Reckon his son is easily in the top 3 hardest screw looses weve ever had at the club.

Struggling to think of a madder one tbh.

Stig Tofting and Con Boutsianis have to be way out in front. Curcic worth a shout too, tbf.

On last day of the season against Boro in 2003 to stay up Tofting gave the team an impassioned rousing team talk to the dressing room, over the phone, from prison in Denmark

That Blackburn away game - two masterful late goals by Shearer. But Bolton were absolutely all over the home ends. When Scott Green scored our equaliser it was going off in little pockets all over the show. Blackburn hadn't played us at home for 12 or 13 years and were taken aback.

Chris Fairclough and John Sheridan supposedly tough geezers

At the recent stelios & hunt event Hunt mentioned a scrap involving Akin Bulent & one of our other players (Mendy)that went on for ages, can’t remember who the other player was but think Bulent was the victor, he’d be one of the toughest I’d think.

I wonder if Akin Bulent was harder than Bulent Akin

Made all the papers the trouble that day.

Remember working with a decorater from Darwen and we got on about that day.

He bowled in to town with his mates for his stag do. Not a pub was open and most had no windows left :D

Yeah thats right. Not sure where Kimrons 2-0 comes from haha....it was 0-0 at reebok the everton season.

The late points deffo Burnden, if not both.

We had...

Everton home -Rideout 85th ish

Qpr - Danny Dichio 90ish

Colin Cooper twice 

Amongst others.

Curcic picked things up for a bit. Beat boro away and then leeds away with black sunday in the middle.

20 years ago I could have recounted every pass from every game , old mans memory and all that . Plus the Colin Cooper thing turned by brain into mush from therein onwards in an attempt to burn the memories out of existance.

Said it before but Rioch and Todd weren't far off joint managers 

Had a football focus interview on VHS from around the time of the Liverpool FA cup games where they said as much 

So when Rioch left the board were looking for some sort of continuity though not sure they had to go with him just because he played with them both at derby as well

Got an interview on VHS where Colin Todd says it was his idea to bring Roy McFarland in as joint manager .

It had worked for Reading but our players couldnt get their heads round it ala one of SJMs podcasts.

Definitely Chic Charnley . 

Allegedly go turfed out of a boozer in jockoland and went back and carved it up with a chainsaw then ordered a pint as it was nearly last orders . 

That or Stig "Hells Angels" Tofting .

 

Andy Todd but our assistant manager (Phil Brown)  in hospital with a broken jaw , was sold to Charlton and did the same to Dean kiely and the 1st team coach a week later . Not a bad lad tho according to his dad.

Nails

piss over anything now 

When Gerry Taggert says Chris Fairclough was a God carved out of granite that nobody in the club wound up is good enough for me considering the players we had at the time.
