    back then 1...............the headlines

    Post by rjrules71 on Sun 01 Jan 2012, 5:33 pm

    My daughter bought us this magnificent present for Xmas which has all the DCFC headlines from 1912 onwards (see below).

    This night was the proudest moment of my supporting life. Tonking the then 'mighty, Real Madrid.

    Were you there?






    I have copied some below just to get you thinking.


    Gordon Cowans remember him?




    How about


    one for the old boys

    Just the Georgeous one for me. Jackie Stamps was before my time although I played dominoes with him on many an occasion in the Sump when he was still alive. The others were after my emigration.

    Wasn't a regular BBG-goer at the time, so missed out on that glorious night v Madrid.

    I remember being a fan of Cowans, particularly whilst at Villa/at his peak. Past his prime before he got here, obviously, but always rated him highly. Didn't he do a decent stint in Serie A too, at one stage?


    Great prezzie, RJ, but you're still left with them manky old slippers for another year!! :affraid:

    I was there for all the European games at the BBG, but the Real Madrid night was something special! There was a really special atmosphere which I don't think I've known anyother time! And what about that goal? Goal

    Even at 64 I was still not born when The Rams won the FA Cup but my dad (who died 22 years ago) was a personal friend of Peter Doherty. Together with my mother they went on Honeymoon to Wembley with tickets supplied by Peter Doherty. As soon as I could understand he oft retold the story of how his "best mate" scored a goal in the final. But his real hero (as of many of that time) was Jack Stamps. Apparently a "true" gentleman.

    What about that Benfica game where Colin Todd marked the then "best player in the world" Eusabio out of the game and went on to win 4-1. A truly remarkable and emotional event that has stayed well and truly in my mind.

    Now you've gone and done it, Sawley! That was a fantastic night as well! I was just a schoolkid then, and seeing such bigname stars from exotic, far-away places was absolutely magic! we didn't have the blanket TV coverage that we get now! And to have a team that could play these megastars off the pitch was awseome.

    But having gone on about the Real Madrid game,you mentioning Benfica has started all the others to seem just as good!

    What a period of my life, probably never to be repeated! Thank you Brian and the boys! Clapping Clapping Clapping Clapping Clapping Clapping Clapping Clapping Clapping Clapping Clapping Clapping

    3-0 Sawl..the Benfica game....and the best European night by far for me as that was the first time we played a real big name team....atmosphere was unreal that first half.

    My grandad always told me that despite going to all the home games he couldn't get a ticket for the final
    Thankfully he made it for the charity shield years later so can at least say he saw us at wembley
