both domestically and on the European fronts when the Ridsdale reqime pumped all those                               
millions into the Club only to see it crumble away.   Did you agree with the investment

players would be there signing autographs and mingling with the fans after their training                               
sessions.   Now they are miles away behind closed doors at Thorpe Arch.   Do you feel that                               
trying to restore the family club to Leeds possibly by the redevelopment of Fullerton Park

Re: Alan 'Sniffer' Clarke

Good work Heyho.

One of Clarke's suggestions was Scunny and Hull fans having a huge celebration together on the Humber Bridge when they both got promoted in the early 80's. Strangely this never happened.

I saw him in that millennium suite shed thing over the other side of Lowfields Road towards the end of last season and yeah he does.:D

Better singer though

No mention of the woofter story?

Re: Alan 'Sniffer' Clarke

I spent  a brilliant  afternoon with clarkey whilst at the club on business, I say business, I did fuck all while he just reeled off the stories, especially about  the Bayern final, which he maintains we were cheated out of:
" Beckenbauer came up after the game and said  he was sorry; he fouled me and it was a pen, said 'you'd have won the game after that,'  The ref had been given a Rolex or similar by the Bayern board, it was a done deal.We never had chance.'
Didn't ask him about clough, too much in awe. But U recall he dropped him into midfield and was seen as a favourite -sorry I missed the call for questions.

A few years back I saw him at a game, traffic stopped- he was in the middle of elland road surrounded by about 50 people and ran up thinking he was getting attacked; nope, he was telling anecdotes, saying how we should play and writing autographs  10 mins before kick off.

You can't buy class like that. Still looked like he'd give you a whack if you had a go.
