    Poor old Fergie was shafted by Gould in the end.

    He scored while on loan against Brum and Norwich and was promised a contract if we stayed up. Gould renaged on it and sent him back to the club he relegated.

    Just a legend and no many remember he was a home grown product.

    Him and Wallace devastating partnership in the 70's.

    As a boy growing up in Coventry he was my hero and I was gutted when he left. Always pretended to be him in the playground!

    I thought he was a Geordie? I remember as a kid getting his autograph in Sainsburys

    My hero as well.
    Don't remember the Goulding thing though that is quite upsetting.

    I don't think he ever played for Brum again either.

    I remember the season after he left we played Everton in the league cup.
    He hardly touched the ball but scored the winner near the end.
    Cue his finger to the west end ! We had been giving him a hard time though !

    I was surprised that he was only 29 at that time, thought he was older than that. Presumably Regis was signed instead of keeping Ferguson

    That kit looks more gorgeous every time I see it.
