Very sad news.Worthy of it's own thread. Quite a few of us will remember him. RIP Mike.
Shirley it was Wednesday (on a Wednesday night too).They were 4th in Division One at the time, and a great scalp. Set us up for the third round trip to White Hart Lane in the 3rd Round. We led twice before eventually succumbing 3-6 (And I still reckon all three of Greaves goals were offside !). Spurs fans were very complimentary after the match too. Iirc they had beaten Crewe 9-0 in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup in the January.I will remember Mike as a no nonsense defender. I particularly remember his efforts containing Sheffield United at SJP in 1968 in the League Cup.
Didn’t John Corr score in this game? I was on the Big Bank that night, a terrific result for us.You're quite right Mr Ballz. Sheffield Wednesday it was, at a time when top teams were sending the same eleven to play for each match; none of this putting out a reserve side as is common today. I remember Wednesday goalkeeper Peter Springett having dreadful trouble dealing with crosses with the floodlights in his eyes! He moaned about the lights whichever team he played at SJP for.
