    39yrs ago today Alex

    Sabella made his BLADES debut,what a wonderful talented player he was the only problem was our club was on a downward spiral,TC had gone to Leeds and Woody was comin to the end of his BLADES career.UTCB

    ...and shin pads were definitely out of fashion for young Blades..! I still have the scars, thanks Alex. And to think if it hadn't been for FFP we could have had Maradonna as well.

    No one comes close in my estimation to TC mate,the closest is the late gr8 WOODY but Alex signed at the wrong time for us,he was on a different planet to the rest of our players at the time,given that as i said previously WOODY was comin to the end of his BLADES career.UTCB

    Never saw him play and lead to believe I missed something rather special

    Same goes for TC

    Yes this exactly , loved him bit those dirty ****s on boxing day did us good style , Didn't Mick Speight get carried off as well , and we had a Black goal keeper at the time , Derek Richardson if I am not mistaken , I hope this not an omen for 24th September!!!

    39 years ago !! that's ridiculous
