The idea that the handball was payback for the ‘career ending tackle on Shane Long’ is interesting considering Shane Long was, in the end, out for just 3 weeks!

Anyone with a brain thought that we were good value for a 2-1 win and admitted that they got lucky.

Forgive me if i am wrong but i am more or less certain the butchers of Sandwell more or less ended the career of John Woodward .They crippled him in a match at the Hawthorns and he was never the same again

41 years ago today, Ally Brown the filthy stripey c*** ended Alex Cropley’s career.

I remember a chilling quiet descended on the Holte End when it happened.

I think one of Alex Cropleys family members has posted on here in the past, can’t remember if it was his son or not
i can also remember Andy Grays son coming in for a short while

don’t know if any other family members of players have been openly on apart from our friend Frank Moss of course

Cropley was a lovely player, another player we sadly lost to injury around this time was Keith Leonard, one of my all time favourites.

You're right John, the sons of both players you mentioned have posted on here.  I remember Sammy Morgan's son posted on here too, I think in connection as to the whereabouts of Sammy, I could be wrong about the reason of course.
