That will bring the crowds back

All is missing is tommy on a megaphone in the back of a car yelling "come out to the game"

Old Greek/Italian looking fella?....curly grey hair on the sides going bald on top no teeth...

Probably .... doubt he would get a health clearance nowadays.
As a side issue .... it's appropriate with what's going on with the Big 4 contract .... that the reunion is called in memory of the Magpies losing Boyd, Dorahey and Brown to bloody Manly all those years ago. Talk about recurring nightmare! :brick:

Looking forward to it.

Have never been to Lidcombe Oval. Sounds like it would be an awesome day.
Bruce Clark would be an absolute monster nowadays wouldn't he? Was a huge man back in his playing days. Is Alan Neil Mick Neil's brother?

Good old Mick, what a fantastic heart and soul player he was. Was Alan any good? What position did he play?

Alan was a great player too, very talented very skilful...a bit more solid than Mick but about the same height, he played in the halves as well...was one of my faves in the 80s
