Two brothers who both played for us but never in the same match played one match on opposing sides. Bonus point for naming the match.
Don't know this one.... perhaps another from a long time back? 70's or earlier?
Keep an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.

Well, I still couldn't remember but found a grainy youtube clip. So it was Wicks, Micklewhite, Allen and Wallace. I must have been the worse for wear that day - my family motto, Omnes Blotto.
That was some team.

That was one of the first games I attended without my Dad, who used to take me a long once or twice a year as a nipper... I took a mate with me and on the train up to London we where deciding which game to go to; he was a Gooner... I persuaded him to check out the glorious plastic pitch and I think he enjoyed it. Afterwards he was a bit pissed with me when we heard that the Arsenal also won 4-0 on that day...

Roger and Ian Morgan..? I guess you could say the match they played on opposing sides was Spuds v QPR (Roger for the Spuds and Ian for us)

Was it Pat and Ray Brady. If so I guess the match was against Millwall

Which regular penalty taker for us never missed one in the hoops, but missed one for England?
Jim Langley
Correct!

I was wondering if this was going to be Terry Venables who was a great penalty taker and I seem to remember scored something like 32 on the trot but then missed one and refused to take another!

Jim Langley was a great defender but incredibly bow legged - don't know if that was from the way he stood when an attacker was running at him or not?
This time we'll get it right - just believe! :wink:

The only brothers I can remember were the Morgans and the Brady brothers. I think both must have played alongside one another, so I'm stumped. Hang on - the Springett brothers ? They would not have played in the same side as they were both goalies !

You may well be right had not thought of them. The clue is in the question as they say

Well done that man! The Springetts it was. In fact they were part of the same deal , Peter to Sheff Wed and Ron to us so they were never at the club together. Played in the Sheff Wed Vs QPR game in Dec 1968. We lost 4-0.

As a lad, I could have named every score, every scorer, the opposition, when the goals were scored, who was on the bench etc etc

These days I can't even remember who our last game was against !!!

ah Ron Springett - should have got that as dates back to when I started supporting the R's and saw his brother move out and he came back, to the excitement of my two uncles, Stan and Dennis.

Sadly it seemed a bad move for Ron as I just saw what I was assured was a great goalie go into rapid decline.

I remember a game played at White City where I was standing at the front behind the goal (so it seemed miles away) and someone had a shot from distance. Ron confidently held up his hand to indicate it was OK as it would go wide...

My young self (9) watched unbelieving as it sailed inside the post so now I always have a modicum of sympathy for players who say they want to retire at the top.

Who were our opponents in a game where we had no shots on target but won 1-0? Bonus for the goal scorers name. 8)
