So that's what he does!

Talking of legends.....and Bob Latchford

I always remember when Billy Butler was the stadium anouncer for us...some of his tannoy statements were legendary..

There used to be a flag hanging from the upper gwladys st..." bobby latchford walks on water"
Butler anounces over the tannoy during the match...
" can the person in upper gwladys street with the bob latchford flag please pull it in...we've just had an offer off derby county for him.."
for you young ones on here....The Derby's pitch was basically a muddy water laden bog at the time..i remember watching some of the players actually laughing...

Another one from butler....we were playing a foreign team in the cup winners cup at the time and there was only about 6 away fans there....."will all the away supporters please remain in the ground for ten minutes after the game please....your taxi is going to be late.."

He always said them during the game as well which was the reason they stopped him doing it....the palyers used to be in bulk...

Had them all holding their plums.

Baseball ground was always a laugh to go to - neanderthal, man. Auditions for One Million BC every home game.
