    Denis Law once scored six goals in an FA Cup tie against Luton , the game got abandoned muddy pitch I think , City lost the rearranged game 2-1 ,Law also scored that one .

    Dennis Law's transfer money paid for new floodlights. I'm afraid there has always been a small minded mentality at Town, Shankly didn't do an amazing job for us so we perhaps didn't foresee what he would go on to achieve. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, Herbert Chapman did well for us in the 20s though.

    Fairly certain that Liverpool were in the second division when Bill Shankly took over but football has changed so much. Blackpool with Matthews, Mortenson and Johnston etc were a top team as were Newcastle with Milburn and the Robledo brothers. Chelsea had a fantastic group of young talent as did Man United with the Busby Babes.

    Now success is to a large extent determined by who has money and spends wisely.

    Well if they had let him buy the two players mentioned which he did when he got to Liverpool you could have been 6 times Euro Champs now :p

    I could do that as well, now I can't even pronounce most of the players names. :(

    They were in 2nd division, they were probably seen as a smaller team than Town at the time.

    Shearer had a clause in his contract that he was always to be the best paid player, Owen coming in on £120k a week probably increased his pay but pricked his ego.

    Old blokes who used to play for Newcastle, and now punt themselves as television commentators, are hardly to be trusted.

    It's not like they played for Chelsea, a team with a great moral backbone.

    Which part? I believe it to be factually correct, I never said one was better than the other. Shearer was obviously the better, more consistent striker in the PL.

    Sky Blues 3-2 over Blackpool, we're on our way back. Remember the Trevor Francis transfer? We were the only side that could match the fee!

    Barkley has started for England and Mason Mount is on the bench. This means they could beat Bulgaria, but Southgate should have picked Tammy Abraham to make sure.

    The Chelsea striker is deadly at the moment, whereas Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford and Callum Wilson, are plodding in comparison.

    England have done very little since John Terry was captain.
