    A lot of guys grew up with Saints and Greavsie, play football with your boys club on Saturday morning on the red ash then go home and watch Saints and Greavsie.

    Not me though, before my time.

    I thought Greavsie was dead, probably confusing him with another player who was in England's World Cup winning squad.

    Anyway, this news put this song back in my head for the first time in a while:

    Saint and
    Greavsie talk about the Endsleigh League as if it's im-
    Portant
    Saint and Greavsie talk about the Endsleigh Football Lea-eague

    That would’ve been a good show to watch on a Sunday after you had done your paper round

    Only Mick Channon left now, from those football shows.

    I remember him saying once, when he got off the England bus, in Glasgow, that the first thing a Scottish fan said to him, was "Remember Bannockburn!"

    I remember Channon carried on the story saying, it was a midweek game, which England won at Hampden, 5-1 I seem to recall, but the next morning they'd done a training session with the Scottish players and as they were getting ready to leave, he'd reminded Archie Gemmel about England winning the 4 nations match to which Archie replied "Aye, but we beat you in the gym this morning!"
