Don't have to keep saying I love your work CH.
Great pics of stars with cars. Gotta laugh at Phil Thompson, fancy parking your car anywhere in Liverpool. :) :)

An Arsenal photocall at Highbury from 1935. Left to right: George Male, Eddie Hapgood, Wilf Copping, manager George Allison, Cliff Bastin, Ted Drake, and trainer Tom Whittaker. The 1930s was the most successful decade in Arsenal's history, bringing five titles and two FA Cups
Image
Chelsea's Harry Medhurst and Danny Winter, along with Charlton's Bill Robinson, wait for across to come into the penalty area during a match between the London clubs at The Valley in February, 1947. Chelsea claimed a 3-2 win that day, but both teams struggled throughout the Division One season. Chelsea eventually finished 15th, with Charlton 19th
Image
Fulham goalkeeper Ian Black rushes out of goal to take the ball away from John Aston during a match against Manchester United in 1950. Aston played for United for eight years, as did his son in future years. The game at Craven Cottage, played a week before Christmas, ended in a 2-2 draw, with Stan Pearson scoring twice for United
Image
Manchester City goalkeeper Bert Trautmann turns his back on the play as snow is blown into his face during an FA Cup fifth round clash with Luton in February, 1955. City won 2-0 that day on their way to reaching the final. The following year, City were again in the final, beating Birmingham, a match famous for the great Trautmann breaking his neck and carrying on playing
Image
Bolton goalkeeper Joe Dean bends down to take the ball from the feet of Wolves centre-forward Jimmy Murray, who is battling with Roy Hartle, in this clash from February 1956. Wolves won 4-2 that day at Molineux, and eventually finished third, behind Manchester United and Blackpool
Image
Another picture here from Molineux in February, 1956. Manchester United goalkeeper Ray Wood and Duncan Edwards jump high to clear away the danger from a Wolves attack spearheaded by Jimmy Murray. On the left is a young Bobby Charlton, who would go on to become a United and England great. United manager Matt Busby's famous 'Busby Babes' were 2-0 winners on the day, with two goals from Tommy Taylor, on their way to winning the league title. Tragically, two years later Edwards died from injuries suffered in the Munich Air Disaster. Wood and Edwards were both survivors of the tragedy
Image
Bobby Smith (centre) pounces to score Tottenham's first goal during their European Cup quarter-final clash with Czech champions Dukla Prague at White Hart Lane in 1962. Smith scored twice on the night, with Dave Mackay also helping himself to a brace, as Spurs secured their place in the semi-finals with a 4-1 victory in the snow, going through 4-2 on aggregate
Image
The bitter winter months of early 1963 decimated the football programme across the country. In the above picture, Orient manager Johnny Carey looks on as a member of the Brisbane Road ground staff tries to break the ice covering the pitch in a vain bid to get the pitch playable for an FA Cup third round clash with Hull. The match was eventually played a month later, finishing in a 1-1 draw, before Orient won the replay 2-0. Below, another picture from the fateful winter of early 1963. Here, Brighton fans watch the players warming up before a match
Image
Image
We go back to 1954 here, and an FA Cup fourth round replay between Portsmouth and Scunthorpe at Fratton Park. Pompey goalkeeper Mervyn Gill fails to save an effort from Merfyn Jones, with Scunthorpe's James Whitfield, and Portsmouth pair Leo Phillips and Jack Mansell looking on
Image
The snow-covered pitch and terraces of Selhurst Park here in March, 1965, the day before an FA Cup sixth round match between Crystal Palace and Leeds was due to be played. The match was postponed and instead played a few days later, with Leeds comfortable 3-0 winners
Image
Manchester City great Colin Bell scores against Tottenham in December, 1967. City played some fantastic football that day and claimed a 4-1 win, on their way to winning the title. The match was shown on that evening's Match of the Day, and became known as 'The Ballet On Ice'
Image
A rather sad picture above from 1962, as a schoolgirl and her dog play on a snow covered and deserted Peel Park in 1962. Accrington Stanley withdrew from the Football League that year, and they wouldn't return until 44 years later, in 2006. Below, Chelsea's Stamford Bridge ground is covered in snow in a picture from 1969 - it's amazing to see how different the west London ground looked in the past
Image
Image
The above picture shows a UEFA Cup clash between Leeds and Portuguese outfit Vitoria Setubal in 1973. Leeds great Billy Bremner is pictured on the right. Below, members of the Crystal Palace youth team help prepare the pitch at Selhurst Park for a clash with Chelsea in January, 1971. The match between the two London clubs ended in a 0-0 draw, in front of a crowd of 40,489
Image
Image
An FA Cup third round tie here from 1971, with Charlton's Dave Shipperley tackling Hull's Chris Simpkin. Hull claimed a 3-0 win and claimed further wins in the competition against Blackpool and Brentford, before going down to a 3-2 home defeat by Stoke in the sixth round
Image
Wrexham's Steve Watkin slides through the Racecourse Ground snow to tackle West Ham's Tim Breacker during an FA Cup third round clash at the Racecourse Ground in January 1997. A 1-1 draw in Wales was followed by a fabulous 1-0 win for the Welsh outfit in the replay at Upton Park. Wrexham went all the way to the sixth round of the competition that year, where they eventually lost to Chesterfield
