If you look closely there's a defender wide barely on the screen who looks like he's playing him on.

I remember that game and I'm pretty certain it was allowed.

What!

How very dare you sir.

Next you’ll be claiming that the England ‘goal’ didn’t cross the line in the ‘66 Cup Final.

Go and wash your mouth out with soap young man!

It was definitely NOT offside. There was one defender who was shown to be playing him on when the ball was played.

However, I don't think that his 2nd goal would be allowed these days!

This game shows just how good John was 👍🏻



In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

Not sure why the goal early on was disallowed.  

Rees and Woods were really sublime when they were on form.  I wouldn’t rank either in our top 3 strikers but maybe our best pair of forwards?

Oddly enough, I remember feeling a bit disappointed as I left the game (despite the promotion) because we had been pretty poor in the second half and rode our luck. I think Murray Jones did as much for Exeter in that game as he did during his whole time a BP!

Some great football on show, however. Look at the home record back then as well:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1990%E2%80%9391_Football_League#Second_Division

16 wins out of 23 games. In comparison, we've only managed 16 home wins since our return to the League over 2 years ago!

How fantastic to see the high open corners packed compared to today's flat soulless empty spaces with just litter and tumbleweed blowing around


I don't actually want to say I told you so, but, intercourse it, I did

That's a really good shout.

Amond and Bogle will get mentions but whilst I think Amond taught Bogle an awful lot and the sheer amount of goals they scored was unreal, I don't think they were a a great pairing as such, not in the sense of Woods and Rees who seemed to have a telepathic understanding of where the other was.  Add to the mix Gary Childs who quite often used to tune into their frequency and benefit from their back-heels.

Rees especially was  found out at a higher level but it was a joy to watch them when on song.

Errr...Chris Jones and Adam Proudlock??
