    Jimmy Armfield.

    After beating Blackburn away 3-0 in consecutive seasons 1971-72 & 72-73 he said “next season we’ll just send our shirts”. RIP Jimmy, my first Wanderers manager too.

    Found This On Facebook

    Older brother reckons it must be 1970 - Magees Ales were bought out by Greenall Whitley that year, although the ad may have stayed up for a while after, but probably narrows it down to 70-71 season. That said he reckons it's Siddall in goal, and he didn't join until 1972!

    Another Wanderer Gone

    RIP Dave, a face I knew well from away trips across the country, Pompey and Southampton being two that immediately spring to mind. At Southampton he was chasing my mate CS around the pub for previous misdemeanours! While you didn't want to get on the wrong side of him he was a proper old school character, and a Wanderer through and through. Sad day.

    Breaking Into Bars

    My late brother and another poster on here (no names M!) spent the night before the Oxford away game in 1975 inside the Manor Ground, having arrived before the end of their home game on Good Friday. They hitched up from a noon Kick-Off at Fulham that day, arrived in Oxford late afternoon and nipped in 'early' for the next match on Easter Saturday as the exit gates opened, bedding down in the main stand. Two days, two defeats, but he dined out on that tale for years! Didn't confess to pinching any beer, but knowing Martin ale would have been involved at some point.

    Rembrandt Rip

    Sorry not to have said hello, there were 4 of us on the second back row in the church with scarves, looking like extras from the blues brothers. Thanks for being there, he really would have appreciated it.

    Rembrandt Rip

    Sorry you couldn't make it Mounts. He got a good send off, WanderersWays got a mention at the church, Victor Meldrew was at the crem (nice to meet you M), and the reason for Rembrandt's username was finally outed (clue there, although I seem to recall it might have been questioned previously on here). He was a good bloke, and a Wanderer through and through. I will raise a glass or two later, goodnight Bernard.

    Anyone from here would be welcome at both or either to give him the send off he deserves.
