Nobody Puts Leo in the Corner

My co-commentator James Harrison has a habit of hitting the nail on the head, and last Monday he made a succinct point which, in the space of one sentence, summed up the beauty of that win over York better than ninety minutes of my ranting had.

That year was the launch pad for Brian Flynn’s long spell of success in the Racecourse hot seat, so going back to that future is something to embrace. The 1992-3 season saw us emerge from the grim darkness … Continue reading Back to 1992
