Sir Geoff's Garage Sale
Mick Ewins' watercolour of Sir Geoff getting his World Cup Final hatrick
Today's the big day for Sir Geoffrey who is selling off a number of his prize footballing possessions at Christie's for charity. For instance a 1970 World Cup cap can be picked up for a mere 3-4,000 pounds. The picture above is available at a snip for 2-3,000 quid. Hopefully, you'll have missed it before you've read this, so think of all the money that's saved you !
Football365.com has the following report on the sale ...
Manager of the Month
Bobby Robson (Ipswich Town manager)- the longest serving football manager in the Premiership - is the most recent Manager of the Month, winning the August award for taking his Newcastle United team to the top of the league. See http--www.nufc.co.uk
Your Chance to be a Champion ... like Harry Redknapp !
Hot Football's advert is being promoted by Harry Redknapp. With a picture of a tracksuited Harry, he is quoted as saying, 'What an amazing opprtunity, to play at a professional ground, in front of your own fans and become English champions of your division.For adult and youth players in local sides it cannot get any better than this'.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow ...
Sky T.V. pundit and Bob 70-71 favourite, Rodney Marsh is as good as his word, if not his predictions. Rodders said that if Bradford City were to stay in the Premiership last season, he would have his head shaved bald. And that is precisely what happened on both acoounts. The Bantams are fighting out their second season in the Premiership, and Marsh agreed to have his head shaved in front of the City crowd to raze (ho,ho) money for charity.
World Cup Newsplayer
www.newsplayer.com are using a picture of England's World Cup win in 1966 to advertise the launch of their site which shows news reels from 1896 onwards. The picture shows Bobby Moore kissing the Jules Rimet trophy whilst George Cohen looks on. A quick visit to the sites reveals that if you're prepared to cough up the 25 quid subscription there's plenty of clips relevant to this site, indeed they even offer an interview between Jack (Leeds United) and Bobby Charlton, prior to the World Cup Final for free.

Big Fan of ... Epilepsy
With the sort of computer wizardry unlikely to trouble these pages for the next week or (fifty) two, Harry Redknapp and his son, Jamie have now got their own home pages at Big Fan Of Harry Redknapp and Big Fan Of Jamie Redknapp. There's not too much content yet and the sound and graphics are likely to have you either diving behind the settee or suffering an epileptic fit. Nevertheless Harry's site does offer a video in which he pays tribute to Bobby Moore and shows you the poster of him with Pele that he keeps behind his desk. See Picture
They'll know this already, but I'd forgotten about it. Roger Morgan (Tottenham Hotspur) has a twin brother who was in the QPR team in 70-71 season. Whilst both have been part of the pages for a while now, they've not been linked on the Sons and Daughters : Brothers page until now. The brothers are mentioned on the news from 25th September, 1970.
