Going off at a slight tangent, this list is interesting.

Suggests that we had our first Black player in 1901, Blose... not until 1982.

Is that right?

That had me thinking that it was wrong, surely Howard Gale played for the Noses in 1980/81 but I was wrong...again!  He signed for them in 1983. As a slight aside, I went on to read a bit about him and my estimation of him went up a few notches when I read that in 2016 he turned down an MBE for the work he was doing for the Show Racism The Red Card organisation.  He was a nasty shit as a player

I immediately thought that this was wrong as I was sure Howard Gale played for the Noses in 1980/81.  Turned out I was wrong...again!  He was with them in 1983/84.

A a slight aside; reading about him my estimation of him went up a few notches.  In 2016 he turned down an MBE for the work he was doing for the Give Racism The Red Card organisation.

As a player he was a nasty individual and not very good but my opinion of him is now slightly less tainted.

Older posters will probably have heard of the Doncaster player.

Also, I had no idea that the Port Vale player played for them. Always struggled against German right wingers, as I recall.

Is there a chance we played West Ham in a pre season friendly? I remember the Leeds one and Eintracht Frankfurt but then my memory fades.

He was a glory hunting Man Utd fan before so maybe he'll switch to us now. Not that I'm getting carried away with one win of course.
