    Notts County

    I don't think so. I know Viv Anderson did and also Dave McVey

    Notts County

    A typical line up from the period 1975-77: McManus, Richards, O'Brien, Probert, Needham, Stubbs, Carter, Vinter, Bradd, Mann & Scanlon That was a team.

    Notts County

    No but I know exactly where I was. 74 Bracebridge Drive at my Nan's house, if I remember correctly the game was held up for about twenty minutes in the second half due to a pitch invasion my Chelsea fans just after we went 2 - 0 up. Dad was going mad as he feared the game would be abandoned and have to be replayed.

    Notts County

    In the summer of 1979, Notts were playing in the pre-season Bass Vase against Derby County, the game was played at the Bass Meadows Sports Ground. As a family we went along, and as normal we draped our banner over the railings. The banner said " Arthur Super Bionic Mann", Mum being massive fan of the under-rated Scottish midfielder. (Does anybody on the site remember our banner?) Anyway after the final whistle, Jimmy Sirrell made a point of coming over to us and thanking us for our support. He then asked us if we had an autograph book, my brother happened to have his with him, Jimmy said wait there, took the autograph book and returned 10 minutes later with all the player's authographs.

    Notts County

    League Cup fourth round reply in November/December 1975 beating Everton 2 -0 having previously beaten Leeds Utd at Elland Road. Les Bradd get both goals, we stood in the County Road stand and it was literally rocking " Super Notts, dadada, Super Notts dadada..."

    The Old Market Square

    Roger, yes they were. My Dad was on this rota when it went OMO in 1971, at the time the rota also covered the 11, 12, 14, 21 and 24 routes to West Bridgford, the "Cinderella" 45 route and the very boring 26 route between Elmhurst Avenue, Carlton and Godfrey Road, Netherfield. The rotas were split when Trent Bridge re-opened as an operational depot in 1973, with the West Bridgford routes transferring back there. Dad transferred to Trent Bridge at this time.

    Buses in Nottingham

    MD, NCT never operated Crossleys, and, being Leeds City Transport, I presume that the bodywork would have been built by Roe, a bodybuilder NCT only favoured for trolleybuses, until a batch of 10 Leyland Atlanteans (471-480, NNN471-480W) in 1981

    Things that pee you off

    Make sure its a FoxPro40, its the one I use. Always good to be next to the player that's been giving you the most grief, and then blowing for full time right by his ear.

    The NCT bus is of interest as it is one of the ex WBUDC AEC Regents, fleetnumber possibly 281
