    Booth played alongside Big Dave Watson at the heart of our defence almost exactly 41 years ago at the San Siro in the famous 2-2 draw with Milan
    God knows what these two would have thought of our defence midweek..
    Bell played alongside Asa Hartford in midfeld and of course a young Paul Power who scored after running the length of the pitch to score

    Happy Birthday Tommy Booth.

    Had a spell in hospital in March his brother was on the same ward and Mr Booth visited every day along with some other ex blues.
    My dad who is a red said one of his old workmates would have fainted at being in the same room as Tommy as he was his hero in the seventies.

    I had the great good fortune to have week's holiday in Tenerife in the same hotel as him and his Mrs. He was a an absolute scream. It was the best week's holiday EVER!!
    He was a great player for us over many years.
