    Yeah, I had another look when I posted it and clocked it was Arthur Albiston. I blame the hair!

    This was my first season with a season ticket, 84/85.

    I can name all of these apart from one of the keepers and the lad on the back row far right.

    Edit. Remembered who the lad on the right at the back was but had to Google the one keeper I didn't know...

    All correct on the top row and then you've got Graeme Hogg, Norman Whiteside and John Gidman.

    Kevin Moran, Arnold Muhren, Jeff Wealands (I had to Google him), Stephen Pears, Gary Bailey, Alan Brazil and Frank Stapleton.

    Arthur Albiston and the rest of the front row is correct apart from Arthur Graham between Moses and Strachan.

    Ahhh. Whiteside and Brazil looked familiar but couldnt put a name to the face at the time.

    Wealands, Pears and Arthur Graham ring no bells.

    Wealands rarely played but Pears had a few games in the first team.


    Edit. I just Googled Pears' record and he only played 4 times for the first team in 6 years! I thought he played more than that and it seems that Wealands played 3 games more (although 5 of these were when he was on loan in 1983).
    Graham was a Scottish winger who didn't have any tricks.

    Man Utd v Liverpool: The 1915 Good Friday betting scandal



    Four Liverpool players, Tom Fairfoul, Tom Miller, Bob Purcell and Jackie Sheldon, were banned after the matchManchester United against Liverpool is one of football's most intense rivalries but few have been as controversial as Good Friday 1915, when one of British sport's worst betting scandals took place.
    Manchester United against Liverpool is a match which rarely fails to deliver some element of controversy. But the recent Steven Gerrard 38-second red card has nothing on the tie between the clubs 100 years ago.
    On that day, there were "two matches going on at once" during a crucial bottom of the table clash at Old Trafford.
    After an approach by a third party, some players from both sides hatched a plot to rig the game for a 2-0 home win, which eventually saw United avoid relegation.
    "There was the realistic possibility of relegation for both of the sides - so it was an important match," says Graham Sharpe, a sports writer who has researched the fixture.
    Image copyrightMANCHESTER LIBRARIESImage captionUp to 18,000 spectators watched the match at Old Trafford, pictured here in 1920Image copyrightMANCHESTER LIBRARIESImage captionOld Trafford, pictured in 1922, was the venue for "Britain's first authenticated fixed football match""It was overshadowed by the First World War, which had been raging for several months, and you could make the case that those players thought to themselves, 'when this season has finished, there may not be one to follow'."
    Many footballers had already signed up to fight, while others played on.
    There were rumours about the honesty of the tie, even before kick-off.
    There were eyewitness accounts of the two sets of players meeting up in Manchester pubs to discuss the outcome, before bets were placed at up to 8/1.
    Bookmakers were naturally suspicious if they saw "significant amounts of bets" on one particular outcome or score, Mr Sharpe says.
    A crowd of up to 18,000 witnessed one of the fixture's most extraordinary passages, when United were 1-0 up and won a penalty.
    Patrick O'Connell, a centre half and the side's captain, stepped up and hit it so far wide it nearly hit the corner flag, according to match reports.
    Mr Sharpe explains: "From all reports, he walked back up the pitch laughing as he thought 'well it doesn't matter, we can get another goal whenever we want one'."
    There are accounts of a dressing room row at half-time, with some players who were not in on the plot threatening not to come out for the second half.
    And after United got a second goal, the bet was nearly ruined when Liverpool forward Fred Pagnam hit the crossbar.
    "A number of his teammates gestured angrily towards him," Mr Sharpe says.


    "It's almost as if there were two matches going on at once."
    Suspicions were raised almost immediately after the game, with an inquiry announced shortly afterwards.
    Later that year, Liverpool players Tom Fairfoul, Tom Miller, Bob Purcell and Jackie Sheldon and United's Enoch West, Sandy Turnbull and Arthur Whalley received lifetime bans.
    Lawrence Cook, of Chester, and Manchester City's Fred Howard were also banned for their parts in the scam.
    The Football Association said the players had "sought to undermine the whole fabric of the game and discredit its honesty and fairness."
    Players were then called up to fight in the war.
    Image copyrightNATIONAL FOOTBALL MUSEUMImage captionSandy Turnbull was killed in the First World WarWhen they returned, many had their bans lifted in recognition of their war efforts, while Turnbull received a posthumous pardon as he was fatally wounded at Arras in 1917.
    However, Enoch 'Knocker' West, who had refused to admit his role in the plot and even sued the FA for libel, was not pardoned and remained banned from football for 30 years.
    A recent campaign to clear his name has stalled because the FA said his documents were lost.



    Cheating bastards!

    Probably took a detour through the blue area to wind them up.

    I doubt it took long, only a few houses.
