  1. I was looking at our 1973-74 title winning results a couple of days ago and if we hadn’t have come good winning our last three we would have blown it even with that great side . 13 games from the end we had a 10 game spell of W 2. D 4. L 4. I mention this to calm down the looneys who are already calling for B Mc D to go . In the circumstances we find ourselves he must be given at least a second full season .
