Comments about On This Day: Big Bob Bags Four!
As a lad in the 70's I remember seeing Big Bob with binoculars from the top balcony, we were playing Notts F or Utd, not sure, there was chaos in the oppositions 6 yards box bodies piling up more than in an Arnie movie, next thing you know "The Latch" has got his hand up and the ball was in the net. It was only when i got home and watch MoTD that i realised he had bundled the ball over the line with his arse !. A real goal poacher, beast and superb header of the ball, i think he is sometimes under appreciated as our number 9 of that time, and 10k for 30 goals, seemed like a fortune back then.
