"It involves matters much greater than drafting the new rules...the original and existing games have their own powerful appeal to their players and public and have the sentiments which history inspires"  - Harold 'Jersey' Flegg 1933

"Just as we had been Cathars, we were treizistes, men apart."  - Jean Roque, Calendrier-revue du Racing-Club Albigeois, 1958-1959

I really don't like it when someone starts a topic with an ex players name and no context. Especially when said ex player is nearly 90 years old.

It must have crossed the mind of a few of us, I think.

I’ve heard this recording before but still interesting listening.  Signed on for free a promise of £8 a win £5 a loss and the signing was for life!  

Also, on signing guaranteed a 1st team game and he was in the 1st team for the next 15 years. Never dropped.

They are replaying the interview at HT on Radio 5 Sports Extra right now.


"Men will be proud to say 'I am a European'. We hope to see a day when men of every country will think as much of being a European as of being from their native land." (Winston Churchill)

Yes I too was worried 

Me too. Met Johnny Whiteley on Boxing Day last year in The Legends Hospitality Lounge at the M’bro v Sheffield Wed Football game. What a lovely man.
