MLS

Was watching this quite interesting piece on UK attitudes to MLS, and was surprised when a Darlo fan was interviewed at 8.45.

Re: Best ever Darlo players (Northern Echo)

The problem with these things is that although it's all time eleven and manager the vast majority of the votes will be for recent people. Only a small proportion of the current support saw anyone before the 90s. Naturally they will vote for people they know.

Mr Tibbs & TFDM

Thanks for the help guys. I should have said that I'm using IE11. I was rather hoping to get it working in that. as I don't want to clutter my system with multiple browsers. Shockwave Flash Object is enabled in add-ons and ActiveX filtering is off.

Good to see the book has finally appeared. The picture on the front cover representing 1966 is of John Peverell. However they played in plain white shirts in 65/66. The hoops sported by Pev are from a later season.

I recognised Thommo first, then Dowson, and then it became clear -- this is the Darlo team. It could become a bit of a collectors issue I feel, especially with the ladies! Turn...

Leicester City - Played them at home in the second round of the League Cup, 4/9/68. We lost 2-1. The Despatch had a photo of Lance Robson blasting the ball past Peter Shilton. He was well off-side but the photo looked so good the Despatch used it for ages afterwards. I can't remember the scorers but...

Re: Darlo programme sale

Modern programmes don't sell, except for specials such as rare friendlies. Just look at how many go unsold on Ebay. You have to go back to the 50s before people are prepared to part with their money.
