Brady and Macari.
9-0 Spurs v Bristol rovers

This is Joe Payne (left) who scored 10 in that game:

Edit: already posted this one! Fuck it, I blame the bullies above
Kenny Jacket all agog as lust driven Hornets get in on with Andy Gray.
Chelsea v Oldham 1980. A view of The Shed taken from the executive "benches", available by walking to the fence and paying 50p.
Despite a difficult first season, Marouane Fellaini is now feeling very much at home at Old Trafford;
1979 Roughwood Shops, Kirkby.
Kitty Thorne - 100 years old and still watching the Gas
The boy band that never was;
maybe not the best pic ever, but 2 legends ....
You get what you pay for in Primark Pep
Dave Sexton signs Mickey "fake cash, stabbed in the buttocks, jailed" Thomas, for Man U, 1978
Workington Reds v Barrow at Borough Park, pre-season 2014. Formerly a fierce football league derby, both teams dropped out of the league via failing re-election in the 1970s. Barrow now have a moneyed American backer and are looking to come back from the Conference. Workington are a bit further down the foodchain in the Northern Premier League.
Incidentally, Workington's old league place seems to have a shelf life of c. 28 years, and is a bit jinxed.
wtf am I on about? Workington replaced the long-defunct New Brighton in 1951 ("The Rakers" joined Div 3 North in 1923 and failed re-election in 1951).
Workington suffered the same fate in 1977, and were replaced by the old Wimbledon FC.
Wimbledon FC of course were disgracefully franchised and officially "became" MK Dons in 2004.
That means, that is this pattern keeps up, MK Dons will vanish out of the league sometime in 2031-32, hopefully as painfully and unpleasantly as possible.
It would be nice if a re-formed New Brighton or Workington replaced them!
Southport (yellow) v Barrow (dark blue) at Haig Avenue, in the old fourth division; mid-late 1960s
Its odd to see the terrace at Haig Avenue (Merseyrail Community Stadium) with a crowd, never mind a roof.
Some great photos from today's game
I know I'm stretching it with this collage but I love it. I don't recognise Bilic and Ranieri looks like he should be in an Alain Delon film:
I remember Martinez, Koeman, Sparky and Bilic as players, although that photo looks to be from the Yugoslavia days before he came here. Howe and Neil have hardly changed, but then they're only mid-30s. As for Schteve, his head looks too small for his body.
