The book captures all the classic encounters, both home and away, since Herb first graced Brisbane Road back in 1968. There’s the promotion clincher at Bradford in 1970, the cup classics and Villa heartache of the seventies, followed by the memorable matches of Frank Clark’s reign – Godfrey’s two goals against the Spurs, Castle’s last minute equaliser against the Hammers and even a 5-4 defeat against Hull after being 4-1 up with twenty to play.
Remember again the Wrexham play-off victory in ’89, followed by some golden games from the dark days of the nineties – The Elleray experience against Brentford, that first away win for two years at Northampton and a play-off semi-final victory at Rotherham in ’99.
There are the memorable matches from the new century – that 4-1 cup win at Pompey, the Kassam thriller in ’06 and the Tehoue moment against the Gooners in 2011.
60 golden games, guaranteed to bring back many a happy memory for all O’s everywhere. The book is available on Amazon at £12.99, and will be on as sale in the Supporter’s Club before and after the Port Vale game next Saturday.
