I have heard that health and safety is an issue when you visit sn srmy sssault course.  


Having Beck as a manager was a Health and Safety issue.

In the sub-category of "Most Entertaining Keeper in the World", I nominate Tony Sullivan.

So does Kevin Welsby rank as the worst goalkeeper in the world? I still have nightmares about the Cambridge game when we should have got a replay and he fumbled a header that my mum would have caught.

Probably not the worst in the world, but City have had some poor ones. When Alan Tinsley first became manager he signed a keeper caller Roger ("Stan") Atkinson, who was about six foot eight and appeared in a pair of shorts about ten sizes too small for him. More recently Danny McDonald tended to operate on a "good game/indifferent game" sequence. And whilst Keith Brindle will always be a City legend, son James?? Sad

Are you saying Mac that you didn't enjoy the football under Beck on the plastic ?

The football was dire but to give the man credit, in a way he turned them around and laid the foundations for Peters then Moyes.
The plastic football was awful

Firstly as regards keepers Wolfie, Glen and Gary Hudson stand out for me. Secondly regarding John Beck, he was nothing short of a disaster at PNE. Took PNE down in his first season, cost us the play off final in his second season with his team selection, forced out Tony Ellis because he was more popular than him, played God awful football on the plastic pitch, signed truly terrible players (Sale, Trebble etc). He did make two good decisions however. 1. Moving the home end into the Town End and bringing in Gary Peters. One day people will realise that John McGrath and then Brian Gray and BAXI turned PNE around and not John Beck. Beck was just the crappy bit in the middle.

McGrath was 8 years before Beck can't see he can be attributed with turning the club around, went further down hill after he left, the Chapman years Sad Sad
