    I know the purple silk pennnant given by the captain of Fiorentina to John Kaye before the start of our Anglo Italian cup game there in 1973 was in the skip, clearly deemed to be of as much value as a pair of Billy Whitehurst's soiled jockey shorts.

    Happily someone, as you say, spotted it and saved it.

    I do know that someone's partner rescued two boxes of discarded photos from the abandoned offices at BP where they had been left to rot and get damp.

    This was on Adam Pearson's watch.

    He certainly was, I can remember that goal going in and we went ballistic behind the goal, it really was a special moment and still up there with one of my best City away days.
