The History Board
« on: October 3, 2012, 10:08:54 PM »
This is the start of The History Board, a repository for all things LFC from 1892 to 1994. We've chosen a cut off point: The game against Norwich which was the Kop's last stand.

If you wish to add something to the board, please post it in the Main Forum where it will attract attention and get replies and mark it for the History Board or report it to the mods and we'll move it over if its worthwhile and appropriate.

We're starting this board off like the Opinion Board so that anyone can reply to existing threads, and as I said above, start threads elsewhere and they will be moved over if warranted.




In the meantime, we're trying to set up a system whereby arl arses who've still got their faculties can post into here (such as Vic's life story) and we're also hoping that the final addition to the new RAWK Writing Team is Wooltonian who will be the Curator of this board and RAWK Historian General. In the meantime enjoy and welcome. We want to get this board to be the place for the young to visit and the old to dwell.

Education, Reflection and Celebration. The History Board.

Tremendous!
Education starts here. A hundred years of glorious history even before this monster that is the premiership began. Eat yer heart out Abu Dhabi and Moscow - you can't manufacture this.

We have had great teams managers and players but also some right funny characters as well.

Got something fantastic to share with you all here. Mentioned this in the arl arse thread months back but couldn't get it up as I was defeated by the size of the files after I scanned and tried to upload onto here.
Got given a cracking report of the trip to the US in early 60's by a gooner mate of mine who's relative Kurt...(second name escapes me for now) was a big shot in the early days of USA footy and helped organise the trip.
It's an amazing read
Anyone able to help if I could email it over to them in PDF form and post it up here

Just seen this

It should be possible to save those pdf's as jpeg's. These can then be hosted say on photobucket etc and then img links back on here to show it all

Let me know if any help needed

Hey mods if you're reading, given that we've now gone 5 years since the opening of this board perhaps it's time to further the cutoff point a bit? Perhaps to the cup treble or to Istanbul? :)

My first memory in life is from 1993 and my first memory of a football match (Sweden vs Switzerland) is from 1995 so although the older days are indeed interesting for a lot of us younger ones it'd be fun to have the early 2000's covered in here!

Didn't know where else to post it but found it interesting and hadn't heard before. Mods, please move it if required.
This is basically an interview with Gordon Banks.  - http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/42268937

Relevant bit:
Quote
Banks was a Leicester City player when England won in 1966 - but the following year with Peter Shilton emerging, the club decided to sell their World Cup winner. Liverpool were rumoured to be interested but would not meet the 50,000 asking price. In the end he joined Stoke and remained there until he retired from professional football in 1973. Banks had lost the sight in his right eye after a car crash in October 1972.

When Leicester put me up for sale I saw Roger Hunt at an international match. He said: "Don't sign for anybody - Bill Shankly is coming for you."

I thought to myself "that'll do for me". Liverpool had been a top side for a number of years.

I sat and waited and the weeks went by and I thought they were supposed to be coming for me.

I thought I was worth 50,000. I'd been at Leicester for eight years and played in five cup finals - two League Cup finals, two FA Cup finals and a World Cup final.

Eventually the manager at Leicester came up to me and said Stoke are interested and would I like to speak to them.

I was about 28, I was at my peak and Leicester had put me up for sale. I honestly could not get away fast enough and play for a club that wanted me. So I signed for Stoke.
