return from England. After his playing days were over Treacy went into the Travel business and Giles and Dunphy carved out a very long career as pundits on an Irish version of Match of the Day.

Just read this article in the Guardian this morning; hadn't heard the John Terry story before.


https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2019/mar/30/football-double-jeopardy-racism-cases-fernando-forestieri


It is coming up for seven years now since John Terry found himself in the dock of Westminster magistrates court on charges of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand and, though I could never say sitting through that week-long trial was a particularly fulfilling experience, there is one memory that offers some light relief amid all the other numbing details.

It goes back to the penultimate day, when Terry was being taken through some of the evidence related to his exchange of words with Ferdinand, then of QPR, and having to repeat some of it for the benefit of the court. Terry was obediently following the instructions, albeit not looking absolutely sure what purpose it served, until he was asked to let the court know the number of times he had been sent off throughout his Chelsea career.

“Can you say – please – four times?” asked his QC, George Carter-Stephenson. At which point Terry nodded again. “Please … please … please … please.” And even now, all these years on, I am still not absolutely sure he understood why the courtroom was filled with awkward laughter.

Ah ... Go to Bootle will ya . It meant shut up or fuck off.

One that me Nan Dixon always used .

I've always thought about it's origins. My Dah's side are South Enders and ended up in Childwall Valley. I do remember me Nan saying because Bootle is up in the North End and it's so far away hence the fuck off bit. I always thought it was about Bootle getting bombed to fuck during the war.

I reckon me Nan knows more than me though.

There's a thread for this stuff by the way.

Just catching up, here, Kes. I think that expression ....used frequently by my own Nan....comes from the fact that the main Catholic cemetery, the Ford Cemetery, was in Bootle. In effect, she was saying ‘drop dead’, or ‘go to hell’. That’s always been my take on it, anyway.

Brought a smile to me face, there, thinking about my aul Nan. God bless her, now buried in Ford cemetery herself.

My family were Southenders and had this little rhyme about Bootle;

"Bootle, were the bugs wear clogs
And the kids play tick with hatchets."

They could easily afford to sneer at the North End from the family mansion in Granby Street. :D

He was the only player I can remember playing in white tights on a freezing day, when he was with Leicester. John Barnes, of course, played in black ones. Whatever happened to that habit..?

He went to Leicester from Millwall. Millwall had a decent team for a while then including a decent CB called Barry Kitchener and a fans favourite slightly dodgy WB called Harry Cripps .

I have to confess I was touched by his family's tribute given at Tommy Smith's funeral, yesterday. As quoted in the Liverpool Echo:

“So I want you to hear this:

You may lose your football skills.

And live with metal knees and pills.

And forget the roar of the Kop, the thrills.

But you never lost my love.

You may lose your confidence

Your rugged looks and elegance.

Your power to think and eloquence.

But you’ll never lose my love.

You may lose your memory

And forget your own identity

And your room be full of mystery.

But you never lost my love.

You may have had to be spoon fed

Lying in a nursing bed.

Not understanding what I said

But you never lost my love.

You have felt all alone

Sitting in a nursing home

You always had and you never will, ever, lose my love.

Your family loved you, Tommy, a great deal.

The fans loved you a great deal.

The battle is over.

Rest in peace."

https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/tommy-smith-funeral-liverpool-legend-16180504


Tommy was as 'Liverpudlian' as they come. A great player, but one of us. He played judge, jury & executioner on the field, he couldn't abide cheats.  There's a video doing the rounds right now of him 'taking out' Allan Clarke of Leeds. Now, Allan was a great player, but could be a snide, he liked to leave his studs down the back of your leg. Tommy meted justice out to him & his ilk, no messing, and the crowd loved him all the more for it.

I don't know if Leo comes on to these pages any more, I haven't seen much of him since he got sick. I think he had his 'run ins' with Tommy, but I think they were both sides of the same coin, both proper Liverpudlians.

Anyway, back to the family's eulogy, it really touched me. Behind the fame was an ordinary lad who face the same struggles as the rest of us. But you were loved, Tommy, of that you can be sure. RIP

My family were Southenders and had this little rhyme about Bootle;

"Bootle, were the bugs wear clogs
And the kids play tick with hatchets."

They could easily afford to sneer at the North End from the family mansion in Granby Street. :D

"Brutal Bootle, where the bugs wear clogs" was ours.  We lived round the corner from the Phil.

Yes!

Just realised I missed off the Brutal.

I'm sure they had equally derogatory ditties about the South End.

The last few months have been a nightmare,
Massive Vertigo attacks that were diagnosed as Meneire's Disease which is nasty and permanent, however after eventually seeing a Neurology consultant and after some tests last monday I was told i dont have that disease i had a Virus which has similar symptoms but only last for 6-8 weeks and i am clear now.

Told me i could drive and get back to work and also stop taking the meds straight away.

Can't tell you how happy i am about getting my life back now.

Was it labyrinthitis?

Very nasty but does wear off. I picked up an ear virus in Italy a couple of years ago which was no fun but that cleared up after a month or two.

As you know I've been on early retirement for a couple of years.

My ideal job became available a couple of weeks ago so I applied.

Got an interview in two weeks...

Hi folks
I'm retiring in 3 weeks. Really looking forward to it.
Work is really interfering with my life, just pure stress. Lots of things lined up, at last time for them.
Keep well everyone.
