One of my happiest away days was the fixture at Hillsborough where we came back from 2-0 down to win.

I'll settle for the same today.

I remember the South Yotkshire police escorting the buses. They were drrssed like a aparamilitary force. Sone of them were head to toe in black leather. Letting us into a pub milrs from anywhere. We had about two pints and then they came in aftet 15 mins and took glasses out of our hands and sheperded us back on to the buses. Deffinitely the bad old days. Great result though. It was Big Rons first gamr?? And the Leppings LANE end was re-opened that day

he made mistake and and shouldn't have said what he did. I hope that's what he is not remembered for,  as theres more to him than that.

It will be one of the things he will be remembered for - the fact it is still being discussed over a dozen years later means thus.

The momentum is with us, the home form has been solid, and more importantly they are really a struggling.  Another bad result could spell the end for Carlos.  3-0 Villa.  Kodja, Hourihane and Hutton.

Know what you mean (I think).

But Regis, Batson and Carlton Palmer are hardly wilting wallflower or Uncle Tom-types, and they all condemned the comments whilst speaking positively about his character.

Just because they had once played for him, they didn't need to do that if they thought he was a racist oaf.
