As nice a bloke as he was, Darren Purse would take some stopping, remember him hitting that punch bag machine on the telly, he's got a serious right hand.

Ark at Sprake “I’ll just sit down here and pretend that I have cramp” :hehe:

Cracking left hook that fair play


I’ve been thinking about it and it may have been in Jack Charltons autobiography where he said along the line of “ whenever we was in a pub and it got a little too heavy we’d just give Gary a shout and he’d go and sort em out”
Gary Sprake was Wales' first choice goalie for about ten years, prone to the odd howler but a decent keeper who played at the top level.

He must’ve had a bet on when he threw that ball in his own net :hehe:

Excellent thread.

We all hate cheats and divers , even in our own team (you reading this Murphy?)

We bemoan the way the game has gone but at the same time forget how tough the game actually was back in the day until you watch these clips.

I'd also draw the distinction between tough and dirty - some of the clips are toe to toe punch ups, not cowardly two footed leg breaking tackles. Bloody marvellous.

Sprake was a loony, when we played Leeds in the cup in 1972 someone threw a pasty at him, he picked it up, took a bite, and threw it back in the Grange end.

That was on Match Of The Day. 0.2? I was in the Canton waving my newly knitted scarf off my Nan. God bless her.

Not so much a fight to one sided ,but l remember being a young kid watching a City V Jacks Welsh Cup game when the legend Don Murray sparked out one of the Jacks sadly we were 3 up at the time but finally lost 5-3.Would love to know what triggered Don to react like that after all he was such a gentle soul on the pitch:hehe:

Whenever I go home, not so often now, I always used to see Don Murray in the Cross Keys, Dinas Powys. Always get him a pint, and he's always time for a chat. Not been home for a few years now, but whenever I saw him he still looked like he could handle himself, if he had to. Legend is an over used word, but Don was right up there and one of the nicest blokes you could ever wish to meet. Hope he's still well.

Wasn’t that the game Bill Irwin won match of the days save of the season?
Yes I think it was, two years later we drew them again in the fa cup up at their place, absolute war zone before and after the game, hairy as fuck trying to get back to the station.
