    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.

    Now I know where the saying "he played a blinder" comes from

    Shows how good Waggy was, walks round Peter Bonetti and also put Gordon Banks on his backside twice. A the time two of englands top keepers.

    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.

    It was a fabulous day - we were behind the goal and slightly off to the left for a great view. It was good to silence the Chelsea taunts of "pussycats" in a game we could have won had it not been for Jack Taylor's poor eyesight. He missed a definite penalty when their defender cleared a header off the line with both hands on the first half - we could see it from the other end of the park.

    I spoke to Jock Davidson once when I saw him in Grandways in Anlaby, and he never forgave Jack Taylor for that incident.

    I still have the program from that game at home.

    Can you answer this for me John as my memory is failing me ? I was at both of those Chelsea games too, but have forgotten who it was who took the free kick that led to Waggy's goal in the clip you posted above (# 1963) ? My mate & I had hitch-hiked down from Leeds for the Stamford Bridge game & were standing in line with the spot the freekick was taken from ? Was it Denis Butler (our left back) or someone else (maybe Ken Houghton as he took a fair number of our free kicks). I can't tell from the video clip.
    Cheers.

    To be honest, I can't remember either, but just looked back at the clip and I'm pretty sure that looks like Mick Milner from his body shape.

    I wonder if anyone has any photographs of the last game at BP and the first two games at The KC, I could use for an article I am writing. Copies of originals are fine, I will acknowledge in the article. I can only use images that are copyright free, or I have the right to use. The images will appear in the next edition of the Tigermag.
    Any memories that you have of the first time you entered the KC.
    I am looking for particular memories of the significant games played at the KC and KCOM. The Watford home game that got us into the play-offs, the tense waiting for the result of the Watford/Leeds game and your favourite goal.
    Other stuff like the school kids "Who are ya" chant, Brownies singing, will help.

    I went to that match. I don't think I have any pictures of it although I did buy the 360 degree one that the club made. I don't know where that is! Doom and gloom so far, I know but … I do have some shots of Boothferry Park inside after it closed. I used to park there when I went to the KC and I went in a few times. I got a piece of 'turf' during one of them. Turf is an exaggeration. It's in the garden of my old house as it was too small to work out where it was when I moved. Are you interested in the piccies?

    I hope this comes through. It's Boothferry Park in January 2008. You just had to walk through the open gate. Boothferry Park 002.jpg

    I've also got pictures from Wembley in 2008 and the cup final, including the scoreboard showing Arsenal 0 Hull City 1.

    No pictures of the play or players @ the final B.P. game, but have a photo of quite a few ex-Tigers autographs who attended that last game.
    They signed the inside of Waggy's biography. A couple of days before that final game on a trip home I popped into Waggy's club in Hessle to buy a few copies of his book. (my ma lived in Hessle so I was staying there). Waggy invited me to come down early for the game on the Saturday and that he would introduce me to some of the ex-Tigers for me to get their autographs, which he did.

    I posted a copy on this thread (Post # 533, page 27 above). Feel free to use if you wish.

    That picture makes me feel rather sad.

    It does me too. Unfortunately, I've got quite a few of them.
