Bob and 1970-71 Footballers is moving!

Due to the intransigence of dial.pipex it has become necessary to move the site for the first time in its 8 year history.

Bare with me whilst the move is being made, I'm trying to do it as quick as I can, but I am allowing myself 6 months to complete the process.

Consequently there are going to be NO MORE UPDATES on this original site. And in the month of the site's 9th birthday it will cease to exist at all

Please now visit

See you there!

Poll 2

Norman Giller has been in touch with his latest book. Over to you Norman:-

It is called Footballing Fifties, and is an in-depth look at what I call 'the decade when the Beautiful Game was in black and white. I spotlight just about everything that happened in a two-faced era when players were treated like soccer slaves, yet provided some of the most exciting and adventurous football ever witnessed.

I give you Matthews and Finney, Lofthouse and Milburn, Shackleton and Mannion, Billy Wright and the great John Charles (he would be worth more today than the entire Leeds team put together!)

The final chapter is a poll on the decade I am inviting people to vote on their favourites players of the decade and there is a full breakdown of all the leading contenders at

Anybody taking part in the poll will be offered the book (due for publication in the Autumn) at a discount price.

Jimmy Greaves is providing the introduction, and a 1950s 'fantasy' team - in the good old 2-3-5 formation should be sent to \par

I will do my best to send a personal reply to anybody who takes the trouble to vote.
