Seems plausible to me. Why wouldn't you want to go to places like Shrewsbury and Cambridge instead of being in the squad for European games?

In the squad today 

Not sure what the point in sending him out on loan again would be

It's bizarre the things you remember from seasons ago but can I fuck as like remember owt from 2 seasons ago

I could virtually give a match report on most home games in the 80s/early 90s, and plenty away, but I could hardly name a player from a given season since turn of century.  I can name players from eras, but definitely wouldn't be able to pin games or players names to a particular year or even within 2 or 3 years.  Just a blur of merged memories last 20 years.  81-82 clear as a whistle, who played, the best wins etc.

And Dusan Nikolic was class in 80-81, watched him from the Embankment, one of the reasons I enjoyed going despite us being bottom half of league following relegation.  (Then got my 1st S/T, moved to Burnden Paddock so that I could join in the atmosphere!).

I can remember that season as well, we were mainly crap but had some good wins, beat West Ham, beat Newcastle but iirc we only won 1 away and think it was Cambridge near very end of the season.

Good draw away at Blackburn to scupper their promotion hopes as well i remember.

Yes 4-0 v Newcastle.  WHU was 1-1, good game, they won the league by a mile, with Trevor Brooking etc.  6-1 v Cambridge was a highlight, hat-trick from Kidd.

Also drew 3-3 at Forest in FAC and lost replay 1-0 in front of nearly 23k, 3 times our normal crowd, and no reduced prices for any cup games in those days.

Wow! I’m just trying to work out if we did or didn’t concede many.
