  1. Is it John Dempsey who scored in the Cup Winners Cup replay in 1971? Although born in England he qualified to play for the Republic of Ireland through his parents.
  2. Your kitchen cabinet is a bit like mine. Except that mine is filled with pint glasses from beer festivals and mugs brought from military museums and shows. And yet, I still keep buying them.
  3. I'm sure that this picture has been posted before but certainly no harm in posting again.
  4. It's Colin Pates after scoring in the 4-3 win over Everton at Goodison in December 1984. Gordon Davies scored a hat-trick.
  5. It's the UEFA Super Cup which we won in 1998.
  6. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48533905 Esperance have been ordered to return the African Champions League trophy and to replay the second leg of the final. The Tunisian side led in Saturday's second leg but Moroccan opponents Wydad Casablanca left the pitch after an equaliser they scored was disallowed. Wydad wanted the video assistant referee to check if the goal should stand but the system was not working. The Confederation of African Football (Caf) said the second leg will be replayed at a neutral venue. The 1-1 draw from the first leg stands. The replay will be after the Africa Cup of Nations, which ends on 19 July. Caf said Esperance players must return their winners' medals as well as the trophy. Will this set a precedent?
  7. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48534031 Some decisions that go to the video assistant referee are to be shown on big screens in Premier League grounds. Graphics will explain any VAR-related delay to a match, and any overturned decision, from next season. Any video clip which helps explain an overturned decision will be broadcast, and they could potentially be viewed via an app on mobile phones. Messages on scoreboards and PA announcements will be made at grounds which do not have giant screens. VAR checks will be for "clear and obvious errors" relating to four match-changing situations: goals, mistaken identity, red cards and incidents in the penalty area. It debuts in the Premier League next season, having been used at the 2018 World Cup, in this season's Champions League knockout stages and in selected FA Cup and Carabao Cup ties. For clubs that do not have giant screens in their stadium, VAR communications will be made via a combination of PA announcements and messages on scoreboards. "If the VAR believes there is a definitive video clip which helps explain an overturned decision to fans, it will be broadcast on giant screens," the Premier League said in a statement The Premier League says it is also looking at ways for supporters to view the clips on handheld devices via an app. Meanwhile, the Premier League and seven leading Spanish sides have reiterated their opposition to the proposal to a radical restructure of European club football. Championed by Juventus president Andrea Agnelli, the idea is to replace Uefa's current club competitions with a three-tier structure that incorporates promotion and relegation - a move that would limit the number of Champions League slots available to new entrants via domestic competition. This would also involve increasing the number of games that Champions League teams play against each other by moving to four groups of eight - which many domestic leagues believe could only be achieved by playing European games at weekends.
