    Goodness, that’s brought back some rather dark, suppressed, Karl Ready related memories.

    I can’t recall who our opponents were but I remember one match being soundtracked by Bobby Gould screaming at his players to “wait for Karl Ready” every time we won a free kick or corner. As the match (inevitably) drifted away from us I can vividly remember Gould’s instructions becoming increasingly desperate, “wait for Karl Ready, Wait for Karl FUCKING Ready!”.

    Dark days.

    I was most gratified by your inclusion of Tom Bradshaw under “T”, although who or what else would merit inclusion. However, I was a tad disappointed he wasn’t included under “B” instead.
