    With all that fluffed up, curly hair in the top picture, Demps' looks out of place with his Max Wall cut.

    I saw Allan Harris play full back. No where near as hard as Ron but decent enough. Peter Sillett was a no nonsense centre back, big and strong with a hard shot while John was smaller but could definitely tackle. Decent enough manager afterwards. Ray was head and shoulders above Graham skillwise, probably the reason why Graham took some stick. He was more of a worker, defended quite well and played full back.

    Impossible for me to get to the Circle without jumping on a plane! I hear that the cafe retains it's character but the rest of the place has gone downhill, especially since the Arms was pulled down. And my old mate Ted is shutting up his fruit and veg. shop and retiring.

    You probably bumped into me and my brothers there. We lived in Peterborough Rd. A short walk across Poulters Park and we were at the NAAFI ground. The nicest player I met, out of all of 'em, was Dennis Brown

    Two years after the dog track was introduced. I can make out the white traps for the four bend and six bend starts and the tote board in the foreground. This picture could have been a summer dog meeting and not a football match, as I can't see any pitch marked out.
  6. As Bobby Madley is the ref, there's half a chance he won't notice!
  7. Burnley have been flying lately, probably because the chance of a Europa League place. Our come -from- behind win at Southampton and Spurs getting pissed upon by City just might give us the impetus to win this game. What we need is some badly needed pacy support for Hazard from midfield and on the flanks. I'd like to see Barkley start instead of Fabregas, Palmieri instead of Alonso and Zappacosta to continue at right wing back. He looked very rusty at Southampton and might have needed the game. Rudiger should return after being banished for one game for being lippy. We also need a change of attitude from Conte. Get back to your raving lunatic best, please guvnor!
  8. Like it! 12 players should do it. I wonder if the referee will notice?
  9. Their biggest problem is their central defence. They sold Van Dyke, who I don't rate that highly anyway, and replaced him with dross.

    With John Phillips leading the charge!
  11. We should have pissed up in this game primarily because this West Ham team is sh*t. They had a slower midfield than the one that Conte put out (a-fu***ng again just to make a point to the Board), which is saying something. I don't think Alonso has had so much space in a game this season, up against old man Zabaleta. Not that he did much with it. The game should have been done and dusted by half time but we wasted chance after chance and, of course, they get a bit of confidence because of it. Note to Conte...If you're still around in the summer, try and get someone who can cross a ball with venom, and that doesn't mean Ward - Prowse, the commentators favourite, who's the most overrated 'underrated' player on the planet.
  12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    That's where I'd like to see him play. He needs to take more responsibility on the pitch instead of just drifting around on the periphery. He's miles better than that.
  13. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    He was the star boy in the classroom. Now he's 22 years old and has got the skill, pace and physical attributes to be a star outside the classroom. He needs to take the game by the scruff of the neck and dominate. That comes with a strong mentality. I think he needs to toughen up in that respect.

    What a player he was. He arrived on the scene, from the youth ranks, when the squad was in decline and immediately stood out. He was 18 when McCreadie made him captain of the first team. Testimony of his class. Being equally adept with either foot, that enabled him the time and space to engineer moves. That was it with Ray, he always seemed to have so much time.

    Nothing spectacular mate. British Rail, South London Leagues, Government League and the Greek London League to name a few. It was quite easy to get a trial in those days. My old man wrote a letter or two to the club saying how great" I was, and wallop I was in! Ken Shellito was in charge that day but it seemed all eyes were on this kid from South Africa. He was definitely the class act that day. Nice lad to speak to as well.
