    The right full-back he was up against that day was Graham Wilkins (Ray's brother). He ran him so ragged he ended up being sent off for one foul too many.

    A very exciting player to watch jinxing past defenders at speed. Amazing winger. I got meself one of those Peter Barnes trainer balls for Christmas... they were amazing. You tied it to your shorts hit the ball and it would be tied to elastic so it would come back to you

    got to meet him a couple of times as he was best mates with my cousin who he came through the city ranks with as a junior. I was back in Manc on holidays from Oz in '80 and we caught up with him Owen and McKenzie I think from memory in a pub after WBrom had played at Leeds. Few days later his Dad took me around main road and got to meet all the players and Allison at training.

    Peter Barnes was my favourite player growing up, a brilliant winger. It's a shame he defected over to the other side of the city.

    Peter Barnes, Dennis Tueart & Asa Hartford were my favourite players when I was growing up :-)

    I was at that game with a mate of mine who was playing away.
    He left for an assignation with his lady with the score 1-0.
    I tried to imagine his wife’s reaction when he got home and said we’d only won 1-0.
