    So he did, apologies.

      Managers then.
      1975 I think is the latest where we've lost both (Lyall and Stock).
      And I think the next year, 1976 is the earliest where both are still with us (McMenemy 82 and Docherty 91)

          From that thread, Bolton's Centre-Half was M Barrass. Which feels quite appropriate for today's news concerning them...

            1953: Four players out of 22 all reaching 88 is remarkable in itself. Maybe the health benefits of rationing in the North West?

              Correcting myself, both 1984 managers, Taylor and Kendall, are sadly no longer with us.

                Very excited that we are now in "Cup Final Week". I will be watching, as usual, at 2am, here in Sydney, as a neutral and hoping for goals. I think that would mean Watford would need to score first.

                  Welcome to OTF, SydneyToon1. I hope you stick around.

                    Thanks very much. I have actually been on here off and on for 9 years (since 2010 World Cup) but lost my log-in and password and had to re-register. I posted mainly during the World Cups (and enjoying wingco's hilarious England reports) and FA Cup Final time, and also my interview with Barry Davies.

                        Will there be a Taylor-Kendall tribute on Saturday (Kendall managed Man City in 1989-90)?

                            Turned over just in time for 'Abide With Me', should I know who that choir was singing it?

                              There were some Manchester City fans in the pub here in Harrow until half-four. It's almost as though they'd been to Wembley before...

                                Lots of shouts of Pently! Realised they all came from me...

                                  Andre Marriner's doing the VAR? May as well just switch the whole thing off then.

                                        Nice pic of TC with his son at Wembley on Facebook, by the way.

                                            Terrible goal to concede by Watford, giving it away in the middle of the park and then switching off twice and allowing Silva, then Sterling to win headers. Thought they'd rue their earlier chances.

                                              Man City deny Man Utd a chance to sack their manager in July.
