Bloody hell, was that really 37 years ago ? I remember that game well and the quote from the Chelsea keeper, Peter Borota, about one of Brooking's goals.
I knew exactly what he was going to do but I couldn't do anything about it he said afterwards.
I wonder if the likes of Brooking and Devonshire were playing in today's game if they would have stayed with the club ?
Having read Sir Trev's autobiography I genuinely think he would have stayed,he had a few good chances to leave Arse being one,but when it came down to it he just couldn't leave,I was at one game it must have been a relegation season close to the end,lots of rumours he could be going when as one the whole stadium was filled with more than a few choruses of "don't go Trevor,don't go Trevor,don't go" it bought tears to his eyes,and the rest as they say is history.
