    Thought it deserved a thread

    Happy birthday Roy McFarland 70 today, before my time to see him play but I was desperate for him to do well after succeeding King Arthur, great ambassador for the club

    Great player. Great memories. One of which isn't all that flattering. He scored possibly the finest own goal I have ever seen. It was a night match. Opposition was Hull City. I think it was a League Cup tie. They attack towards the Ossie End. Their right winger, Wagstaffe, is bearing down on the right hand side of our box. Roy Mac in hot pursuit. He slides in for the tackle. Plays the ball perfectly with his usual impeccable timing. So damned impeccable that it screams into the top right hand corner. Keeper had no chance.

    Happy birthday Roy.

    I saw Roy make his debut away to Rotherham back in August 1967. We won 3-1 but all the fans could talk about after the game was this brilliant young centre half we'd just signed.

    Happy Birthday, Roy Mac.

    Just class..could head a pass better than some players did with their feet.
    Deceptively hard and a warrior who often played through injuries for the cause.
