Two points for a win, one for a draw and a point for each goal scored
You've aged well Roxy.
Point per goal scored, yes.
10th June. My grandad got married that day and the whole tangerine mad family were stuck in the River Wyre Hotel when history was being made . When we asked a waiter the result we thought he was having us on, so me, aunt and cousin left the reception to the get The Green. Lo and behold, it really was 10 nil.Aah, the Lanerossi days. Think that was 72.
Suddick goal wasn't in that match. It was in the 3-3 draw with Verona.Three memories of that tournament.
1. Suddick's wonder goal, in the 10-0 Lanerossi game, sadly not recorded for posterity.
2. Being both overjoyed at the final being televised live from Italy by the BBC, a big deal in those days, and infuriated when they went straight back to the Saturday night schedule after 90 minutes and didn't show the all important extra time.
3. The civic reception outside the town hall on the following Monday after the final with hundreds of supporters in attendance many of whom, including me, adjourned to Jenks's Bar ( Rumours) afterwards.
No worries, it was such a long time ago and it's natural to think it could have been in that game because it was such a high scoring game and gets recalled on here more than the Verona game in which he did score it.Thanks for that...I did wonder when typing and should have checked it out first.
Can't help with that. Yep, recall it being it being talked about but can't recall any details of against who or when. Purely a guess but I'd doubt he'd do that in something like a league game so the Anglo Italian is a reasonable shout.Getting on a bit now, but seem to remember the King taking a rest by sitting on the ball during one game. Was it in the Anglo-Italian, or a league game?
I'm late to this, but I've explained it in my new book. Basically it was for goals scored and offside only in the area. Rules changed for the next two seasons too. Craziest competition ever invented.
