Poor Les Sealey - fine kit n ' team
Liking the white Citroen in the background. My Dad had one of those. Gear lever in the steering column. Weird !
What a fantastic kit that was.
Is it the light or has Oakey got a dodgy tash?
Utterly brilliant squad.
Imagine what that entire Admiral kit would fetch on ebay.
Best kit we ever had. Also, when I passed my test in 85 I bought a Citroen and had them for years. There used to be a bloke near Harbury on a farm who used to buy and sell them. Lovely cars back then.
Certainly a lot more than our current squad. Maybe someone should ask Tim tonight to look in any old out of the way cupboards at Ryton, might be some kit stashed in there. Would certainly boost our income.
Which magazine is that photo taken from? Back row, middle row and front row are written in foreign.
I have met 2 of that squad in person, Ray Gooding scouted a young lad from our team, he certainly doesn't have the long flowing locks of hair now nice guy (didn't know he was from the North East) John Beck - May 92 in Ibiza was manager of cambridge at the time who knocked us out that FA cup that year - what an ignorant to$$er I was sober and so was he, so glad his management career ended
I always thought Jim Holton and Mick Ferguson were big, but Garry Thompson looks huge in that pic, gotta be 6'4" just never thought he was that tall?
p.s. I'm going for 6,4" due to Big Jim Holton being 6'2" eyes of blue!
had forgotten about Keith Osgood. Am i right in thinking we paid Spurs a lot of money for him. Or is my memory failing like everything else?
where's Steve Hunt?
See Milnes tracky top.
A pre cursor for Le coq sportif kits, late nineties. B-)
Is that in Danish?
google says yes
Next seasons kit should be based on that one , absolute fucking classic !!!
The current players aren't worthy of wearing it.
I had that same picture on my bedroom wall. Not sure where the foreign writing came from, but it was the centre page from the Telegraph special that used to come out every summer. I used to look forward to that each year in the same way as I'd be standing outside the newsagent waiting for the pink to arrive on a Saturday.
The weird thing is that I was only 7 and yet even now I could name all of those without the narrative underneath, but if you put this season's in front of me, I'd struggle.
Yep, the summer pull out in the CET and the league ladders in shoot made my summers back in the 70's.
He was taking the photo mate .
Shoot ladders, forgot about them - quality.
Yes , definitely . used to look forward to that paper coming out in the summer time . meant the season was on it's way . and , waiting for the pink on Saturday evenings [ If we won ]
Fantastic team and kit. Oh to have the likes of Hutch, Wallace, Ferguson now.
Hasn't he heard of a selfie stick
The best time to be a City fan in my 45 years was 73 Stein and Hutch to 79 Fergie, Wallace, Yorath, Hunt et al.
Bobby McDonald seems to be wearing an impish "I just did a silent and deadly one" grin, if you look closely. It hasn't hit Gordon Milne's nose yet, clearly.
Great team though.
I could have written exactly this myself (apart from being a bit older!). Definitely my era and could name all that team with ease. Would cycle from Leamington to the training ground during the school holidays and stand on the touch lines watching them train, never any problem. Ron Wylie would sometimes let my mate and I go into the main building and get any autographs we wanted. Always remember what a nice bloke he was. Jim Holton too would always chat and crack a joke.
