    Tommy Lawton recalls his first goal for us on his debut in an FA Cup replay at Spurs in February 1937:

    Fantastic achievement by TG & Bangor. Would love to have seen him given a managerial go at Goodison.

    Is that the FA Cup match in January 1938, Joey? Any caption with it? The white-topped socks rule out a post-WWII match. Cracking photo, whichever one of the three 1938 games between the two sides.

    Looks like a member of Tony Soprano's crew - yet one of the cleanest centre-halves to grace the game.

    Very apt. We played like Charles Hawtrey in that competition.

    Off topic, but does anyone know why the two visits to Hitler's Germany in four years? Was the Foreign Office, in furtherance of appeasement, using football clubs for this end? And if so, who within our club's hierarchy was the point of contact with the FO?

    A text-book example of how to dismantle a great side, replace quality with mediocrity, and run a tight-ship - to, eventually, the second division. We've repeated this formula a few times since the mid-40s, only escaping the relegation bit by the skin of our teeth.

    So many who saw TG in his pomp said exactly the same. Cerebral player in an age more noted for the rugged simplicity of its centre-halves. What a waste of sheer class.

    Strewth - I inadvertently managed to post, after about a dozen failures, a Gif of one of the worst decisions of the 70s. As you can see above, Brum, at 3-3, had a perfectly good goal disallowed at Anfield, presumably for possession of blue shirts. Apologies for the confusion. Back to...

    October '67, by the look of it (Ray Wilson just visible), one of a succession of one-alls at the Bridge in the period.

    After brief exposure to what appears to be it, I'm with Joey's suggested use. Jesus. The Bleach Boys, ladies & gents... I'll stick with The Kinks & The Small Faces, thank you very much (for the Aintree Iron...)
