The Echo branded the Leeds game at Goodison as one of the dirtiest ever with Sandy Brown getting sent off after only five minutes. The ref took both teams off after about half and hour to calm down. They didn't !

Derek, yes it was the season of the infamous game against newly promoted Leeds who from that day on cast a stain over the First Division and heralded a new mean spirited era whenever they played, as reflected in the film about Brian Clough.

Im sure I can remember someone playing for us on the left wing with his arm in a sling.

Can't say I recall either of these two games but I vividly remember our greatest victory at Anfield earlier that season in which Rankin played (out of his skin!) - I think Westie might have been injured as I recall that the result was unexpected as we were forced to play an injury hit eleven.

Yoz aka Graham Hughes, being almost two years younger than myself was probably under a shorter parental leash at the time. I think regular joint attendance along with some others from school probably came the following season. However he did go with me to the rearranged derby game in April 1965; won 2-1.
