Toxteth O'Grady

An evening with '91 legends

Recommended Posts

Probably, although  not sure they can have any stories left at this point that we haven't heard half a dozen times before!

I agree, we have probably milked the whole 1991 thing for more than it's worth, although it will probably still be worthwhile.

Happy to celebrate that historic day at every opportunity!

Although, it would be nice to have another memory like that to look back on now that we are all 30 years older!

Agreed, as great as it was for those of us who were there and for the club , we will always remember it, but all of the Anniversary date stuff, talks with legends etc has been done to death, it was 30 years ago ffs, all we should get now is an update on the club twitter, " on this day 30 years ago etc we won the cup", we all like the tweet and move on.

Mixed thoughts, I’ve never participated in any of the commemorative things before, I didn’t even travel for the bus parade the day after.  An on-line thing is now part of life.  In some ways if the players still get something out of it I would be happy to join in.

It's a nice little way to raise some funds for the youth academy, and a chance for those fans who are interested to listen to some of the old stories for an hour or so.

Remember the '52 guys saying nobody ever asked them about their final until 1991. Changed days.

We should change things up a bit and have an evening with the 2005 CIS Cup Final team where they pay us £5 and the Q&A consists mostly of "what the hell were you doing?"

Looking forward to doing g the same with this current squad in 30 years time. Should be some banter, and maybe as a wee "this is your life" style surprise they can all meet Eddie Nolan for the first time.

I assume the vast majority, if not all of the people who will be there will have been at the game in 91 so  they have probably heard "the old" Stories a dozen times, so whats the point.

Raising funds for the youth academy is a great idea but the club could have been a bit more creative in deciding what fund raiser to implement. 

An event centering around the current players / club, with the 91 players involved as a nod to the cup win, comparing new and old styles,  can this years squad repeat the win etc would have been appealing to a wider audience of fans of all ages, instead of the "Tam Cowan, asking Patterson or Nijholt for another funny story from the cup that year, or was Colin O'Neil really a psycho"  format that's been done to death.

"Do you recognise this voice?"

"Naw."

It's not like this is the only fund raiser there's ever going to be. For all the people who aren't interested, if it's not for you then fine but some people will be interested.  As others have said above some want to celebrate the day whenever they can, some haven't taken part in any events before or there might be younger supporters who haven't heard any of the stories before and want to know more.

I don't know why everyone thinks this is such a big mystery. Here he is in his last game at Crewe, just before he signed for us.

Surprised we didn't pay an inflated transfer fee.
