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:

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.

Probably one of @Mrs Steve R vegan monstrosities, no wonder he chucked it back

The consensus amongst players is that Billy Whitehurst was the toughest, most feared player. A bricklayer who had the odd bare knuckle fight for money was not to be messed with.

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”

Scoular was a hard bloke, the city player who chinned Clough was Danny Malloy, another headcase.
